My stupid question - What does it mean to "send me the request"?  Is it a request for additional tips that are not posted in the discussion board?  If so, I would like to get on the list myself.  Thanks.

I am Canadian and live in Toronto.  Was raised in the Bay Area idolizing the Warriors as a kid.  Now a dual citizen.  So my allegiances were split about 60-40% (leaning toward Raptors) during the Finals.  Fortunately I placed all of my wagers on the Raptors.  new_pleased

Canadians are all on hot streaks!  CB, are you from Toronto?

While I enjoyed the Raptors' victory, it was sad to witness the probable ending of the Warriors successful run.  I have been a Warrior fan since my youth living in the Bay Area.  I think that the success of the team of talented and rich athletes had to end soon if not now.  I think that they got fat and lazy, which showed in their lack of conditioning and focus that led to their many serious injuries unlike the hungrier Raptors.  It seems that all successful pro athletes end up in the same decline.   Here is an interesting analysis of their loss:

The GS injuries are all part of the NBA Fix to create drama and influence betting.  Why are none of the Raptors getting injured?  Are they stronger and more in shape than the Warriors?  If the Warriors were not getting "injured", who would bet on the Raptors?

My thinking is that Durant and Cousins will not play at all.  They suffered significant injuries already and will not jeopardize big paydays to help the Warriors in what promises to be a brutal and closely contested series against the hungrier Raptors.  Durant is due for a career-boosting mega-contract with probably the Knicks, which would be negatively affected with another serious injury.  Cousins up-and-down value to GS would discourage Kerr from risking the huge change in team chemistry and focus in the middle of the Finals.  Raptors in 6.

Amazing that with the huge and raucous celebration in Toronto, there were zero arrests.  In any US city, you would have seen roving drunken mobs, broken windows, overturned cars, fires, and a lot of arrests.

Hahaha.  I used to bet a lot of games everyday based upon "expert's picks", hunches and favorite teams.  The winning days would alternate with losing days, but the inevitable grinding down by the vig would always take over.  The memories of the big wins would constantly feed my blind hope that other big wins were just around the corner.  After many years of chasing my dreams, I decided around 9 months ago to limit myself to just one bet a day (any sport) and occasionally two bets when I felt a little reckless.  I would limit myself to betting 2% of my account and sometimes 4% if I had especially strong feelings about a game.  I have to admit that I don't win much but it's nice to feel little pressure during my wagered games and to watch games with a relaxed attitude and not wanting to "kick the dog" after a bad betting day.  The big picture is to keep in mind that very few bettors win enough to make a difference in their lives while the majority lose a lot and have constant sour looks on their faces with angry spouses in the background.

Gotta agree.  Kansas will come out determined to get rid of the bad taste of the Kentucky loss.  Kansas has been playing a lot of close games recently and so -1 is really attractive and should rise by gametime tonight.  Other than playing at home, Texas does not have any advantages.  Sometimes it's best not to out-think yourself.

Towards you.  Sorry if I misread the thread.  Skimming the thread, I thought that you had started it leaning toward Washington and then got talked into betting on the Ducks.  Hope you kept the faith in WA like I did. Have to admit that I was sweating toward the end though.

Leonard just bought a mansion near LA...and he just bought one in Toronto.  So rumor mongers are up in a tizzy.  All it really means is that he hates to pay rent and likes to own his own digs.  And he can afford it.

Wizards only 5-18 on road and coming off draining loss to GS last night.  Gotta go with Magic -4 tonight.

Sounds like you thought too much about the game and bet on Oregon.  Ouch!

Oregon has not been the same since losing star Bol Bol for the season.  Going with Washington to win ML.

Good bet!  I chose SDS too.  Don't know why the spread was so small.  Keep posting your picks.  I notice you have been doing it for a few years.

Good bet!  Fresno starts 2 Sr and 3 Jr whereas Cal starts all frosh and sophs plus one transfer Jr all playing new positions.  Poor passing and rebounding too.  And Fresno home crowd is loud and boisterous.  Cal won its last two games at home (barely) so maybe spread will decrease by gametime.

Cal is very weak and disorganized.  Probably will  remain the last place team in the Pac 12.  Other than a transfer Jr, the rest of the team are  sophs and frosh all playing positions that they haven't played before.  Coach Jones is rumored to be gone either before or at the end of the season.  I would be very surprised if Cal stays within 10 of SDS.

Berkeley is cloudy today with 4% chance of sprinkles this afternoon.  So weather is not much of a factor for the game.  With their very tall flankers and Bryce Love back, Stanford should score 30+.  And with their opportunistic D, Cal should score around 20.  So I would guess a Stanford win and Over.
