Random question

In the very unlikely event the raiders get a pick 6, would the TD count and the game be Oakland by 9.

I know the game is suppose to end in OT on a turnover if the team winning creates it.

So just curious if a pick 6 would count. Never seen it happen.

I figure someone in here would know the answer

I definitely agree with you about the road teams being a little more focused because naturally they should be a little less distracted. Obviously need to wait n see what the ML's come out to be to see if it's worth it or not. It could be a fun xmas day sweat.

like most people i see all those ML being very,very safe except for warriors which i think is 65/35 in g.s.w favour so not exactly a lock.....but seeing an individual ML as safe is entirely different from piling one on top of another on top of another..risk increases exponentially obviously and this is the NBA,a rogue result almost ALWAYS pokes its ugly head up.

so anyhow,to play devils advocate...pelicans have shown little sparks of life recently and need wins more than heat do to turn their season around and have one of the best players in the league who can win a game single-handedly,plus decent talent overall tho you wudnt know it from their results...miami can go into big lulls offensively and have dropped sum very winnable games at home and are far from an elite juggernaut.
bulls have a rich history of playing up or down to the competition,seems like big matchups where they are underestimated is wat really motivates them and they need wins in the worst way rite now to get their season on the track it shud be on..i can see a huge effort from them.they definitely have the talent to match thunder if they bring their A game.
whilst its hard to make an argument for the lakers the clippers have been very flaky all season and cannot close a game out...perhaps complacency could do them in here??
again,i cant see rockets with too much chance of an outright result altho they do have a strong head-2-head history and obviously have been trending upwards of late and do have the roster(if they turn up big and spurs are a little off or lazy) to be competitive for sure.......but san antonio is super tough at home and one of the more trustworthy betting propositions in the league when they decide to let all their guys actually play.

so there ya have it,an argument can easily be made for either side in these matchups....personally i wud say to limit it to 3(or 4 MAXIMUM) for a crappier payout....but its your $$$,as long as you are betting wat ya can afford do as you please.



Thanks for chiming in. I agree with a lot of what you said. This would be for house money since December has been good for me. Just feel like taking the Xmas day shot and going for it.

I may leave off Miami, as I agree with your Pelican points.

Miami vs Pelicans - you said it, Pelicans showing some signs and on paper it's a pretty even match up.

Thunder vs Bulls - well of course I would pick Thunder, especially at home, but this Bulls team is unpredictable. Can put up a good fight sometimes.

Warriors vs Cavs - Finals revenge, Lebron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevn Love, enough said.

Spurs vs Rockets - again, Spurs been the much better team. But Rockets at home, with Harden who can put up 45 points and kill your bet.







The way OKC is playing right now, no chance they lose at home to a struggling Bulls team that just lost their inspirational leader in Noah even if he was coming off the bench.

Also the Spurs are lights out. They have covered the spread 6 times in a row and all of them were double digits. They may not cover whatever the spread is but I don't see them losing this game. Houston is overrated trash this year.

I'm thinking about making a huge play and "degenerate" gamble on Xmas day by parlaying the 5 favorites on the money line.

It will be...

Miami ML vs the Pelicans

Thunder ML vs the Bulls

Warriors ML vs the Cavs

Spurs ML @ the Rockets

Clips ML @ the Lakers

Based on some of the spreads I'm seeing I'm guessing this ML parlay will be in the 3-3.5/1 range. Only 2 teams give me a little bit of a scare and that's the Pelicans and the Cavs. The Pelicans are playing a little bit better but I think it will be a stretch for them to go into Miami and leave with a win. Then of course you have the now healthy Cavs. I think the Warriors will want to make a statement in this game to silence some of the critics that think a healthy Cavs team would've beat them last year. Besides those 2 I don't see missing.

Anybody agree or disagree that this is a pretty solid ML parlay for Xmas day.

I don't normally fire 5 team parlays but on the ML and with this particular slate of games I feel compelled.

Feel free to chime in with any thoughts, input etc

Thanks

I meant nothing wrong, just a little joke.What I should have added was that you wrote a very useful post for fellow NHL bettors, with a different perspective on a team that you follow a lot closer than most of us. Thank you for that and your contribution, I hope there are no hard feelings


I know you were messing around. I was being funny as well. No harm at all good sir.

As bettors you gotta be able to identify patterns, streaks etc before they are too far along. This is one of those situations.

It's not too often you stumble across a golden opportunity that could carry on for multiple games. Well one is about to commence and sadly it's against my team. The Sharks are about to embark on a 5 game road trip that kicks off Tuesday in Montreal. The Sharks will head into this trip in the midst of a 6 game skid. The sad reality is there is a very good chance that skid will be double digits when the dust settles. Let's take a deeper look...

@ Montreal on Tuesday: Loss, some can attempt to make an argument that we stand a chance here but I beg to differ. We are struggling to score and it won't come any easier against Condon and the habs in Montreal.

@ Toronto: The only winnable game on this road trip comes against a team that is playing better lately. More importantly the Sharks play Ottawa on the back end of a double header so the struggling Stalock could be in net for this one.

@ Ottawa on a b2b: Loss, whether Stalock or Jones in net we won't stand a chance on the tail of this b2b playing a Sens team that is 10-3-2 in its last 15 homes games.

@ Blackhawks: Loss, I can't tell you the last time the Sharks beat the Hawks, let alone at the United Center. Not happening.

@ LA: Loss, one of the hottest teams in the NHL with Quick playing lights out. Last game of the road trip, again not happening.

Then Sharks then return home to play Colorado which imo will be another loss. The Sharks are historically atrocious (not gonna research the numbers but trust me its absurdly bad) on the first game back after a long road trip. They showed the numbers before and the Sharks were dead last in the NHL over the course of several years. The pattern has continued this year, with losing its first game back after a road trip. Most recently to Minnesota and the Blackjawks on the last 2 road trips.

The Sharks next win (and only win in Dec) might not be until Dec 30th against Philadelphia.

If this were to happen you are looking at a 12 game skid, so 6 more chances to fade the Sharks.

My team is in a disarray, lots of trade rumors, lots of calls for our GM Doug Wilson to be fired. We lost Logan Couture again which just cripples our scoring and depth.

Fade the Sharks for the rest of the month if you want to profit.

Goodluck and happy betting

This has to be the first time in NFL history a team not only won the game but also covered the spread while never actually leading in the game at any point. Even more so with the fact it was an extra play.

Can anyone confirm or recall another game?

NBA Betting / Clips 2H / View Post
Pounding the Clips 2H -3.5

$2200/$2000

Clips can't afford to have a sluggish second half, they need this game. Jazz hang around in the third and Clips pull away late for a 8-10 point win.

I love this spot

Anybody else feel like this is a perfect classic let down spot game for Carolina? Coming off a big home win against the Packers. Now traveling to play a 2-6 Titans team.

Don't sleep on Mariota and the home dog.

I'm digging the Titans +4.5 and ML

Anybody else feel the same way or am I crazy? Haha
