I hate this League now

13-10-1

Going to stick to my guns as this is the last of 3 ABC televised games for this League this season. If they put out a bad product in a woeful under then I deserve to lose my loot and the W should play games at the local flea markets. The 1st ABC opened the season with a dud in an under 145 Phx/Sea, then we bet the 2nd over LA/Minn and it did at 174 and that was w/ both teams coming into that game not scoring and avg'ing 70ppg.

If 1st half is under I will hammer 2nd half over. Interesting that most W games have "Will game go OT" prop at +1400 yet this one is +850 despite a 9pt line, hmmm?

over 154.5 11 bags
2nd half over 76 11 bags if 1st half is a sleeper

thanks kvs appreciate the compliment, best of luck this season

I'm in a kinda weird spot now as I'm doubting my reasoning for overs, worst thing for a gambler is to have doubt but I don't know if these gals can score, 8pt qtrs. is really embarrassing but it happens all the time

WNBA / ***WNBA Saturday / View Post
hang in there Oz, you'll be ok...I'm starting to think with the overseas play we just have a diluted league with women that for the most part simply cannot score and it's strange it's not b/c they are playing good defense at all it's just the gals can't knock down a 8ft jump shot and constantly miss layups, this League is in trouble...I won't touch another over unless it's extreme circumstances like a nationally televised game 

funny part when I was making a killing I just took unders and laughed as I watched 5min go by and 6pts being scored, it was money in the bank, only thing that scared me was when the game was tied like 63-63 with 2min left as they literally could go scoreless and into OT at 63s or 65s hahaa

back to unders

They need to make the hoop like a garbage can and the 3pt line start at the free throw line these girls are so bad haha

thank Oz, the W can look brutal at times with this lack of offense holy cow that 2nd qtr in Indy was horrific, maybe OT to save us 

yes that is TT over Kamais, good luck

Here's an interesting situation: Tiffany Bird recently got promoted to Crew Chief this season, she worked the Sea/Wash game last night and now is on a b2b in the Atl/Dall game. It's unusual to have a ref work a b2b but I went back 3 seasons to find these situations and in every single b2b the 2nd game went over this total. Also when 2 bottom feeders get together, the total goes over this low #. So I've got to take the chance that these 2 lame brane offenses cobble together enough baskets to get this thing over w/ Bird on the b2b2, otherwise they both should be culled from the herd.

over 145.5 Atl/Dall

1-2-1 yesterday to bring season total to 11-8-1, not great but not awful

Love the Sky today, they look like they have so much fun when they play and are gelling. These 2 teams have a pretty good history of competitive high scoring games and while Chi is looking for 1st rd win, Indy leaks pts at home. Should be a fun game.

Sky +3.5
ML +150
TT over 80

Now, onto tonight: 2 critical pieces I'm looking at: start of All Star balloting starts today and the NBA is now over. Going back you'll find that the day after the NBA championship was won there is a corresponding surge in W scoring, coincidence I don't think so. Therefore, I'm leaning overs and opened the boo to see 3 totals in the 150s which is nice and opened the referee assignments to see the who's who of long time over refs in each game which brought a smile to my face (Bird, Flores, Gulbeyan, Forsberg, Mauer). Friday nights in the W are good over spots as well. Interesting to note that if 1st half is a dud 2nd half usually blows up (see game last night). Good luck!

over 158 Sea/Wash
over 152.5 Minn/Conn
over 159.5 LA/Phx
over 165 NY/LV

Great to see Toronto win the Championship, new blood is always good. Now we get to focus on the W which I think is the best forum in here, no bickering or trolls, just good peeps having fun making money.

I think this is a pivotal season for the W. They need to expand their fanbase, increase attention and increase viewership, they've said so in the press and it's their goal. They've started to try to accomplish this by the most tv games ever, they've moved a team to Las Vegas and brought in a new League President, all effort to expand market share in really a League that not many sports fans care about.

Their biggest hurdles are a majority of sports fans really don't have the W on their radar nor care, most see it as an inferior product to the NBA. Second big challenge is lack of talent, it's evident every week when you see the girls go 6minutes with 2pts scored, the lack of scoring is hurting their image. This is a quantity that can be somewhat "fixed" just like when the NBA instituted new rules to increase pace, touch fouling to reward offensive players, etc...

I'm kinda quirky in that I look at angles no other bettors think of, sometimes it leads to riches sometimes not. The ones I'm following this season is the need to increase fanbase and the only way you do that is by increasing scoring. This is tough b/c I'm an under guy so I have to pick my spots. I lost 2 bets by a bucket each on the Dallas game last night b/c the girls could not score to save their life 1st half, that will happen but is frustrating to watch bad basketball and missed layups.

WNBA / Wings TT over 74.5 / View Post
3rd mtg btw these 2 teams including preseason, I think despite Dall being injured Agler will have something cooked up to get Wings going at home, Guftason may help off the bench and Indy does not play very good defense especially on the road

also over 151

10-4

on Warriors -4 and alt -8 +210

Been fortunate with hitting the unders but I think G6 is an absolute blowout. Last game at Oracle in Oakland as they move across the Bay next season. I think once Ws get rolling downhill Nurse will sit his starters and wait for G7. That timeout when Leonard was on fir and the bldg. was rocking was terrible, killed all momentum. Cousins can't play worse but I don't think they'll need him as should be the Splash Bros show Thursday, and I have Raps series futures which I'm now nervous about, hope they aren't cursed.
117-93 Ws
-4 now and alt as high as I can get when it comes out, probably -10 +160

I'd keep an eye on the televised ESPN/ESPN2/ABC games as the League is "showcasing" and if you get a good ref crew the over is in play...in 13 ESPN2 (the biggest network last year as no ABC games) avg score was over 170ppg....otherwise I love unders

good luck itp!

This is a good a good road friendly ref crew in Flores and Mauer to get Phx going. I don't see anyone on Indy slowing down Griner and if she doesn't mope around the court like a jilted lover she should have a big game. Indy has been fortunate with the cake home sched against bottom feeders, I think Phx rolls here.
