this is just another chapter.. 

warriors 31 point lead 

spurs 20 point lead last night 

expect the nba playoffs to continue to have these crazy runs

best bet is to play it by trends throughout the series like playing pacers ML for game 3

Took this team -150 to win series on a 10 unit bet...

Do they still have any chance?

I wouldn't think so but seeing that -7 for game 3,

1) that's crazy high for this situation 2) never doubt the book so that gave me some belief that they have a chance to come back in this series. 

Let's see if Westbrook can step up his play compared to Dame tho...

I have said this a thousand times and it still really gets to me

I can't stand to hear about the triple doubles and those records 

I don't care, watch the guy play and you'll see he is nothing special and very overrated 

Heck, if the triple doubles were so important, why can't his team ever be winning?

Top 5 Pg is stretching it at this point

none of them do that in the playoffs... no matter what game every time they hold the ball at the end, winning or losing

i dont know what just happened but something like that will not happen in SA...

Spurs in 6

a huge part of the playoffs in any sport is experience... Denver being the most unexperienced against a pop spurs team... oh boy

Had the +225 for series as well!! 

Spurs just match up so good and I could just feel denvers in experience coming into this one 

Heck, their coach malone after game 1 said himself the players were g league last year and was proud that they were at least in it ... what? your a 2 seed, you should be winning the first round lolol

great job by pop as well

an 8 point lead from the warriors is a bad sign in the 2nd, the best 3rd quarter team and will probably win this game by 15+ points

yeah this is what I was talking about and it looks great when the shots are hitting but when they aren't this team seems weak and easily beatable
  nnnnnnnnnnnnno!!!!! if he goes 3/4 for 3 pointers in the first he must be 6/8 by half or he is shaving points... i mean how could you explain it other way?

what are you talking about lol

TBH no, Portlands shot selection all game has been very questionable, its just they made them all in the first quarter and slowed down in the 2nd which made OKC come back

If portland wants to win this series, they cant have this happen...

Unless they are hitting threes, they seem very easy to keep close with and kawhi closing games should be the number 1 priority for him to focus on

Yes its the raptors and its some type of curse, but they have a winner now who will put them through deep in the playoffs 

Kawhi 

And dont be suprised if Gasol also pitches in big plays late in games

He just can't shoot, its simple as that and gets even worse when his teammates are having bad games cause there goes the playmaking out the door...

Butler stepped up today, but if someone can be consistent at putting the ball in the hoop, they can be great 

But the bigger issue, they don't play defense and they didn't look interested at all to make a late push, down 9 with 2 minutes to go and they aren't pushing it or pressing? whats up with that?

Looks like the Sixers still don't care about defense even in playoff mode  new_heavy_cry

eastern conference will be great to watch this year and I agree about the spurs/nuggets total, it seems like both teams will jump out with heavy three pointers from role players and scoring domination

GOLDEN STATE WARRIORS CHAMPIONS -200: So yes, this one shouldn't much explanation, but wait, the Warriors are -400 to win the western conference... to me, this doesn't make much sense, they are more favored to win the west? I really don't think so, if they lose, which they won't, expect it to come to a western conference team like Houston or OKC or Denver, etc, I really dought this Warriors team gets beat in the finals by any eastern conference team after eliminating all of the west. So, I guess taking the -400 is also reasonable, but after I saw that, the -200 to win it all struck me with lots of value for easily the best team in the NBA, especially in the playoffs. 

WESTERN CONFERENCE TEAM WILL WIN FINALS -250:  Also from the warriors one, if the warriors don't come out of the west for some reason, still expect that hot west team to win. I like this year's eastern conference, I just feel they aren't ready to defeat any high paced western conference team in a 7 game series. 

BUCKS TO NOT WIN THE EASTERN CONFERENCE -200: No matter how strong this bucks team has been, I really don't see it this year. Losing Brodgon and Mirotic to injury was key but that's not the main point. Same with the Nuggets, experience, whether Giannis is the MVP or not, I don't think he will be able to carry the team to the finals just yet. In a single game, this team can be amazing, but just like last year against the Celtics, this team in a series can become very predictable and it can be expected that any other team will be able to compete with them in eastern conference finals...

 

That is it, for now, more to come later in the playoffs... these plays all seem to have value in my opinion and all are solid picks to make some extra cash on the side!! reallyhappy BOL this coming playoffs with your bets!
