Another day another team that is done

Yesterday it was the Wizards, today it's the Raptors, stick a fork in them they are done. Really? You lost to the minor league Knicks!

Knicks @ Pistons game fixed

Pistons up 51-33 in the 2nd quarter, come back and they are in a struggle, now down by 1 in the 4th quarter. First Grizzlies/Kings on Wednesday now this game.

It's official wizards are done

Stick a fork in them, even losing to the 76ers, really?!

I knew it was going to happen

Timberwolves win by 2, they had spreads of -1.5, -2 and -2.5, guess which one I got? Yeah the only one that loses

Oregon @ UCLA

UCLA is a totally different team at home, though the same could be said about a lot of teams. They beat Utah by 10 at home after losing by 32 on the road and have plenty of other samples of losing big on the road and winning a home by double digits. Any reason not to take UCLA -6.5?

Gifts or traps

Oklahoma State only -2.5 @ TCU
Texas A&M only -2 to Florida at home
What am I missing, TCU and Florida have both been awful, TCU in conference play and Florida all season. What is the catch?

Michigan can't score

Haven't scored since over 3 minutes were left in regulation now more than 2 minutes into OT.
Looks like the rare backdoor favorite cover is going to moose my Michigan +7.5 play

No one on Michigan Illinois game

I'm amazed that game is being treated as non existent given it looked like a lot of people would play it just cause it's on TV, not the reason to make a play but I'm surprised no on is talking about it.
Spread Illinois -7.5 total 123.5

Of all the times the spread goes down

why is Florida still -6? Their best player is out, they've been mediocre at best and Ole Miss isn't some brutal opponent. I took Ole Miss +6 a while ago and expected to see the spread drop, instead it's still at 6. I never say this but gift?

Wrong team favored Bulls -2 at Pelicans

Pelicans are playing well having won 7 of their last 9, are 6-1 against the East at home and Davis is playing, Bulls have lost 10 of 15 and their defense has been atrocious and they are laying points?!
Pelicans +2 no doubt

Why is Oklahoma only laying 3 to a terrible TCU team?

I thought Oklahoma -4.5 was a slam dunk, I never expected it to go down. Is someone out? Oklahoma won at OK State and demolishedd Texas on the road. Is TCU really going to be tougher than Texas and OK State, I find that hard to believe!

Two major collpses Clippers and Mavs

I didn't take the Clippers game but I still can't believe what I saw, up by 9 with little time left I leave for a minute a next thing I know they lost. As for the Mavs I took them -10 at home against the horrid Timberwolves, they lead by 20 at one point in the 2nd quarter (45-25) but were only up by 7 at halftime and now their lead is down to 4.

Heat blew it too

Up by 21 ATS and are going to lose, talk about a night of evil results!

Posted Friday, January 30, 2015 09:13 PM

Rockets have 7 points since halftime

Wrong team favored, stupid line movement

Timberwolves favored by 4.5, on the road! I thought Philly +2 was a steal last night and the spread would become pickem or 76ers as the favorite, instead I lost out on 2.5 points (which would suck if Philly loses by 3 or 4, even 2 wouldn't count as a win ATS for me). Unless the home team is missing someone real significant then why is the road team favored in a game between teams are on a simular level? I have no idea why a team as horrible as the Timberwolves would even be laying 1 point on the road let alone almost 5. Philly has looked better than Minnesota lately (though not by much) and won at Minn for their first game of the year. This game is a rematch of Philly's first win after an 0-17 start that prevented them from tying the record. While this doesn't always work out if the home team in a game won on the road earlier in the season against a team of the same level and isn't missing anyone, then why on earth aren't they the favorite? Barring a surprise absence this should be a "wrong team favored" game!

Is LeBron playing tonight?

Pretty much determines the play, Cavs +4 if he does, Suns -4 if he is still out.

Cavs blown out by Pistons

Really? A trash team like that beats you by 23 in YOUR HOUSE to boot!

Line movements that make no sense

Chargers who are in a win and their in lose and their out go from +1 to +3 against a team missing their quarterback, why?

Giants meanwhile are on a 3 game winning streak and the Eagles a 3 game losing streak, even losing to the lowly Redskins and the line has moved from Giants -3 to pick or even Eagles -1 in some places, why?

NBA Gods strike

Timberwolves Magically score 22 points in the last 5 minutes leading to a backdoor cover and possibly a cover even to people who teased the spread possibly as low as -13.5, leading by 27 (94-67) in the 4th quarter with under 8 minutes to go with the Timberwolves yet to score in that quarter and magically being outscored 30-16, 22-10 in the final 5 minutes to a team that rarely if ever plays well appears to say only 1 thing, NBA gods punishing people laying 17-19.5 points?! For those that may also follow NFL, this reminds me of the season the Colts were putrid and the Patriots were 20 or 20.5 point favorites at home, lead by 28 after 3 and won by a mere single TD, being outscored 21-0 in the 4th quarter by an eventual 2-14 team. That screamed NFL gods punishing people laying 20+ despite that it looked reealistically possible both going into the game and in the 2nd half only to lose and not even be close to the spread.

Biggest spread in NBA history?

Warriors are laying 19 against the Timberwolves
Take Minn with all those points or go for it with GS?!

Not paying attention and probably paid for it

Patriots opened at -10.5 over the Bills having already clinched home-field advantage. I recon this line came out before the Broncos/Bengals game. Bengals win clinched homefield for the Pats hence nothing to play for meaning I doubt Tom Brady plays. Line has now plummeted down to -5 which passes a key margin (7) and 2 other significant margins (6 and 10). I did not take Buffalo is because I was thinking about how they were eliminated against the Raiders and did not think about the game becoming all meaningless. Could this be a good thing in disguise (NE still finds a way to win by 11+ afterall), a lost cause (NE wins by 6-10), a semi-lost cause which is very unlikely (NE wins by 5) or No harm no foul (NE wins by 1-4 or Buffalo wins)?

Never seen anything like this in my life

and probably will never see it again.
Joe Flacco 3 for 18 27 yards 0 TDs 2 INTs
Ravens have 31 total yards
and biggest of all a ZERO point ZERO rating (apparently I just learned that negatives are impossible since Flacco continues to throw incompletes and it stays a 0.0)

Princeton @ Syracuse

Syracuse is -14.5 at the Dome and Princeton is only 1-2 with a 4 point win at Buffalo who is 1-5 so it seems like -14.5 is a steal but I remember Syracuse being in a similar situation at home against Marshall and that ended up being a 6 point margin. Trap? Or 30+ slam dunk win?

Posted Wednesday, March 28, 2012 03:08 PM

Why are the Pistons laying points?

The Cavs have won both games so far and I haven't heard that anyone major is out.
I'm not falling for this Vegas lure. Cavs +1.5

High Total for NBA All Star Game


Last years game had 291 points (which would have even been over this amount), 2010 had 280 (Over the 262.5 Total for that season but Under if this years Total were used), and in 2009 the game went just Over the 263 Total with 265 points and a dunk at the end gave over the win. But if this years Total were used that game would be way Under.

I know there is no defense but that is a 15.5 point increase on last years total of 268. In a season that started late (due to lockout) has had a shortage of games in which 100+ are scored by either team in that game (granted those aren't absolute defenseless like an All Star game) why such a big increase? Does Vegas want Under to win because Under hasn't won in a while (the entire time I've been on covers) or is this years All Star game going to be the highest scoring one yet?
