Roberto Luongo is an absolute disgrace...

I said this in another thread, but it really needs to be reiterated...

What a fucking pussy Luongo is. If you are him, you have to DEMAND to get the start. Show some balls for once, instead of pussing out in a big spot like usual...

I think Schneider is just as good, if not better. But WOW this is simply pathetic on Luongo's part. And please don't tell me he has a "back injury."

Please.

Why do the Rangers always screw me???

No I didn't bet on the Devils tonight but I have a pretty decent wager on them to win the Atlantic Division and obviously every point is key. With the way the standings are right now, the Rangers would need an ABSOLUTE MIRACLE to make the playoffs, so I really didn't feel bad rooting against them. If they had a realistic chance, I would surely root for them over my bet but they don't.

Watching this team over the years is frustrating to say the least. They NEVER EVER play with heart, ESPECIALLY when they are down at the end of the game, and ESPECIALLY vs the Devils.

Fast forward to tonight. I am rooting against them for once, and what happens? Drury ties it with 15 seconds left and they win in a shootout. This shit NEVER HAPPENS when I want them to win (every night besides tonight)

Go figure the one game this team decides to show some heart, is when I want them to lose.

The books HAD to of been killed today on these olympic bets...

Looking through the forum, it was tough to find a SINGLE person on Norway or Latvia. 99% was on Canada and Russia (and that is not exaggerating) I was on Russia so I followed along.

Tomorrow it seems like the same will hold true for everyone being on Finland and Sweeden. Every single person I have seen so far betting these games are on those two teams. (and deservedly so)

The question is, will the books adjust?

Biggest ML of the year and it's the Kings???

Don't get me wrong, the Kings have been playing some GREAT hockey, but I'm surprised to see -315 which is the highest I believe I've seen all season.

With that being said, the line probably has more to do with the books being tired of giving away free money betting against the Oilers on the road then anything else. The -220/230 have been replaced with 300's and up from here on out.

Looking for advice on Devils Atlantic Division future bet...

That game today REALLY sucked. How do you blow a 2-0 lead with 30 secs left in the 2nd period without even forcing OT? Amazing.

Anyways, I have 7.5 units on the Devils at even money to win the Atlantic. When I bet it, they were 10 pts or so up on the Pens. I calculate standings in terms of games over .500, NOT on pts at the time. (since games in hand can play a big role) Anyways, now they are only 5 up in terms of games over .500.

I can get Pens +200 to win the division, should I hedge a lil bit on this? 7.5 units is a big bet for me on this future bet as I usually bet .5 to 1.5 units per game.

Leaning towards putting 2.5 units to win 5 units on the Pens. What would you guys do?

QUESTION for everyone on the Vikings bandwagon...

No doubt they played an AWESOME game vs Dallas in every aspect. But with that being said, are we now going to look at that game and completely dismiss their recent road struggles? They have been great at home ALL YEAR, but let's look at their last 3 road games....

December 28 @ Chicago LOST 36-30
-A game they were lucky to be in. They were dominated pretty much all game and forced OT with a late comeback.

December 20 @ Carolina LOST 26-7
-Not much to say about this game. Played awful against a bad Carolina team.

December 6 @ Arizona LOST 30-17
-See above games

I understand Minnesota can cause matchup problems for the Saints IF they play their A-game, but based on their road struggles that is a BIG if. I am not saying the Vikes have no chance to win the game. They ABSOLUTELY can win, but I am very curious though for all the guys on the Vikes...

What makes you think they will all of a sudden light it up on the road vs the completely healthy Saints?

Carolina +110 Vs the Rangers monday night? Really?

Can someone explain to me how Carolina is a home dog in this game? They are healthy for the first time all year and look to be turning the corner. They were -140 at home to the Panthers, and you could argue that the Panthers are a better team then my Rangers AT THIS POINT in the year. So with that being said, how can Carolina be +110 in this game?

As much as it kills me to say, might have to bet against my team here...

Saints are a GREAT team but they are not invincible. (+520....)

Lets look CLOSELY at the Saints last 5 games....

@ Miami
-Awesome come from behind victory but they were badly outplayed in the first half. The Dolphins proved that if you pressure Brees, he WILL make mistakes

Vs NYG
-Clearly they destroyed the Giants in every aspect of the game. BUT the Giants do not seem to be what we thought they were...

Vs NYJ
-You could argue they actually got outplayed in this game. If not for the Sanchez bonehead mistakes, this would of been a very, very close game.

@ Buff
-Was a 3 pt game going into the 4th and Buffalo collapsed leading to an easy Saints win.


The bottom line is this....

Yes the Saints are a very, very good team but they can be beaten. How often do you see a +500 team that actually has a chance to win? If the Falcons can force a couple turnovers, they very well can be in this game at the end.

May take a shot on the ML....

The Orlando Magic will be worse off with Vince Carter.

This trade most likely means they will not be able to resign Turkoglu. Meaning....

Additions - Carter

Losses - Turkoglu, Alston, Lee

Yes VC is a good scorer, no doubt about it. But I have my doubts whether he makes a team better at this stage of his career. I'm a Nets fan and obviously the Nets had no hope to win, but I truly believe the Magic lose more with the players they lose then what they gain with V.C. They will still be a very good team, but not as good as people think. I CAN'T WAIT for the nba season win totals to come out. The Magic over/under will be ridiculously high and I will be pounding the under. The perception of V.C. coming to the Magic is that it will make them a better team, and I can't disagree more.

Raise your hand if you think the Wings only score 2 goals in this game....

.....Didn't think so.


Look I am the first person to say that there are NO easy bets out there and HATE HATE HATE it when people use the "L" word, so I don't want to come off as over-confident in my play. There is a reason it is called gambling as any bet can lose.

With that being said, the Wings are 12-2 so far in the playoffs to the over, if you set their team total at 2.5. (8-2-4 if you set it at 3) Yes I know Huet played well coming into the game in relief, but let's see if he can keep it up for a full game. Even when the Wings were down 3-0 last game, I still knew it was possible for them to reach 3 goals. Within a 4 minute stretch, the bet went from a huge long shot to a win. That is what I love about this team. They have the fire power to strike at any moment and you can never count them out.

Playing the Wings team totals have been very very very good to me in the playoffs, and I see no reason to stop now. Like I have said every time I have made this play, there is a better chance they finish with 3 goals instead of 2.

Wings TT Over 2.5 (-140)
