I for one am sick to death of the battle that I saw today. I'm not talking about the basketball game, but the disgraceful way that so many gamblers carried themselves today. Everyone seemed to be throwing around the "sharp" play of the day, but in my opinion there was no sharp play.
Everyone insisted on talking about the motivation factor, and who had more motivation. The honest truth is that everyone was equally motivated for that game. Lebron had to come up huge in what was perhaps his biggest and most emotional game of his career. The Heat had to come up big to support their number one asset, and the Cavs had to come up big to show him that they aren't a bunch of hapless losers as he made them feel.
At the end of the day, my thought was that motivation worked both ways, and therefore it was just a better team playing a lesser team, and that's why I backed the Heat.
I don't think in any way it was the sharp play, it just made snese to me. But I am tired of the constant battles taking place and trashtalking based on which side of the coin you were on. I love this site cuz its a great place to share your thoughts on the gambling world, and trying to screw the books together. I just feel that today was a sad day were alot of people lost track of what this is all about; KILLING THE BOOKS TOGETHER!!!!!!!! Good luck to all and I would appreciate your feedback
Hey everyone. I've been on a nice little run the last couple weeks, so I thought it might be a good time to start posting them so we can kill the books together :)
Before I start, I am just gonna point out 2 things. First, I don't do writeups. There are so many aspects to capping a game properly that I don't feel it is necessary to write every detail that lead to a specific pick. Secondly, unlike most people I tend to pick alot of games everyday. I used to limit myself to just 3 or 4 picks, but too often I'd go 1-2 or 2-2, and my 3 or 4 other leans would all hit. So now I pick whatever looks like a strong play.
So here we go:
MIN -105 1.05u to win 1u
STL -156 1.56u to win 1u
WAS +105 1u to win 1.05u
SD +110 1u to win 1.1u
MIN/TB UNDER 8.5 1.1u to win 1u
KC/OAK OVER 7.5 1.1u to win 1u
SD/LAD UNDER 7 1.1u to win 1u
Good luck to all!
I've been on a nice little run as of late, so I figured I'll post my picks here tonite and hopefully I can help somebody make some cash.
I've got a good feeling that 3 of the games tonite will be going to the dogs, so here we go:
I know that -105 isnt much of a dog, but Toronto is still the dog in this one. Anytime you have a dog against Atlanta, especially one that is coming off a spanking of pittsburg, looks good in my books. The over 6 looks pretty good too, as neither team seems to understand the concept of defense.
Prediction: Tor 5 - Atl 3
Pittsburgh has been playing solid lately and is looking to gain their manhood back after that abomination suffered against T.O. Look for a fast paced game with lots of scoring, as the matchup against Buffalo tends to bring that. Over 6 looks like a good bet.
Prediction: Pit 4 - Buf 3 OT (going on a limb with the OT)
My most confident dog of the night (no pun intended). The coyotes are showing glimpses of a solid young team with great leadership from the great one. Edmoton has been playing very uninspired hockey as of late, but has been very solid on the backend. Expect a very tight checking game with few goals. Take the under 5.5
Prediction: Phx 3 - Edm 2
Now this is coming on a purely unbiased perspective, as I am a Canuck fan first, but I like money better. The Canucks played a solid 60 minutes against the hawks, but just couldn't get the job done. They have allowed the fewest goals against of any team at home, and I expect that to continue tonite. Neither allows too many goals and these matches tend to be defensive duos. Take the Canucks and the under is looking pretty solid as it does in almost all Canuck games.
Prediction: Van 3 - Ana 1
There you have it. Those are my predictions of the day. If they do well, which I feel they will, I may continue to post these threads. Good luck to all.
