    This year I think I'm gonna sit out the Western Conference finals and root for the Warriors purely as a fan.

    I hear ya... I'm not a big fan of betting my favorite teams. They win, but don't cover or they cover, but don't win and I feel all f-ed-up. Especially now that they're playing my son's favorite team The Rockets... I just wanna concentrate on some serious smack talk.

    Normal = 1 unit
    Large=2.5 - 3 units

    Fortunately I haven't made a "stupid drunk" bet(10-15x) yet but I worry about that in vegas.

    No scoffin' in this household, my man.

    I'll throw a few bills down every Summer trip on the shorties.

    This is the only one I took a pic of quite a few years ago, but the Lynx always roll when I put down the bills.

    Good luck on your impending trip.

    I saw this yesterday. If you bet Warriors to win Western Conference at Golden Nugget, you're already a winner. Since they can't payout for any Rockets wins, Warriors get paid. Same thing happens if Rockets are in the Finals.

    Well gang I've done well with the basketball bets here at the Cromwell past few days...hit warriors game 1 money line and hit Celtics full.game and 2h +2 last night so I'm feeling quite full of myself(usually a fatal error:confused:). Last night here so I'm letting it all ride on GS money line tonight (+105). This a pure fade Hardin play cos if he shows up im probably toast however how many huge playoff games has Hardin shown up?? NOT TO MANY!

    GS +105
    1500 to win 1575

    Since you decide to place a money line wager you think GS will win straight up. Wondering if you consider also placing a bet on GS to hedge? My book has GS at +1.5, 105/100. Wish you the best.

    With the line being +1.5 there's almost no value in hedging it considering the money line bet

    GS had zero interest in this game.

    I really thought LeBron would have one of those "epic" games last night... he looked tired. I REALLY need my Warriors to bounce back tonight in a BIG way down in Houston.

    On Tuesday, I bought Celts tickets to Game 7. Loved that they won last night. Now I am OK with whatever happens Friday. Celts win, they are in the finals. Celts lose, I get to go to game 7 and hopefully see them win!

    If we have a Houston-Boston finals, I may stop watching the NBA.
