    Bucks -11 tonight vs Boston

    Boston on a back to back, last game before heading home vs a bad Suns team Saturday night, and the Bucks are coasting but have a national tv audience tonight. They win going away in the 4th.

    Damn beat me to it. I was thinking, the same radio ad. “I called this number and listened to a pre recorded message and didn’t leave any personal information.”

    OP all kidding aside I hope the Bucks hold up.

    They were winning going away- but in the second. The W was never in doubt, but the Celts, who are pretty decent, wore them down.

    Tough collapse.

    @LVRaiders I liked the bet too. Banged up, inconsistent and on a back-to-back.
    Just FYI, look at OKC moving forward, they're #1 this year against the spread, by a whopping 6.5%. #1 OKLAHOMA CITY 65.00% - Assuming Steven Adams doesn't go to Atlanta.

    In my sports gambling life, I have only made one wager that I truly thought was a lock (and I bet it accordingly). Basketball is just so hard because of end of the game scenarios and scoring. I recall one year while I was in vegas during MM, I saw an over/under line on Memphis and Golden State. This is back when Jaeger was the Grizz coach and both teams were defensively horrible and trying to play fast. Can't recall the line, but I bet the over thinking it was easy money. After three quarters, both teams were hovering right around a hundred points and I only needed seventeen combined points in the fourth quarter to hit the over. They scored 14 combined. :cry:You just never know

    They only scored 14 combined in the whole 4th quarter?! Wow, that is a really tough break!
    I generally like to bet the NBA playoffs when betting, If the stars are healthy, they will play, no resting, no tanking, and by the end of the season you have that much more data to rely on. By the end of an 82 game season, you generally know "who is who" thus why you see so much chalk in the first round. Betting a meaningless Wizards vs Bulls game half way through the regular season, sometimes feels like a coin flip.

    The 73-9 Warriors made me a lot of money although I personally did not like them. In the regular season, they were as close to a lock as you could find. I rode them all the way to June that year, and I shifted to bet the Cavs Money Line Game 5 of the Finals (when Kyrie went off) and bet Cavs Money Line Game 7 (the best Game 7 ever perhaps) and made a very nice profit off Cleveland. Neither felt like a lock.

    Yeah, my story was betting on the Baron Davis/Jason Richardson Warriors of yore! But yeah, the 2016 Warriors were a fun team to bet. I was in vegas for game three of the finals and made a killing betting the Warriors and a bunch of Klay Thompson props

    Wizards gave up 152 to the Hawks, with no overtime. Point being, I like your take!
