Keep firing Em.  I like betting NBA but don't do it well most of the time.  I'll take your plays when you are willing to share them.

Plenty of other games to make it back, tonight alone. Don’t get discouraged, in Em we trust.

no real research into this one, but going with 

Nets-Warriors ov 245

 

that is a bit of points, but seems like it should hit :shrug:

That is a ton of points to overcome. I worry with Durant coming back the Nets will be a little disorganized. I went with Curry o 5.5 assists -115. 

I also like N. Noel over 5.5 points +100 for some reason. He isn't much of a scorer, but he is starting tonight.

Now might not be a terrible time to start betting on some Jazz +600 to win the Western Conference. I mean, they're probably going to be there if they continue playing like this. As of right now they are the #1 seed and they are known to have a great home court advantage.

Stellar defensive team. They just have to get to the Western Finals and you have a +600 hedge against them. Make it a free roll or play it straight. Your choice.

Well got Noel and missed Curry by .5–darn it. 

Need to get my Daytona bets going here.

Wreckhouse Jr is always in the mix on the Super Speedways, but you know how it is going to end.

I had a free $20 bet, so I threw it on Truex Jr for a top 10--seemed like a safe bet.

I basically bet a bunch of $2 to win bets on some long shots like Bell and Cindric. You got to have a few lottery tickets today--especially with the chance of a rain-shortened race.

I don’t think I’ve watched 3 laps of nascar in the last 3 years

Used my free bet on Harvick top 3

I used my "Sprinkle $2 bets to win on long shots" theory and one of the five bets I laid down was on McDowell at +6600.

It was a nice little surprise when i logged onto MGM this morning as I was :banned:when i put those five bets down and forgot I backed him,. 

I like Wash M/L in the NBA tonight.

Mondays are tough. They're not going to score the 230-240 points you're used to seeing them score on the weekend.

Plus several teams on b2b and you never know when a primadonna starter will only go 18 minutes

Just took Heat -3 vs Clippers...Kawhi, George, Beverly all out

My Heaters are in a funk right now....2.5 games out of 4th and tanking for Beal or some ####.  It's frustrating.

Every time I see a new crazy price I like to think that ol Hoot kept his retirement and investments in Bitcoin all the way and he's now currently on the mend on some tropical island getting pampered by some scantily clad nurses while sipping on rum thumbing through the almanac with SizzleSaw.  I haven't kept up with the thread to know whether or not this is the case but this thought makes me happy.

Anyway it's 82 degrees here today and I feel guilty, kinda.

No Kyrie, no Durant tonight.

Joe Harris excelled when Kyrie was out earlier this season.  Over 14.5 points.

Harden over 48.5 PRA.  Ridiculous number, but if they are going to stay in the game he'll have to stuff the boxscore.

I like the Harris call. I worry about Harden because of the possible blowout possibility and BK just saying screw it and taking the loss.

I laid a little on Ayton tonight for a double/double as well.

Also was on Tulsa under, but not as confident.

I unloaded 300 of them back in 2017 @ 19,600...

 

I'm doing just fine these days!

Besides the part where I got hit by a car at 60 mph last summer and broke half bones in my body.  Minor setback!

 

But yeah, it was -13 for the last week up here in Wisconsin, so I'm not all the way there!

Someone just dropped 10k on the wizards to win the finals on Tuesday at 500-1.  

 

Could just be GameStop money, hard to identify smart money these days...

Same here.  But I got smoked all weekend down at the casino in Des Moines.  Donked away a couple k on ufc and basketball.

 

Then on the way out I happened to lay $30 on McDowell at 66-1 on the way out along with preece at 100-1 and Reddick at 40-1.

 

Longest Nascar odds I ever hit....now I just have to go back to Des Moines to get my cash.

Idaho one of the worst offensive teams in the country, and Portland St is pretty bad in their own right.  PSU missing top scorer as well.  Under 139.

Doubling Down.  Idaho under 74.5 2H +105.

You guys still betting on Madden? I'm about to fire up the PS2 I'll throw some lines out! I'll do it! I will! I'll do it, I'm crazy!

No, but if the only sport we had live was horse racing, I'd go back to Madden.
