    NBA 79-64 +18.95

    Nuggets let me down wednesday, but methinks I got a winner here.....


    5 units

    Celtics-2 1stq

    Warriors-.5 1stq

    Nuggets-3.5 1stq

    2 units each

    4.5 pt teaser


    1.5 to win 1.5 units

    Rockets- to me it's simple... the Heat are getting respect on the line for a couple reasons. First, they are off a blown lead loss to the Hawks, & with Wade back they're bound to win (according to perception) eventually. They haven't won at home this season, they're due. Secondly, the Rockets have lost 5 straight games. The fact of the matter is I would have been playing this at-6, because the Rockets are that much better of a team. Let's recap the Rockets losses...

    Memphis- 2nd loss of the season, & it came 8 games in. Memphis shot well & won. These things happen.

    Lakers- Houston loses McGrady 19 minutes in. Without Tracy, the Lakers are able to double Yao easier & he doesn't respond well. The Rockets shoot an abysmal 35% & lose by 3.

    @SA- No T-Mac, plus the Rockets get the privilege of facing the Spurs off a loss. Houston plays well, but in the end it's a 6 pt loss.

    Suns- No T-Mac once again, & this time they get to face the Suns off a b2b close game vs. the Spurs. Phx shoots 62% from the field, 53% 3pters. You don't beat anyone when they shoot that well, period. 10 pt loss.

    Mavs- The Rockets get T-Mac back, & lead the whole game. That is until Dallas outscores them 38-20 in the fourth.

    I'm not making excuses, but to me it looks like a string of bad situations paired with a key injury. In contrast, the Heat have looked horrible the whole season, & even with Wade back haven't looked good. IMO Wade was rushed back too soon, & is not 100%. In his last game vs. the Hawks, he was just 4-12 from the field. 6 of his 14 pts came from the ft line..... The Heat have 2 wins- they beat the Knicks & the Vince-less Nets. Bottom line they can't score. I have a hard time seeing them even scoring enough to have a chance at beating the Rockets. IMO something like a 98-84 final.

    Still looking into a couple totals/1stq plays, but I don't want to mess this play up with marginal ****, so it may be a smaller card. :thumbs:

    I'm playing the Rockets as well. I was surprised to see the small line... probably due to their losing streak... but Rockets are hungry for a win and they're more than capable against Miami. I also took Warriors... I read Haywood tweaked his ankle. Wanted to take Denver at home and fade the Clips after that last game but the lines are just too big. Also a smaller play on the nets.

        BOL Udogg! Neither team is great in their respective b2b H/A and A/H situations, but you gotta like the value with Houston.
        NFL YTD: 0-0-0 (0.00 Units)
        NCAAF YTD: 1-0-0 (+0.45 Units)

          GKL- I like the warriors as well, but opted for the 1stq there. I was thinking the Rockets would be -4, so I'll gladly take the shorter line.

          beholdah- I do like this one a bunch, Hopefully it pays out.

          cavorca-no doubt :thumbs:

          There's a good chance I won't be around until after the games start tomorrow, so I already posted the 1stq plays I'll be making. These are based on the lines right now, & shouldn't move 1stq wise. Juice may shift though...If for some reason the Nuggets 1stq moves to a 4.5 (highly unlikely, IMO), I will make it a no play. Warriors moves to-1, then I'll be on the moneyline. Boston is a play regardless, IMO they're up by 4+ at the end of the first... Ran out of time for writeups, sorry I didn't provide reasoning for the quarter plays. I have a full day ahead of me so I gotta get some shuteye. No totals for the day, keeping a light card & hoping for the Rockets to dominate :sm:

                Fine by me FF.:beerbang:

                Clippers+9.5 2ndh

                Minny/Nuggets o103 2ndh

                No/Utah o95 2ndh

                3 units each

                I'm on the Suns in a teaser, but I don't think it covers. IMO the Clips play is the strongest of the bunch....
