    Took these along with the Manchester City, UAB 1H, and GT bets mentioned earlier. 6-0 so far and Crabbe has 9 pts through one quarter.

    I did end up taking the Kings but I figured they would be wearing those pimp light blue uniforms. They came out in black, fucked.

    Nice pick fading the Wahoos. Being a contrarian will usually pay off in the long run betting across all sports. If 70% of the public is backing Team A and the lines moves two points in the other direction, I am betting Team B every single time. The key is to not let it get to your head when you miss a few of them.

    Holy fuck...that one goes in the bad beats thread. Sorry boys.

    ————
    Glad I didn’t take the t wolves but also mad I didn’t take the trailblazers second half, so that’s a wash.

    8-0 day on posted plays, I’ll try not to fuck it up tomorrow.

    I want to take Pistons ML -140 @ magic so badly but it is such a trap. Feels like if I don't buy the ticket then they will cruise, but if I do Fournier will drop 35

    EDIT: Fuck it, I am in for 1U. Last night all the big public plays were losers (Cleveland, Miami, Brooklyn), maybe ol Joe Public is due for a win.

    I don't foresee any make-or-break line movement between now and 5pm so I am going to see where the money is coming in on these and hope that we're on the minority side.

    Tonights plays:

    Detroit ML -140
    Dallas -1
    GSW -12
    Toronto -2 -150
    GSW/ATL Under 226

    Several very square plays, which goes against my betting morals, but as I mentioned earlier I feel like public players are due to cash a few tickets tonight after getting their asses whipped yesterday evening. I would not recommend tailing tonight, I don't love the card but couldn't avoid betting volume after an undefeated Thursday.

    Good luck boys. Clear eyes, full heart, etc.

    Pistons blow a 7 point lead down the stretch and have scored a whopping 0 points through 4 minutes of OT. Tough beat but shouldn’t have bet into a trap.

    Jesus Christ warriors just dicked around and blew the cover too. Tough night

    Edit: they dicked around enough to let the hawks back in to the game, fouling ensues, and the under is fucked too.

    Edit 2: the under held up but fucked tonight.

    Raptors currently collapsing

    What a lame night. 2-3 finish but should have been 4-1.

    Per espn, the Pistons has an 89.6% win probability with FOUR FUCKING MINUTES TO GO up 7.

    Dallas (-1) had a 91% win probability up 11 with 10 minutes to go.

    Warriors were up 14 with 4 to go but I’m not even going to butch about that.

    Another positive day Sunday. Had Boston and Portland last night but didn’t post.

    Tobias I think we are supposed to be backing Charlotte tonight. The public is hammering Philly and Embiid likely won’t play. Kemba and Dwight should both feast.

    Charlotte +3 (-125)
    Toronto -12 (-120)
    OKC +5 (-125) (TwoPoor i can’t fucking help myself)

    EDIT: Doesn’t look like Embiid is even on the injury report. FUCK IT

    Don’t care how tired Portland is or how bad GSW has been at home as a double-digit favorite, it’s really tough to pass on the Blazers and Dubs, at home, with the public backing sub-.500 teams on the other side. Rare that GSW is the minority play, and says a lot about public perception right now. I’ll take both and see what happens.

    Guys, I have a problem...I can’t stop losing money on the Thunder. Is there like an OKC-specific gambling help line that I can call?

    1-2 on posted picks, hit live over 211 and 220 (luckily) to break even going into the night session. I lean LAC but am staying away from the TNT game

    Profitable night, also hit on Tatum over 20.5 total points+rebounds and Celtics first to 20.

    Just hedged Suns +12 with Celtics -8.5 live, would love to hit the middle but would gladly walk away 5-1.

    The Suns have been so good to me this year.

    I want to bet the Spurs but think I will stay away, you just never know what you're getting when the Wizards take the court.

    As a fan I am bias. If you put history into the mix, I would never take the Raptors in the playoffs. But this year just seems different. If they come out and beat them again at home this will show everyone this isn't the same old Raptors. I just cant trust them yet.

    Completely. It's changed over the past 3 years. It's be a rocky adjustment. Overs were very plentiful when I'd make a play. That's all I played for a while (find a specific spot you like and are good at and stick with etc), but vegas adjusted and I'm playing unders now.
