Mavs -1.5 vs Rockets. Mavs transition defense even with Dwight Powell was straight trash. Even with Eric Gordon out, I think the Rockets can run them out of the building. Don't feel great about but I need something to bet on and f*ck the Mavs

Will probably bet the Celtics to win for entertainment although the smart bet is surely the Bucks -4.5

So two bad bets. Anyone else?

Me too. I want to see how no home court, no traveling, the lay-off, etc. effects teams.
Kinda interesting - these are the same courts they have played many. AAU NCs on. Majority of these guys have played big games on these same courts without much of a crowd back in HS. Just saying these courts have a lot of sentimental value to a lot of players out there. Pretty cool

Hahaha I’m totally with you on that. Mavs pick is looking strong after three, too bad you didn’t take the over. **** almost covered after 3 quarters lol insane
Lol my man - I typed that wrong. I bet on the Rockets and watched the Mavericks drop all 84 points in the first half. I want to believe in this Houston team but their D is god awful. And if they can’t stop anyone they can’t get in transition. A damn shame

Nah man. I bet everything (golf is the best sport to bet imo) & I just cannot watch it. Playoffs maybe but regular season NBA is a crappy product.
True. I never bet NBA reg season ball and only bet NBA playoffs if I'm in Vegas. I've never done well with reg season NBA. It's just relieving to have it back so I'm down for a little action. And fwiw it feels a little like playoff ball with the bottom dwellers out and every game meaning so much.

Nothing better than watching the final round of a golf major at a sportsbook in Vegas.

Going to put a little on Chelsea to win the FA Cup. Only because I want to cheer for Captain America aka Christian Pulisic. Smart bet is Arsenal. They need this win (and the money) to make up for the horrendous season they had. Chelsea seems focused on next season when they add Ziyech and Timo Werner to club. And Kante is doubtful.

So another bad bet for ya

Also thinking about the Heat v Nugget under at 214.
