Chicago Bulls -1.5

SA down DeRozan and Aldridge, Bulls on a roll

Do you ever bet on tennis? I’ve had some success doing live bet ML parlays.

Been betting on the Bulls for a while now. Billy D has them playing well.

NBA is just the worst. 23 point lead in Q2, 18 at half

13 point lead going into the 4th.

Get outscored 39-19 in the 4th.

There was a 17-0 run at one point. Also a 10-0 run earlier in quarter. Beyond ugly basketball by the Bulls, so crazy with how good they looked to start so many sloppy turnovers down the stretch.

I will remind you NBA betters the reason I stopped betting them.

Giving 8 1/2 to somebody against the Big Green Machine, with a LARGE bet.

Celts are up by 7 as time expires, I*m losing.

Refs whistle a foul and put Larry on the line to shoot 2.
He and Dennis J are yukking it up as Larry puts up the first shot. LEFTY, swish.
I'm still alive.
Larry puts the second shot up righty, I'm feeling good. He closes his eyes, PRIOR to letting it loose. SWISH, I COVER.

LAST BET I EVER MADE WITH NBA'ers.

I am really curious what percentage of bracket pools I’m in have Illinois as champs.

I will report back tomorrow. Good news is not many Illinois grads in these pools if any.

Somehow some way I’m sitting positive today because I used serious restraint (by luck) on Illinois as the line moved terribly the wrong way and I got cold feet. A blessing I only went in very small, as I was going to drop the hammer off all hammers.

pounded Baylor, on to the next one!

I’m going to ride the UCLA horse into glory or a bloody death

Abilene simply doesn’t pass the analytics test and their terrible offense seems very unlikely to survive today. They are way, way down the list of teams left playing

The Buffalo Sabres have lost 16 consecutive games. 3rd string goalie who hasn’t won a game in 6 years and the other night the GM had to be the coach as the interim coach has Covid

the Buffalo Sabres play Boston today at noon

Do you take hockey teams to cover (in a situation like this), or just money line?

both

the Sabres have only covered the 1.5 in 12 of the 16 losses. Boston is good...but not like Tampa Bay good, so a 1 goal difference wouldn’t be shocking

you could do a Boston moneyline with any of your preferred winners of the day ...Nova, Arkansas, whoever...

That’s what I was thinking. I don’t watch much hockey, so not sure how often a 1.5 spread is covered. Appreciate the heads up on the Sabres’ situation.

Went to the new Barstool Sportsbook up at a casino in Black Hawk, CO for some games last weekend. Fun time and only an hour away. Of course the Illini game sucked, and there was only 1 server due to lower capacity. Should be nice once things open back up some more.

Unfortunately really poor value on the bet

-147 puck line/ -359 ML (yikes!)

vegas Has been adjusting with each loss but this is a steep price

Ya, when I saw the money line I figured I’d ask about the spread. Sounds like they absolutely should win though.

Not sure I would suggest these plays unless you are playing with a stack of winnings but I’m rolling with..

Boston/Nova/Arkansas/.....Loyola

and an interesting Boston -1.5/Oregon St +7

both cards have nice payouts. The Loyola game is very interesting. KenPom Darlings versus Oregon St ATS as a Dog Darlings (15-3 ATS as a dog in 2 months). I think Loyola is getting 1-2 points too many here on paper

Not bad. Gambling is excellent for relaxing and having some fun, but you will never enrich yourself with gambling.
I avoid casino games, as I consider it nothing more than just a scam, but I like betting.
You may say that there is no difference between casino games and betting, but that's not the truth.
I bet on sports events, but that is because I am good at predicting sports events. When you bet, you apply your knowledge and analytical skills.
If you also would like to try betting, but don't know what bookmaker to choose, then you may try betting on W88- this is the site I bet, myself.
