I’ve always been fascinated with spreads, over-unders, etc. when it comes to Sports and Gambling.
Although I never placed a bet in my life. I often picked games just to measure my success/failure rate. Like any amateur, I have nights were I felt like I could have made a bunch of money and other nights where I am glad I am not a gambling man.
I figured this forum would be as good as any place to position my picks and broadcast my failures or successful choices.
Boston Celtics vs Indiana Pacers – Pacers are given 6 points. Definitely not enough in my opinion. I take Boston. – Celtics
Orlando Magic vs Cleveland Cavaliers – Cavs given 7 1/2 points. Again, not enough for me. Magic should win by 10+ – Magic
New York Knicks vs Miami Heat – Knicks are given 8 1/2 points. I’d love to see NYK win this but I dont see it happening. They probably will lose by more than 8 1/2. – Heat
Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls – Bucks are favored by 9. Just on gut and no logic I will roll with Milwaukee. Chicago has been pretty shaky lately vs NYK and took an overtime session to beat the Pistons. – Bucks
Los Angeles Lakers vs San Antonio Spurs – Spurs are getting 3 points. To me this is a “pick ’em” situation because who ever wins is winning by more than 3. I’m going to take the Spurs because they are playing that good and LA just is not. – Spurs
Portland TrailBlazers vs Denver Nuggets – Nuggets are getting 7 1/2. This should be a close game and I don’t think Portland beats Denver by 8 points. With our without Melo. –Nuggets
