What do the experts here think about Memphis (-1.5) at home vs San Antonio?

I have no idea, to be honest. I have conflicting data on that game.

ETA: sides aren't my specialty, so my opinion shouldn't really matter

San Antonio can't stop me. I'll win by 10.

Is that all?

ETA: I like the majority of plays on your card, but the Bobcats are only getting 8, not 11

I'm not sure we have an expert on full game NBA lines...if such a thing even exists..


I think I have bet one NBA game in the last two weeks, I'd rather just play whatever Quarter and Half lines Mac likes and collect profit.

I saw a pretty good quote on twitter last night about betting on the NBA.

"Betting on the NBA is kinda like eating Taco Bell, it sounds like an awesome idea and its fun to pick and choose off the menu, but you always end up feeling like shite afterwards."

It's hard. I never play a full-game line or total for more than one unit. It's usually just for fun more than me thinking I'm gonna have long-run profitability.

The issue is that different parts of the game are played so differently in the NBA. Breaking the game down into segments is the only place I've found consistent value.

+10000

Last night was the second time in a month where I bet a NBA side where the team I was on held a 17+ lead in the second and not only didn't cover, but gagged on the game SU.

Though Sacramento blowing a 17pt lead they held in the 3rd quarter last night, still doesn't hold a candle to that shite show a few weeks back where Charlotte was up 18 with 4 minutes and in some crazy circumstance ended up losing SU.

That game will forever live in infamy on the MSB. Let us forever remember the ills of taking the Bobcats as a favorite.
