    Never quite expected riding New Jersey team, but that is exactly why I have my neural net based simulator that keeps me from thinking. Ha ha.

    New Jersey 5* play +9 points -110 playing against the Heat

    Thanks John, I don't usually like to bet against the HEAT, but hopefully it works out today.

    Hi John,

    What do you think om Washington Wizards chances at home today against Minnesota?

    The sportsbooks have minnesota as a favorite at the spread with -2.

    Would appriciaite hearing your thoughts regarding this game if you are not busy with other things.

    Thanks!

    I heard abt NBA Totals going strong Unders to start the season and started checking them at the 1st of the yr.

    Since Dec 30 I show them at 31 overs and 49 unders for .6125.

    It appears that you favor unders and they are quite difficult to get in any other sports.

    Is this something you've looked into yourself and perhaps have some upcoming leans in the near
    future before the totals drop to compensate or maybe continue in this sport due to the shortened
    season and the fact that overs are so profitable elsewhere and the main choice of most players ?

    Briefly, I think this is a factor of fatigue, especially with the older teams having to play on back-to-back nights. I do think we should be more careful as time moves on thinking 'under' too much as the public will adjust to the situation now and then it will offer us the same winning opportunity taking the 'over' as players and teams get into NBA conditioning. The older teams, like Boston, may never get caught up quite frankly and look how well the young 76ers are playing so far this year.

    Sorry, I have a complete neutral opinion on this game. Minnesota is favored for a reason though and that is the Wizards are just not good right now.

    If you get a chance could you run a sim on the raptors vs wizards game? I'm curious to see what you get.

    Take it no matter what the number. The number or line movements rarely impact the result. i think and believe they will win the game so 1/2 point is meaningless right now. It may be at game end, but for now does not matter.

    tyrephd gave John Ryan 2 SBR Point(s) for this post.
