    Golden State only -2.0 against Detroit???

    What do you guys think...does this seem like a trap?

    Of course it is...why else would GSW only be -2 favs over a hapless Pistons team? Question should be who has the "stones" to actually bet Detroit?

    Good God people - you still talk about traps? LOL Urban legend dudes!

    You do understand how good the linemakers are don't you and how they make money?

    Sorry - pet peeve.

    BTW - I'm all over Golden State LOL

    Also - this looks like an OVER game - every trend says OVER

    I did not mean to flame Jarman. But I've been sports gambling for 45 years and traps are a legend and an excuse. If Detroit wins it proves it was a trap LOL

    What I have found is that linemakers are REALLY good and know so much more then . . .non-linemakers. They make money by quantity, not quality.

    All you, me and others can do is hope for a small edge. I have my own system on SBR and it's picking G.S.

    I was watching espn last week and some analist said the syracuse game vs boston is a big "trap game" Well low and behold boston upset syracuse.. so gee maybe there is something to it

    Well, let me back off a little.

    Define "trap"

    So yea - it's a trap game for people who are clueless . . . . . but the linemakers are right.

    The reason the line is -2.5 is Detroit is a very good home team so while most people think home court advantage is like 3 points (which over an entire year would be correct) in this case it's more like 7 or 8 because in the last 20 games Detroit has been a very good home team.

    As for ESPN analysts - they have proven to not be the brightest and like most people believe what they want to believe without really knowing the facts. They were talking about a different kind of trap, not a linemaker trying to fool the public but more of a physiological player trap.

    THAT kind of trap would be if Golden State had just finished two Division important Division games and is now playing a meaningless non-conference game and then back to a Division game. THAT would be a trap game for G.S.

    If I was a contrainian without a system in play already I might take Detroit - but I have a 4 game Chase going and this is the "A" game! Being up 90 units I can't go against what is working.

    And with that said "A" games are hitting 38% LOL If you are straight betting - TAKE DETROIT!!

    Surprised nobody has mentioned David Lee is OUT for Golden State. So Warriors will have to rely almost exclusively on their threes tonight.

    well this means the over will definitely cash. Jennings couldnt guard me no way he stops curry. Now ats wise, we all know what happens when a star is out in the nba.

    The thing is though Lee is unique for the Warriors as their only inside presence. I get guys rising up when stars are out, but who does Golden State have to help fill his void?

    "Detroit are a good home team."

    13-18 record at home.
    2-6 as home underdog ATS.

    Draymond Green is a huge upgrade defensively over Lee

    Bogut questionable, he went through portions of today's shootaround after missing the last seven games.

    On the other hand NC played at FSU a few days before playing Duke at home, FSU therefore was a "trap game."
    NC wins by 6

    Gonna be at this game tonight even though Pistons will lose big. I hate their play against Charlotte when it meant alot and they had nothing against Dallas.

    no Lee or Bogut, hard to back them in this spot but I do like the over in this game

    edit: nevermind Bogut is questionable and could play tonight so that at least gives them some size to match Drummond

    what makes you think detroit would lose to gs without bogut and without lee? gs is a turnover prone team and those are a free 2 points almost everytime for a team like detroit. you have to think jennings motivation level is pretty high after sitting the majority of the last 2 fourth quarters. Drummond should abuse Jermaine Oneal on both ends and then you have draymond green having to guard a guy like Monroe in the post? Not gonna happen. Josh smith has been a mess this year I hate his overall game. But where are GS's points gonna come from in this game?

    I don't see the warriors winning this game. Can you convince me otherwise? looking forward to your insihgt.

    all you need is a terrific pg and good complimentary players to win consistently in this league, and gs has the second best pg in the league.

    What exactly happens? Like Miami without LeBron yesterday where most screamed Bulls opportunity?
    I think it is a long lasting myth backed by the show media but without scientific or statistical backing.
    No single player could be more important than the rest of the well trained and tactically organized team.
    Sure, a key player is important, but mostly in the long run.

    Boguts presence is big. another def presence and 6 fouls to use against detroit's front line. should be a good game.
