    Basketball Parlay of the Day Contest - Sunday, 4/27/08

    Starting Tuesday (April 1), we will start a new April Hoops Parlay Contest with a prize of $250 account at 5 Dimes, 3 time roll-over. Last place will receive a $25 5 Dimes account with a 3 time roll over. If there is a tie for last place in both units and game-by-game record (15 parlay minimum), there will be NO last place prize.

    *IMPORTANT*
    All players must have an account at 5 Dimes prior to making picks Sign up here

    Before participating, players must PM their 5 Dimes account ID to SBRforum Staff


    1. Check in the NBA BASKETBALL HANDICAPPING FORUM each day for the daily thread to be posted by LT Profits. Lines will be posted by 1:00 p.m. (ET) each day. Plays may be posted before that, but the official posted lines will be used for grading.

    2. Posted spreads and totals are the only eligible plays for grading, no Money Lines or Halves allowed. NBA, NCAA Men's and beginning April 1, NCAA Women's games included.

    3. Two-game parlay picks, laying 10 to win 26. Post entire parlay at same time, no open parlays.

    4. Here’s the catch: Your play must include a write-up! The write-up does not have to be long, just a sentence or two about why you are making your play. If need be, please refer to prior month's contests for examples.

    5. Entries that are past-post or do not have analysis for both games will be NO ACTION. Once your two-team parlay has been posted, you CANNOT change either play. Any edited post will count as a LOSS! If you make a mistake (such as leaving out "Over" or "Under" or not clearly stating your selection), need to add analysis or wish to enter corrected lines, do so in a separate post. This holds true even if the first game on the schedule did not tip off yet. It also holds true for past-posts and entries with no analysis. It does NOT hold true for posts that are not parlay selections, i.e. standings, commentary posts or congratulatory posts.

    6. And here’s the fine print:

    • Must be 18 years of age or older to participate.
    • One entry per household and IP address.
    • Must use lines posted in daily thread by LT Profits
    • Maximum one parlay pick per day, minimum 15 parlay plays required to be eligible for monthly prize.
    • Tiebreaker for first place - Win % of individual parlay legs. If still tied, combatants will carry on a head-to-head parlay match until winner determined.
    • All decisions made by SBR with regards to this contest are final.
    • SBR employees eligible to participate but are not eligible to win the monthly prize.

    Hornets +5 They will get there momentum back and CP will not be able to be stopped, just like in games 1 and 2.

    Phoenix -3.5 I don't think they will get swept. They dominated in games 1 and 2 and blew the leads in the 2nd half. They hold on for the win this time and play like a team.

    Wash/ Cleve under 190: seems like one or not both teams struggle to score.

    S.A./ Phoex over 201: Another low total for a Phoenix game.

    CAVALIERS +4: The Cavs had their off game in Game 3. They won't go 2 for 16 on their three-pointers today, so Wizards won't be able to clog lane again. James goes off like the first two games.

    SPURS +3.5: The Suns looked like a dead team Friday, and I am not convinced they have the pride not to get swept. Even with their best effort, I see a tight battle here.

    NO +5, Hornets are the better team and they don't admit to smoking weed

    Detroit -5.5, time to stop playing around with Philly and risk becoming a laughingstock in the next round

    Cleveland +4
    They bounce back after being routed in game 3 and win outright

    Cleveland/washington UNDER 190
    Look for a low scoring game 4 after washington lit it ip in game 3

    #713 Det/Phil ov 180 : Flip better flip the script and light a fire under the Pistons, they've had a tendency to play great on sundays this year, so i look for an over.

    #715 NO/Dal un 195 : i guess it wasn't a fluke the the Mavs beat the Hornets @home to end the regular season, the Hornets just can't win in Dallas it seems.

    Spurs +3.5: Get the brooms out. Tanked it, I guess.

    NO-DAL U195: The line for this game is too high every game.

    Spurs 3.5 Got to think the sun's fading in the west.
    Dallas under 195- These teams got to be sick of each other.

    Det/Philly under 180 - Defense should continue to dominate

    NOK/Dallas over 195 - Not convinced Dallas can control the pace again

    SPURS/SUNS OVER 201
    It's gone over, the last five games.

    HORNETS/MAVERICKS OVER 195
    It's gone under, 8 of their last 9 games.

    713 Detroit Pistons/Philadelphia 76ers over 180 -110
    I feel Detroit pushes the pace as they did in game 2 to try exploiting the Sixers weakness. Sloppy play and constant turnovers kept the last game under.

    715 New Orleans Hornets/Dallas Mavericks Over 195 Hornets come out gunning after a 38% shooting performance. I expect both teams to push the the pace as they did in game 1 and 2...if both teams shoot at least 42% this game will go over.

    Suns -3.5: They'll win this one, but not the series.

    Suns Over 201: Should be phoenix paced and high scoring.

    Philly +6-They have all the momentum right now, and believe they can take the series, just like Goldenstate did a year ago.

    Suns -3.5-Both teams should be playing relax in this one, I have a hunch spurs might tank this game, and try to win it at home instead. After all, no team has ever came back after going 0-3.

    Yep, me too!


    So that's the end of the month for me.
    @ least I can truthfully say:
    "I finished in the (+) each and every month of this contest"!
    Not many players here can say that truthfully.
    And not to shabby I must self admit, for an ol' retired melon farmer!

    GL to Vbomber (and) Diogee.
