    It was a bad bet because Milwaukee is easily a top 8 seed in the east without giannis, right now the 7 and 8 seeds in the east are trash.

    Yup that's it. Didn't think it needed clarification.

    Take out the Bucks right now and the Bulls are the 8th seed. Then... the Hornets. That's the Eastern Conference. The 6-27 Hawks might still make a run at the 8th seed.

    I'll break it down for you in simple terms.. If your dream scenario of Giannis tearing his ACL happened in week 1 they'd still make the playoffs easily. Like winning the lottery with no payout. That's why it's a terrible bet at 80-1.

    If you didn't bet much then great, but it's still a terrible bet.

    Don't discount the value of hindsight... if you had hindsight you might some day gain foresight.

    According to basketball-reference the Bucks have 100 percent chance of making the playoffs.

    WOuld you mind posting a link I would like to check some other teams

    Aren't those percentages based on the projected record? I realize this bet is lost but I have others and it seems those percentages to make playoffs are just based on the chance of the win/loss record they project for them getting them into the playoffs.

    You still cranky?

    I don't need to be in a club for badges & stickers. You use picture cards to communicate so I can see why that would appeal to you. And free bets! Merciful god haha

    The good news is since a full season won't be played I will get refunded this bet

    The bad news (or good news for my trolls) is I had 6 for 6 season win totals that already had won or were going to win, and I also bet on OKC (+785) and Memphis (+4000) to make the playoffs, so this is going to cost me about 15k in winnings since all bets are going to be voided
