    With MLB, NFL, College, NHL, we are lucky to have a variety of plays. Sports are just entertainment for me and I take Casino visits to the Baccarat tables much more seriously. To you guys who take Sports more seriously then my advice would be:

    Stick to Totals in NBA
    Monitor Line movement
    Pray

    GLTA.

    Totals only imo. The NBA season doesn't really start until the playoffs.

    Harder to see many spots without grinding through the market, but on the face of it you are right.

    It's those spots that matter and the risk in the grind is not a good one to take unless you really got it down.

    This is how I handicap an NBA.
    Avoid the sides all together because it's a total dart throw.

    The great indie bookie "Buzzy the Bookie" once taught me to concentrate on games that involve teams on the back end of a two game back to back.

    Buzzy also taught be to stay away from ordering the halibut from the bus station lunch counter.
    But that's another story for another day.

    I'll bet NBA totals and over only if teams like Miami or Boston, and a couple of others that understand the concept of team defense.

    I'm done. Tonight was horrible. I love needing two players to get one more point and get pulled from the game.

    Don't care the number. Cavs win in a route from start to finish. This game has been penciled on their calendars for over a year.

    Well actually not a year. It was last March. Lebron came to Cleveland and put a beatdown on the Cavs. He was prancing, dancing and strutting like a peacock. Coach Bickerstaff was unhinged. He was pissed with the team. He put them on blast. They got caught up in the spectacle that was Lebron James. James even had a highlight dunk over Kevin Love that was all over the media. That lost really set the downward spiral, including injuries that pushed the Cavs into the play in.

    JB rested Mitchell and Garland in prep for this game. They'll be ready.

    Cavs not bad this year, with 2 point shooting on par with Lakers but the cavs 3 point shooting has been pretty good compared to the league, so far. And that's just shooting.

    I put some of the info in your Laker shoot around thread.

    I've found NBA you gotta go ml not points. Points are just too damn fluid in the close games at the end. I like to parlay a few home teams and do okay with that. Good teams on the road regularly fall to bad teams so I try to stay away but do take some. I'm super small-time and just play for entertainment. I ran $100 up to $700 last year on 3-5 team NBA ml parlays then lost it all screwing around in the playoffs. This year I'm off to a rocky start but am 6-0 the last two days (two 3-teamers) - Bucks, Nuggets, Wolves today - Celts, Grizzlies, Mavericks yesterday. Got pretty lucky with some yesterday. As the season plays on I find there are teams that can be trusted more than others. This year Clips and Nets are at the bottom of that list. Suns and Jazz not far behind. I like T-wolves, Bucks, Celts, Nuggets, Hawks, Cavs. Not that the teams I like win everyday. They are just somewhat reliable to not shit the bed against a bad team.

    That was great info KVB. I have to print those graphs out and digest everything.

    I’m on Cavs 1st q, 1st half and game. Looking for the trifecta. They are a great 1st quarter team to bet on the last 3 seasons. The coach is good at preparation. His in game adjustments and rotations can be questionable. If the cover today, I’ll roll it all up to 1st q tomorrow vs clippers.

    Don't print, lol, they're already obsolete.

    That was as of Friday, numbers already different. But of course as we move on it get's harder to move your everall percentages.

    So we'll break it up into a mix of recent and overall picture.

    If you know where a team has been, and you know where they are, you have a much better chance of knowing where they are headed. And that's the name of the game, right?

    I might make a regular thread updating that stuff and adding more. The question is how well can it be seen? A lot stuff on those charts, are they worth putting in a post or is video better?

    I think it's useful info for any level of bettor.

    I literally have the Cavs winning this game 114 to 110, tought to get a bet here.

    I see the market blinking a bit with the Cleveland action though.

    It's interesting.
