Let's recap all the Bad Beats and Bad Bets. Join us inside as we take a look at all the best NBA picks for tonight. So we can start making some big money on tonight's action.
On Thursday’s SportsBIT,Teddy and Pauly open the show with Bad Beats and Bad Bets. For a night with a relatively short card, in this brief intermission before baseball begins.
If you had the Under in the Hawks – Raptors game last night, you were feeling pretty good with a minute and a half left of a double digit blowout (at the time). Under bettors were not amused when the two teams scored on each of their last five possessions, including a Mike Scott three pointer from the parking lot on that final possession to send the game Over the total by a hook. It truly was a bad beat for Under bettors.
Let’s not forget the Utah Jazz! They had the Warriors on the ropes – on the road, in altitude, on the second night of back-2-backs for Golden State, leading by five with less than five minutes to play. But Golden State stiffened defensively, led by Draymond Green in the low post, holding Utah to a single made bucket down the stretch. Golden State might have been gassed, but they out-toughed a Utah team fighting to make the playoffs, winning and covering in overtime. Tough, tough beat for Jazz backers!
What about the entire country of Canada? They suffered a tough beat last night as well. When Ottawa beat Winnipeg, the entire country was officially eliminated from the NHL Playoffs, the first time since 1970 that there won’t be a single team from north of the border in the Stanley Cup chase.
Bad bets? Teddy talked about taking +20 with Philly last week at Golden State with this quote: “When you get a chance to take +20 with any NBA team, you hold your nose and make the bet.” Did Teddy follow his own advice? No, and he’s pissed off about it after New Orleans covered wire-2-wire in San Antonio last night, never trailing by more than 18 points as underdogs in the +20/+19 range. The Pelicans might have been without their five best players, but the Spurs had nothing to prove…and they played like it!
