Good discussion on the show Monday night about line adjustments from one game to the next in a best-of-7 series. The adjustments on totals in particular are puzzling. Look at the Hou/OKC series & Mem/LAC series as an example:
Game 1 of the Mem/LAC series flew over the total (179) by 24 points yet 5Dimes opened the Game 2 total at 180.5, a mere 1.5 point adjustment.
Game 1 of the Hou/OKC series played right around the number, total closed 213.5 and the game landed on 211. Despite the good number, Game 2 features the same 1.5 adjustment as the Mem/LAC game where the total was "off" by 24.
