Don't know what to think of these playin games but the market is treating them like game 7's.
I'm waiting for a thread entitled 'Laker line, what am I missing?'
why isnt it 7 v 10 9 v 8
Instead please parlay each individual series, then thank me later(almost always better price) don't let books rob you on to win it all prices.Lakers +240 is worth a shot. Lakers will get Suns then Nuggets/Blazers meaning WHEN they make the WCF you can have them +240 to win it and since they would be favored over anyone but the Clippers you can take their opponent and get a nice return
I think the Suns to win the series is a great value on a live dog. I don't know if I believe the Lakers are that healthy, just these guys are going to do what they have to in order to be on the court. Definitely has to be considered the long season/short offseason they had last year and how that hurts them now but how the layoff really helped them win the title. Suns are built well for playoff basketball as they don't have a style or offense they are married to so a good defensive team like the Lakers can't just blow them up. They have enough length to at least hinder the stars of LA somewhat. You don't stop them, but if you keep them from going wild it improves their chances. My biggest concern with Suns is their depth as the bench is ok, but its a long way down from the starters. That being said don't put it past the NBA and these refs to call silly shit and put them into foul trouble or take them out of games. That's really my biggest concern here, if Booker/Paul/Bridges are sitting more because of fouls, that's a huge disadvantage. Playing with real crowds might alleviate it somewhat, but I'm fully cognizant of how it could swing the series.
I think anyone who likes the Suns.......WAIT!
I think the Lakers take 1 of the 2 in AZ and maybe G1. WAIT! Lakers win G1 the Suns price will go even higher. If Suns win G1 and Lakers get G2 you can still get a far higher price than on the Suns right now
We'll know within the 1st half of the 1st game who's going to win this series. Portland doesn't have anybody that can handle Joker. If Facu and Gordon can put the brakes on the CJ and Dame train it's all theirs, if not the Blazers could make quick work out of the Nuggs.So POR/DEN is a pick em series. Portland currently +1 in DEN
Lakers -300 to win series yet +2.5/+3 in PHO....
Have to think LAC series price now a very manageable bet. DAL can not play any better
and LAC in the game despite ice cold from trifecta range.
At only 10% capacity and a paltry record of 20-16 at Moda I would tend to agree with you.Is POR home court that legendary? They're -380 to win the series now and the whole
world is on DEN tonight. Granted POR got all the late series money closing as the favorite
but you almost have to take DEN now at plus series money.
