Rocky Mountain High

The Spurs face a brutal task tonight going into Denver on the back end of a back to back. To top it off the game last night was an OT game that was very taxing to the Spurs as they made a furious 4th quarter rally to push the game to OT. The Spurs for the year are just 3-7 in the last game of a back to back. In addition,after their win last night the Spurs are just one game above .500 on the road.

The Nuggets on the other hand have had 3 days off to rest and get ready for what must be a weary Spurs ball club. The Nuggets have covered 5 of 6 games and the only game they did not cover was a road game vs the Hornets when they were on the back end of a back to back. This Nuggets team is 19-6 on the year in the Mile High City.

This is also Carmelo Anthony's second game back after a extended time on the bench with a fractured shooting hand. He should be even more effective this game than last where he had 19 points vs the Bobcats.

I feel this Nuggets team is really starting to gel and will want to avenge an earlier home loss to these same Spurs (12/04/08). I look for a close first half and then I look for the Spurs weary legs to come into play sometime late in the third quarter. Denver cruises to an 11 point win.


Denver -6 is where my money is. :thumbsup

Re: Rocky Mountain High

Nice analysis, OSU....I was on them last night for a miraculous cover but I will stay off them tonight. Hard to bet against them though when they're on a streak like this...they've won 8 of 9 with the only loss coming against the Lakers. They're in the middle of a brutal 14 out of 17 games on the road, by the way.

Naturally I had un 108 1/2 2H. 18 point winner except oops, OT. Kings opponents team total just keeps on paying. I'll hope to get a decent price at the half as I think that is where all of the factors will come into play.

Best Wishes...OF :+waving-5

Pretty much done with that as royalfan soured me on the entire posting experience. Once he and feel the truth busted my balls about being 2-4 in 2009 that was it for me. I'll bs with good guys like Ray and Travis but that is it. Not worth the abuse.

Was considering that but I feel there is a 40% chance Denver will be up DD's at the half.

Good luck and to be honest I hope you dont even get a sniff at the 2nd half play. :doh1

Thanks OSU. Don't follow the NBA myself (I have other sports I specialize in losing money in) but will throw a few bottles of wine money on your pick.

Re: Rocky Mountain High

True story, I had hit submit on Spurs +6-1/2 not two minutes prior to reading this. I know Travis is solid as a rock, and I feel lousy about my position. Thanks for posting, Travis, I assume our buddy the Cabbie likes this one too?

This time, I kept a hold of my boys and rode it out. Now, whether that was the proper decision, we'll know in about 3 hours.:cheers

I'm telling you, you're in good shape...OSU talked me out of betting the Spurs and I've been on them repeatedly during this run of theirs...teams that I don't bet in situations like this usually win about 90% of the time. I usually root against teams I get talked out of betting, but I will be rooting for you to win tonight, Munson.

When you are running good, you are running good.
You're a braver man than I....that's just asking KARMA to bite you in the arse. Sure you made a nice bet, and the line moved 6.5 points in your favor after you bet it. But the object is still to win the bet and ole KARMA would like nothing better than to put you in your place. I can't tell you how many good bets or "right" sides I have lost in my time.

I am 80% to get there at the closing market price. If they get me, they just get me. oij213490

Re: Rocky Mountain High

My bet at -6 -104 will win 80% of the time assuming the closing number of -12.5 is perfect.
OK, I see now...it really is a good bet, but like I said, I can't tell you how many good bets/right sides I've lost over the years...I guess you always remember the bad beats more than the lucky wins.

Re: Rocky Mountain High

You are hotter than hell OSU. I know that and mad props for helping so many. BUT the line didn't just move, it moved because no Parker, no duncan and no ginobli. Now if you knew that then mad props, but we both know you did not at that point. But certainly a great spot and hope you cash it boss.

Wow...I don't care if you knew or not, I'm just glad you talked me out of betting the Spurs. Duncan(32), Ginobili(32), and Parker(23) scored 87 points last night....yeah, them not playing tonight might make a difference. Sorry Munson....you're fucked!

Lets hope it cashes now. :cheers
