Thanks Reds. Unfortunately just saw this now.
Boinking this up for a bump.If it was in other threads it would be called a "hot take"....but barring injury I don't see either team getting past Miami. I bought the Heat/Lakers finals ticket earlier in the week I think it's +1800 or something like that. Has to be half that now.
Dude was shitting on anyone who had the audacity to question the Celtics during the regular season and when he finally had to put his money where his mouth is noped out.Boinking this up for a bump.
Well that’s a pretty dumb take.Dude was shitting on anyone who had the audacity to question the Celtics during the regular season and when he finally had to put his money where his mouth is noped out.
So was comparing this year’s Celtics to last year’s WarriorsWell that’s a pretty dumb take.
Thank you for your contribution to the gambling thread. Really insightful.So was comparing this year’s Celtics to last year’s Warriors
You’re welcome.Thank you for your contribution to the gambling thread. Really insightful.
Yeah, I bought some of that. They are up 2-0 and are going home. The odds of them dropping 2 straight home games is low and even if they somehow do, they can easily win 2 of 3. And then you’ve got a great hedging situation. Of course, if they play the Nuggets, they’ll probably be decent dogs because the betting public can’t fathom that this Heat team is actually legit.At this point, Heat +440 to win the title is probably pretty good value, right? They are the 8 seed because they were old/banged up all year and their 3 pt% took a shit. Now they're healthy and their 3 pt% has reverted back to the top of the league level its been the last couple of years.
Wow. Well anticipating the Refs sidelining Jokic worked out, stopping Murray worked out… and then they couldn’t hit any shot. Wide open 3s, layups. Woof. Credit to the Nuggets for battling through and having their supporting cast step up. Night night Lakers.Scooped up a ton of Lakers +moneyline.
we’ll see how this plays out…
Woof. 0-3, that’s what happens when they are all correlated. This is what I get for going against HRB.I took Celtics first quarter (-110 moneyline), first half (-110) and under first half Heat team total (52.5).
HRB is on the Heat and Heat team total over so be forewarned.
I think the Celtics defensive effort will be very strong at the onset. No idea what happens once they get punched in the mouth though.
I had 15 and was riding the Heat bench garbage time lineup.Ha, I had Heat +14.5. Win win!
For future reference for anyone here: RI Sportsbook is run through Will Hill. This in effect is Caesars odds, so they'll be the same ones you see on ESPN, since they sponsor the WWL's programming.The line was on RI Sportsbook. It has now changed to Heat -275, Celtics +220.
Took the under at 211.5. Thought it was a goner as the 4th rolled on.Couldn’t believe the O/U opened at 212.5 I started getting limited to 4 units on DK so had to get creative to get some more down.
At 211 and falling… get it fast…
It opened at 206.6! I’m assuming it’ll close around 200Took the under at 211.5. Thought it was a goner as the 4th rolled on.
Monday night is currently at BOS -8, O/U 203. Really low number but I lean under. Unfortunately also lean MIA +8, but hard not to think that the heat are mentally broken after last night.
I, unfortunately, killed it last night shorting the Celtics as an emotional hedge. I’m also sitting on the following tickets:Ahhh my safe space lol.
Hope a bunch of you followed my Twitter stuff and crushed the past couple weeks. Was telling someone last night that I pride myself in never allowing fandom bias to affect my capping but last night in the live betting space for the first time I can recall it did. We tweeted out the Under and rode some Miami series money to the end with no hedge so wagering wise it was a great night. But it was the live betting opportunities that were fuckin massive last night and I didn't pull the string on any of them.
Following 3 straight emotional elimination wins I had my mind set on looking forward to placing very likely what would be my largest exposure ever on Denver as a slight ML dog in G1 vs Boston knowing that the C's tank would be empty and unable to emotionally handle opponents runs. I refused to acknowledge that this could occur one game sooner even after Miami +7.5 was available for quite some time in the 1Q following Tatum's injury and the early evidence that this offense was out of sinc. I added some Under 197.5 early but kept believing, as a fan, that we could "find a way."
Recognize mistakes, don't repeat them, and improve. In wagering as in life.
Haven't pulled trigger on G1 yet but the Nuggets should score a shit ton of points.
Very nice! The numbers on Miami in these playoffs have been so outrageously off I can't even comprehend it. They looked like the best team in the EC during the series prior to Boston it's literally mind boggling to me these numbers.I, unfortunately, killed it last night shorting the Celtics as an emotional hedge. I’m also sitting on the following tickets:
Heat +8000 to win it all
Heat +2000 to win it all
Heat +750 to win it all
Heat +550 to win it all
All of these in the form of free $10-50 bets. Thoughts on how to effectively hedge this position. I see that Nuggets in 6-7 pays out +450 and +300, respectively. Nuggets sweep +500 or so.
Should I take positions on all three given the odds? Nuggets in 5 is +230 so not great.
Yeah, that’s my problem. Hedging -350 before the series doesn’t seem like the play but I think I might start with some smallish Nuggets in 4-6 positions. Miami stealing one of these first 2 games would be ideal but if they don’t, Nuggets in 5 feels like the result.Very nice!

Personally I have similar that I played 3-4 weeks ago on Miami and LA so I can pass on what I would do since the emotional toll the Boston series took out of them along with reintroducing Herro into the mix doesn't bode very well for them at least early in the series. A 4-0 sweep of either Miami or Boston was in the cards the way the EC played out especially how the Boston series was aligned by beginning away from Denver.
I'll start with my expectation of either G1 or G2 being a complete bloodbath. The problem is that as a 9-10 pt favorite that you need to hedge only for the win it becomes kinda expensive with ML.
I’m sitting on a bunch of Heat tickets (sigh…) so I did Nuggets -1.5 games at -160. Hope they take the first 2, as most expect they will.I went with 10 units on Denver winning the series and 2 units on them sweeping. Almost went 4-1, but I really think Denver rolls here.
Be careful. Caleb Martin is going to drain an off balance 35 foot three pointer after chasing down an errant pass.Nuggets and Heat are both -115 to score the first basket. Jokic is taller and has a longer wingspan than Adebayo so I'm thinking he's the favorite to win the opening tip. Might put some money on the Nuggets here.
