Can we selectively back teams like the Lakers in great spots, even though we want to generally fade them every chance we can get?  Will Boston slow the game down after playing in Denver?  If Co St is clearly the best team in the MWC, then how can struggling UNLV be laying 3.5 tonight in town?

Steve, you mentioned this "Chart" the books use when determining 2nd half lines in this audio cast and the video with Bryan. Would you please post a copy of it or if you don't have a copy of it, would you post the formulae the books use to set the line?

Thanks

The Chart on Sides is more complicated.

For totals it's pretty simple.  In general, take the 2h Total Pregame (I call it PreFlop), and then adjust 15% for 1st half  scoring

Example.   GAme total 150.  1h 71. 2h 79.

1h Score is 91 Points.   Make 2h total 79 +.15*20= 82.  Bump it up 3 points for the happy action funtime 1h........

Note, you can see how you can just manually do this also......a bookmaker can see "NO D!....move that 79 UP!"
