  • Good to see you Blogging!

    Keep em coming!!!!

  • Totally agree Chad, very tough stretch coming up for them. I realy like what that team has as a whole though. Jameer Nelson is playing out of his mind this year.

  • Thanks, GF. You got that mean teaser going in NFL that I'm in on, so there's action tonight. Good action with SD getting 14.5

  • Joe- I am going to pass on the NBA today...I dont like that short # at home for SA 2night to be honest....I am leaning Spurs, but the short line has kept me off of it......Spurs seem like the play to be honest, but Orlando is so good on the road....I am just going to pass.

  • Great info, GF. I'm wondering if you'll have an NBA play tonite. I'm looking at the under in the Orl / SA game.

  • Good info, Goodfella.  This could be a tough road test for Orlando.  Over the next four games, they play all 3 West coast division leaders.  Then they come home and have games against Boston and Cleveland.  So over their next 8 games, they'll have to face all 5 division leaders.  I guess we'll see what they're made of by the end of the month.
