  • I like the Under and the Suns for some reason.  

  • I scratched the teaser. I missed the good numbers. I'm not doing a 5.5 or 6 pt teaser & paying -140 or -150.

  • Ok, GF. Good luck. I played what i posted, ASU, and VR's teaser. We'll see what happen.

  • No Joe, I am gonna take the night off in the NBA & I just have the one CBB play for tonight. I will be watching the NBA games while working on my NFL writeups tonight. I may have a small 2nd half wager on 1 of the games, if I see a good opportunity to cash a play though.

  • No problem, GF. Shit, it's the least I could do. i got on you ASU play. Will you have an NBA play tonight?

  • Thanks for the replies Joe & Chad, appreciate it.

  • Good stuuf as always, GF.

    Here's more info on PHX/DEN: It ties into what Chad said.

    "...The Suns are obviously dogged in this one by 2 points, but do note that this team has been tenuous ATS of late as they are 2-6 ATS over their last 8. Denver has lost back to back covers although they did defeat the Mavs at home SU in their last contest - granted, they were up big and let Dallas come back in that game....if you want a public fade, you can take the under here as well, it's your call. J.R. Smith is listed as probable for this game. "

  • I like that stat on the Suns shooting.  That's probably why the total is so inflated tonight.
