MY NBA PICKS.

Believe it or not, craps is not the only game in the casino. Savvy players are winning at blackjack, poker, video poker, and more. Have a question on slots, video poker, carnival games or table games other than craps? This is the place to post. Let's hear about the games you play when you're not playing craps.

Glad to see that you're back to your routine Jamie. After a scare like you had, moving forward is a good thing.
I make my weekly trip to the casino tonight, and I'll look into what the sportsbook offers, maybe I'll join in with your picks if I can.

Greetings RickHem,

Thank you,I sure am back to my old self FOR some reason i am more calm with life.

Nothing bothers me now, when you get a second chance at life, you see everything in a positive manner.

Tonight my NBA. pick [ the HEAT - 5.5 have a 90% chance of beating that line.

If you are going to bet my picks, do not forget that their is no guarantee you will win.

Luck at the casino.

Looks like several share your opinion as the line has moved to HEAT -6.5 at most of the books here in town (Stations has it at -6), so would you buy it down to -5.5; take the Heat on the M/L (a big lay even for us darksiders); or ?

Cheers & beers, DN8R

It was -6.5 for me last night. I bought it down to -5.5.

Whenever he gives a pick, and it ends up winning.......it was always at least another point for me to lay.

Greetings DarthNater and r_ventura_23,

If you go back to my winning picks, you will see 90% of them beat the line by 5 points or more.

Anything can happen, the smart money can move that line.

Is like horse racing, the smart money can move those odds/line in such a way that your horse becomes an
underlay to bet.

I guarantee that one day i will die, and go to Heavy's casino up in Heaven.

Luck at the casino .

I was at the casino last night Jamie, and when I realized it was about 7:30, I took a walk over to the sports betting terminals. I've never used one of these aside from just poking around and seeing what could be bet on and all the options and prop bets for the superbowl. Anyway, by the time I found the Heat on the screen, they were -6.5 just like r_ventura_23 saw. I took a $20 out of my pocket, slid it into the bill acceptor, but when I was trying to select that game for my bet, it showed that betting was closed for that game. I must have missed it by less than a minute. Seeing how the game went, I'll consider myself lucky on that one.

Looking forward to betting on your picks though. Please keep posting them!

Mine wasnt as close as call as Rickem, but i had been thinking about making my first ever sports bet. My son was showing me how to bet on line and understand the terminology. I told him about jamie's picks and how its been going. He said that looks like a good bet. I decided to think about it some more then customers came in my store and i forgot it. Now im thinking about rethinking my sports betting. They dont call it gambling for nothing, as a matter of fact in Oklahoma they charge for the privilege.(craps ante for those who dont know)

The Heat was a good bet, even on the road, it just didn't work out last night. It is gambling nonetheless, but just like when a craps knocks you off the pass line, you don't switch to Blackjack......

PS that craps ante thing is BS.....

PPS Indiana is -6.5 here

Greetings guys/gals,

What happened last night, stays in VEGAS.
On to the next game/bet.

I have a question for r_ventur_23, how do you bring a line that goes up to 6.5 back down to 5.5.

Luck at the casino.

r_ventura_23 we are back on the winning column, Today the Pacers WON by 8 points and that makes us a winner two.

The score was Pacers 106 and NY 98.

The only reason we lost yesterday was because trae young SCORE 50 points.

Now, [ WON 1 game LOST 1 game ] Even.

Greetings Tgold,

Thank you for the kind words, that trae young was shooting 40 feet shots, and they were going in.

That's the only way the [ heat ] were going to lose that game, the best team lost that night.

Some nights bad teams win, look at the game last night, the knicks hung around till the end.

Tonight the Bucks should beat the 76ers by 10 points or more,unless the 76ers wake up up on the road.

Luck at the casino.
