    Yes, they do have Home Court advantage for sure. They are the #1 overall team in the NBA.

    -300 prob too steep....-250 sounds about right. Maybe even -200-225.

    It'll be like -160ish assuming both of these teams wrap these series up without injuries and in short order

    Im debating to wait and hope that rockets win g1 so then I can slam warriors for the series, or I could be $hit out of luck if the warriors win g1 and ill never see the original series price again. I strongly believe the warriors will beat the rockets pretty easily in a best of 7 series, provided no injury

    If you really think a line is mispriced and a team is better then you should just bet it really. It's either value or it isn't, trying to time getting on the train right before it leaves the station is tough.

    I think Curry's health is a legitimate question mark, he doesn't look great. But yeah, I got some futures on GS from the beginning of the playoffs. Once they played SA rd 1 instead of a tougher team, I thought their pathway got pretty easy.

    Capela will be the key to that series, he gotta make GS pay for going small. He's improved a lot but that will be a tall order. Getting Mbah Moute back is nice too. I just think the overall talent disparity is still pretty wide. I think Houston has the right defensive scheme in terms of just rapidly switching every single action that GS runs, I think that is probably the best defense, just tough to have the individual talent to stop GS.

    Harden/Cp3 do a great job staggering and making the game easier for one another, but don't necessarily compliment each other on the floor at the same time as well as GS guys do.

    Rockets remind me of the Spurs in '03 a little in that they weren't really better than the Shaq/Kobe lakers but they were slowly built to beat them over a period of 3-4 years and finally caught them at the right time.

    perfectly said, do you think I could catch a better line for the series if I wait?

    I mean, if they lose obviously the line will get better. But if you like GS to win then just pop them at -160 or -170. Maybe if the line is like -200 you would wait, but I don't see it being that high.

    That stuff is tough to time. Hard and fast rule I use is that I never bet a team for the series after they win game 1 unless the circumstances are extenuating because I feel like I should've known they were the value before that game. So if GS wins game 1, the ship kinda sails a little.

    exactly, I would hate myself if I waited and then they won game 1... but we ll see, might just take them to win it all... line is hovering around -120 ish now. dont see any team from east keeping it close with them

    1 play tonight

    76ers ML (-250) Risking 7.5 units to win 3

    I expect them to win by 10+, but will reduce my stress by taking ml

    I don't understand this bet that much. Why do you like Philly here? I was thinking this could be a Celtics blowout. The 76ers have not shown me that they are capable of winning a game and certainly not a 10+ point win.
