So maybe I was too optimistic regarding Rose-less Bulls after all

Just only after finding out Derick Rose is out for the Bulls for the playoffs now after he injured himself! Who knows how Bulls will respond. No doubt they are better off with him than without.
Lakers won.

Bulls defence was muck.

How good would you say the prices are for NBA in Paddy Power?

They have the best market prices at the moment for the two favourites tonight.

Seeing as most of my winning bets have been on stuff I don't fully understand, I have done this...



I really don't understand America, although Australia makes a bit more sense.

This shall work out!

If I was asked the exact rules of Baseball, Basketball or Aussie Rules, I would not be able to give an definite answer - which is why I do not usually bet on them. I know a decent bit, but I am not 100% on the intricate stuff.

The bet was a fail anyway, although I made a in the running bet on the Celtics when they were Evens which saved my fiver.

I wouldn't back them with your money. No way are they good enough.
Doubt they'll even get past philly.

Like the guy above said Spurs or thunder and maybe the Heat.

Haven't posted here in a while but thought I'd share my US tips if you're looking long term:

bet: Detroit Tigers to win AL Central (evens with PP...can't see the odds drop much more so time to get on board)

lay: Nationals in NL East (2.7ish with bf)

bet: Cardinals in NL Central (17/10, strong team a couple of form players away from being the best in the league)

Any early value in the NFL?

The Gameweek 1 lines are already up.

KC to win their division maybe. Haven't looked at their schedule yet though.

I like giants -4.0 (evens)
Indy Bears over 43 (20/23) - still questioning if ill put this in as its hard to know what Qb will do
Jax Vikings over 38 (5/6)
Seattle -2.5 (5/6)

1 returns @ 12.57

Ive decided never to bet for or against my team ever again as it cost me so much last season. But id be taking the bills on the nose going on pre-season form @ 6/5

Patriots -4 at 10/11 looks good to me, adding Atlanta -2.5 10/11 at KC with Gonzalez to have a big game.
