+1300 to win the East?

I mean, if you are a gambler, how the hell do you pass that up?

1300 on the defending conference champs who happen to employ the best player on the planet? When all that stands in the way is a group of guys with less playoff series wins than LBJ? And the team he himself took the heart straight out of their chests last year?

If I wasn't such a real life money on the line mooooooooooosh, I would be all over those numbers. Might go big on this round, and half as big on the East? +1300?

So, if you were "positive" they were winning this round, you gotta role with 100 to win 500, then throw 300 to win 4,0000.

You are betting 400. Outcomes would be lose 400, win 100, win 4500. Is that correct? Seems silly to me. If it gets ugly early, throw a couple bucks on the C's to in their home playoff games the rest of the way to get your duckets back.

Cavs have pretty much been 6-1 to win the East ever since the big trade. Were about 10-1, 11-1 to win it before the trade.

Got about $50 at each level on em. Total payoff is like $900 on $100.

Staying away tonight. They lose tonight, I'll back em in game 2.

I think the lines for this series will be like the Detroit series last year way too high, even if we lose we will cover, and I like unders in boston and overs in cleveland.

One of the best my friend.

Vegas should employ me.

You think rolling with the Lead Man is succesful?
Go Costanza on my picks and you will start bringing in some real profits.

I do remember a meeting we had for the site during college football season. We were talking about how bad Syracuse was.
Pup said IF he was a betting man he would put everything on Louisville(who was playing Cuse next) no matter what the line was.
The Cards were a 38 point home favorite and then lost the game straight up to the Cuse.

I think I actually bet Lousiville, so the mush was in full effect.

I ain't betting the Cavs, so it isn't my fault.
