    Well, seeing how well the Lakers played Detroit last night makes you want to jump on them vs a lesser squad. But 2nd game in 2 nights on the road after a close game they probably should have won...maybe a small letdown? The Lakers have now lost 4 out of 5 and lost some pretty competitive games lately vs some teams they likely got pumped for....Dallas, San Antoine, LaBron, Detroit.

    My NBA paly of the day is the Clippers +6 at Minny. They may be starting to roll now--won a big one on wedneday and I think they can beat a bad minny team so the points are a bonus. Only play I like tonight.

    I think I'm going to try the Knicks +7.5. Portland has been slumping a little lately after their hot run and Zach Randolph might be extra motivated in his return to Portland. Just a hunch.

    Maybe we've been taking the wrong approach with this thread, since the beginning.

    To wit:

    Anybody know or heard any definite report yet whether or not Caron Butler is in the line-up today vs the Lakers?

    If he isn't, then, here's my play for this game, which tips off in the next few minutes ...

    Feb 03 LA Lakers -4.5

    Any late information would be very much appreciated.

    In the last 30 minutes, the line is moving all over the place for this game ...

    LA Lakers -4.5, -5, -4.5, -4 ...

    makes me think that Butler is now definitely playing today.

    At Lakers -4 ... IMO, this is now still the way to go, even if Caron is good to go.

    I had a big 'ol writeup on how I liked your Boston pick and then chickened out. Anyway, Boston is now 5-0 as a dog. All the lines have been +3.5 or lower. They have 3 SU wins, a 2 pt loss and tonite's 1 pt loss and cover, aided by a 3 pointer at the buzzer I might add. They are 2-0 as a dog since Garnett has been out. They are now 36-9. Out of their 9 losses they've lost by 1, 2, 2, 2, 3 and a 5 pt loss in OT. The funny thing about their other 3 losses....they lost consecutive games to Washington on 1/12 and 1/14 by 7 and 5. In the 1st game they had a 5 pt lead going into the 4th and in the 2nd they had a 4 pt lead. And even funnier is that their biggest loss of the year was a 12 pt home loss to Charlotte...a team that is 13 games under .500 and has only won 4 times on the road. The Celtics were missing Ray Allen in that one. They are on pace for about 66 wins but have been aided by the fact that there just aren't very many good teams in the East. In fact only 4 other teams are even over .500. However, they are undefeated against the West so far.
    If you've been betting on the Celtics, Lakers, Hornets and Magic you've made some money this year as they are the top 4 team ATS and a combined 46 games over .500 ATS....a 62% clip. Not too shabby. I wonder if they can all keep it up for the rest of the year.

    And how did Pau Gasol do in his 1st game as a Laker? How about 10 for 15 FG and 4 for 4 FT for 24 pts and 12 rebounds!
    And how did Kobe do with his new team mate? How about 3 for 13 and 6 pts!?!? Ouch.....and they still won by 15!?!?
    Derek Fisher comes up huge with 9 for 18 including 4 threes for 28 pts. I wonder what was up with Kobe. Ought to be an interesting 2nd half.

    I was wondering why Orlando was only a 1 pt favorite. Somebody knew something. I had a feeling that was a trap. Glad I only took them on a 5 pt teaser. Nice call.

    At some point, you can bet your bottom dollar, this thing is going to turn around ... and, then, 'the Man' is going to regret, dearly, putting me through this (temporary?) nightmare of a season.

    Feb 09 PHILADELPHIA -6.5

    According to the latest reports I've read, Garnett & Perkins are both expected to miss today's game vs San Antonio.

    Has anyone else heard something different?

    The line opened last night ... BOS -1 ... and has just kept moving since then in the Spurs direction ... BOS +1.5, and now BOS +2.

    There's still 50+ minutes to go before this game tips and any further update would be very much appreciated.

    Garnett is out and that's the reason for the swing.........My guy has the Spurs -2.5 but I took them anyway........I typically go with the West against the East, no matter where they're playing........I think the Spurs out-muscle them today, even without their mighty mite Tony Parker.........Good Luck to you.

    Just caught the tail-end of ABC's pre-game report which mentioned Garnett's on-going absence but said nothing about Perkins (unless I missed that part of it). I think the shift from BOS -1 to BOS +2.5 might be connected more with an injury to Perkins' shoulder vs Minnesota rather than KG's abdominal strain (which is a known ailment he's been dealing with lately).

    If Perkins is out ... that's a huge loss for the C's today when going up against Tim Duncan ... BUT, at BOS +2.5 ... I will just sit and watch this game instead, as that's a lot of points to give the home team in a 1 PM game vs a Spurs team that is playing w/o Parker & Barry.

    UPDATE: Perkins is definitely out; but, at BOS +2.5, I'm still taking a pass.

    Dallas-3 @ Philly
    Khandor I smell a trap with Dallas, I see 79% of the money on the Mavs while the line keeps dropping, Opened at -4 down to -2 1/2 some places. This only encourages more money to put on dallas. Beware of this game.

    My play is philly +3 and Philly first half

    Good Luck with GS and Lakers
