Last night, I was cuckolded by the NBA worse than Cal Weaver.
I had the Pistons -3.5 and they decide to comeback at the end of the game only to lose by 5 in overtime. I understand this happens to people all the time but the real pain comes in the five point loss. If the Pistons lost by five, then they easily could have won by five and covered but Blake Griffin fouled out so this one was in a body bag far before overtime.
This is why I hate gambling right here. I had the Magic -4 and Evan Fournier has the audacity to take a game winning shot? Doesn’t he know the spread is at 4 and I need them to win by 5? Apparently not because this fucking guy hits a game winner and my hopes and dreams of a positive Monday night were shattered with it. May have to go moneyline when were rolling with the Magic from here on out. If Mo Bamba was on the court, I guarantee he would of made sure the Magic went to overtime to help me out. Such a great guy Mo Bamba.
Naturally I bet the Celtics on a pick em line and the NBA figured out a way to cuckold me with Jamal Murray. The guy goes for 48, the second most points vs the Celtics in the last two seasons, and they win. The other three guys on the list, Steph Curry (1) Lebron James (3) and Anthony Davis (4) so it was a decent game for him. I’m not worried about the Celtics at all, but back to back road losses to start a pretty hefty road trip is never great. Expect a big bounce back from the boys in green next game. At the end of the game, Jamal Murray took a three point shot as time expired to try and get the elusive 50 point game but missed. Kyrie took the liberty of shot putting the ball to the edge of the lower section. Not much to this, Murray said after he shouldn’t have done it, but honestly, I don’t have as big of a problem with it. Young dude just had the game of his life against the Celtics so naturally he’s going to try and get 50. The response form Kyrie is perfect, but can’t hate on anyone going for the 50 bird. I would’ve followed my shot and tried to get the rebound put back too.
Last night was the beginning of the “Over 230 Theory.” The Pelicans were at the Thunder and Russel Westbrook got hurt in the second half. You can understand my nerves when the game was only at 190 with ten minutes to go and no Russel Westbrook on the court. However, with a couple late three and the Pelicans still fouling, over 234 in this game became a reality. Thank the sweet lord of gambling but more importantly the NBA for rigging games with any over set above 230 (at least last night).
Yeah, I went 1-3 last night, sue me. First night is always the toughest so at this rate I’ll probably only lose most of my money, not all. Let’s get back in the win column tonight and go with Hawks/Hornets over 230, Trail Blazers/Bucks over 228.5, and the Mavs +1.5 at home vs the Wizards. If you’re thinking otherwise, fade the hell out of me and win some cash. I still take credit for your success.
*Duke +1.5 against Kentucky, might as well get the college ball blood flowing too.
