Looking at the Mavs in the NBA tonight, and also the Canadiens. And, NO, we didn't pick Montreal just because we wanted to put our favorite hockey girl in the window, but the thought DID enter my mind!!!
Taking a shot with the Mavericks -1 point over the Rockets. Everything SCREAMS Houston in this spot. The Rockets are up 2-0. Dwight Howard finally showed up. And Dallas will be without Rajon Rondo. Actually, we think that might be a good thing. Ever since coming over from the Celtics, he was NOT a good fit, either on the court or in the locker room. Now we just need to see Dirk score more than the 10 points he had in game two, and for Tyson Chandler to show Mr. Howard why he was the defensive player of the year back in 2012. And of course, there is my MAN, Mark Cuban, the BEST owner in sports. BY FAR. Dirk & Cuban are too proud to be on the wrong end of a sweep, and we expect the home crowd to be a few decibels on the other side of NUTS! Gimme half a Benjamin on the Mavs. Also gonna drop half a Benj on the Canadiens as they look to close out the Senators in Montreal.
Totally understand that teasers are not the highest percentage play, but last night worked out pretty good. We had the Bucks +9 points against the Bulls on the adjusted line, and they covered in a 113-106 loss. In the late game, the Pelicans lost a 20 point lead, and the game, 123-119, but covered as a +11 point teaser dog. Picked up half a Benj for the effort, and after pressing the proper buttons, the calculator says that +$435 is the current NBA figure.
