    Well you used the Pick the Score thread to come up with what you think the line would be and keep saying "u/o" so just trying to help.

    FWIW, don't think you could justify laying 23 w/ X in this letdown spot. Probably staying away, but I'll be at the game so may play X TT U 89.5 for small potatoes.

    You guys need a reflection session with Nigel.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    I guess the sarcasm from the pick score thread didn't translate. That's on me!

    I agree with your FWIW.

    I'm on first half X -10 & the over the 155.

    Reduced minutes for Tyrique and Trevon.
    Big Minutes for Naji and Paul and Elias?
    Omara battling the 7 footer.

    We shall see.

    Ha!! I only get involved when someone posts that Vegas is trying to get even money on both sides so they win the juice.

    Vegas Loves the Muskies

    X line is -24/-24.5 now. Maybe it's having 3 kids running my ass ragged...I enjoy betting on X when I like the line movements or when I just have a feeling based on watching them for years. But I no longer bet to bet. X -24/24.5 is something I'm just no longer interested in after the Shootout. Not saying they won't cover...but I'm not taking Kent plus the points either. I'll just watch and enjoy this one. (You probably wouldn't be shocked to learn that this philosophy has saved me a shitload of money..ha)

    I enjoy the analysis BPO! Didn’t get a chance to make a play tonight but please keep posting future games if you are so inclined.

    Agree...but it gets so much harder as the season advances. Until the tourney...then it's open game.

    Thanks for the kind words - will continue to do so.

    Nigel - I agree with the increasing difficulty, which was the jumping off point for the original thread. Vegas likes to autocorrect trends from time to time, and 8-1 ATS is screaming for increasingly scrutinized lines - seeing some variance with the EU and offshore digital books with this game, I expect to see that trend continuing.

    First half hit last night at X -13.5
    Second Half hit with X -9.5 (gotta love edging the hook)
    Over of 155.5 lands
    X covers as mentioned above the -23.5

    GETUP5's TT of 89.5 for X lands as well.

    Hopefully everyone got a little love last night. I through one together for CU tomorrow. When you are sick of looking at em, let me know and I'll shut it down.
