Well, let’s first thank Mavin for his run. All the runs end at some stage and MK’s rule prevails here and I take the command on NBA as of now hopefully not striking out soon.
What happened in the Staples Center this late afternoon was a testimony to all I’ve been advocating in regard of us trying to handicap the circus called NBA. I know some of you will not like that but nevertheless it is the truth as many of you saw me proving it more than once if in NBA last season, or NFL this season. So, the books are biting their elbows in our understanding after the Spurs covered as the public bet and the Clippers won ML as also the public bet. But what I see the books balanced it out with Under against the public and did it big.
So, now we are faced with a game that in any case we can apply the code here as we can apply the code in the Thunder’s next game. What I mean is that the Wizards aren’t going to win two games in a row – so, if we pick the Pacers plus the points here and in case they do not cover – we will take a 10 unit pick on any Pacers ML the next game accepting the juice and also parlaying the ML’s with the Thunder – that would be a “logically coded handicapping”.
The line movements are against the public both on ATS and the Totals. I will go with the house here.
This is a 5 Units Play
IND Pacers +4 -120 (buying half a point to get near the -4.5 original line avoid meddling by the wise guys)
