    Sure.

    It is the betting line, it’s currently accurate, however it’s just where the money is landing as of today.

    LeBron James and his close personal friends could make a killing by placing a few bets.

    What does - and + means? Is +150 a good sign? If its closer to 0, is it a good sign?

    What does negative means?

    + means how much you win per 100 wagered

    - means how much you have to wager to win 100

    +150 means bet 100 to win 150, the equivalent of 40% probability of success. Since books want to make a profit that means they think the true odds are a bit less than 40% right now.

    I think.

    +150 means you will win $150 profit for every $100 you put down.

    +300 for Philly is $300 profit

    -150 means you drop $150 to win $100 profit


    Lower the lines better the odds, better the chances he comes.

    Could you imagine if he went to Sacramento?

    Place a bet on him joining them and then making the playoffs? Who needs a max contract!

    I think a percentage line straight up is the easiest way to display.

    Can someone explain why the odds have gone up so much for the Rockets over the past week? Is it the JR Smith blunder causing oddsmakers to believe LeBron will want reliable veterans as teammates instead of the untested young'uns in Philly? Or the futility of the Cavs trying to beat the Warriors making them believe LeBron will want to go to the team that's closest to overcoming Golden State?

    Something must've triggered this, cuz the Sixers were ahead of us prior to the Finals.

    I think it's this plus the scandal with their GM and the burner accounts. There have also been some articles, comments by Morey, and some popular people/players on twitter talking about how the move to Houston makes the most sense for LeBron.

    The lines also constantly move based on how much money is being bet, the goal of Vegas (in most cases) is to have a distribution of bets such that any outcome results in profit for them. So it could also be a lot of people betting Houston.

    I was just reading yesterday that CP3 is not going to take paycut. Can some1 tell me do we still have a chance of landing LeBron while paying CP3 max?

    That was speculation, not a direct quote from Paul. But even if Paul doesn't take a pay cut, that doesn't mean he's getting his max. Not taking a pay cut just means market value, and are any other teams really going to offer him near his max at his age?
