    Rockets fan in LA here. Bet with my friend $100 that Clippers don't make the second round. Overall a good bet or could I have done better?

    Good bet. Chris Paul n Griffin are the most overrated / choking stars in the league.

    The Over-Under for the Rockets v Denver game tonight is 240. :eek: I think a Rockets game has only covered that about 12 times this year.

    To clarify, guys, my bet is for the playoffs, that clippers don't go to second round. Nothing to do with tonight's game.

    The problem is if they face the jazz, are they not favorites against the jazz?

    My greatest bets:

    40-1 Cincinnati Reds Sweeping the A's in the world series. Yep. They did it ( 1990 ).
    33-1 Birdstone to win the Belmont ( 2001 ).

    You could have done better. Clippers have 2-1 record against Utah Jazz & the only time they lost was when Jazz went off from behind the arc (14/21 - 66.7%). I don't think they lose that 4-5th seed.

    So you seem to be a guy I can take advice from. What would a clippers jazz series look like?

    They set bail at $100, I hope the Clippers lose in first round so I can get out of this jail cell.

    Update: Today I made a new bet of $100 in favor of the clippers in order to effectively cancel out my original bet.

    I figure that without Rudy G, the jazz don't stand a chance, but took advantage of the fools gold that was joe Johnson in game 1.

    Wise move, or should I have kept the $100 on the jazz as my only bet?
