    He looked happy at game 6 when the Rockets were making a comeback.

    so there was never a point the Rockets was favored by anyone in this series. Game 7, +4.5 on the Rockets at halftime even with a lead??? i'm guessing that was bet made before the game and not a halftime bet but correct me if i'm wrong as i am not familiar with sports betting since it is not intelligent to favor a team who is losing at halftime and give the team leading +4.5. We should all move to Vegas if that were the case for any game.

    Took rockets +2 in game seven bc I thought that line was a joke... There was zero doubt in my mind that we were taking that one, I would've taken them straight up.

    I don't bet on sports or know where to go to do it. But I might if anyone has any recommendations. I'd put $150 down.

    The funny thing is, I noticed him in the crowd at the game and assumed he was there to root for the Clippers. I guess I was wrong!

    I place bets sometimes on sports whenever it's convenient, like an office bet or placing one when my habitual gambling co-worker does it and I piggyback. But I never bet on any Houston team. I feel it's bad karma.

    I took a break from gambling on sports. You get way too caught up in your bets and can't enjoy the game. Sure you might get on a roll, but Vegas is way too smart in the long-run.

    I made a 20 dollar bet with a coworker who was a clippers fan prior to the series

    i was given 10:1 odds for game 6 so I bet 1 dollar and won 10 with another co worker of mine.

    so i have enough more to buy me dinner when I watch both games 1 and 2 at home now.

    I got faith in the Rockets. Got close to 6 to 1 odds on game 1 win and 151:1 odds for win by 20+ just incase of a miracle. Go Rockets!

    Mayweather is such a fraud...the dude bet on the Clippers big for game 6. He took a big loss...

    He only shows his scores...but the guy loses just as much betting.

    Bet $100 straight up on both Rockets' series this playoffs. Used the money to buy tickets to a game in each series
