    Alperen Şengün is back, set to face the team that traded him away. Kevin Porter Jr. still seems a ways away from a return. ŞenHub, trade deadline (it's February!) and more -- We're talking Houston Rockets at 11:00am CT.

    Hey guys,
    I'm a big fan of sports betting , especially on NBA games.
    I think it makes boring games interesting and ur having way more fun watching other teams.

    I wan't to make this a thread to exchange thoughts and hopefully we can find some people to discuss some bets.

    Wanna hear what you think about this, i think ill just start:

    Portland vs. NOLA

    AD most likely out for the game (injured in 1st Q), Blazers won last 16 home openers - i think it's a wrap.

    suggestion: Porland -7.5 (Spread) or Portland W (only 1.28x)

    Unfortunately, i live in germany, but if u pay my flight we can definetely do dis :D

    Oh btw - portland won by 10 and covered the spread.

    For today:
    Indiana - OKC : Indiana to cover the +14,5 spread.
    Oladipo and Sabonis are lowkey winning the trade for the pacers. I think they had enough of the "westbrook has no help" narrative and want to show that they CAN help a team if they are given a chance. OKC is highly overrated right now and +14,5 looks like a gift to me.

    Grizzlies - Mavs: memphis to cover the spread (-4,5)

    We've all seen how bad the Mavs are, Grizz are playing well.
    Barnes is shooting 33% so far, matthews about 30%. Rookie Smith looks like their best player :confused:
    Looks like another gift to me.

    This thread feels a bit dark and dirty. Like a guy i know but dont know well tapping the side of his nose, asking me "do you like to party?" and suggesting i join him in the bathroom dark and dirty kind of way.

    Yea u prob right. With all the trash talk on twitter, wall is going to give 110% to destroy Ball. Another option is Wall Over 25.5 points.

    Did you hedge? Not sure of a book that would take a bet large enough to make it worth your while but wow good luck!

    If he did hedge, would that basically mean he is guaranteed 250k?. Think I would do it. if you can turn 1$ into 250k guaranteed think u have to take the deal. Even if you had to pay some interest on a loan it's probably a sound deal. We're talking free money at this point. Invest it and you'll make your 500k eventually.
