I am checking around the odds for the Lakers to win it all and sportsbook.com has a 5/9 chance to win it all, and betonusa.com has a -200 for them to win it all. However sportsbook.com has no Spur/Laker line, but betonusa.com does have the Laker/Spurs line of like -1800.
The question is should I bet on the Lakers on the 5/9 line now or will that get any better?

My NBA Finals predictions. Long, boring games that will probably not be very close. MAYBE the Celtics and their "Big 3" can win a game but thats doubtful the way the all can't seem to show up for long periods of time. Ray Allen ? Invisible. Paul Pierce ? Inconsistent. KG - Steady but not good enough to carry them past LA or even SA. Pistons are no match for either WC Finals team. They'll never even score 90 in any game.

Alot of boring basketball that will be hyped to the hills by ESPN. Guys walking all over the place, missing foul shots and lots of timeouts that make 2 minutes turn into 1/2 an hour. Unless Stern gets the refs to call Gasol and Odom tighter then everyone else its already over once LA finishes off the Spurs. BTW - when will SA realize Horry and Finley have been stealing money from them for a couple of years now ?

How true is that. I haven't heard those guys names in about a year, and I don't think it was for a good reason either.

I have decided not to jump on the Lakers bandwagon.....not worth the risk. Tonight the lakers are -360 to win, and -2700 to win the series. But I think if they lose tonight Spurs take it to atleast 7.

Jacob, my friend I need to talk to you before these games more often. This was the biggest fix I have ever seen. Line minus 7.5 wtf was Sasha doing shooting that three????? I loved every min of it.. I hit another 200 tonight... because that line was way too high for that game.. that makes 7 in a row in the playoffs and before this streak i had hit 10 in a row.. God I love the playoffs too easy to read these lines... I like free money

This is the only year for the Fakers.. Look for NO to win the west next year.. I also think Portland will make a lot of noise next year..

Are you serious? The Lakers have a good shot at being even better when Bynum comes back. NO is good but I doubt it will be any easier than it was this year.

My prediction is right so far, Lakers 4-1. They put some awesome lines on the Lakeshow! Got up about 200 last night too.. More money for boxes!

All I need now is for the C's to finish it 4-2 and the Lakeshow to bag the championship 4-3!

Lakers will be a threat for the next 5 years. (according to analysts) and oh god they are always wrong... Somehow people who work for offices and whatnot are always better than the analysts... [/sarcasm]

GO LAKERS!

You really think Boston will win tonight? I mean I think they will win the series, but not tonights game, they barely pulled off game 5 at home.

Nope Jacob, a big rule is in effect tonight.. never bet against an injuried player and with Rip hurt the Pistons should cover..

To the other points about Bynum, who is to say they will be able to work together as a team when he comes back. he will want to get his touches and that will take touches from Kobe, Gasol, and others.. I think it could be hurtful having him in the fold next yr. just my 2 cents.

This is mine:
05/30/08 221 Celtics(Boston)
+180 +5 (-105) Over 175
Matchup Trend Sheet
20:40 ET 222 Pistons(Detroit)
-220 -5 (-105) Under 175

I haven't bet on a game since the superbowl and only bet on the NFL. Just got into the betting mood cause of the Wings, think im gonna bet on this game, put another bet on the wings to win the cup, and then bet on the laker at a 2/1 favorite to win the finals....

That could be true, but the Lakers will be adding more talent to the players they already have on the floor. If for some reason that doesn't work out, they still have a REALLY good team that should play on the same level if not better as they will have more playing time together.
