    BCR can I tell you that the Injuns suck?

    Every time I bet them, I lose.

    They were slightly ahead all game, and then coughed up 3 in the top of the 7th. and I know they're not coming back from this 4-2 deficit.

    Go Cubs, I guess.

    Okay, I barely hit yesterday's Denver bet, which I felt was great value at +148.

    Today I just have to bet Miami. Again, not a sharp bet, just a feeling. Just looks like the Celtics have given up.

    Denver had to win on the road. Miami is right on their home court and is already being crowned the Eastern Conference champs.

    Miami -1.5 -107 vs Boston

    There was some discussion about some graphic posted on Twitter showing that Miami was 98% to win.

    Someone pointed out this was ridiculous because the Celtics were only slight dogs in Miami for Game 4, presumably would be a favorite in game 5 and 6, and game 7 would be something evenish.

    So that graphic was full of shit.

    The problem is getting over the psychological hurdle of no team ever coming back from down 3-0 in the NBA, and the general giving up attitude seen among the Celtics during and after game 3.

    Looks like a split in MLB.

    Heat giving up 16 unanswered points in the 3rd was brutal. They had this game in good shape, and then just a total collapse.

    Really hope everyone is well. The match play starts 8 AM PT so I’ll just get right to the plays.

    LPGA Matchplay - Linn Grant 22-1

    She hasn’t been able to play in America because of vax rules. I like where she is drawn. I also like her chances of a first win in a non standard stroke play tournament. Think her length will suit her well. Also very weak field. Most top ranked players are skipping.

    Senior PGA Championship - Stewart Cink 9-1

    This is an auto play in my eyes. He turned 50 Monday and gets to play in his first Senior’s event Thursday. Has shown signs that he will be a force on the Senior tour. Has played pretty well into his late forties. With it being a major it will be the standard 4 rounds he is used to as opposed to the typical Senior tournaments that are 3 day.

    On the euro tour I think Rozner is worth a few bucks at 28-1. But the euro tour is really tough to handicap. But price is good. As for the Charles Swab….I think it’s very tough to get around Scottie at 4-1. But at this point I haven’t made up my mind if the price is worth it.

    Oh yea and I think Cam Smith is the correct favorite for LIV DC. Got to bet it offshore. Betonline has him +850. The problem he has had is slow starts, which just really hurt in these 3 round tournaments. But the way he played Sunday at the PGA…I think he’s primed to play well in DC this week. But I’m not the only one. Still think it’s a pretty fair price. It’s simple…but if Cam can drive the ball halfway decent….he should be right there on Sunday.

    Guys, my little $250 bet on Cink caused BOL to lock him up and disable betting on him.

    Seriously, this happened seconds after I placed it. I'm sorry.

    Reminds me of October 2019 when I moved the international line on all books on Biden being the nominee. I really felt like a somebody.

    Hate to burst your bubble - any futures bet made twice for the max in the middle of the night “locks up” unitll someone gets in and reviews and turns it back on.

    This way if 2003 Tiger woods died in a 3am car crash you couldn't get unlimited Phil M at 15-1

    Our girl Linn 1 up thru 1

    I may or may not have splurged on substantial singles also

    Edit: can’t believe I’m following women’s golf. You know you’re a degenerate when…

    Have to say not overly confident on Linn given her play today and she’s in same group as last year’s winner?

    Incidentally I heard she was also tipped on laying up podcast

    Sorry bro. Fucking incredible. I don’t know what to say. Just an absolute collapse. Tough to even believe. She still has to win the next 6 in a row. But obviously incredibly disappointing.

    NBA nerds … where do you think the Heat Celtics line closes? Could we see -9 or more?

    I’ll admit I see a pullback from 8.5. I have no feel for the public in NBA this year. You tell me.


    Heat Gabe Vincent ankle announced out. No surprise

    I bet Celtics to win it all at +1500 and got called all sorts of names from a freind group down here in Fla and back home in Boston.

    Thats when i knew i had a good one and went back and hit it again.

    Comes down to game 6 imho.

    Padriag is going to be real rough in the Seniors. He’s been letting me down and the second I get off him he’s putting a perfect round together. Cink teeing off soon. But fucking a Paddy on fire. Cink gonna probably have to shoot 4 under at least to stay in the mix.

    Cink did ok after all, happy days, -4 t5

    Linn Grant won and even better the woman who fluked the draw beat last year’s winner…

    Obviously Grant needs to beat her also today in the final round robin, but what happens if Maddie also beats the whipping girl, as expected?

    Edit: wow, my 4 timer is live lol; sheffler t7
