Last night was a prime example
of why one man does not make a team. The Boston Celtics last night "upset"
the New York Knicks in MSG. While I didn't truly think the Celtics would
pull the outright win, I did know it was going to be a close game and
that's why I took them. A statement came out late from the commissioner
stating that Rajon Rondo would be suspended for 1 game ( which happened
to be last night;s game ).
First off I would like to address
the fact that Rondo's suspension was announced after the pick had been made. To find out information like that after my
analysis has been broken down is never a good feeling. It possibly could
have changed the way I felt about that game but those are the risks
that you take sometimes in this business. While it would be nice to
hold off until 5 minutes before tip off to release a play, that is just
As it turned out, despite the line going from Celtics +6 which is
what we placed our bet at all the way up to +7.5 after news of Rondo's
suspension, it didn't matter anyway. Boston were outright winners even
without Rondo in what was a great pick because of the many reasons listed
in yesterday's writeup.
Last night we also celebrated the conclusion of a lucrative College
Football season as Nick Saban's Alabama demolished Notre Dame for another
championship while our CBB play on Penn State missed the spread by a
Today we have 2 NBA plays that fit nicely into our system:
#1: Take Indiana Pacers at +2 spread against Miami
Heat risking 2 Unit (7:05 pm)
#2: Take Minnesota Timberwolves at -1 spread against
Atlanta Hawks risking 2 Units (8:05 pm)
