Everything gambling here =D>

Who you gambling on, why?

My money is on two series at the moment:
on Knicks (vs Celtics) - Melo is white hot, Chandler, Smith, against old and injured Celtics without Rondo..
on Clippers (vs Grizzlies) - CP3, lob city, blowout..

Knicks -400 for the series is too high for me to touch. I think the Celtics match up defensively, just not on the glass. They have upset potential.

Clippers is a good bet. It's a good pay out and history suggests they will win the series. Then again, it's not a good bet if it loses.

Wow, you got balls, man! Good bets. I hope you win out!! :D
I still gamble every week but with smaller amounts now: I backed Golden State last night. Odds were 1.91...

I miss the good old times when I used to go all in though. Check this out - back in 2009 I wagered, first € 860 EUR and then € 1,238 EUR(!) more, both bets on the Lakers to make the Finals! That's a total of € 2,098 -- roughly $ 2,725 USD wagered on two single bets:

Wow that's crazy. I put 200 usd on each of those series, looks like I will win, they are both 2-0 now. I will win 160 usd, but I lost 40 usd earlier this year...

This series could go with each team winning all their home games, but I hope Clippers steal next one and seal the deal.

The Grizz are tough and may actually out do the Clips because of that toughness. I'd rather meet the Clips I think if we met either team in this playoffs, as they are less defense and more offense, like us. The Grizz essentially could shut us done enough to win rather well.

Griffin is out for the rest of the playoffs.

Chris Paul is simply amazing.

Is Griffin out for the rest of the playoffs? If so, Clips really have no chance. Grizz are amazing winning three straight and I think they'll close it out next game. Also think they'll beat the Thunder, as Conley should be able to do whatever he likes.
