This is it. I was gonna fade the Hawks last game against the Wild, but got gun shy. Now, it’s time. Hawks lose tonight…the streak is over. Take the Av’s +190.
– VERDICT: Well, that didn’t work. How do you like stepping in front of a freight train? I’m starting to believe that this streak may be the Universe’s way of helping hockey become mainstream. I mean, last night was the first time I’ve used my Sportacular app to check a hockey score. It’s working Universe…..but how long are going to let this go on? Will they not fail once in getting a point the entire season; just so John Doe starts watching hockey with the Canadians?? We’ll see I guess.
Well, anyway, ‘I got bullied into that bet. Bullied, by the memory of a dead lawyer.’ Or, something like that.
Take Utah tonight +4 1/2 against the Bucks. Too many points.
VERDICT: The Mormons always pay out nicely.
Memphis -9 against Orlando tonight. Consider it an ATM.
VERDICT: PIN entered, and collected. Thanks Memphis.
Something is fishy with Golden State only favored by 2 against Philly. The Hound’s rule is to hold your nose in these situations. Take Philly +2. I love GS, so this is a tough one to swallow.
VERDICT: You can now go back to underachieving for Doug Collins, and seeing if you can get Bynum to play 1 out of 82 games. Thanks for tonight though Philly.
Indiana against the Clips tonight. The Hound is a backer of the Pacers to win the East, and to take on the Spurs in the Championship. So, in that vein, take the NBA’s Hoosiers -1 1/2 against L.A.
VERDICT: ‘You’re a lousy fuckin’ softball player, Indiana!’
Well, a very nice comeback was put together by Zim, and he is our winner of the Challenge. The Hound couldn’t make up any ground in the final week and remains in purgatory at the end, and DLish rounds things out, and will be purchasing the juicy steak dinner that we will be partaking in together in the Fall. All things considered, pretty nice records being sported by all participants.
The Hound 17-13
