Title: What a disgrace
Post by: fast does lie on May 06, 2017, 09:46:08 pm
Cavs match up well with GSW, but looks like they just aren't as athletic/fast/strong as GSW lololol

the odds are against the cavs .... vegas, analyst etc etc all count the cavs out.... NOT ME .... I say cavs will beat GSW this year in finals

GSW saved by the halftime just now hahaha in salt lake.....


my money is on the Cavs giving me 3.8 to 1 odds .... chaching!!!!

If Lebron's form continues then I'm with you. Very good odds too.

GS went up 3-1 on cavs with klay-curry + a piss poor performance from barnes. durant replaces barnes.  u want to place a bet against that?

At the beginning of the year oddsmakers were giving you just 1-1 on your money if you take Golden State as champs (maybe 1.5 to 1 at the MOST).  Cavs was like 5.5 to 1.  Towards end of season Cavs were getting 4 to 1 and Gsw was still around 1.5 to 1.

The reason Cavs got worse odds was bc the oddsmakers started to see how dangerous Cavs can be.  They added Kyle Korver and everyone started getting healthy as well, JR Smith was back, Love was nearing 100%.

But Cavs have built so many weapons this year: Lebron (who has improved 3pt touch this year), Kyrie (unbelievable scorer just a magician with the ball), Love, JR, Shumpert, Korver, Channing, TT, RJ, Dwill....

Looks to me these guys match up pretty dam well against GSW.  If i have the chance, I'd prob put a little more wager on Cavs if I can get anywere between 3-1 to 5-1 odds.... maybe even 2-1.

And I honestly can't see any other teams in the finals. Theres like a 2% chance the finals won't be Cavs vs GSW.

Another thing I thought about that will favor CLE is that they might sweep the conf finals too if they meet celtics, maybe even Wash.  GSW's road to the finals from here will definitely be tougher than CLE, thus giving CLE more time to rest and prepare, cause they have to face either Hou or SAS (hopefully Hou)

Also the steve kerr factor.  It matters, Kerr is respected and he makes a difference. Remember when he cracked the play board?  Players need that kind of passion/rage to fire them up in times of need.

If you can get anywere from 3-1 to 5-1 odds that Cavs will win it all, i think its a good proposition.  I wish I had put like $500 on the Cavs last year, getting like almost 9 - 1 odds at one point.

Post by: Coges on May 09, 2017, 10:00:10 pm
Also, on Kerr missing does Mike Brown have the experience in tight games when it gets that way. He's basically had no job to do in the first 2 rounds so far.
Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: fast does lie on May 11, 2017, 06:32:35 pm
The addition of Kyle Korver isn't stressed enough... this guy fits so well with the Cavs system, in essence the guy that guards Korver can't exactly play much help defense on the drivers, open court slashers, etc, like Kyrie or Lebron, cause of his accuracy and quick release obv.

The finals are going to be an insane series, expect it to go at least 6.  I hope it goes 7 and the Cavs win.

I'm expecting Draymond to completely lose his shit again too. He's been close a few times already.
Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: fast does lie on May 12, 2017, 04:48:00 am
Yeah it's going to be some good basketball in June.... cause the league doesn't care who wins the finals.... either team winning it will generate a lot of revenue/growth/publicity. They will however want a stretched out series but that will happen anyway.... so I doubt the refs will be given much special films or "advice" before the games.... i dunno, maybe GSW will run over the Cavs due to the revenge factor.... i hope not....
Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: fast does lie on May 14, 2017, 07:48:09 am
Just put a small wager on GSW -9 @ 1.79

might add some more $ when ref assignments come out and homer refs are revealed  ;D

Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: fast does lie on May 30, 2017, 06:59:20 pm
Kyrie better get MVP if they win it.... he shoulda been MVP last year tbh..... cause he can slither between the GSW defense in clutch

hahaha CLE in 6 thats a bold prediction
Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: fast does lie on May 30, 2017, 07:23:10 pm
this is what Kyrie going to do to the GSW "defense"

Man you guys both had CLE in 7 so I had to go with something different.

For be it's between Bron and Durant. Bron looks more dangerous though and if he can get over his clutch FT yips then he'll completely dominate. Durant will be an interesting one. Does he have the mental strength for the finals on his first trip? The other issue is that if Steph and/or Clay go missing as they tend to do in big games then will Durant be able to carry the load.
Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: fast does lie on May 30, 2017, 09:49:34 pm
I see bron as coming up big on defense, and kyrie coming up big on offense, as well as several cavs.....

all the "experts" from bookies to espn to reporters have GSW winning it.... i think they will be mistaken....

Coges, KD has already been to the finals once. In fact he played LeBron to a damn stalemate that series but Harden disappeared.
Title: Re: golden state will not beat CAVS this year hahahaha
Post by: Kingfish on May 30, 2017, 10:08:56 pm
so much hype for cleveland.

in the end, people will just blame GSW for having a super team and it's not a healthy competition.

Spurs vs Cavs would have been more interesting.

CLE are just as bad though aren't they. Kyrie, Love and Lebron vs Curry, Klay and Durant. Add in Smith, Korver, Williams, etc vs Green, Iguodala, Barnes, etc.

I like what a lot of older players (Doc Rivers, etc) are coming out and saying there's no way they would have let themselves do the super team thing due to their competitive nature. Like taking the shortcut.

That shit happens all the time in the boring reg 82 game season lol..... the home team swings first and keeps swinging plus refs help em out more, road team even coaches give up and saving energy for next night.....

actually some away team blowouts are even worse when the away team blows out home team so bad they give up at home and fans leave at 3rd quarter.....

Warriors clearly faster, stronger, and more endurance than Cavs.

If I had known the Cavs were smoking pot even in the finals and playoffs, I would have never bet on them..... these guys are a bunch of CLOWNS... they deserve to be sent to BOOT CAMP.  Potheads and drugees think they can win it all again.....
