This is the first time I've bet basketball, so proceed with caution if you're following along.
I have decided to change from dollar amount to "units" when describing my betting levels. That's how all the big boys do it, so I guess I'll fall in line with them. I'm certainly a "small potatoes" punter, so my units will be worth $5 each, just as they were this baseball season.
So, without further adieu, here we go!
2 Units on Houston over Detroit @ +$135
The Rockets open in Detroit tomorrow night, pulling up the curtain on the "Linsanity" era. Newcomers Jeremy Lin and James Harden hope to improve on the Rockets' 34-32 record and make the playoffs after a three year absence. The Pistons feature Greg Monroe and an improved (judging from his preseason) Andre Drummond. Last year Detroit started slowly, opening with a 4-20 record on their way to a 25-41 season. However, they were tougher at home, posting an 18-15 record while Houston was 12-21 on the highway.
