How do you think our odds would be affected if we were to somehow land Dampier?

One thing that you have to take into account is what teams are receiving the bets. Sports betting lines are often moved by how much money is being placed on a certain team. For instance the Bucks, Blazers, Suns and Jazz have a better chance at winning it all then New York but since there will naturally be heavier betting in the New York market that would be a reason the odds for New York are not as friendly as the other teams that I mentioned earlier. Also, same goes for the Nets and why they have worse odds then where we would expect them to finish.

As for the Heat, Their odds are more of a result of the heavy action on them due to Shaq's arrival making the line what it is and not so much what their chances are.

I hope this makes a little sense of sports betting! :confused:

LOL well I can get 10 - 1 here in the UK on the Pacers, shared 5th with Miami, so I know where I'm going to leave some money tomorrow, always worth a few bob :)

ABLE -

You do know you have a potential money-making situation there, right?

Years ago, I had the same opportunity on an Ali-Foreman fight. Reno had one set of odds favoring Foreman, and Vegas had a different set of odds playing Ali.

It's like having two separate online trading accounts and actually shorting in one prior to closing out your long in the other.

Anyway, for example:

Where you are, a $2K bet on the Pacers at 10:1 will win $20K if the Pacers happen to win. At Caesar's, a $14K bet on the field will win $2K if the Pacers lose.

Playing them both against each other, the Pacers lose and you break even; the Pacers win and you have netted $6K.

The wider the difference in the odds at two different locations, the greater the potential gain is.
