Gambling 2K8: Chapter 46 (NBA And Whatnot)

A quick thought before I give tonight's NBA Vickers: Why are LSU-Arkansas and Nebraska-Colorado the games played the day after Thanksgiving? Neither matchups are considered rivalries and both games feature teams (Arkansas and Colorado) who are hardly ever relevant nationally. You would think networks would push for top-flight games pitting powerhouse programs against one another, considering the lack of games this weekend. That is all.

The NBA Vickers...

T'Wolves (-2) at Thunder

Words: The 3-10 T'Wolves are road favorites? Really? I know Ok. City stinks, but Vegas just confirmed it.

Grizzlies (+10) at Spurs

Things: With Manu back, the Spurs are finally rounding into shape. The Grizz...that's another story. They've lost their last four by 15, 9, 13, 17...and the "13" was to the Spurs...and the score doesn't indicate what a blowout it was...and the game was in Memphis...and it was Manu's first game back...and the Spurs should win this sucker by 20+.

Blazers (-5) vs. Hornets

Stuff: Five just seems like 2-3 points too high. Plus, the Hornets are better. That should count for something, right?

Record: Be patient, my people.
