Default over/UNDER round 1 gm1 Raptors v Celtics



Bob Loblaw took the ring!
Now it's time to do your thing!

Make one or two picks. The first one is set by vegas, and will give you a long distance 3. The second is a lob from me, and it's up to you to get above the rim and complete the two points. Miss and you'll lose two, in the same way the missed gimmes lead to easy points the other way in every NBA game you've ever seen.

You can choose to look the other way and just get back on defense, by making no second pick.

Be sure to make your picks in the poll. I won't be counting picks made within the thread unless something's gone awry for you with the poll - in which case be sure to let me know.

I'll keep track of the points and we'll get through 4 rounds of 20 games together.

GOOD LUCK!

That won't happen again. The line from vegas never gets in sooner than the day before, except for the opener. I'll be hoping to get each one posted 24 hours in advance, though Vegas will on occasion hold back on setting the line until the morning of the game.

So, if I get the first one right, I get three points. But if I get the second one wrong, I lose two. So my total for the night would be one correct?

That is correct! which might be why you might choose to not make a second pick and just hope for the 3 points.

And unlike in past years, the two picks are unrelated. You do not need to get the first one right to score anything in the second.

so if you happen to miss a game - don't despair - you could get 5 in the next game while some others get -2.

I predict there will be at least 10 players who play more than half the season and still end up in the negatives.

And yeah, thanks LX.

I think I'll just skip voting on second o/u next time. Too risky

And here begins my descent into negative numbers.

Does it make sense to go negative? If one could start over at zero
