over/under round 1 - Raptors v CLIPPERS standings updated
 
HEY!

There is still no line from vegas.

It's a fairly early game, so if there is nothing up by late tonight, I'm just going to make it a one point opportunity with a general o/u pick not related to the score.



OK it's later tonight now - and nothing, so I'm going with just the one question

Alex 01-21-2012 07:09 PM

Will the general be oops related?

I'd have to work too hard for that, since there are no records I know of to find the verifiable numbers.

Vegas gave up on posting o/u because Raptors always manage to go under :P

Yeah - I think there are some games that are just not profitable for them. Part of the problem here is not knowing about a couple of doubtful players.

If there is no line from Vegas, why not make up the limit yourself? I mean something around 180 would be as good guess as anything Vegas puts up for any given game this season. Modify it up a bit if the other team is a good scoring team and down if its a slow tempo team that cant score that much.

I don't expect to have this much of a problem very often. There is usually a line out by 11am to noon, and on game days where the start is at least 7pm that looks to be workable. In this case I didn't like that small of a window, and though I could set it on my own, I can't help feeling that people would be a bit ripped off if the line ended up being off enough to have changed heir result. I think the standby in these situations will be to go with a 1 point game and use the Raps scoring average.

Yea that makes sense.

It does look like most everyone got their vote in already. So I guess next time this happens on a 3pm Sunday game, I'll just go with putting up the regular line at around 11am. I just wanted to err on the safe side.
