Should be Miami Game 5clover

It'll be mine, already in at +1 and will double up when drops to pick and maybe add more at -1. clover

I don’t get why you’d bet at +1? Why not take the ML where you would get more return on a win? What’s the chances you would push? Likely slim to none. You are either going to lose or win that wager, a push isn’t likely. Thus, you are not maximizing your profit. 

not sure if y’all have noticed but rarely does the spread matter.

Why would you bet more on it at a worse line   Makes absolutely no sense

It’s called ____something Bias I forget the term. But once it moves to PK,ML the individual feels more confident in the pick since ya know the line moved in his favor and then adds on. 

it happens a bunch, but strange to see it planned lmao

@Nedtan

 Recency bias is a cognitive bias that favors recent events over historic ones…

 

 

Good Luck MO

AGREED on all comments. 

I did wait to double up from my +1 and line went to Bos-2 and I waited then went to +3 and I decided to wait and live bet at the half thinking Muami would be down and they were up 5 so did not bet Miami 2nd half. 

Still lost Large wager on Miami+1 and had them in a Large 5k parlay so lost that too. 

Had a median bet on Under which waste play.

Also had Large wagers on TB -1.5 which Miami scored 1 in 9th and had Colorsdo Avalanche -1.5  and led 3-0 and somehow managed to lose outright. 

Overall on night lost big. clover

@LVTruck

 Lol I know what recency bias is. I left it blank cause I can’t think of the term - but it’s a form of bias to see your prediction gain steam and than pile on it because of the steam. For a layman’s term we’ll go with echo chamber
