[quote="Freethrow_Lion, post:7, topic:1885"]What was the ML? Something like 15?[/quote]
total for the game is set around 129.5
Last night, I had be the under. Given recent history between these 2 teams, I thought it was a very safe bet.
When you make a bet like that, you become more conscious of the total score and the pace of the game. I always figure that a point total of around 130 makes for a pace of 3 points per minute (120), with the remaining points (10) being accounted for with all the fouling at the end of the game.
The teams came out at a scorching rate. They should have had about 30 points at the 10:00 mark, but they had 36. With 5:00 to go in the first half, they should have been at 45, but were at 55.
The scoring stopped after that. The two teams scored only 17 over the next 10 minutes and a total of 64 more points for the rest of the game.
