The Warriors Bet Ends and Pre-Game Jitters: Suns at Warriors

Um, the Warriors are -2.5 FAVORED against the Suns tonight?  For those following along, The Warriors Bet is off, and now that I see this line I think it will remain off.  Bookies never remain behind the curve for long, and they have had ample time to size up this Warriors squad and review their mistakes. I don’t see any edge in this bet, and will be following Feltbot’s First Law of Sportsbetting: Continue reading
