10/5 and 11/3 last 2g, minutes way up, Jokic has made him viable this series so this is a volume play on 25+ minutes. Green Dot Daily pick. NOTE: This is logged as a Custom Bet for the time being, so if you click tail, you'll need to resolve the bet yourself after. I'll be tracking auto-grading markets again soon.

First 2 Nuggets games this series 89.5 PPG. 3g since: 117/115/112, so 114.7 ppg. Denver has found offensive answers, so Minn gonna have to outscore them now. Green Dot Daily escalator pick. NOTE: This is logged as a Custom Bet for the time being, so if you click tail, you'll need to resolve the bet yourself after. I'll be tracking auto-grading markets again soon.

Betting Highlights
Favorite Bet of All-Time
Bet the Texans to go from worst to first in the division, and even doubled down with a Will Anderson DROY cherry on top. Joe Flacco CPOY +25000 and Nuggets over Heat +1600 exact outcome were fun, too!
Most Heartbreaking Bet
MVP bets. Tom Brady +1400 in 2021, odds-on favorite in December, but shutout vs. Saints on SNF. Nikola Jokic +900 in 2023, rightful leader all the way, but the moron voters get bored and go with Embiid last minute. Brock Purdy +5000 in 2024, odds-on favorite on Christmas, but the voters are too proud to vote for him or Dak. You're killin' me, Smalls!
