    Default I've seen the light - Let the optimism bloom!

    After watching the pre-season games I'm a believer. Still not buying anything better than 7th place, but that's a 2 spot jump for me.

    I just put my money down on Raptors over 33.5 wins for the season and I feel beyond confident, even with the one game we'll lose to the Pistons because Drummond/Monroe will go beast mode and remind us that we could've had the same here. 40-42 is happening!! Lowry alone is good for at least 7 of those.

    Don't break my heart (and wallet) again Raptors. I can't take much more.

    May I asked how much money you put down?

    Not much.
    Bet 100, Pays 183
    line had moved cause people were favouring the over.

    maybe if they make the playoffs I'll buy a ticket with it.

    39 I'll be happy. I win, Rockets get a junk pick, 2013-14 is playoff year.

    btw. I meant 40 and 42 for their record. I still don't see them getting to 500 this season. I ain't that optimistic.

    I took the raptors to make the playoffs. It paid 5.50 on sportsinteraction. I bet 100 and i can win 550. I then decided to bet 100 on the over 32.5 wins because.. well, if we don't get over 32.5 win there is no way in hell we make the playoffs lol.
    go raps!

    I too am optimistic. I think our defense will be at least as good as it was last year, so that means we can expect to hold teams to around 94pts a game. What I think will be dramatically different is this hear, however, is our offensive production. If we can keep shooting the three like have been and get a healthy bargnani for the whole year I think we can average 95 pts a game.

    My prediction is 42-40, raptors win, raptors win, raptors win.
