***: I am probably going to have a small bet on the under if it gets out to 214.5 + ( I am not betting on the over at this time).
update (~1230 pm Pac time)
My line estimate hasn't changed (still Raptors @ +2.0) but I think the next line change will be towards the Warriors (78% chance that they go to -3 at most to all books).
In other words, if you are a Warriors punter you should take the -2.5 (available at most Vegas books atm) and,
If you are a Raptors punter you should wait or take the +3.0 (available at COASTS, WYNN, CIRCA and MIRAGE-MGM according to Vegas Insider).
The 210.5 total is gone , and it is now between 211 - 212, with most @ 211.5.
Since I will probably be asleep when they decide If looney*** is in or out, then i would probably adjust my estimate for warriors to -1 (if he his out) and up to -3.25 ( if he is in)
***: this is just my estimate , I will put up a more rounded estimate when I look at the website tomorrow that gives me their estimate of what it is worth having him play (or not)
Got to 212.5 with at least one book now, but most are between 211 and 212 (211.5 average),
If you like the under you should bet now,
If you like the over wait as I think it will be between 211 and 210, in 5 hours or less

***: Available at stations according to Vegas insider,
There is + 3 available for the Raptors @ two books now, the rest are +2.5 (will still be fairly stable til the books/punters have an idea about looney)
i think the fair total should be around 212, so I had a 440 on the over 210.5 I (would have preferred to bet on the under, but only if it gets out to 214 +).
Update (~ 2pm pac time)
the 214 is no longer available at STATIONS, 213 @ PEPPERMILL is the highest (most are at 212 or 212.5)
Update (~ 440pm pac time)
If you are going to bet the under, I recommend you take the 213 @ PEPPERMILL, as I think the average total is about to go to 211.5 (or lower).
Looney is active, and I think the line should hover around -2.5 to -3 for the Warriors, by game time.

My bets are:
note: bets with a *** next to them can be cancelled or amended (usually for "free") with the bookmaker i use.
***Raptors @ + 4.5: 1440 to win 1200
***Over 210.5: 110 to win 100 (was originally a bigger bet)
Warriors (win 3rd quarter) : 90 @ -120 (just a "for fun" wager)
Teaser 1 (Ties win, 4.5 point basketball and 5.5 point football):
600 @ +310
6/13/19 9:05pm 532 Golden State Warriors (1st 48 min&&& ) +4^^^ * vs Toronto Raptors
8/31/19 3:30pm College Football 181 South Carolina -2 * vs North Carolina
8/31/19 4:00pm College Football 188 Boston College +8 * vs Virginia Tech
8/31/19 7:30pm College Football 204 Pittsburgh U +8 * vs Virginia
Teaser 2 (also a Ties win, 4.5 point basketball and 5.5 point football):
1400 @ +101
6/13/19 9:05pm 532 Golden State Warriors (1st 48 min&&&) +4^^^ * vs Toronto Raptors
6/15/19 7:00pm Canadian Football 686 Calgary Stampeders -2½ * vs Ottawa Redblacks
&&&: this means that this part of the bet wins if the game ends in a regulation tie.
^^^: even though it is officially a 4.5 pt basketball teaser, I only just had the bet so I am getting the equivalent of 7 points (since it is "ties win") based on the current spread on offer, and the fact that it "passes through 0" doesn't matter, because of the above explanation (see &&&),
Update (~520 pm)
Looks like the average public line is going to go from 2.5 and could head towards 2 (70% chance),
So if you are a Raptors punter you should take the +3 available (MGM Mirage, according to Vegas insider)
If you are a Warriors punter you should wait, as I think the -2.5 (or better) will still be available by game time.
The total is hovering around 211.5-212 (average)
Note: this will be the last update until after the game.
About 2-22 left in the third, k t is out and getting checked
Update: He will not be back for this game

Update (after game)
All my bets for this game have won. just have to hope the other legs in my teaser bet, get up too.
But what if Spike Lee attacked Reggie Miller?
In all seriousness, we kind of saw what is being argued about here about 15 years ago at the Malice at the Palace. In the fracas Ron Artest went after a white fan like 7 to 10 rows up in the stands who had absolutely zero to do with what actually happened. Artest got a year suspension, I personally think he should have been thrown out of the league
This is why Players shouldn't be allowed to go up the stands and hit/threaten people. This isn't the first time a Celebrity had some jerk fan/hater do something wrong to them and ended up hitting/threatening the wrong person who was completely innocent.
He won’t have any trouble getting a max deal. He might not be ready for opening night next year but he will be back. He might not be explosive anymore but he’s so talented with an amazing jumper that he doesn’t necessarily need to be explosive to be great.
He got the max. I think it will turn out to be a mistake. He does need to be ‘explosive’ to be great. Look at Cousins. He would not even be ranked in top 100 of NBA players now. He was a top multidimensional player before his Achilles. I’d bet Durant is not a top 50 player when he gets back.
