We know when it comes to betting and sports, mostly guys, we’re pretty constant with it. You got the regular bets and the proffesional bets. I know I betted on that Cavaliers and Magic series and lost a lot of money. But there is proffesional betting too. Legal and illegal. Take the Tim Donaghy case for example. He  betted on games he officiated in, but he wasn’t the only one invoved. He told FBI agents that other refs were not giving  star players technical fouls so that it wouldn’t hurt ticket sales and tv ratings. Also, refs ignored flagrant fouls and made up fouls. The team that was favored by the refs won the game. This was the cause of the outcomes in a lot of game 7 series in the playoffs from 2000 to 2004. Hopefully this doesn’t happen again for basketball or any professional sport..It kills the game.
