NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Chicago Bulls

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Denver -9.5 at Chicago O/U 217.5
Recommendation: Denver

The Denver Nuggets have struggled to bring their A-game against weaker foes all year. Already on this 0-2 road trip, Mike Malone’s squad has lost at Memphis, allowing the Grizzlies to snap their 19 game losing streak in the process. The Nuggets have also lost SU at Dallas, at home to Phoenix at home to Atlanta and at Sacramento since the calendar turned to 2018; all as bigger favorites against lottery bound competition.

So what makes tonight’s game different? Two things. First, it’s legitimately ‘circle-the-wagons’ time for this road favorite, as they’ve fallen two games out of the #8 seed in the West in a tight playoff chase. Despite being out of the playoffs if they started today, Denver is only 4 games in the loss column away from hosting a first round series! They are in Game 3 of a seven game road trip – their next home game won’t be until April. Coach Malone, talking about tonight’s game: “Effort, fight, urgency ... cannot be words that we're talking about.” Expect a focused effort from the Nuggets Read more

NBA Gambling News: Chicago Bulls claim hilarious lineups based on player rest not taking

03.07.2018     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Looks like the NBA reached out to the Chicago Bulls about some of the painfully obvious tank-esque lineups they've been using. The Bulls countered by saying some of their vets need some rest. Since the All-Star break, the Bulls are 1-5 SU, 2-4 ATS. Their lone win came against fellow tankee, Dallas.


"After the All-Star break, we had communication with the league office about Robin and Justin's roles," said Bulls executive vice president John Paxson. "After healthy dialogue, the league determined that their situations fall into the 'player rest' policy. We respect the communication and cooperative dialogue with the league and will adhere to their recommendations going forward."

NBA Betting: Chicago Bulls tank? Chicago Bulls tank!

We're not sure if this qualifies as a full-fledged tank job but it's definitely worth rewatching how the Chicago Bulls lost to the Philadelphia 76ers last night. At least they covered!

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Celtics at Chicago Bulls

Boston -3 at Chicago O/U 203.5
Recommendation: Boston

Even after the line move towards the Celtics in early betting action, I’m still expecting Boston to close out this series with a Game 6 victory tonight. The results don’t lie. The Bulls covered the spread in Games 1 and 2 by 10.5 points and 21.5 points, winning outright as underdogs both times.

Then point guard Rajon Rondo broke his thumb, forced to sit out. The Bulls hung 106 and 111 points in the first two games with Rondo distributing the basketball extremely effectively, as Chicago notched 50 assists in those two ballgames. They notched only 31 combined assists in Games 3 and 4 with Jerian Grant, then Isaiah Canaan starting at point guard.

Grant was benched completely by Game 5. Canaan was a DNP-coaches decision 29 times in the regular season, and he played more than 20 minutes of gametime only once since December. Yet the last two games, Canaan has played more than 70 minutes of floor time. He has a grand total of three assists in those 70+ minutes.

Weak point guard play is a problem at any time of the year. When it comes to Read more

NBA Playoff Betting News: Boston Celtics continue to take money for Game 6

04.28.2017     09:50 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Up 81-79 heading into the fourth quarter in Boston, the Chicago Bulls were very live to pick up a very important road win and take a 3-2 series lead. But things didn't go well as the Celtics outscored the Bulls 29-16 to not only win but also cover -7.5. Perhaps that deflating loss has something to do with the steady stream of Boston money for tonight's Game 6. The Bulls opened pick 'em at CRIS and -1ev at Pinnacle. But the Celtics climbed to -2.5 and were again hit hard this morning with the line now as high as -3-115.

NBA Betting Alert: Rondo out, Celtics now road chalk

04.21.2017     08:53 AM     Printer Friendly
Chicago's Rajon Rondo is out indefinitely with a broken thumb which leaves the Bulls in a precarious position of not having a viable point guard. Rondo was a key part of the Bulls' two road victories including a near triple-double in Game 2. The betting markets reacted to the announcement by betting Boston up from +1 to -1.5.

NBA Handicapping: Players resting and big line moves highlight final day of regular season

04.12.2017     11:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's the final day of the NBA regular season and while nearly every playoff seed and matchup has been determined the eighth seed in the Eastern Conference is still up go grabs. Chicago, who plays host to Brooklyn, own the tiebreaker over Miami, who plays host to Washington. Unlike most lottery teams, the Nets haven't been in tank mode due to their draft pick being sent elsewhere. However, they decided tonight would be a good opportunity to rest some of their key players. This pushed the Bulls up from -9 to -14.5 favorites. The Wizards are sitting a bunch of guys as well but even if the Heat win (-8.5 to -11.5), a Bulls victory means Miami is out. Indiana sits a game ahead of both Chicago and Miami and should have any easy go of it against an Atlanta squad that is resting its starters. The Pacers were bet up from -7.5 to -14.5.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Bulls at Golden State Warriors

Chicago +14 at Golden State O/U 223.5
Recommendation: Chicago


Betting the Warriors off a rare loss was a real moneymaker last year.  That has not been the case here in 2016-17.  Golden State is coming off their eighth loss of the season, at Sacramento last weekend. Following their first seven defeats, the Warriors won their next game by 8, 10, 29, 8, 10, 11 and 10 points.

Note the lack of big blowouts – only once in those seven contests did the Warriors win by enough of a margin to cover tonight’s spread.  And the Warriors 3-4 ATS mark in those contests must come with an asterisk. Two of the three pointspread covers came when Golden State was -9.5 in games they won by exactly ten points.  And with Draymond Green dealing with a bum knee while Zaza Pachulia and David West are both out, this Warriors front court rotation is awfully thin right now.

My clients and I cashed a pair of Big Ticket winners with the Bulls last week, in their blowout win at OKC and their wire-to-wire spread covering loss in OT at Houston.   And there’s every reason to think that the Bulls remain a bet-on Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Heat at Chicago Bulls

Miami +7.5 at Chicago O/U 204
Recommendation: Miami


It’s not hard to make a case for betting against the Chicago Bulls tonight; a team who’s internal chemistry has clearly fallen off a cliff in recent weeks.  The Bulls late game meltdown against Atlanta on Wednesday – a true ‘Moose’ for their pointspread backers, as the Hawks closed out the game on a 19-4 run over the last three minutes, erasing a ten point deficit in the process – made a bad situation worse.

Dwayne Wade ripped into his teammates following the loss: “Everyone don’t care enough…I don't know how you fix it. It just doesn't mean enough for guys around here to want to win ball games. It pisses me off. Games are supposed to hurt. You're not supposed to sleep. You're not supposed to want to talk to anybody. I don't know if that is in guys in this locker room.”

So did Jimmy Butler:  “Something is wrong. I want to play with guys who care, guys who play hard, who want to do well for this organization, who want to do whatever it takes to win.”
Then Rajon Rondo went off on his teammates on Read more
