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

NBA Gambling Update: Bulls' situation somehow goes from bad to worse

01.27.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

This is high comedy. Earlier this week, Chicago's Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade flat out shit on their teammates for not putting forth the proper amount of effort. Enter Rajon Rondo who felt the need to join in on the shitting by tossing said shit right back at Butler and Wade. But perhaps the most telling part of the situation is that in both ESPN articles there is not one single quote or even mention about head coach Fred Hoiberg. Where Hoiberg is mentioned in another article that asks whether or not Butler “big leagued” him during a timeout. Sacramento who?


"My vets would never go to the media. They would come to the team. ... My goal is to pass what I learned along. The young guys work. They show up. They don't

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls not in a good place right now

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Move over New York Knicks, there's a new dumpster fire in town. Here we have Chicago's Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade basically calling the entire team soft following last night's home loss to Atlanta. The Bulls face Miami and Philadelphia at home before embarking on a six-game west coast road trip.


"M-----f-----s just got to care if we win or lose," Butler said. "At the end of the day, do whatever it takes to help the team win. You play your role to the tee. Be a star in your role, man. That's how you win in this league, man. You have to embrace what this team, what this organization needs for you to do on either end of the floor. On top of everything else, just play every possession like it's your last. We don't play hard all the time. It's very disappointing whenever we don't play hard."

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Pistons at Chicago Bulls

Detroit at Chicago -2.5 O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Chicago


The Bulls aren’t likely to have Derrick Rose or Taj Gibson available tonight for their showdown with the Pistons.  That’s good news for Bulls bettors, not bad!  Without Rose in the lineup, this pointspread gets deflated into a ‘SU win should equal a pointspread cover’ range.  And the Bulls have certainly proven adept this season at cashing winning bets without one of their key players on the floor.

And Fred Hoiberg’s squad has looked squarely into the depths of the abyss and come out swinging.  Chicago suffered a four game skid at the wrong time, falling 2.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the East, with only nine games remaining.  The Bulls gut check moment came against the Pacers on Tuesday, when they held Indiana scoreless over the last 3+ minutes of gametime and won on a Jimmy Butler jumper with 3.7 seconds left.   They followed that up by rallying from 14 down late in the 3rd quarter to beat Houston on Thursday.

Coach Hoiberg: “I think the biggest thing is those guys went out there and played Read more

NBA Handicapping: Someone has to cover tonight's Bulls-Rockets game

03.31.2016     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two games behind Indiana for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference, the Chicago Bulls have been nothing short of a disaster since the calendar flipped. Both the offense and defense have rapidly declined and it's resulted in one of the worst spread records (31-43 ATS) in the league. Bettors should probably be asking the question: Who wants to win less tonight? The Bulls or Rockets?


"Believe it or not, we work a lot more on defense than on offense," Hoiberg said last week. "There's no question about that. Early in the season, we were a very good defensive team. All the way up until about Jan. 1 and then our numbers completely flipped."

"At some point, we stopped giving the importance that the defense deserves," Gasol said. "We started relying too much on our offense and let our offensive performance affect our defensive effort. It's not unreasonable to expect the same type of effort. It's effort and communication."

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls continue to be a mess defensively

03.02.2016     08:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Whoa. Did you know the Chicago Bulls have allowed 100+ points in 14 straight games -- technically 13 out their last 14 if you count Utah's 93 in regulation. Last night was a gem of a performance as Miami shot 67% from the floor en route to a 129-111 win. During this span of defensive ineptitude, the Bulls are 4-10 SU and 5-9 ATS. They are also currently a half game out of the Eastern Conference playoffs -- but only two games out of the fifth seed. Second night of back-to-backs tonight as the Bulls are +4 at Orlando.


"We seem to play harder defensively in our practices," Hoiberg said. "And we got to carry that over into the games. Again, we seem to get deflated when the adversity hits us, when things go well for the other team. For whatever reason we don't get tougher during those stretches and that's what you have to do when that adversity hits."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA Eastern Conference second half preview

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I wrote about what I’m expecting from the Western Conference in the eight week stretch between the end of the All-Star Break and the beginning of the playoffs.  This week, I’m going to focus on the East, before my attention turns to March Madness for the next few Wiseguy Reports.

There’s no question that the Eastern Conference is finally getting better after nearly two decades of playing second fiddle to the West.  Since Michael Jordan (and everybody else) left the Bulls following their sixth title in 1998, the Eastern Conference has only won five championships, something the Lakers and Spurs have each done five times by themselves during that span!  Detroit won in 2004, Miami won in 2006, 2012 and 2013 and Boston won in 2008.

And from all indications in the betting markets, the East isn’t very likely to win a title this year either.  Cleveland is the only team in the East priced at less than 15-1 to reach the Read more

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls continue to underachieve against the spread

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot going on with the Chicago Bulls these days. First there were reports of Jimmy Butler calling out first-year head coach Fred Hoiberg. Now there's talk Butler and Derrick Rose are having a difficult time coexisting. The team’s play on the court has been far from spectacular as the Bulls bookended a recent four-game winning streak with three-game and 2-4 skids. Interesting that in last night's win and cover over Toronto, Rose had one of his better games of the season (20 points, 3-of-5 3-pointers) whereas Butler finished 2-of-7 from the floor with five points. Overall, Chicago sits a respectable 17-12 but league-worst 11-18 ATS. They play host to Indiana tomorrow night.
