NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Oklahoma City +1 at Portland O/U 219.5
Recommendation: Oklahoma City


There’s no comparison between the Thunder and the Trail Blazers right now, making this short pointspread look very attractive to this bettor! Portland is in a world of hurt.  The Blazers are returning home off a losing road trip that culminated in another fourth quarter turnover fueled meltdown and subsequent OT loss at Detroit. They haven’t won a home game since January, losing each of their last three games on this floor both SU and ATS.  And the quotes coming out of Terry Stotts locker room aren’t exactly reeking with confidence these days.

Damian Lillard: “We're frustrated. We played a good game outside of turnovers. We feel like we should have won the game. We should be happy going on this flight (to Portland) with a 'W' and a 2-1 trip, but we're not.  That's disappointing.”  Portland will be hard pressed to match their 52% shooting effort that they put up against the Pistons.  And the Blazers weakness in the paint is a real problem against a team like OKC.

Don’t confuse the Thunder in March from the Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets at Sacramento Kings

Charlotte at Sacramento +4 O/U 207.5
Recommendation: Sacramento


The Kings traded DeMarcus Cousins at the trading deadline, a trade that was widely criticized by every talking head in the world, including myself.  The betting markets weren’t sleeping on this trade!

Suddenly a Kings team that was power rated as a middle of the pack squad was downgraded to a team that was every bit as bad as the worst team in the NBA, the 9-48 Nets.   That’s why the Kings were seven point home underdogs against Denver on Thursday – a game they won by 16.  But the markets didn’t believe what they saw in that game, explaining why they are four point home underdogs against Charlotte today…with the early money rolling in on the Hornets!

First, Sacramento is not as bad as the markets seem to think they are.  The Cousins distraction is gone.  They’ve got a veteran backcourt duo in Darrin Collison and Ty Lawson – not rookies or scrubs handling the basketball.  The Kosta Koufos/Willie Cauley-Stein duo combined for 37 points, 16 rebounds and 3 blocks in that game, filling Cousins Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Pistons at Charlotte Hornets

Detroit at Charlotte -5 O/U 202
Recommendation: Charlotte


Let me start with the basic concept here.  Yes, Detroit got their starting point guard Reggie Jackson back on the floor for their last two games after Jackson missed the first six weeks of the season due to injury.  But while getting Jackson back running the point is a good thing for Stan Van Gundy’s squad in the long term, in the short term it does NOT make them a better squad.  For at least the next few games, while Jackson gets re-acclimated with his teammates, the Pistons base power rating number must be lowered, not raised.  Yet the markets have moved in the opposite direction.

Van Gundy, following Jackson’s first game back on the floor, a loss to Orlando: “We were terrible defensively, terrible. We didn’t put enough into it to win the game. They deserved to win. I think most nights we bring a decent effort. But we’ve been just too up and down defensively. We looked really slow tonight.”

Jackson’s quote: “It's going to take some time to get acclimated with my teammates again, but (the knee) felt good. I Read more

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 Gambling: Add the Knicks to the list of teams that need to lose

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We know the Heat and 76ers don't want to win. Well, New York should have the same mindset but in typical Knicks fashion, they enter tonight's game on a two-game winning streak. Tonight's opponent, the Detroit Pistons, were bet up from -5.5 to -9.


At 17-64, the Knicks now have leapfrogged Minnesota (16-65) out of the NBA basement, and they still have a chance to tie Philadelphia (18-63) with a win Wednesday night against eliminated Detroit (31-50). The Timberwolves and Sixers also have home finales on Wednesday against Oklahoma City and Miami, respectively.

Detroit at Chicago -9 O/U 197
Recommendation: Chicago


I expect a bounce back effort from the Chicago Bulls following a 95-91 defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. There is a game at Cleveland on deck which is a mild concern but I think you will get the requisite focus and intensity from the home favorite tonight especially after getting worked over by the Pistons 107-91 two weeks ago. It’s a game Tom Thibodeau remembers: "You can't let your guard down in this league," coach Tom Thibodeau said after Chicago blew a 19-point lead and was outscored 54-19 in the final 19 minutes of a 107-91 defeat to the Pistons on March 21. The Pistons deserve credit as they have shown a lot of fight despite being all but eliminated from the playoff race as they currently sit five games out of the eighth and final spot. But Wednesday’s 102-78 loss to Charlotte may have been the “tap out” on the season as this squad looks to be a prime “bet against” target. Detroit is also banged up with backup point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who performed well in the absence of injured Brandon Jennings, listed as doubtful for Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Betting against the Washington Wizards

02.23.2015     11:45 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I highlighted a pair of NBA teams that had all the makings of being strong bet-on squads over the final two months of the regular season.  Those two teams – the Indiana Pacers and the Oklahoma City Thunder – combined to go 5-0 SU and 5-0 ATS in their first five games coming out of the All Star break.  I don’t think either one of those squads has even approached their peak yet, still offering tremendous bet-on potential moving forward.  In particular, OKC even without Durant in the lineup is capable of very big things, both SU and ATS.

This week I’m going to look at a single team on the other end of the spectrum – a dead nuts bet-against squad over the final two months of the campaign.  With sincere apologies to the Denver Nuggets, my #1 fade team in the NBA right now is the Washington Wizards.  While Denver is a lottery team that is being priced like a lottery team, Washington is still being priced as a strong playoff contender in the Read more

NBA Handicapping: After shoring up offense, Pistons take step back defensively

02.09.2015     02:13 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on Detroit's recent defensive woes. The Pistons have taken on a number of identities this season. In November, when they couldn't win a game to save their lives, they were primarily a low scoring "under" team. They around mid-December, they decided to pick up the pace and open up the offense. But with that came a decline defensively, particularly of late.


"We've been trying to save their energy, but we didn't use any last night anyway, so we saved it last night, so we should have been able to go today," Van Gundy said after a short practice today. "We needed to get back into some better habits."

"Now over the last 10 games, we're 28th defensively, we're still seventh offensively so we lose (Brandon Jennings to Achilles injury), play 10 games without him, you stay seventh in offensive efficiency, that's pretty good, you should be winning more games, but our defense has dropped off the charts," Van Gundy said. "We got to try to get it back, we haven't had enough practice time.

Like the NFL, the NBA likes to do the London thing with the New York Knicks taking on the Milwaukee Bucks this afternoon (Noon PT) at the O2 Arena. And the fans are going to be treated to the return of both Carmelo Anthony and Amare Stoudemire. Riveting stuff. Three of the four regular season games in O2 Arena (20,0000 capacity) went over the total.

NBA Regular Season Games at London's O2 Arena
2013: Brooklyn Nets 127, Atlanta Hawks 110
2013: New York Knicks 102, Detroit Pistons 87
2011: New Jersey Nets 137, Toronto Raptors 136 (3 OT)

Atlanta at Detroit +3
Recommendation: Detroit


Two of the hottest teams in the NBA square off tonight in the Motor City. Atlanta is an incredible 20-2 SU in its last 22 games which has them in first place in the Eastern Conference while Detroit is on a 7-0 streak since getting rid of the disrupter, Josh Smith. My clients and I have cashed five straight winners with the Detroit Pistons who are most assuredly a team to ride at the moment while the betting markets remain slow to adjust to the difference in energy and execution. Detroit has seen a major surge in its offense during that stretch with much better ball movement and more balanced scoring. They are playing more as a team right now and it is a direct correlation to their winning streak. Point guard Brandon Jennings has finally assumed the team leader role for and is currently playing like one averaging 22.8 points in Detroit’s last four games and the Pistons are finally getting their two talented big men Greg Monroe and Andre Drummond to elevate their play as both are averaging double doubles during the winning streak. Atlanta has put together a truly outstanding run as well and they Read more
