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

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
