NBA Handicapping: Playoff berths and seeds still up for grabs

04.09.2018     08:58 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot going on the final three days of the NBA regular season. The Eastern Conference “eight” have been determined though seeding, specifically six through eight, has yet to be determined. The Western Conference is a total cluster: five teams who have yet to clinch are vying for the final four seeds. Here’s a quick look at tonight’s matchups.

Toronto -4 at Detroit - The Raptors have the top seed in the Eastern Conference locked up. The Pistons, who have quietly covered 9 of 11, have been eliminated from playoff contention. It showed in Sunday's loss to Memphis; the Grizzlies hung 30 or more in all four quarters en route to a 130-117 win.

Cleveland -12.5 at New York - The Cavs trail the 76ers by a game but if they beat the Knicks, they would win the Central and thus earn the third seed.

Chicago at Brooklyn -7.5 - Playing for exercise.

Oklahoma City -3.5 at Miami - The Heat are in but could finished sixth, seventh, or eighth. The Thunder need to win one of their last two games to clinch a berth. Note that the game opened a pick 'em.

Memphis at Minnesota -15.5 - The Timberwolves are in the middle of the messy Read more

NBA Gambling: Phoenix Suns in the driver's sear to win Tank-a-Thon

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The race for last is winding down with a little over a week to go in the NBA regular season. The Phoenix Suns, on the strength of a 1-18 SU record since the All-Star break, have a 2.5-game "lead" over the Memphis Grizzlies who for whatever reason decided to win two of their last four. Dallas and Sacramento actually have winning spread records while Chicago is 5-1 SU/ATS against fellow tankers.

Team (overall record) SU/ATS records post-All-Star Break; SU/ATS vs. fellow tankers
1. Phoenix (19-59) 1-18/8-11; 1-2, 3-0
2. Memphis (21-56) 3-18/8-13; 0-5/0-5
3. Atlanta (22-55) 4-14/5-12-1; 2-2, 1-3
4. Orlando (22-54) 4-15/7-12; 2-4, 1-5
5. Dallas (23-54) 5-14/10-9; 3-1, 3-1
6. Sacramento (25-53) 7-14/12-9; 3-1, 3-1
7. Chicago (26-51) 6-14/10-10; 5-1/5-1
8. New York (27-50) 4-14/8-10; 2-2/2-2

Overall: 34-121 SU, 68-86-1 ATS as of 4/2

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: New Jersey Devils at San Jose Sharks

New Jersey +140 at San Jose O/U 5.5
Recommendation: New Jersey

The New Jersey Devils have been playing some solid hockey on their current road trip. They’ve won three of their first four games on this current road swing and they beat three probable playoff teams in the process notching road victories at Nashville, Vegas and Los Angeles. They were a bit worn down in a 4-2 loss to Anaheim on Sunday night playing the second night of back-to-back games but the Devils have been getting better contributions offensively from players other than Taylor Hall during their recent run while the goaltending for them on most nights from Keith Kinkaid has been really good. San Jose is commanding a significant price tag here laying -160 at home and they have won 4 games in a row entering this contest but the Sharks have done that despite some key injuries on their team. Joe Thornton is out indefinitely with a knee injury, Melker Karlsson and Joonas Donskoi are both banged up and not a sure thing to play tonight and one of their most important defensemen Marc-Edouard Vlasic departed San Jose’s last game with a chest injury and is Read more

NCAA Tournament Free Betting Pick: Georgia State Panthers vs. Cincinnati Bearcats

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Georgia State +14 vs. Cincinnati O/U 130
Recommendation: Georgia State

Georgia State is a deep, veteran unit that goes with an eight-man rotation which features six upperclassmen. They have multiple scoring threats led by guard D’Marcus Simonds (1st team All-Sun Belt, 21.1 ppg). GSU is 29th nationally in 3-point efficiency with four players who shoot 38% or better and all have at least 107 attempts. Ron Hunter’s squad is also ninth nationally in 2-point FG% defense (43.9%), 39th in steal percentage and despite their lack of height, 13th in shot blocking percentage. Add to those assets their solid turnover percentage rankings on each end of the floor (offensively 61st, defensively 44th) and you have a pretty strong blueprint for tournament format success. There are however a pair of drawbacks in this particular matchup that are glaring and difficult to overcome. The first is strength of schedule where Cincinnati holds a significant edge having played the 89th toughest as opposed to GSU’s 228th which saw them play one NCAA Tournament team (home 71-68 win vs. Montana). That gap is concerning in itself Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: UNC Asheville at USC Trojans

UNC Asheville +16.5 at USC O/U 152
Recommendation: UNC Asheville

Sometimes, power ratings, pointspreads, and matchups don't mean a thing in these secondary tournaments. Two of the biggest factors come down to travel and motivation. Both factors are pulling against one another in tonight's UNC-Asheville-USC matchup. The Bulldogs, who won the Big South regular season, will make the cross country trek to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the Trojans were arguably the most deserving team to not get into the NCAA Tournament and are justifiably upset.

“The feeling is the same,’ Enfield said of frustration held over from Sunday’s bracket reveal. “It doesn’t go away in a day. Because we should be in the NCAA Tournament. We deserve to be, and we’re one of the best at-large teams out there.”

Enfield went as far as to say he may sit players who are not 100 percent healthy and/or could risk injury and thus damage their stock as a pro prospect. And by all accounts, if it was up to Enfield and his players, they would have passed on the NIT bid. USC is talented enough to beat Asheville Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Colorado Buffaloes vs. Arizona State Sun Devils

Colorado +7 vs. Arizona State O/U 147
Recommendation: Colorado

Pretty interesting to see 11-7 Stanford laying -9 vs. 2-16 California and then 8-10 Arizona State laying -7 vs. 8-10 Colorado. The Sun Devils' statistical profile (+0.02 points per possession) within the PAC-12 is a tad stronger than 8-10. And certainly stronger than that of Colorado (-0.05 ppp). But in watching both squads and looking at this matchup through the lense of a "one game" scenario, I have a difficult time seeing seven points worth of difference. The Buffaloes won the first meeting in Boulder, 90-81 in overtime. In the second meeting, ASU returned the favor with an 80-66 win in Tempe. It should be noted that Colorado led that game with 10 minutes to go but simply wore down; likely a result from playing the dreaded second game of a Thursday-Saturday PAC-12 road trip. Overall, Arizona State's power rating is still boosted by one of the best non-conference showings in the country thanks to wins over Xavier and Kansas. But over the course of an 18-game conference slate, the Sun Devils were far from dominant. Of their eight victories, three came against bottom Read more

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Colorado Avalanche at Chicago Blackhawks

Colorado +115 at Chicago O/U 6
Recommendation: Colorado

The Chicago Blackhawks are not the better of these two teams nor are they in a quality scheduling spot for this matchup against the Colorado Avalanche and that has me backing the road underdog in this matchup. Colorado is in a battle for one of the two Wildcard playoff spots in the Western Conference and are in need of victories at this stage of the season. The Avalanche have won three of their last four games and the only loss came to the defending Western Conference champs Nashville 4-3 in OT on Sunday afternoon. Nathan MacKinnon is in the midst of a career season with the Colorado Avalanche. MacKinnon has put up six goals and six assists during his five game point streak to boost his NHL best individual scoring average to 1.35 points per game. He’s already set career highs in goals and points and this Colorado team pretty much goes as their star Nathan MacKinnon does who forms a dynamic top line alongside Mikko Rantanen and captain Gabriel Landeskog. Colorado has also received some solid secondary scoring contributions from Matt Nieto who has goals in three Read more
