NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Orlando Magic at Boston Celtics

Orlando at Boston -8 O/U 205.5
Recommendation: Boston


This is a tale of two teams headed in opposite directions right now.  On January 1st, the Magic had a one game lead over the Celtics in the Eastern Conference Playoff race, sitting in fifth place in the East.  Since that time, Orlando has gone into a 1-11 SU, 2-10 ATS tailspin, falling into a tie at #12 in the East.  Meanwhile, the Celtics have won four straight and seven of their last nine, a surging team here in January.

Things have gone from bad to worse for the Magic of late, a team finding ways to lose.  They dropped back-2-back overtime games, then blew a 16 point lead and watched a one point deficit turn into a seven point final margin of defeat in the final 15 seconds at Milwaukee on Tuesday.

The quotes coming out of the Orlando locker room during this skid have been universally negative, with players and staff appearing to prod each other through the media.  Tobias Harris, following a crushing OT defeat at home to Charlotte last weekend: "In difficult times you have to fight your way through and you've got to come with a positive attitude Read more

NBA Handicapping: Brutal schedule likely to prolong Orlando's current misery

01.29.2016     07:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a rough stretch for the Orlando Magic who have lost 11 of their last 12 (2-10 ATS) including three in overtime. As of right now, it's hardly a death sentence to be four games under .500 in the Eastern Conference but eight or nine games is a different story. Check out Orlando's upcoming schedule: at Boston, vs. Boston, at San Antonio, at Oklahoma City, vs. LA Clippers, vs. Atlanta, at Atlanta, vs. San Antonio, and vs. Dallas. Yikes!


“If anything, we might be too young at times, which obviously produces inconsistent play,” Hennigan said. “So the blame for that lands squarely on my shoulders, and maybe I haven’t stabilized the roster well enough to help support both our players and our coaches as we’re continuing to build. So these are questions I ask myself on a daily and nightly basis.”

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Houston Rockets at New Orleans Pelicans

Houston +4.5 at New Orleans O/U 216
Recommendation: Houston


A strong 65-46 second half by Houston catapulted them to a much needed home victory over division rival Dallas. Despite the absence of starting C Dwight Howard, Houston was able to out-rebound the Mavs 40-36 and they are now 2-0 since his back injury sidelined him. In those two victories over Milwaukee and Dallas, the Rockets launched 88 three pointers going 15-44 in each contest. New Orleans currently allows opponents to hit 36.5% of their threes which ranks ranks 22nd in the NBA and doesn’t bode well for them tonight. Houston has also had a couple of key additions to their lineup which have helped greatly during Howard’s absence. First off the return from injury of starting PG Patrick Beverly was very impactful in yesterday’s game as he held Mavs PG Derron Williams to just 1-of-9 FG shooting and 4 points. His defensive presence tonight figures to make things tough for Pelicans PG Norris Cole (starting due to the season ending injury to Eric Gordon) and his backup Jrue Holiday. Matchups continue to be tough for New Orleans in the backcourt as the shaky knee of Tyreke Evans Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors

Miami at Toronto -11 O/U 186
Recommendation: Toronto


The Miami Heat are in a world of hurt right now, a bet-against team in any reasonable price range.  My clients and I cashed an easy winner betting against Miami twice already this week, two blowout losses where they trailed from the opening tip.  And frankly, there’s little reason to expect a better effort as they travel to Toronto tonight.

The Heat are in the midst of a truly brutal scheduling stretch, as tough as any team will face all year.  They’re playing a stretch of 18 consecutive games with a court change, a nightmarish situation for a very banged up team that desperately needs some practice time that they’re not going to get anytime soon.

And "very banged up" doesn’t even accurately describe Eric Spoelstra’s squad right now.  ‘Decimated with injuries’ might be superior phraseology.  The Heat won’t have starting center Hassan Whiteside tonight, dealing with hip and knee injuries.  They won’t have starting guard Dwayne Wade either, out with a lingering shoulder injury.  Read more

NBA Handicapping: Pacers claim to have practiced defense after historically bad effort

01.19.2016     07:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's hard to allow 247 points in regulation in back-to-back games, especially when neither opponent had Golden State printed on its jersey. That's the situation for Indiana as they limp into tonight's road game at Phoenix having allowed 118 to Washington and 129 last time out to Denver. This isn't the first time the Pacers stank up the joint defensively and called for a bounceback effort. Back in mid-December, they coughed up 131 in a loss to Warriors and then took down Miami 96-83 next time out. Of course the game following that, Indiana was blown out by Detroit, 118-96.


A day after describing his team’s defensive performance as “embarrassing,” Pacers coach Frank Vogel ran a “spirited” practice dedicated to that end of the floor.

“I thought we had better focus,” George said. “We were definitely tied

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Houston Rockets at Los Angeles Clippers

Houston at LA Clippers -6 O/U 208.5
Recomendation: Over


Skeptics are questioning the legitimacy of LA’s recent hot streak which has seen them rattle off an 11-1 straight up record and a 9-3 mark against the spread in their last 12 games. The Clippers were 11-0 su until their last game where they were beaten as a -4 point home favorite by Sacramento 110-103. During this 12-game span, LA has faced one team (Miami) with a winning record and only two teams that are in the league’s Top 15 offenses. Los Angeles has posted tremendous defensive numbers over the 12 game stretch allowing just 96.1 points per game but the schedule they’ve done it against is being questioned by some. Sacramento’s #3 ranked pint scoring offense scoring 110 against LA two nights ago adds to the argument. Of course in that game, the Clippers did not have defensive presence and rim protecting C DeAndre Jordan (pneumonia) and his status is questionable for tonight. In his place, ex-Kansas star Cole Aldrich has gotten the bulk of the minutes and the defensive drop off is dramatic. Tonight LA plays the explosive Houston Rockets and their defense will be severely Read more

NBA Handicapping: Another game, another lackluster effort by the Sacramento Kings

01.14.2016     08:14 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
You gotta love the Sacramento Kings. In the postgame presser following last night's 109-97 loss to New Orleans -- the Kings were laying as high as -8.6 before closing -6.5 -- the phrase "effort" was used like 40 times. When DeMarcus Cousins is calling you out for not playing hard you know it was a gold old fashion tank job. The Kings will have a chance for redemption with tonight's road tilt at Utah. Bettors have already hit the total down from 202 to as low as 200.


"Not giving multiple efforts, not playing out defensive schemes – effort. Effort." (When asked if it's a lead my example thing that he can set and get guys to follow) "I can take the blame; I did a poor job of not speaking up in the beginning. I can take the blame for that – I should've spoken up in the beginning, and I didn't."

"I honestly can't tell you. Effort – that's all it is, effort." (On how frustrating it is when they've talked so much about not having letdowns like this) "It's been our problem all year. We're all talk right

NBA Handicapping: LA Clippers winning games and covering numbers without Griffin

01.13.2016     09:18 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Interesting article on why the Los Angeles Clippers are performing better without the services of Blake Griffin who has been out with an injured quad. Sans Griffin, the Clippers are 7-0 SU and 6-1 ATS. They also went a respectable 9-6 SU/ATS when he missed time last season with an elbow injury. From a betting perspective, logic points us towards extra value with the markets perhaps overestimating Griffin's true worth. Then there's the "step up" mentality of having your star player out and needing to perform at a higher level to offset the loss. As pointed out in the article, LA's success without Griffin was also likely aided by the fact that that multiple opponents were without the services of key players. In the meantime, Griffin remains out and DeAndre Jordan is questionable with the flu for tonight's game against Miami. The Heat though may be without Hassan Whiteside who is questionable with a bum knee.

NBA Gambling News: Brooklyn Nets can head coach Lionel Hollins

01.11.2016     08:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Brooklyn Nets have reportedly fired head coach Lionel Hollins and "reassigned" GM Billy King. Assistant Tony Brown will serve as interim head coach. The Nets' one redeeming quality this season has been its ability to be really bad but not totally inept as their straight record sits 10-27 but also a very respectable 20-17 against the spread. They're currently +14.5 home underdogs to San Antonio tonight.


"It's clear from our current state of affairs that we need new leadership," owner Mikhail Prokhorov said in a statement. "With the right basketball management and coach in place, we are going to create a winning culture and identity and give Brooklyn a team that it can be proud of and enjoy watching."
