SportsMemo.com blog entry.
With the Cleveland Cavaliers having already punched their ticket to the NBA Finals and the Golden State Warriors a win away, a few sportsbooks are getting a jump on the inevitable matchup. As of Wednesday morning, BetOnline has the Warriors as -6 home favorites for Game 1 and a -265 series favorite. 5Dimes has a slight cheaper price of -250. If for some miracle of a chance the Houston Rockets come back to beat Golden State, the Cavaliers would be -150 series favorites.

NBA Gambling: Atlanta Hawks bet up to -2.5 for tonight's Game 2

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Lot of action going on in the betting markets for tonight's Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals. After the Cavaliers won Game 1, Game 2 opened a pick 'em at CRIS. Pinnacle took immediate money on the Cavs as they jumped to -1.5. But since then, we've seen nothing but Atlanta money with the Hawks now favored by -2.5 at most offshore and Las Vegas sportsbooks. If you prefer the Cleveland side we recommend jumping in now as we expect some buy-back and the game to close Atlanta -1 to -2.

NBA Gambling Alert: Cleveland's Irving to suit up vs. Atlanta

05.20.2015     07:39 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Cleveland's Kyrie Irving (knee) is expected to start tonight's Eastern Conference Finals Game 1 matchup vs. Atlanta. The Hawks were as high as -1.5 favorites but money on the Cavs has the line down to a pick 'em at a few offshore sportsbooks.


"I would say just my spirits and mental confidence, just being able to actually feel both my feet underneath me, especially when I'm shooting, it feels amazing," Irving said. "You know, just a confidence of getting extra work in and just preparing with my teammates. I think that's the biggest thing I get out of it. I don't want to be on the sideline at all, especially preparing for a big stage like this. I want to be as close to 100 percent before Wednesday as I can be, so just doing the necessary things in order to do that."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Golden State Warriors primed to win NBA title

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
We’re down to the Final Four in the NBA Playoffs, but the path to a championship is crystal clear for only one team – the favorite (and favored for a reason) – Golden State.  Why do the Warriors have such a significant edge over the remaining field?  I’ve identified five reasons, breaking them down in detail in this week’s Wiseguy Report. 

The Warriors opened in the -850 range in their Western Conference Finals series against the Rockets, as big of a favorite as you’ll ever see in any third round playoff series.  The first reason to like Golden State’s chances to win the title is that their path just to reach the Finals is easier than any other team’s path based on the price alone. The Rockets are big underdogs in this series, and the Cavs are only in the -200 to -220 range against Atlanta in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Secondly, the Warriors are as healthy as any team remaining in the field.  The Cavs lost Kevin Love in the first round of the playoffs, then watched Kyrie Irving come up lame in the second round.  Atlanta lost designated LeBron-stopper Thabo Sefolosha to a season Read more

NBA Handicapping: Golden State not looking for a free throw fest

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you were paying attention you probably noticed there were a handful of free throw attempts during the Clippers-Rockets series. And by handful we mean 71.8 per game. Yes, most of the series was played at a fast pace but the Hack-A-Dude mentality played a fairly significant part in six of the seven games going over the total. But heading into the Western Conference Finals, it doesn't sound as if Golden State is going to play that game.


“Our team is all about rhythm and flow, and fouling stops the game. We want the game to go,” Kerr said. “We like our pace. That’s one of the reasons I haven’t done it. I won’t rule it out, but I wouldn’t expect a whole lot of it.

“We trust our defense. We think we can get stops. We want to get out and run and let the game flow, but it’s always there. You know, everything is different in the playoffs. You have to have every option at your disposal.”

NBA Handicapping: John Wall listed as questionable for Game 5

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to reports there's a small chance John Wall will play. With the series tied 2-2, Atlanta is an 8-point favorite for tonight's Game 5.


"He's moving in the right direction," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "The swelling is down again. Minimal swelling. He wanted to dribble the ball a little bit. Get the feel of it here."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: Wizards and Grizzlies have been postseason ATS darlings

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The 2014 NBA Playoffs were something of an exception to the rule, because there were no red hot pointspread runs to open the playoffs.  In most years, one or two teams stand out as postseason pointspread overachievers as the playoffs begin.  This year, for example, we’ve got two of them – the Memphis Grizzlies and the Washington Wizards, a combined 12-3 ATS through the first two rounds.  

I first really began paying serious attention to this phenomenon in 2009, when the Denver Nuggets opened up the playoffs on a 12-0 ATS run (11-0-1 ATS for some).  My clients and I were onboard for 11 of those 12 ATS victories; and I vowed to look for and find similar teams in the future – teams that hit their stride in late April after being widely overlooked by both bookmakers and bettors at the start of the postseason for whatever reason.

In 2010, Orlando swept their first two opponents in the playoffs, going 7-0-1 ATS in the process. The Phoenix Suns were also major moneymakers, going 8-2 ATS before running into the Lakers in the Western Conference Finals.  2011 saw the Dallas Mavericks open up the playoffs by cashing at a Read more

NBA Handicapping: Clippers getting bet despite Paul's questionable status

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
More injury related betting market moves as the Los Angeles Clippers have jumped from -2.5 to -4.5 for tonight's Game 3 matchup vs. Houston. Chris Paul (hamstring) practiced yesterday but is still listed as a game-time decision. The series is tied 1-1.


"My guess is it's going to come down to the eye and a feel test, the eye test by us and our trainer and then how he feels," Rivers said during a conference call with reporters. "I think with hamstrings, there really is no gauge, so I think that's what we're going to look for."
