NBA Gambling: Cleveland Cavaliers take early money for Game 1 and series

05.28.2015     01:23 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Bettors will have to wait a week to see Game 1 of the NBA Finals but in the meantime they've already taken a crack at both the opening game and series.

Following Golden State's Game 5 win over Houston, CRIS opened the Warriors -6 with a total of 204. There's been a fair amount of action on Cleveland with most offshore sportsbooks down to -5.5. The total was bet down to 203.5/203.

The Cavaliers have also taken early money for the series with Golden State opening -245 (Cleveland +205) and the line now in the -225/+190 range.

The series starts next Thursday with a 2-2-1-1-1 best of seven format.

NBA Gambling: Bettors can get a jump on Golden State-Cleveland finals

05.27.2015     08:57 AM     Printer Friendly 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

05.22.2015     09:57 AM     Printer Friendly 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 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

05.18.2015     10:10 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers 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

05.18.2015     09:00 AM     Printer Friendly 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

05.13.2015     07:50 AM     Printer Friendly 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."
