NBA Betting News: Miami Heat vow to fix leaky defense

02.15.2017     09:57 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Throughout Miami's incredible 13-game winning streak, the offense averaged a well-oiled 109.3 ppg. The Heat though enter tonight having dropped two straight and while the offense continued to roll (109 and 107 points), the team's defense regressed. Philadelphia and Orlando hung 117 and 116 respectively and the challenge stiffens tonight as the Heat head to Houston.

 

“The last three games we’ve played against opponents who like to run,” guard Goran Dragic said. “…First of all, we need to get back on defense. We allowed too many points in transition. We just need to communicate. We’ve already proven that we can play good defense.”

NBA Bettng News: Charlotte Hornets promise win over Philadelphia 76ers

02.13.2017     09:24 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Unlike the Miami Heat, the Charlotte Hornets haven't been playing good basketball. They've lost nine of ten and covered exactly one pointspread during that span. Despite their struggles, Nicolas Batum went on record as saying he "guaranteed" victory tonight...at home, against the 20-34 Philadelphia 76ers, who are +8 underdogs. Not exactly an out-on-a-limb prediction. That said, the last time these two teams hooked up, the 76ers worked over the Hornets 102-93. 


"We're going to win this game on Monday. We will."

Are you guaranteeing it? I asked.

"Yeah," he said.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Indiana Pacers at Washington Wizards

Indiana at Washington -5.5 O/U 214.5
Recommendation: Washington


John Wall and Bradley Beal did a very classy thing following the conclusion of their 17-0 SU run at home, losing to the Cavs in overtime on Monday.  The Wizards backcourt duo put together an Instagram post thanking Washington’s fans and promising another win streak upcoming: “We just wanted to thank all of the Wizards fans or giving us one of the best homecourts in the NBA.  The atmosphere last night was amazing, the best since we’ve been in DC…we’re in this together so we’re counting on you to continue that tremendous support on Friday when we look to start a new streak…”

The Wizards weren’t sharp at Brooklyn following their loss to the Cavs; lucky to escape with an overtime win.  Head coach Scott Brooks: “Two things happened tonight: We gambled because we wanted to go for steals for layups, and we didn't box out. Brooklyn got offensive rebounds, and that was the game. That gave them a chance every time we had the lead by 10 to 12 points. ... We're glad we got the win, but we still have to Read more

NBA Gambling: Miami Heat quietly the hottest pointspread team in the league

02.08.2017     12:50 PM     Printer Friendly
It's that time of year where teams and their status in the betting markets are fairly established. Finding "changers" can lead to big profits. Under the cloak of darkness, the Miami Heat has reeled off 11 straight wins; 10 of which pointspread covers and one win/loss/push depending on what number you bet. It's about as under-the-radar streak as there's been in the NBA this season. Miami's upcoming schedule, while road heavy, isn't all that daunting with games against Milwaukee, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, and Orlando twice over the next three weeks. Despite the run, the market has moved against the Heat tonight with Milwaukee betup from a -2 home favorite to -4.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Bulls at Golden State Warriors

Chicago +14 at Golden State O/U 223.5
Recommendation: Chicago


Betting the Warriors off a rare loss was a real moneymaker last year.  That has not been the case here in 2016-17.  Golden State is coming off their eighth loss of the season, at Sacramento last weekend. Following their first seven defeats, the Warriors won their next game by 8, 10, 29, 8, 10, 11 and 10 points.

Note the lack of big blowouts – only once in those seven contests did the Warriors win by enough of a margin to cover tonight’s spread.  And the Warriors 3-4 ATS mark in those contests must come with an asterisk. Two of the three pointspread covers came when Golden State was -9.5 in games they won by exactly ten points.  And with Draymond Green dealing with a bum knee while Zaza Pachulia and David West are both out, this Warriors front court rotation is awfully thin right now.

My clients and I cashed a pair of Big Ticket winners with the Bulls last week, in their blowout win at OKC and their wire-to-wire spread covering loss in OT at Houston.   And there’s every reason to think that the Bulls remain a bet-on Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Lakers at Washington Wizards

Los Angeles at Washington -11 O/U 219.5
Recommendation: Washington


People are FINALLY starting to notice, and this streak will not go on forever.  But my clients and I have cashed in repeatedly backing the Washington Wizards throughout their 15-0 SU, 14-1 ATS run at home over the past eight weeks.  And there’s absolutely no reason to jump off this profit train until we’ve seen legitimate evidence that the markets have caught up with Washington’s improved play.  So far, the markets haven’t made the appropriate adjustments.

Washington wasn’t very good in November, opening the season with eight losses in their first ten games.  They weren’t much better in their next ten games, going 5-5 SU, including losses to the likes of Orlando and Miami.  On the heels of last year’s disappointing campaign, that was all the betting markets needed to see – Washington’s power rating was set in near bottom feeder range, a below average NBA team.

The results don’t lie.  Since that 7-13 SU and ATS start, Washington is 21-7 SU, 22-6 ATS – the best SU record in Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Lakers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Denver -2 at Los Angeles O/U 226
Recommendation: Over


Each side is without a significant post presence in this one as Denver starting C Nikola Jokic will miss his second straight game due to a strained hip and Lakers starting PF Julius Randle (pneumonia) will miss his second consecutive game. The holes in the Nuggets middle was filled by Jusuf Nurkic Saturday night versus Phoenix but depth behind him is non-existent. Nurkic only played 15:29 minutes as Denver went small for the majority of their 123-112 victory. Los Angeles inserted Tarik Black into their PF spot and he went 30:29 minutes in last Thursday’s 96-88 loss at Utah. The Lakers have more interior options than Denver does which will likely give them a significant “points in the paint” edge tonight. Also note that LA will have starting PG D’Angelo Russell back for this one after going through a full practice Monday and being cleared by team doctors for game action. How effective Russell will be is debatable but the Lakers are now again at full strength in the backcourt.     

Denver has been on an absolute roll the past nine games Read more

Miami +7.5 at Chicago O/U 204
Recommendation: Miami


It’s not hard to make a case for betting against the Chicago Bulls tonight; a team who’s internal chemistry has clearly fallen off a cliff in recent weeks.  The Bulls late game meltdown against Atlanta on Wednesday – a true ‘Moose’ for their pointspread backers, as the Hawks closed out the game on a 19-4 run over the last three minutes, erasing a ten point deficit in the process – made a bad situation worse.

Dwayne Wade ripped into his teammates following the loss: “Everyone don’t care enough…I don't know how you fix it. It just doesn't mean enough for guys around here to want to win ball games. It pisses me off. Games are supposed to hurt. You're not supposed to sleep. You're not supposed to want to talk to anybody. I don't know if that is in guys in this locker room.”

So did Jimmy Butler:  “Something is wrong. I want to play with guys who care, guys who play hard, who want to do well for this organization, who want to do whatever it takes to win.”
Then Rajon Rondo went off on his teammates on Read more

NBA Gambling Update: Bulls' situation somehow goes from bad to worse

01.27.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

This is high comedy. Earlier this week, Chicago's Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade flat out shit on their teammates for not putting forth the proper amount of effort. Enter Rajon Rondo who felt the need to join in on the shitting by tossing said shit right back at Butler and Wade. But perhaps the most telling part of the situation is that in both ESPN articles there is not one single quote or even mention about head coach Fred Hoiberg. Where Hoiberg is mentioned in another article that asks whether or not Butler “big leagued” him during a timeout. Sacramento who?


"My vets would never go to the media. They would come to the team. ... My goal is to pass what I learned along. The young guys work. They show up. They don't
