NBA Handicapper Free Play: Boston Celtics at Sacramento Kings

Boston at Sacramento -3.5 O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Over


This will be the first game for Sacramento under new head coach George Karl who brings in his up-tempo brand of basketball as he tries to rebuild the fledgling Kings. After Mike Malone was fired, Sacramento went 7-2 O/U run in its first nine games under Ty Corbin. But as the market adjusted that trend wore off a seven of the Kings’ last eight games leading into the All-Star break went under. With Karl now at the helm, and veteran Andre Miller joining him for a third time, I think there’s a good chance this team could go on another stretch of “over” basketball. Boston isn’t likely to shy away from an up-tempo game as they’ve seen each of its last four games against team with a losing record (Philadelphia, Denver, New York, and Minnesota) fly over the total. Boston improved themselves at point guard by acquiring Isaiah Thomas from the Phoenix Suns. He should fit in nicely to a solid three-guard lineup with Avery Bradley and Marcus Smart. Boston will be without a major front court presence for an indefinite period of time with Jared Sullinger out with a foot Read more

NBA Handicapping: Dragic to Miami highlights trade deadline

02.20.2015     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rather that sift through a Twitter timeline, fifty different articles, or Simmons' Members Only Grantland conversation that was neither informative or funny, Deadspin made it easy and broke down all of yesterday's NBA trades. Yeah, it's snarky, but in three minutes, you'll be up to speed. The biggest trade was Phoenix's Goran Dragic getting shipped to Miami. That instantly made the Heat a contender in the Eastern Conference. But not 24 hours after it went down, the team announced Chris Both may have a blood clot in his lung and could miss the rest of the season. We'll be talking more about the trading deadline as well as all of Friday night's game on the Sportsmemo Podcast this afternoon.

NBA remains curious about legalized sports betting

Good for you, NBA. Good for you.


"Everyone has known for years that there is a ton of money being made that's not being enjoyed, frankly, by the people who are creating the games, both the owners and the players," Roberts said.

"I know all the negatives that up to today have kept gambling outside of the realm of what is appropriate in terms of sports. But let's not ignore the big elephant in the room. There's a lot of money being made. "

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA post All-Star bet-on teams

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The All-Star game has come and gone, leaving us headed for the homestretch of the NBA campaign; the final eight weeks of action between the All Star Break and the start of the playoffs.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll be taking a hard look at two veteran teams – one from the East and one from the West – that have all the makings of being strong bet-on squads over the final two months of the regular season.

My #1 post All-Star break bet-on team from the East is the Indiana Pacers.  At 21-33 SU, Indiana can only be described as a disappointment thusfar;  a major drop for a team that earned the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs last spring while making their second consecutive trip to the Eastern Conference Finals.  

Many veteran teams that have suffered through major drop-offs aren’t particularly excited about putting together a late playoff run, only to be outclassed in their opening round matchup.  There’s a reason that a team like Brooklyn, for example, isn’t on this list.  But the Pacers are one veteran team that is capable of pulling off a series upset Read more

NBA Gambling: Stern says Silver is right for seeking legalized betting

02.10.2015     01:57 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Now we have former NBA commissioner David Stern on board with Adam Silver's push for legalized sports betting.  


"I agree with Commissioner Silver that it's time," Stern said at the 14th annual Cal Ramsey Distinguished Lecturer Series in Sports Management at New York University. "Especially in the day and age of fantasy [sports], daily fantasy [leagues]. ... It's still a game of skill and has its own set of issues with algorithms and bet large sums, but it's time." 
 
"Because fans don't walk out of the Garden saying, 'Oh my God, it's too bad the Knicks won but they didn't cover [the betting line],'" Stern said. "But now there is so much written, done, daily fantasy [leagues], etc."

NBA Handicapping: After shoring up offense, Pistons take step back defensively

02.09.2015     02:13 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on Detroit's recent defensive woes. The Pistons have taken on a number of identities this season. In November, when they couldn't win a game to save their lives, they were primarily a low scoring "under" team. They around mid-December, they decided to pick up the pace and open up the offense. But with that came a decline defensively, particularly of late.


"We've been trying to save their energy, but we didn't use any last night anyway, so we saved it last night, so we should have been able to go today," Van Gundy said after a short practice today. "We needed to get back into some better habits."

"Now over the last 10 games, we're 28th defensively, we're still seventh offensively so we lose (Brandon Jennings to Achilles injury), play 10 games without him, you stay seventh in offensive efficiency, that's pretty good, you should be winning more games, but our defense has dropped off the charts," Van Gundy said. "We got to try to get it back, we haven't had enough practice time.

NBA Handicapping: Bettors curious how Orlando will play under interim head coach

02.06.2015     07:34 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Orlando Magic fired head coach Jacque Vaughn and a majority of his staff earlier this week. Lead assistant James Borrego was appointed interim head coach. Bettors are left wondering what type of style the Magic will play under Borrego’s watch. About a month ago, Vaughn decided he wanted his team to pick up the tempo. They scored back-to-back high scoring wins over Chicago and Houston but it was fool's gold as the team's defense went from bad to worse and Vaughn was eventually shown the door. It did however result in a sweet two-week stretch of seven straight overs. GM Rob Hennigan said the Magic need to get back to playing more defensive minded basketball which hints things could slow down some. We'll get a better idea tonight as Orlando plays host to the Los Angeles Lakers.


"We went into the season wanting to see some progress," Hennigan said. "We wanted to see growth, and we just didn't feel like we were seeing the type of growth that we wanted to see. So that led us to this point. I would say

NBA Handicapping: Dallas travels to Sacramento in back-to-back spot

Tough spot for Dallas tonight with its game against Sacramento marking the seventh in 10 days and third back-to-back. Last night, the Mavs blew a 21-point lead at Golden State in a 128-114 loss. Monta Ellis and Chandler Parsons both played 38 minutes.


"You think about fatigue from top to bottom, not just for your best guys. But we’ll see where we are tomorrow and go from there.’’
