NBA Betting News: Chicago's Derrick Rose set to return

04.08.2015     07:50 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Chicago's Derrick Rose is expected to make his return tonight after missing the last six weeks with another knee injury. The Bulls currently hold the third spot in the Eastern Conference; a game ahead of Toronto. They're 8-point road favorites against Orlando tonight.


"Just him being on the floor is a plus for our team," Thibodeau said. "I'm not expecting him to play 35 minutes. I'm not expecting him to score 30 points. Just go out there, run the team, play to your strengths, cover up your weaknesses, make your teammates better. That's all I want him to do."

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Detroit Pistons at Chicago Bulls

Detroit at Chicago -9 O/U 197
Recommendation: Chicago


I expect a bounce back effort from the Chicago Bulls following a 95-91 defeat to the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night. There is a game at Cleveland on deck which is a mild concern but I think you will get the requisite focus and intensity from the home favorite tonight especially after getting worked over by the Pistons 107-91 two weeks ago. It’s a game Tom Thibodeau remembers: "You can't let your guard down in this league," coach Tom Thibodeau said after Chicago blew a 19-point lead and was outscored 54-19 in the final 19 minutes of a 107-91 defeat to the Pistons on March 21. The Pistons deserve credit as they have shown a lot of fight despite being all but eliminated from the playoff race as they currently sit five games out of the eighth and final spot. But Wednesday’s 102-78 loss to Charlotte may have been the “tap out” on the season as this squad looks to be a prime “bet against” target. Detroit is also banged up with backup point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who performed well in the absence of injured Brandon Jennings, listed as doubtful for Read more

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls' defensive struggles return

01.30.2015     07:56 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Not a week removed from experiencing a short termed defensive renaissance, the Chicago Bulls' struggles have returned. Last night, they allowed 47% shooting and 18 offensive rebounds in a 123-118 OT loss to the Lakers. Tough spot tonight as Chicago travels to Phoenix in a back-to-back spot. The Suns have won 15 of 21 and rank 7th in the NBA in offensive efficiency. 


"We're not guarding anybody right now," Bulls swingman Jimmy Butler said. "That's what you think when you think Chicago -- is how great we are on defense. We haven't been that team, maybe three, four, five, six times this year tops. We can score the ball, so sometimes we outscore teams, but we haven't been playing any defense lately."

NBA Gambling Update: Bulls in tough spot following hump up effort vs. Spurs

01.23.2015     06:58 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

So Chicago's "team meeting" obviously helped as the Bulls smoked San Antonio last night, 104-81. But the question is can they do it again, in a back-to-back spot, on the road, against arguably the best offense in the NBA?


“Tonight we came out with the right attitude, we set the tone defensively, we were getting to the loose balls, we were rebounding the ball well,” Gasol said. “Just active from the weakside, communicating better. All those things make such a big difference.”

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls hold team meeting to address crappy defense

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's been a very uncharacteristic run for the Chicago Bulls who have lost six of eight and haven't played much of any defense. Playing the Bulls or the under off a bad defensive performance used to be a high percentage play. Heading into tonight's game vs. San Antonio, they've allowed 100+ in five straight games. On Tuesday, head coach Tom Thibodeau canceled practice and held a team meeting. According to Derrick Rose, the Bulls' schtick is getting pretty old.


"It was a good meeting," Bulls center Pau Gasol said Wednesday. "Positive, important, where people just spoke up, shared their thoughts. If we want to get out of this slump, we've got to do it together. We can't really do it individually. We have to do it together as a team, as a group. And that's how you get through stuff, especially adversity."

"We got to give a better effort," Derrick Rose said that night. "It seems like we're not even competing, and it's f---ing irritating."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA Eastern Conference Betting News and Notes

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There’s only one meaningful game remaining in the 2014 football season.  Meanwhile, the NBA has reached the halfway point of the 2014-15 campaign without much fanfare.  In this week’s Wiseguy Report, I’ll be focusing on NBA Notes and Quotes from three pointspread outliers from the Eastern Conference.  How can we make money off these teams as they morph from contenders to pretenders or vice versa?  Read on to find out!

The Atlanta Hawks have been the single most under-reported story of the current NBA season, by a fairly wide margin.  Make no mistake about it – right now, the Hawks are the best team in the Eastern Conference and it’s not even close!  And, as a smaller market team without marquee superstars, Atlanta continues to retain their pointspread value; still very much a bet-on team two full months after their hot streak started!

Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer was a longtime Greg Popovich assistant in San Antonio, and his team is drawing comparisons to the Spurs on a nightly basis.  Budenholzer’s squad relies, like the defending champs, on ball movement and depth.  The Hawks lead Read more

NBA Gambling Trends: Chicago Bulls have strong track record off poor defensive performance

Washington at Chicago -5.5 O/U 181.5

Fairly strong trend in play for tonight's Washington-Chicago Game 2. Under Tom Thibodeau, the Bulls are 39-20 SU and 36-22-1 ATS off a loss in which they allowed 100+ points. In those 59 games, Chicago allowed an average of 92.1 points per game. This season, under those same parameters, they are 8-4 SU, 9-3 ATS including a current run of 5-1 SU, 6-0 ATS.


“Our defense wasn’t very good,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “You have to adjust to how the game is being called. We can’t allow it to take away from our aggressiveness. We have to play hard without fouling. We have to be disciplined.

NBA Handicapping: Toronto not concerned with first round matchup

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Toronto Raptors claim not to care who they play in the first round of the NBA Playoffs. They are currently tied with Chicago for the no. 3 seed. A win tonight over the Knicks means Toronto will face either Washington or Charlotte. If they lose and the Bulls win (at Charlotte), the Raptors would face Brooklyn in the first round. Head coach Dwane Casey has been resting his starters at times down the stretch of the regular season.


“I’m more worried about us moreso than who we play. It’s about us. About our health, rest, whatever we decide to do in that situation. If we play Brooklyn, we play Brooklyn, if we play Washington, we play Washington, there’s no easy teams left in the playoffs right now, all the teams are very capable,” Casey said.

“Brooklyn is probably more playoff-ready, but we can’t control that and we’re not going into this game trying to control that. I’m more worried about our guys’ health — rest if we rest them — and our rhythm. And

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls concerned with winning not first round matchup

04.04.2014     07:35 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It is pretty obvious there are a number of NBA teams trying to lose for a better draft slot but every year around this time talks surface about "tanking" in order to secure a better postseason matchup. For whatever reason someone came up with the idea that the Chicago Bulls would be better served facing the Nets (2-1) as oppose to the Wizards (0-2). Joakim Noah ain’t buying it


"We're just trying to play good basketball," Noah said. "There's no way in hell we're going to try and lose games to match up against anybody. I think whatever happens, happens, so we're just going to keep playing our game, keep winning as much as we can, and then (we) can't wait for the playoffs."

"I think losing games to try to play somebody, I think that's soft," Noah said. "That's soft. We're not soft."

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Golden State Warriors at Chicago Bulls

Golden State -3 at Chicago O/U 186.5
Recommendation: Golden State


My clients and I cashed a winner with the Warriors as they opened up this East Coast swing with a come-from behind victory at Detroit on Monday.  And the ‘buy’ sign on the Warriors is only getting brighter as they get healthier. 

Starting center Andrew Bogut returned to the lineup on Monday, and starting power forward David Lee has been upgraded to ‘probable’ for tonight.  Both Jermaine O’Neal and Draymond Green played well in the absence of Marc Jackson’s two usual low post starters.  That leaves the Warriors with a deep, veteran frontcourt that is relatively fresh and playing at a high level right now.

When the Warriors beat the Bulls by 15 at home earlier this month, Chicago had no answers for Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Jordan Crawford and Harrison Barnes.  Golden State’s top four perimeter sharpshooters combined to hit 11-18 from Read more
