NBA Betting Recap: Chicago Bulls cover crazy in-game pointspread of -50

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
There isn't a bettor alive that wasn't thinking "middle" during last night's Chicago-Milwaukee game. You could have live bet the Bulls -20 AND the Bucks +50. Too bad Chicago covered every single number, even the crazy -49.5+374 Pinnacle hung during the last time out. A little different that the Clipper-Spurs contest which never saw an in-game line of double-digits.

NBA Gambling: Miami Heat really good at having horrifically bad quarters

Two weeks removed from producing one of the biggest meltdowns of the season, the Miami Heat are back to kicking bettors in the groin. With a 51-32 halftime lead over the Chicago Bulls, the Heat appears well on their way to a critical win. But that's when things got messy. Chicago somehow outscored Miami 33-8 in the third quarter and at one point lead by as many as 12 in the fourth quarter. Miami is now 1.5 games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.


“We’re all frustrated when you’re in those situations. and you can’t stop an avalanche like that, but the only answer is in that locker room, and we haven’t figured out a way to hold the fort in those situations,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said.

Important game in the Eastern Conference as Chicago heads to Miami. The Bulls are currently tied with Toronto for the third seed while the Heat, losers of seven of their last 10, sit a game out of the eight spot.


“We know where we stand,” said guard Dwyane Wade, who had 19 points. “We’ve got some tough games (left) and we have an opportunity to give ourselves a great chance by the way we play – especially here at home.”

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."

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
