NBA Gambling: Miami Heat now favored to win Meltdown of the Year award

03.25.2015     07:08 AM     Printer Friendly
On the meltdown scale, this one is up there with some of best/worst...depending on what side you bet. With 9:52 left in the fourth quarter, the Miami Heat led the Milwaukee Bucks 81-65 and looked well on their way to a nice road win and cover. But then problems started to occur. From the 9:52 mark until just over a minute to go, the Heat netted six points. This of course allowed the Bucks to climb back into the game. We don't have the vocabulary to describe the ending so let's go to the tape.

NBA Handicapping: Dragic to Miami highlights trade deadline

02.20.2015     07:41 AM     Printer Friendly 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 Handicapper Free Play: Miami Heat at Memphis Grizzlies

12.07.2014     08:31 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Miami at Memphis -8 O/U 190.5
Recommendation: Memphis

The Heat haven’t been able to stay healthy enough to develop much on-court chemistry in the post-LeBron era, with Dwyane Wade bouncing in and out of the lineup and Luol Deng likely to sit once again tonight.  Miami hasn’t beaten a foe that’s anywhere near the .500 mark since the second week of November and I’m not expecting them to break that streak here.   Their only wins in the last three weeks have come against bottom feeders: the Knicks, Bobcats and Magic, all lottery bound foes.  And when the Heat lose, they aren’t coming close, showing plenty of fourth quarter quit.  Each of Miami’s last five losses has come by a double digit margin.

Memphis is a bet-on team today after suffering their first back-to-back losses of the season against Houston and San Antonio in their last two games.  The Grizz continue to  search for the respect that has consistently eluded them in recent seasons when they’ve been an afterthought upstart on the national stage, not a serious title contender.  Center Marc Gasol: Read more

NBA Handicapping: Bettors play guessing game with LeBron's destination

07.08.2014     08:36 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
As nauseating as it is to follow the coverage of LeBron James' free agent saga it has had an impact on the betting markets. Anticipating a potential move back to Cleveland a few Las Vegas bettors jumped in on the Cavs to win next year's NBA title. The MGM reportedly took a dime bet that helped drop the line from 40-1 to (geesh) 10-1. A slightly less knee-jerk reaction at LVH with Cleveland's odds now 30-1 after opening 60-1. Note that the MGM was the same sportsbook that at one point had the USMNT at 10-1 to win the World Cup.

"They are our biggest liability right now," said MGM VP of Race and Sports Jay Rood. "We took a dime ($1,000) on them at 40-1."

NBA Gambling: LeBron James' next move impacts sportsbooks and bettors

06.25.2014     01:59 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Following news of LeBron James’ willingness to test the free agent waters, a few sportsbooks were quick to pull down their 2015 NBA future odds.

"When a player like LeBron decides to change teams, it not only affects the status of the Heat, but the entire NBA," said John Avello, the head of the race and sports book at the Wynn. "I have to close everything to evaluate. If he leaves the Eastern Conference, it makes an additional handful of teams a contender."

NBA Finals Gambling Consensus: Bettors split on their opinion for Game 4

06.12.2014     07:53 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
In a rare instance, the betting consensus for Game 4 of the NBA Finals between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs is divided. According to the Bookmaker, 51% of bets have been placed on the Spurs +5, 56% are on the OVER, and 50.3% on the Spurs' moneyline. The betting markets seem in agreement with the side with Miami still a 5-point favorite at most offshore sportsbooks. There does appear to be a small push toward the Heat with Pinnacle, Grande, and a number of Las Vegas books at -5.5. Also note that the adjusted series price of San Antonio -235 was bet down to as low as -210 – a seemingly correlated move with the aforementioned Game 4 money on the Heat.
