NBA Gambling Alert: Milwaukee Bucks priced as road chalk

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Milwaukee -2 at Philadelphia O/U 209.5

Rarified air for the Milwaukee Bucks tonight as betting market steam has them currently priced as a road favorite for the first time this season. It's only the third time this year they've been "chalk." But on the surface it appears warranted as the Philadelphia 76ers have somehow gone from bad to worse. They haven't won a game this month and were blown out by bottom feeders Cleveland, Los Angeles, Boston, and Detroit but an average of 16.5 ppg.

Dallas -13.5 at Philadelphia O/U 212

Huge move on both the side and total for tonight's Dallas-Philadelphia game. The Mavericks opened -9.5 with a total of 216. They've since been steamed up to -13.5 while the total – a rare occurrence for any game involving the 76ers – was bet down to 212. Yesterday, Philly unloaded Evan Turner, Lavoy Allen, and Spencer Hawes.

NBA Gambling: Philadelphia 76ers ready for second half

Cleveland -3.5 Philadelphia O/U 209.5

Arguably no team needed the All-Star break more than the Philadelphia 76ers. Over their last eight games, the Sixers allowed 115.4 ppg. According to head coach Brett Brown, team morale is high. Philly's schedule over the next few weeks is rather favorable with five straight at home and eight of their next 10 vs. sub-.500 teams.


"I think they're great," Brown said. "They had a heck of a practice today. They have surprised me in that regard throughout the course of the year. They bring, most times, 'A' effort to our practices. Most times they handle it just like pros should handle it. Their spirits are good, despite our record."

"When you see them like this, you realize just how unrested they were when I left them," Brown said. "When we had lost some games as we did, and you

NBA Gambling Update: Philadelphia 76ers crushed again

02.11.2014     06:57 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

It didn't hit -55 but for the second straight game, bettors witnessed some crazy in-game lines involving the Philadelphia 76ers. Last night they were waxed once again by the Golden State Warriors 123-80. The peak in-game price at Pinnacle was Golden State -44.5. And despite allowing 123 in back-to-back games, both went way under the total due to Philly's offensive shortcomings. The 76ers close out their West Coast trip on Wednesday in Utah before the All-Star break. We did check to see if there were and recent in-game lines of this magnitude and found Oklahoma City -48.5 during their 114-69 rout of Charlotte last season.

NBA Handicapping: Style, coach continue to hamper Philadelphia 76ers

01.31.2014     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It has been a mess of a season for the Philadelphia 76ers. They're young, don't have much talent, and play for a coach who is insistent on playing at a breakneck pace. Head coach Brett Brown has talked all season about playing better defense but he gives the 76ers little to no chance to succeed considering that amount of possessions that are played. Philly's current pace is 102.1 – if that holds, they'll be the first team to average above 100 for a season since the 2009-10 Golden State Warriors who finished 30 games under .500 (they did rack up an impressive 47-35 ATS record). Philly though has not had success against the spread (19-27 ATS) and 46 games into the season, Brown admitted that his style has essentially backfired. Note that Philadelphia's propensity for "overs" as cooled considerably with eight "unders" in its last 10 games. They're still coughing up 100+ on a routine basis but the team is clearly worn down and the offense has suffered (95.2 ppg last 10; 101.2 ppg seasonal).

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: NBA Moneyburners!

01.13.2014     12:18 PM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week, I took an in-depth look at five of the biggest moneymakers in the NBA through the first half of the season.  This week I’m going to focus on the teams at the other end of the spectrum – bottom feeders and disappointments.  I’ll break down the three biggest money-losers of the season thusfar.  And I’ll take a look at a ‘morpher’; a team playing significantly worse than current market projections.

I’ll start with the three teams that can be collectively called ‘the hopeless trio’.  It’s hard to make money betting on the very worst teams in any sport, and the NBA is certainly no exception.  And there’s no question who the very worst team in the NBA is this year, because they have both the worst SU record in the league (7-29) and the worst pointspread mark (12-24 ATS).  That team?  The Milwaukee Bucks!

Bucks head coach Larry Drew has never coached a bottom feeder before.  He walked into a good situation in Atlanta with the Hawks, who made the playoffs all three years that he was coaching the team.  Here in Milwaukee, the playoffs Read more

NBA Handicapping: 76ers continue to play fast despite glaring deficiencies

12.03.2013     12:36 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you're looking for a blueprint of how to trend over the total in the NBA, read this. The Philadelphia 76ers are 13-5 O/U, play at the fastest pace in the league (102.8), and rank 26th in defensive efficiency (104.4).


"When you choose to play at a pace that we're trying to play at, the problems can really start there," Brown said following practice yesterday at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. "We turn it over a lot, and they run at us. We take quick, bad shots and they run at us. A lot of our transition defensive problems are coming from turnovers and quick, bad shots, because we're so adamant on playing at a speed. Somewhere out there, down the road now, there needs to be a better understanding for how you responsibly play that style of play. Then, when you just get into basic halfcourt defense, it's a whole other story about accountability, define a team, all those things. And me doing a better job coaching some rotations. But our defense is most definitely a problem, and I think some of that spins

NBA Handicapping: 76ers are the league's best OVER bet

11.27.2013     07:06 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Philadelphia 76ers have been the strongest "over" team in the NBA thus far at 11-4 O/U thanks to a quick pace, better than expected offensive efficiency, worse than expected defensive efficiency, and little to no bench. It’s not a profile first-year head coach Brett Brown is fond of with the team already making various roster moves as Brown seeks to build towards the future. Philly travels to Orlando tonight with a total of 208.5.


"That won't change," Hinkie said. "It doesn't mean there will be lots of changes. It just means our job is to keep looking. Keep looking all the time. Keep looking internally and keep looking externally.

"Keep comparing all the time, who can help move us forward."

NBA Handicapping: ESPN decides to show up at the Philadelphia 76ers' Tankfest

10.29.2013     02:35 PM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's not a good sign when prior to start of the regular season, ESPN has an article on its front page talking about your ridiculously low season over/under wins number and the likelihood of a total tank job.


"They've pretty much made it known in Philadelphia they're trying to get the No. 1 pick for Andrew Wiggins and not holding back," Sherman said. "Teams try for the draft pick sometimes late in the season, but they're basically doing it the whole season."
