NBA Handicapping: Denver Nuggets running out of options at point guard

02.12.2014     11:52 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Denver at Minnesota -6.5 O/U 208

Add the Denver Nuggets to the list of teams eager for the All-Star Break. This team has been hammered by injuries and may be down to its fifth-string point guard tonight. Ty Lawson, Andre Miller, Nate Robinson, Danilo Gallinari, and JaVale McGee are all out. And Randy Foye, the team's makeshift floor general, hurt his ankle during shootaround. He's expected to play but the Nuggets may start Evan Fournier.


“Well he started out shootaround and went in for the majority of shootaround to work on his ankle, so it’s up in the air,” Shaw said. “That’s all I can give you at this point. I think he’ll be able to go…”

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers

Utah at LA Lakers -1.5 O/U 202
Recommendation: Over


These two teams have met twice this season with both games going OVER the total.  The two games featured 209 and 208 points, and with both teams at the bottom tier of the standings defense should continue to be an afterthought.  The Jazz have trended UNDER the total of late, with their last five games all landing that way.  They seemed at peace slowing these games down against playoff competition, but I expect their style to reflect more openness tonight.  Meanwhile, the Lakers continue to lose players but have found ways to compete and play largely the same style.  With head coach Mike D’Antoni, the Lakers push the pace and try to outscore the opposition.  The last game the Lakers played with a total lined this low – outside of facing the Chicago Bulls – was their January 3 match-up against the Jazz.  During that stretch, Laker games have trended 13-6 to the OVER.  Look for these Read more

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 Betting News: Phoenix Suns continue to play faster

02.11.2014     06:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Article on the Phoenix Suns picking up the tempo over the course of the first half of the season. They've managed to increase the pacing of their games in every month. Trend-wise, Phoenix is 28-21-1 O/U on the season, 11-5 O/U its last 16 games, and 3-0 O/U its last three. Tonight's total against Miami is currently 208.5.


“I think we’re running more,” Dragic said. “Even when they score, we get the ball quick out of bounds and we just push the ball. We put a lot more pressure on their defense….usually, let’s say third or fourth quarter, they get really tired. That’s our biggest advantage.”

“We get out of the basket quicker,” Hornacek said. “Defense, obviously. If you’re getting stops you can run more. I think some of these games that we’re really running, we’re even running on made baskets. Some games we don’t’ take it out quick enough.”

NBA Handicapping: Team meeting, favorable schedule has Dallas Mavericks streaking

02.11.2014     06:25 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following a 117-115 loss to Houston two weeks ago, the Dallas Mavericks have ripped off five straight wins (4-1 ATS). The team reportedly had a closed door meeting to ensure everyone was on the same page. The schedule during that stretch certainly helped with games against Boston, Utah, Cleveland, and Sacramento. The upcoming slate will be more challenging with 10 of their next 15 on the road including tilts against Indiana (twice), Miami, San Antonio, Portland, Golden State, and Oklahoma City.


“We gave up [117] points to Houston at home and we had a meeting after that on how we wanted to finish strong before the All-Star break,” forward Dirk Nowitzki said after Monday’s practice. “That’s what we’ve been doing. [We’re] focusing a lot more on defense and rebounding.”

Asked if it was a players-only meeting, Nowitzki smiled and said: “Coach was definitely in there, brother. He was definitely in there after that loss.”

NBA Handicapping: Detroit Pistons fire Maurice Cheeks

02.10.2014     07:42 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Detroit Pistons have fired head coach Maurice Cheeks. Assistant John Loyer will serve as interim head coach. There are rumblings the team may go after former Memphis head coach Lionel Hollins at some point. Since the departure of Flip Saunders, the last four Detroit head coach have produced a combined record of 171-273. The Pistons enter tonight's game against San Antonio 21-29 SU, 22-27-1 ATS. As bad as things have been, they are currently a half game out of the 8th spot in the Eastern Conference.


"Our record does not reflect our talent and we simply need a change," Pistons owner Tom Gores said in the team's release. "We have not made the kind of progress that we should have over the first half of the season. This is a young team and we knew there would be growing pains, but we can be patient only as long as there is progress.

"The responsibility does not fall squarely on any one individual, but

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Brooklyn Nets at Detroit Pistons

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Brooklyn +1.5 at Detroit O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Brooklyn


The Detroit Pistons certainly qualify for one of the most disappointing teams in the NBA this season after making a splash in the off-season by signing Josh Smith. The Pistons were clearly expected to solidify themselves as a solid Eastern Conference playoff team. However, even in a completely watered down conference, they’re on the outside looking in at the playoffs, while winning less than 40% of their games. While shot selection and efficiency were expected to be sore spots with Brandon Jennings and Smith as key cogs from an offensive usage standpoint, lack of defense has been the main issue. With big bodies Greg Monroe, Andre Drummond and Smith patrolling the paint, their inside resistance should be much better. The Pistons are off another disappointing loss to the Orlando Magic, which included a dustup between head coach Mo Cheeks and guard Will Bynum. Meanwhile, the Nets have turned their season around winning 12 of Read more
