NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Philadephia 76ers at Boston Celtics

Philadelphia +11.5 at Boston O/U 213
Recommendation: Philadelphia


The Celtics consistently step up in statement games, bringing energy and execution against top notch foes.  But Boston is not a ‘win by double digits and blow teams out at home’ type of squad; 0-fer the season ATS as favorites of -8 or higher.  

In fact, Brad Stevens squad is just a 40% ATS proposition at home – Boston is a 'back ‘em on the highway, fade em at home’ type of squad.  They faced Miami on this floor as nine point chalk last week; my clients and I cashing a winning bet when the Celtics only won by three.  Once again tonight, I’m not expecting Boston to bring their ‘A’ game for energy and effort.
The last time Boston played Philly on this floor, they won 84-80, never sniffing a pointspread cover as -12 point chalk.  And when these two teams met up in Philadelphia last month, the Celtics barely escaped with a one point victory on an Isaiah Thomas layup in the final minute as ten point favorites.  The Celtics are well aware that they don’t need their ‘A’ game to Read more

NBA Handicapping: Knicks openly admit they can't guard anyone

01.03.2017     09:29 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Following a December 11 win over the Lakes, the New York Knicks were sitting at a respectable 14-10 and covering pointspreads at a high clip (10-2 ATS run). But things have gone downhill in a hurry with only two wins in their last 10 tries. Head coach Jeff Hornacek rightfully pointed out that the team appears incapable of playing solid defense. And in looking at the team's personnel, it makes perfect sense. Derrick Rose is no longer an elite defender, nor is Joakim Noah. Carmelo Anthony obviously doesn't guard. Based on the NBA's individual defensive ratings, Noah is tops on the team at 89th.

 

"I think they're trying," Hornacek said of the Knicks. "We just must not be good enough defensively."

"I don't think our guys aren't trying. Maybe we're just not capable of it. I don't know," Hornacek said. "That's what we're going to have to figure out. Maybe you have to play some of these other guys. We might have to mix the lineup up somehow."

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Los Angeles Clippers

Denver +8 at Los Angeles O/U 219
Recommendation: Denver


The Clippers come back home after a three-game road trip but they do so without the services of Blake Griffin who is having arthroscopic knee surgery. Without Griffin, the dynamics on offense change drastically. Fundamentally, their transition offense is now significantly downgraded and in the half court, they do not have a replacement with Griffin’s capabilities. Playing without their leading scorer isn’t new since the Clippers did it for 45 games last season but it does force a restructuring of sorts to their offensive style and it places a heavy burden on Chris Paul, J.J. Reddick and Jamal Crawford. That backcourt trio presents the only real offensive threats proven enough to try and compensate for the 21.2 ppg that will be missing for the next three to six weeks. Depth and defense are also obviously hurt for the Clippers who are in a current 4-13 tailspin against the spread.

Denver on the other hand is fully healthy for the first time this season and they are 3-0 ATS in their last three including a 117-107 home win and cover against Dallas last night. The Nuggets Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder at Portland Trail Blazers

Oklahoma City at Portland -2 O/U 218
Recommendation: Over


A wrist injury to Victor Oladipo seems to be causing some line movement as Portland has moved from a +1 underdog to a -1.5 favorite. Backup Anthony Morrow figures to step in as the starter. Subtracting Oladipo from the lineup certainly costs OKC offensively but it would have an even greater effect on their backcourt defense. That’s not a good thing when you’re facing the Portland tandem of Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum. For the Blazers, defense has been optional all season long as opponents have averaged 112.1 ppg. Despite Lillard’s comments after their late November loss to Houston about how the defense needs to get better, the ensuing six games have seen Portland allow 110+ in four of them. Oklahoma City is a high volume possession team that is fully capable of doing the same especially in the form of second chance points since their offensive rebounding creates a significant edge tonight.

Situational aspect to consider would be the back-to-back situation Portland is in tonight after their hard fought contest versus the Clippers last night. Second of Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Pistons at Charlotte Hornets

Detroit at Charlotte -5 O/U 202
Recommendation: Charlotte


Let me start with the basic concept here.  Yes, Detroit got their starting point guard Reggie Jackson back on the floor for their last two games after Jackson missed the first six weeks of the season due to injury.  But while getting Jackson back running the point is a good thing for Stan Van Gundy’s squad in the long term, in the short term it does NOT make them a better squad.  For at least the next few games, while Jackson gets re-acclimated with his teammates, the Pistons base power rating number must be lowered, not raised.  Yet the markets have moved in the opposite direction.

Van Gundy, following Jackson’s first game back on the floor, a loss to Orlando: “We were terrible defensively, terrible. We didn’t put enough into it to win the game. They deserved to win. I think most nights we bring a decent effort. But we’ve been just too up and down defensively. We looked really slow tonight.”

Jackson’s quote: “It's going to take some time to get acclimated with my teammates again, but (the knee) felt good. I Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Utah Jazz at Los Angeles Lakers

Utah -3 at Los Angeles O/U 196.5
Recommendation: Utah


Kudos to the Lakers for overachieving thus far but things are beginning to slip away some due to key injuries. Their recent four-game road trip produced a 1-3 ATS mark and if we push back to November 18, the number becomes 3-7 ATS. That date is significant because it was their first game without starting point guard D’Angelo Russell. From there, LA has dealt with a three-game span in which they were without starting forward Julius Randle due to a hip injury. And three games ago they lost starting guard Nick Young for a month (strained calf). Jose Calderon is also out leaving sixth man Lou Williams as the team's main scorer. Clarkson, Williams and Marcelo Huertas can divide up the minutes at point guard but the cluster of injuries to the backcourt can be preyed upon by opponents. Utah should be able to not only exploit the backcourt but also the small forward spot. Lakers starter Luol Deng and rookie Brandon Graham figure to have their hand full with top scorer Gordon Heyward. LA has no other small forwards since Larry Nance Jr. is nursing a knee Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Indiana Pacers at Portland Trail Blazers

Indiana at Portland -7.5 O/U 209.5
Recommendation: Portland


The Blazers have been a major early season disappointment.  After finishing with the #5 seed in the West last year, Portland is just 9-10 SU, 6-13 ATS to open the new campaign.  That includes six losses in their last eight games.  Twice in their last three contests, the Blazers have allowed their opponent to score 130+ against them! 

Less than 12 hours following the latest loss – at home against Houston on Sunday – head coach Terry Stotts had his team back on the practice floor.  All Star point guard Damian Lillard: “This is the first time we've had a real practice in what seems like forever. It was good for us to try to sharpen up, (to have) coaches challenge us. It's to the point now where our pride has to kick in. We have to show how much we actually care about ... being better defensively."

Lillard continued: "We scored 125 points against Cleveland. That's a lot of points to score and not win a game. Right now, we're not getting it done on the defensive end. That's what it comes down to.”
