NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Chicago Bulls at Golden State Warriors

Chicago +14 at Golden State O/U 223.5
Recommendation: Chicago


Betting the Warriors off a rare loss was a real moneymaker last year.  That has not been the case here in 2016-17.  Golden State is coming off their eighth loss of the season, at Sacramento last weekend. Following their first seven defeats, the Warriors won their next game by 8, 10, 29, 8, 10, 11 and 10 points.

Note the lack of big blowouts – only once in those seven contests did the Warriors win by enough of a margin to cover tonight’s spread.  And the Warriors 3-4 ATS mark in those contests must come with an asterisk. Two of the three pointspread covers came when Golden State was -9.5 in games they won by exactly ten points.  And with Draymond Green dealing with a bum knee while Zaza Pachulia and David West are both out, this Warriors front court rotation is awfully thin right now.

My clients and I cashed a pair of Big Ticket winners with the Bulls last week, in their blowout win at OKC and their wire-to-wire spread covering loss in OT at Houston.   And there’s every reason to think that the Bulls remain a bet-on Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Lakers at Washington Wizards

Los Angeles at Washington -11 O/U 219.5
Recommendation: Washington


People are FINALLY starting to notice, and this streak will not go on forever.  But my clients and I have cashed in repeatedly backing the Washington Wizards throughout their 15-0 SU, 14-1 ATS run at home over the past eight weeks.  And there’s absolutely no reason to jump off this profit train until we’ve seen legitimate evidence that the markets have caught up with Washington’s improved play.  So far, the markets haven’t made the appropriate adjustments.

Washington wasn’t very good in November, opening the season with eight losses in their first ten games.  They weren’t much better in their next ten games, going 5-5 SU, including losses to the likes of Orlando and Miami.  On the heels of last year’s disappointing campaign, that was all the betting markets needed to see – Washington’s power rating was set in near bottom feeder range, a below average NBA team.

The results don’t lie.  Since that 7-13 SU and ATS start, Washington is 21-7 SU, 22-6 ATS – the best SU record in Read more

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

Denver -2 at Los Angeles O/U 226
Recommendation: Over


Each side is without a significant post presence in this one as Denver starting C Nikola Jokic will miss his second straight game due to a strained hip and Lakers starting PF Julius Randle (pneumonia) will miss his second consecutive game. The holes in the Nuggets middle was filled by Jusuf Nurkic Saturday night versus Phoenix but depth behind him is non-existent. Nurkic only played 15:29 minutes as Denver went small for the majority of their 123-112 victory. Los Angeles inserted Tarik Black into their PF spot and he went 30:29 minutes in last Thursday’s 96-88 loss at Utah. The Lakers have more interior options than Denver does which will likely give them a significant “points in the paint” edge tonight. Also note that LA will have starting PG D’Angelo Russell back for this one after going through a full practice Monday and being cleared by team doctors for game action. How effective Russell will be is debatable but the Lakers are now again at full strength in the backcourt.     

Denver has been on an absolute roll the past nine games Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Heat at Chicago Bulls

Miami +7.5 at Chicago O/U 204
Recommendation: Miami


It’s not hard to make a case for betting against the Chicago Bulls tonight; a team who’s internal chemistry has clearly fallen off a cliff in recent weeks.  The Bulls late game meltdown against Atlanta on Wednesday – a true ‘Moose’ for their pointspread backers, as the Hawks closed out the game on a 19-4 run over the last three minutes, erasing a ten point deficit in the process – made a bad situation worse.

Dwayne Wade ripped into his teammates following the loss: “Everyone don’t care enough…I don't know how you fix it. It just doesn't mean enough for guys around here to want to win ball games. It pisses me off. Games are supposed to hurt. You're not supposed to sleep. You're not supposed to want to talk to anybody. I don't know if that is in guys in this locker room.”

So did Jimmy Butler:  “Something is wrong. I want to play with guys who care, guys who play hard, who want to do well for this organization, who want to do whatever it takes to win.”
Then Rajon Rondo went off on his teammates on Read more

NBA Gambling Update: Bulls' situation somehow goes from bad to worse

01.27.2017     09:07 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

This is high comedy. Earlier this week, Chicago's Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade flat out shit on their teammates for not putting forth the proper amount of effort. Enter Rajon Rondo who felt the need to join in on the shitting by tossing said shit right back at Butler and Wade. But perhaps the most telling part of the situation is that in both ESPN articles there is not one single quote or even mention about head coach Fred Hoiberg. Where Hoiberg is mentioned in another article that asks whether or not Butler “big leagued” him during a timeout. Sacramento who?


"My vets would never go to the media. They would come to the team. ... My goal is to pass what I learned along. The young guys work. They show up. They don't

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls not in a good place right now

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Move over New York Knicks, there's a new dumpster fire in town. Here we have Chicago's Jimmy Butler and Dwyane Wade basically calling the entire team soft following last night's home loss to Atlanta. The Bulls face Miami and Philadelphia at home before embarking on a six-game west coast road trip.


"M-----f-----s just got to care if we win or lose," Butler said. "At the end of the day, do whatever it takes to help the team win. You play your role to the tee. Be a star in your role, man. That's how you win in this league, man. You have to embrace what this team, what this organization needs for you to do on either end of the floor. On top of everything else, just play every possession like it's your last. We don't play hard all the time. It's very disappointing whenever we don't play hard."

NBA Gambling: Washington-Boston apparently don't like each other

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Things could get chippy tonight in our nation's capital as the Celtics and Wizards hook up for what is turning into a good old fashion "hated rivalry." The Wiz are adding fuel to the fire by wearing all black jerseys because nothing screams hatred more than a dark-hued uniform.


As Thomas said of another meeting with the Wizards, "We just gotta be ready for whatever comes our way. We're not going to shy away from it. We're all human, so there's probably going to be a little bit of physicality, a little bit of things that carry over for [Tuesday's] game. The most important thing we got to do is just try to take care of business and end their winning streak at home."

Reporters also asked Wall about the dress code, and he responded, "All black everything. A funeral."

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Golden State Warriors at Houston Rockets

Golden State -5 at Houston O/U 239.5
Recommendation: Golden State


When these teams met for the first time this season, the Warriors were laying -11 to the Rockets at home.  Golden State never led by more than four points at any point during that game, eventually losing outright in overtime.  The key to Golden State’s weakness that night?  Nothing more than a rare poor shooting game from their starting backcourt, as Steph Curry and Klay Thompson combined to hit just 13-of-42 from the floor.  Meanwhile, Houston role player Ryan Anderson came off the bench to score 29, including five backbreaking three pointers.

Anderson has missed the last two games with the flu, no sure thing to suit up or be effective this evening.  Here’s the quote from Rockets head coach Mike D’Antonio, following Houston’s loss in Miami earlier in the week with an injury depleted roster: “These are dog days. We're going to have to find some energy and see if we can sneak one out."

It’s been an impressive first half of the season for the Rockets, currently sitting at #3 in the West – this is Read more

NBA Handicapping: Warriors-Rockets total highest since 2010

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Some rarified air tonight with the Golden State-Houston total currently sitting at 238. It's the highest NBA total since 2010 when the Warriors and Suns closed 244 and landed 264. Totals of 235 or higher are 8-8-1 O/U since 1995. Interesting that totals in regulation are nearly dead even this season at 300-299 O/U.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Memphis Grizzlies at Washington Wizards

Memphis at Washington -2 O/U 207
Recommendation: Washington


The markets haven’t come close to catching up with the Wizards in recent weeks, particularly on their home floor.  The Wizards are 15-7 SU since their 2-8 start.  At home, the numbers are even more impressive: 12-0 SU, 11-1 ATS ; a streak that dates back to early December.  Shooting guard Bradley Beal: “We have that extra urge here, that will to want to win. We want to be a great team here and home, we want to have home court when playoff time comes around."

Washington’s run of success is no fluke.  Point guard John Wall is playing at a superstar level, ranked #5 in the NBA (behind Westbrook, Curry, Lowry and Paul) in REAL plus/minus for point guards.  Small forward Otto Porter has come into his own as well, ranked #6 at his position in REAL plus/minus, behind the likes of LeBron, Kawhi, Greek Freak, Durant and Jimmy Butler.  Marcin Gortat is cleaning up in the low post, Beal is draining three’s, and despite a relatively weak bench, Scott Brooks has a surging, confident team right now.

The Wizards are rested and Read more
