NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Oklahoma City Thunder at Sacramento Kings

Oklahoma City -8.5 at Sacramento O/U 227.5
Recommendation: Under


It will be interesting to see how Oklahoma City responds after the heartbreaking overtime home loss to Golden State this past Saturday. Up 11 with less than five minutes to go, the Thunder looked tentative down the stretch as Golden State relentlessly charged back to ultimately tie the game. Without Kevin Durant for the final four minutes of overtime (fouled out) OKC couldn’t hang on to a five-point lead. To their credit, the Thunder while disappointed with the result are pointing toward their defense which held the GSW to 103 points in regulation as a positive and the battle cry heading into tonight’s game is to continue playing 48 minutes of that type of defense in each of their final 23 regular season games. Sacramento provides a strong offensive test for the Thunder tonight so expect them to play highly energetic defense here. Helping Oklahoma City in this one could be the absence of Kings starting PG Rajon Rondo who’s thumb injury lists him as very questionable tonight. Also, injuries to starting SF Rudy Gay (shoulder-questionable) and starting C DeMarcus Cousins Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Dallas Mavericks

Denver +5 at Dallas O/U 209
Recommendation: Denver


Very quietly, waaaay underneath the national radar, the Dallas Mavericks have been falling apart for the better part of the last two months.  To call the Mavs poor home favorites is something of an understatement.  The results don’t lie.  Dallas has played 13 home games since the calendar turned to 2016.  They have led at the end of regulation in a grand total of three of those games.

The teams Dallas has been able to beat comfortably at home are not exactly elite.  They’ve beaten the 76ers, Nets and Suns – three of the four worst teams in the NBA (along with the Lakers, of course).  Twice Dallas has escaped with OT wins over non-playoff teams (Sacramento and Minnesota); more ‘lucky’ than ‘good’ even when stepping down in class.

In fact, the Mavs haven’t really been beating any competitive teams on any floor of late.  They are 4-10 SU in their last 14 games, with the wins coming against Philly, Brooklyn, the LA Lakers and Memphis without Marc Gasol in the lineup – not exactly an elite quartet. Read more

NBA Gambling News: Houston Rockets on the brink of implosion

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you thought the Sacramento Kings were a circus, wait till you read this about the Houston Rockets. Rumors are swirling that James Harden was a key cog in the firing of Kevin McHale and he also wants the team to ditch Dwight Howard. Of course, winning cures all as the Rockets, down 21 at one point, came from behind to win at Portland, 119-105, last night. Harden went off for 46. Despite the disfunction, Houston has covered all three games since the All-Star break and remains a half game ahead of Utah for the 8th seed in the Western Conference.


“It’s really bad for the locker room dynamic,” a person familiar with the situation told CBS Sports. “If everybody knows that James Harden can fire you or trade you, are you going to pass the ball to Dwight or are you going to pass the ball to James Harden?”

NBA Handicapping: Clippers quietly getting it done on defensive end

Good article about the changes made by the Los Angeles Clippers who following a rough start to the season have boasted one of the league's best defensive units. Nearly 58% of their games have gone under the total this season.


In the first 15 games of the season, the Clippers’ defensive rating was 104.0, 23rd in the NBA. In the 42 games since, that number drops all the way to 99.0, the second-best total in the league, trailing only the San Antonio Spurs (96.5).

NBA Handicapping: Denver's Malone peeved about team's lack of defense

02.23.2016     07:21 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Denver head coach Michael Malone hasn't been pleased with his team's defensive effort following the All-Star break as the Nuggets allowed 116 and 121 in losses to Sacramento and Boston, respectively. Denver plays host to the Kings tonight. No line yet due to the questionable status of multiple players.


"Guard your man," Malone said. "Take pride in guarding the ball. Contain the basketball. Anytime I've been around bad defensive teams, it always starts with their inability to guard the basketball. And if the ball lives in your paint, it forces you into rotations that open up the 3-point line. That's two games in a row now that we've given up 10 3s."

"I don't know what happened over break, if guys are still on vacation, but we have come out of the break with no sense of a defensive identity, and that's disappointing. We have to find a way to get that back."

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wiseguy Report: NBA Eastern Conference second half preview

Submitted by Teddy Covers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Last week in this space, I wrote about what I’m expecting from the Western Conference in the eight week stretch between the end of the All-Star Break and the beginning of the playoffs.  This week, I’m going to focus on the East, before my attention turns to March Madness for the next few Wiseguy Reports.

There’s no question that the Eastern Conference is finally getting better after nearly two decades of playing second fiddle to the West.  Since Michael Jordan (and everybody else) left the Bulls following their sixth title in 1998, the Eastern Conference has only won five championships, something the Lakers and Spurs have each done five times by themselves during that span!  Detroit won in 2004, Miami won in 2006, 2012 and 2013 and Boston won in 2008.

And from all indications in the betting markets, the East isn’t very likely to win a title this year either.  Cleveland is the only team in the East priced at less than 15-1 to reach the Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves at Memphis Grizzlies

Minnesota at Memphis -4.5 O/U 205
Recommendation: Over


Remember when the Grizzlies were a grind-it-out, halfcourt team that won games with elite defensive efforts?  The betting markets remember those days too!  Heck the Grizz were one of the slowest paced teams in the NBA on offense and one of the most efficient NBA teams on defense for the better part of the last five years.

But all that has changed here in 2016, and it changed even more at the trading deadline.  A sluggish halfcourt offense has transformed into a push-the-pace-in-transition offense.  A dismal three point shooting team that ranked 29 out of 30 NBA teams in three point shots made last year has suddenly become willing to jack up all kinds of shots from downtown.

The Grizzlies have lost low post defensive stud Marc Gasol to injury.  After dealing away Jeff Green and Courtney Lee at the trading deadline, embattled head coach Dave Joerger must adjust his defensive rotations, rotations which have underachieved throughout the course of the 2015-16 campaign – the Grizzlies are a middle of the pack defensive team, currently ranked #15 in Read more

NBA Handicapping: Kings continue to not disappoint, abruptly fire George Karl's go-to assistant

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
It's your world, Sacramento Kings. We're just happy to be along for the ride. Prior to the All-Star break, we broke down what had been an absolutely crazy four-week stretch that involved playoff talk, a 1-8 slide, George Karl getting fired, and then George Karl not getting fire. As if not content to let a week go by without some sort of drama, GM Vlade Divac up and fired offensive assistant Vance Walberg, citing the team needed a shakeup. Karl said he was “disappointed and confused” by the move. Can you imagine what this team is going to be like the last month of the season when they're 15 games below .500 and out of the playoff hunt?


"Obviously (Karl) didn't like it," Divac said, according to The Bee. "But I felt like we had to do something to shake things up."

“Vance is a guy who has been intellectually influential in my thoughts on basketball, probably in my top 10,” Karl said. “He’s that good, he’s that talented, he’s brilliant in a lot of ways ...

NBA Gambling: Golden State Warriors -160 favorites to hit 73 or more wins

Westgate oddsmakers Jeff Sherman tweeted out this NBA prop bet yesterday: Will the Golden State Warriors win 73 or more games? Sherman priced the "yes" at -160 and "no" at +140. The Warriors are currently 48-4 and have 30 games remaining. They'll need to go 25-5 to hit the 73-win mark. Friday's game at Portland starts a six-game road trip for Golden State. Their remaining schedule features six back-to-backs spots and seven games (3 at home, 4 on the road) against the Clippers, Thunder, and Spurs.
