NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Denver Nuggets at Chicago Bulls

03.21.2018     11:20 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Denver -9.5 at Chicago O/U 217.5
Recommendation: Denver

The Denver Nuggets have struggled to bring their A-game against weaker foes all year. Already on this 0-2 road trip, Mike Malone’s squad has lost at Memphis, allowing the Grizzlies to snap their 19 game losing streak in the process. The Nuggets have also lost SU at Dallas, at home to Phoenix at home to Atlanta and at Sacramento since the calendar turned to 2018; all as bigger favorites against lottery bound competition.

So what makes tonight’s game different? Two things. First, it’s legitimately ‘circle-the-wagons’ time for this road favorite, as they’ve fallen two games out of the #8 seed in the West in a tight playoff chase. Despite being out of the playoffs if they started today, Denver is only 4 games in the loss column away from hosting a first round series! They are in Game 3 of a seven game road trip – their next home game won’t be until April. Coach Malone, talking about tonight’s game: “Effort, fight, urgency ... cannot be words that we're talking about.” Expect a focused effort from the Nuggets Read more

College Basketball Betting Free Play: UNC Asheville at USC Trojans

UNC Asheville +16.5 at USC O/U 152
Recommendation: UNC Asheville

Sometimes, power ratings, pointspreads, and matchups don't mean a thing in these secondary tournaments. Two of the biggest factors come down to travel and motivation. Both factors are pulling against one another in tonight's UNC-Asheville-USC matchup. The Bulldogs, who won the Big South regular season, will make the cross country trek to Los Angeles. Meanwhile, the Trojans were arguably the most deserving team to not get into the NCAA Tournament and are justifiably upset.

“The feeling is the same,’ Enfield said of frustration held over from Sunday’s bracket reveal. “It doesn’t go away in a day. Because we should be in the NCAA Tournament. We deserve to be, and we’re one of the best at-large teams out there.”

Enfield went as far as to say he may sit players who are not 100 percent healthy and/or could risk injury and thus damage their stock as a pro prospect. And by all accounts, if it was up to Enfield and his players, they would have passed on the NIT bid. USC is talented enough to beat Asheville Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Charlotte Hornets at Washington Wizards

Charlotte at Washington -3.5 O/U 212.5
Recommendation: Washington

There’s a lot to like about the Washington Wizards right now. The markets devalued the Wizards immediately after star point guard John Wall got hurt. Since Wall’s injury, Tomas Satoransky and Tim Frazier have gotten the job done at the point in his absence; a duo that combined for 19 points, eight rebounds and 10 assists without a single turnover in the Wizards outright upset victory at Cleveland last night.

Wins and covers have been the norm, not the exception for Scott Brooks squad of late. They’ve gone 8-2 SU, 8-2 ATS since Wall’s injury. And both losses deserve an asterisk – they lost in OT against the top notch Celtics and on the second night of back-2-backs at surging Philly. Last night’s win at Cleveland was just one outright upset during this span. They also beat Toronto and OKC as home dogs during this recent span of excellence.

The advanced metric numbers show that Washington’s current surge is no accident. Both their offensive and defensive stats have improved since Wall’s injury; most notably Read more

Daily Fantasy Sports' moment appears to have passed

02.15.2018     08:47 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
According to one report, the future of Daily Fantasy Sports doesn't sound all that promising.

 "International expansion may provide room for minor incremental growth, and there’s always a number of customers who weren’t legally able to play real-money DFS last year due to age restrictions that can now, but those sources aren’t anywhere near enough to get the two companies back on the growth track."

Looking at Google Trends search volume for "daily fantasy sports," traffic was significantly lower in 2017 than it was in 2016, which Eilers & Krejcik Gaming says indicates a decline in interest among new customers. It believes that the downward trend will continue into 2018.
