NBA Gambling News: Houston Rockets on the brink of implosion

02.26.2016     08:04 AM     Printer Friendly
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

02.22.2016     09:02 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
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

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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

02.17.2016     07:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
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.

NHL Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Buffalo Sabes at Ottawa Senators

Buffalo at Ottawa -145 O/U 5.5
Recommendation: Over


Two Atlantic Division clubs battle in the Canadian capital as the Ottawa Senators host the Buffalo Sabres tonight. Both clubs have fallen on hard times as of late with the Senators losing six of their last eight contests. The addition of defenseman Dion Phaneuf hasn't helped with their blueline issues as Ottawa's opponents have scored three or more goals in 12 of its last 15 games. Their penalty killing unit is dead last in the NHL having allowed 48 goals thus far in the season, and their 181 goals allowed overall is also a league-worst. Buffalo has lost seven of its last 11 games overall and will be without forward Evander Kane, who is scratched due to oversleeping and missing practice after partying on Sunday after the NBA All-Star Game in Toronto. His benching obviously hurts what has been an inconsistent offense. Ironically enough, the Sabres have been outshot in each of their wins dating all the way back to December 14th. Ottawa has gone over the total in seven of its last 10 games while the Sabres are currently on a 3-1 O/U. Even with Kane out, the defenses for both squads is suspect enough to Read more
