NBA Betting Update: Suns' situation goes from bad to indescribably horrific

01.04.2016     09:02 AM     Printer Friendly
UPDATE

Oh, man. The 76ers, Kings, Bulls...they got NOTHING on the Phoenix Suns. This is one hell of a dumpster fire and no one seems to be wanting to use a fire extinguisher. They've lost nine straight including a 142-119 loss to Sacramento and last night's 97-77 loss to the Lakers. Maybe 9 of their next 11 against the Eastern Conference will help. Or maybe not considering Indiana (twice), Boston, Atlanta, Miami, and Cleveland are all well above .500. Next up is a home tilt vs. Charlotte on Wednesday.


“When Ls keep getting piled on top of you, it’s like more weight on your back,” Price said. “We need a win to get that weight off of our back.”

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls continue to underachieve against the spread

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
A lot going on with the Chicago Bulls these days. First there were reports of Jimmy Butler calling out first-year head coach Fred Hoiberg. Now there's talk Butler and Derrick Rose are having a difficult time coexisting. The team’s play on the court has been far from spectacular as the Bulls bookended a recent four-game winning streak with three-game and 2-4 skids. Interesting that in last night's win and cover over Toronto, Rose had one of his better games of the season (20 points, 3-of-5 3-pointers) whereas Butler finished 2-of-7 from the floor with five points. Overall, Chicago sits a respectable 17-12 but league-worst 11-18 ATS. They play host to Indiana tomorrow night.

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Milwaukee Bucks at Dallas Mavericks

Milwaukee at Dallas -6.5 O/U 201.5
Recommendation: Over


Style dynamic has changed for the Mavs over the past couple of games with the absence of starting PG Deron Williams (hamstring) and the insertion of backup J.J. Barea. Barea’s constant attacking, up-tempo mentality has resulted in a pair of monster individual efforts and 118.5 points per game for Dallas. If we exclude the overtime session in their 119-118 win at Brooklyn on Friday night, Dallas games have produced 216 and 229 total points with Barea running the offense. Tonight’s matchup versus the methodical and size advantaged Milwaukee Bucks figures to be another where Barea pushes pace again. Half court sets could be somewhat difficult for the smallish Dallas guard trio of Barea, Raymond Felton and Devin Harris who will be opposed by 6-6 Michael Carter-Williams, 6-7 Khris Middleton and 6-5 O.J. Mayo. The offensive fundamentals in the matchup seem to work for each side as the Mavs quick tempo and front court shooting of SF Chandler Parsons and PF Dirk Nowitzki are conducive to point production as are the height and size advantages all over the floor for Milwaukee.

NBA Handicapping: Phoenix Suns on the brink of imploding following loss to 76ers

12.28.2015     08:03 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
The Phoenix Suns (12-20) have lost six of their last seven including an embarrassing 111-104 home loss to Philadelphia on Saturday. Head coach Jeff Hornacek managed to keep his job but a couple of assistants were shown the door. The Suns play host to Cleveland tonight as +8.5 underdogs. 


"Pretty embarrassing, point blank, period," Suns forward P.J. Tucker told the Arizona Republic on Saturday night.

"If something doesn't change quick, it could get really ugly, really fast."

"Obviously, it's probably a low point for us," Hornacek told reporters after the game. "Now the confidence is lacking."

NBA Handicapper Free Pick: Portland Trail Blazers at Atlanta Hawks

Portland at Atlanta -7 O/U 203.5
Recommendation: Atlanta


Atlanta is starting to heat up again winning and covering three straight which makes this a challenge for Portland. What makes it a difficult challenge is the fact that each of the Blazers' starting guards are hurt entering this contest. Damian Lillard (plantar fasciitis) and C.J. McCollum (ankle) seem likely to play despite the injuries but a definitive “go” has not been issued for either yet. Playing on back-to-back days isn’t helpful for either of Portland’s top scorers since their health issues only really heal with rest. McCollum’s fourth quarter ankle injury versus Miami yesterday left him visibly hobbled the rest of the game so having to come right back for 35-38 minutes here figures to be tough. The backcourt matchups in this game are not favorable to guys with foot and ankle problems as Atlanta's Jeff Teague is as quick as any point guard in the league and chasing sharp shooting Kyle Korver through screens all night is difficult too. Add in the youth and quickness of Atlanta backup point guard Dennis Schroeder and you can start to project a long night Read more

NBA Handicapping: Golden State Warriors in revenge mode vs. Milwaukee

12.18.2015     10:53 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
After winning and justifiably celebrating their win over Golden State, the Milwaukee Bucks are apparently in the Warriors' crosshairs as the two teams meet again in Oakland tonight. Oddsmakers and the betting markets aren't messing around with Golden State opening -18 and bet up to -19 across the board.


"Oh, it was a nice celebration. We do remember that stuff," reigning MVP Stephen Curry said Wednesday night after a 128-103 win over the Phoenix Suns. "We were kind of laughing at some of the stuff going on. It was a big game for them. Friday will be a big game for us."

"There's nothing wrong with the dunk, but the stare-down, trying to talk nasty in the game like that," Thompson said. "And it's like, 'All right, you're going to see us next Friday and in our building, too.'"

NBA Handicapping: Washington Wizards can't guard against the three

12.16.2015     09:33 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Here's a stat that you would think has nowhere to go but down. The Washington Wizards are allowing 41% from three this season. In recent seasons, the worst teams allowed around 38%. The last team to allow over 40% for a season was the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers who finished 19-63. Last season, the Wizards were around league average at 35% allowed. Tonight's opponent, the San Antonio Spurs don't take a lot of threes (19 per game) but they make them at a high clip (37%, 4th in the league).


“We’d set an NBA record if they stopped the league today,” Wizards point guard John Wall said after practice at a local church in San Antonio Tuesday. “And it’s all about simple stuff, man. Overhelping, doing too much when you don’t have to. You need to have the IQ to read certain things.”

“It starts defensively with us on the ball,” Wizards Coach Randy Wittman said. “When we get broken down and collapse the defense, that’s where we get hurt with the

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Houston Rockets at Denver Nuggets

Houston -4 at Denver O/U 209.5
Recommendation: Houston


NBA starting lineups and rotations can often create a delicate balance between winning and losing. There’s probably no better current example of that than the Houston Rockets who are now playing the best basketball they’ve played all season. Houston’s offseason acquisition of speedy guard Ty Lawson was expected to increase and improve an already high tempo, high scoring offense. Instead, the insertion of Lawson into the lineup seemed to disrupt rather than enhance. The team’s mediocre performance was a key ingredient in the early season firing of Kevin McHale and the subsequent negative chatter about the novice like ability of new coach J.B. Bickerstaff. Then, nine games ago Bickerstaff made a starting lineup switch going back to the old look with Patrick Beverly at point guard. That subtle change has turned into a 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATS run and it has quieted a portion of Bickerstaff’s critics. Beverly’s positive influence on Houston’s starting lineup chemistry is undeniable as his hounding defense, 3-point shooting, and floor leadership are all elements the Read more
