NBA Gambling Alert: Golden State's Curry still questionable for Game 2

04.18.2016     08:45 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Still no word on Stephen Curry's (ankle) official status for tonight's Game 2 matchup vs. Houston. Despite this, the Warriors have taken money (-12.5 to -13.5) but the total was bet down from 221.5 to 218.

Here's Curry's quote from Saturday:

“Right now I don't see a scenario where I'll be out,” said Curry, who turned his right ankle in the second quarter of a Game 1 win over the Rockets (104-78) at Oracle Arena on Saturday. “Obviously, if it's not right and at risk of further injury or whatnot, that's the only thing that I think we have to worry about. Pain tolerance and all that stuff, I kind of know what I can deal with on the court, but you don't want anything more serious to happen favoring an ankle or whatnot. So that's what we'll pay attention to the next few days.”

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks

04.16.2016     07:26 AM     Teddy Covers     Printer Friendly
Submitted by Teddy Covers blog entry.
Boston +5.5 at Atlanta O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Boston

Something pretty remarkable happened on Wednesday Night, in Game 82 of the regular season.  It got overshadowed by Kobe Bryant’s 60-point outing in his final career game, leading the Lakers to a last minute come-from-behind win over Utah.  It got overshadowed by the Warriors winning #73, finishing with the best regular season record in NBA history.  But make no mistake about it – it was meaningful!

The Boston Celtics defense stunk for a good portion of the last two months.  Since the All Star Break, Boston’s D has gone from allowing 99.6 points per 100 possessions up to 104.7 pp/100.  Over their previous eight games, they ranked #19 in the NBA, allowing more than 106 pp/100.  In the first half of Game #82 against Miami, the Celtics defense got lit up once again.  Miami led 62-38 at halftime, on their way to an easy blowout win over Boston.

But something funny happened on the way to that easy win – the Celtics started playing defense at a level we haven’t seen from them for months.  The Heat hit their first Read more

NBA Handicapping: Memphis wants to make a game of it vs. Golden State

04.13.2016     08:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
You wouldn't know it by the pointspread, but the Memphis Grizzlies are going to give it a go tonight against the Golden State Warriors. The Grizzlies have been in free-fall (1-9 run) thanks to a slew of injuries. Meanwhile, the Warriors obviously have something to play for with the NBA's all-time regular season wins record at stake. And the betting markets think they'll get it with ease as the line jumped from -16 to -19.

"It's for history, baby," Joerger said. "We're going to give it our best shot."

"Yeah, the emotional tank is a little bit empty right now," Joerger said.

"You also know that sitting out there 24 hours you've got a chance to be the answer on every Trivial Pursuit card for the next 75 years. We'll see what we're going to do with that tomorrow."

NBA Handicapping: Dallas earns playoff berth, Houston knocking on the door

04.12.2016     07:01 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The NBA regular season concludes on Wednesday. A few things were determined last night like Cleveland notching the top seed in the Eastern Conference and thus Toronto now locked into the second seed. The spots for the third through sixth seeds are still TBD. Indiana is in position for the seventh seed while Detroit looks likely it will be facing the Cavs in the first round.

The top four seeds in the Western Conference have been filled: Golden State, San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Los Angeles Clippers. The remainder of the West is hazy. Portland, Memphis, and Dallas are in but could finish a number of ways. And with Utah losing to the Mavs, Houston now has the inside track on the eighth seed -- assuming the Rockets can beat Sacramento's corpse on Wednesday. If they lose and Utah beats the Lakers, the Jazz get in.
