NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Sacramento Kings at Phoenix Suns

Sacramento +6 at Phoenix O/U 218.5
Recommendation: Sacramento


Pair of non-playoff teams with different perceptions on how they’re approaching these meaningless final games. Phoenix is a team people see as still giving effort while Sacramento is a disgruntled group that can’t wait for the season to end. To some extent, that’s why Phoenix is favored by any amount in this matchup and the -6 that we see right now has the absence of Kings top player DeMarcus Cousins tacked on to it. The Suns have a key injury of their own as Archie Goodwin who has played very well down the stretch is expected to miss tonight’s game. That leaves Phoenix with just one PG (Ronnie Price) and puts the Suns' backcourt at a distinct disadvantage in this game. Rajon Rondo should play tonight but even if he doesn’t, the combination of Darren Collison (27 pts yesterday), Seth Curry (averagining 17.0 pts L5G) plus shooting guards James Anderson and Ben McLemore gives Sacramento four guards who are playing hard and will own talent and depth advantages tonight. Phoenix isn’t significantly better than Sacramento at the C position even with Cousins on Read more

NBA Gambling Alert: Spurs and Warriors expect to be at full strength for tonight

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Sounds as if "everyone" will play in tonight's San Antonio-Golden State game. The Warriors can clinch the Western Conference's top seed with a win. They opened as -5 favorites but have since been bet up to -7.


"I think we'll play," Parker said. "Utah, I thought he was going to rest everybody. But we played Utah, so I don't see any reason we're not playing Golden State.

Like I said, before the Utah game, I thought [Popovich] was going to rest everybody," Parker said. "He said he wanted to play. So if we played Utah, I don't see any reason now we're not going to play Golden State. Before, we were going to rest everybody like against Utah and Golden State. But I guess he changed his mind. Everybody's playing now."

"It's a miracle that we have gone this far without sort of hitting a bump in the road, so this is to be expected,"

NBA Gambling News: Golden State Warriors on 3-7 against the spread skid

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
According to Draymond Green, the Golden State Warriors have had about enough of this regular season stuff. Last night, the Warriors lost at home in overtime to woeful Minnesota. They've now failed to cover in seven of their last 10 games. Golden State will need to "win out" in order to reach 73. They play host to San Antonio on Thursday. There have been rumbling both teams may rest various players.


"It's human nature to where, all right, kind of ready for the regular season to end," Green said. "Talking 82 games, we get bored with that after awhile. And that's no excuse, just, I'm always give it to y'all real, and that's about as real as I can be. It's kind of at a point now where you're ready for the regular season to be over."

Green continued, "Now, saying that, we got to be a better enough ballclub to continue to try to get better with these games and try and go into the playoffs the right way and not stumble in the playoffs, so, think that's something we have to focus on. We

NBA Handicapping: Multiple playoff spots still up for grabs

Good article on the NBA Playoff scenarios heading into tonight's action. A lot is left to be determined in the Eastern Conference with Atlanta, Boston, Miami, and Charlotte fighting for the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth seeds. Indiana and Detroit are tied for the seventh and eighth spots with Chicago two games back. Things are just as jumbled in the Western Conference with Memphis, Portland, Dallas, Utah, and Houston all within three games of one another for the last four seeds.

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Detroit Pistons at Chicago Bulls

Detroit at Chicago -2.5 O/U 204.5
Recommendation: Chicago


The Bulls aren’t likely to have Derrick Rose or Taj Gibson available tonight for their showdown with the Pistons.  That’s good news for Bulls bettors, not bad!  Without Rose in the lineup, this pointspread gets deflated into a ‘SU win should equal a pointspread cover’ range.  And the Bulls have certainly proven adept this season at cashing winning bets without one of their key players on the floor.

And Fred Hoiberg’s squad has looked squarely into the depths of the abyss and come out swinging.  Chicago suffered a four game skid at the wrong time, falling 2.5 games out of the final playoff spot in the East, with only nine games remaining.  The Bulls gut check moment came against the Pacers on Tuesday, when they held Indiana scoreless over the last 3+ minutes of gametime and won on a Jimmy Butler jumper with 3.7 seconds left.   They followed that up by rallying from 14 down late in the 3rd quarter to beat Houston on Thursday.

Coach Hoiberg: “I think the biggest thing is those guys went out there and played Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Miami Heat at Sacramento Kings

Miami -6.5 at Sacramento O/U 212
Recommendation: Miami


Sacramento won’t have DeMarcus Cousins this evening thanks to his league leading 16th technical foul for sarcastically clapping following a late foul against the Wizards on Wednesday. And without Cousins, this team doesn’t win on any floor.  When he sat on Monday, the Kings trailed by 25+ all game before a late 16-1 run during garbage time made the final score look more respectable (and gave a brutal beat to Blazers backers).  Cousins sat against Minnesota last week; the Kings lost SU and ATS; again trailing by margin throughout  the second half.  He missed a home game against Orlando earlier in the month, another SU and ATS defeat.

In fact, the Kings are 2-10 SU in the dozen games that Cousins has missed this year, both wins coming against the Bucks on hot shooting nights from the perimeter.  Cousins also missed Sacramento’s first meeting with Miami.  The Kings were red hot that night, shooting at a 51% clip from the floor, including 12-23 shooting from three point range.  The Heat were still up by 16 in the fourth quarter before a Read more

NBA Gambling: Western Conference playoff race heats up

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
In the battle of who wants it more (or less), five teams continue to fight for the final four spots in the Western Conference playoffs. Portland is currently sixth with a two-game lead over Houston, Utah, and Dallas. Bettors should also keep an eye on Memphis who has lost four straight and seen its hold of the fifth seed dwindle to two games. Let's take a look at the remaining schedules for all five teams. Houston has arguably the most favorable slate with its last four games coming against teams not in the playoff hunt.

Memphis: vs. Toronto, at Orlando, vs. Chicago, at Dallas, vs. Golden State, at LA Clippers, at Golden State

Portland: vs. Boston, vs. Miami, at Golden State, at Sacramento, vs. Oklahoma City, vs. Minnesota, vs. Denver

Houston: vs. Chicago, vs. Oklahoma City, at Dallas, vs. Phoenix, vs. LA Lakers, at Minnesota, vs. Sacramento

Utah: vs. Minnesota, at Phoenix, vs. San Antonio, vs. LA Clippers, at Denver, vs. Dallas, at LA Lakers

Dallas: at Detroit, at Minnesota, vs. Houston, vs. Memphis, at LA Clippers, at Utah, vs. San Antonio

NBA Handicapping: Someone has to cover tonight's Bulls-Rockets game

03.31.2016     07:51 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Two games behind Indiana for the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference, the Chicago Bulls have been nothing short of a disaster since the calendar flipped. Both the offense and defense have rapidly declined and it's resulted in one of the worst spread records (31-43 ATS) in the league. Bettors should probably be asking the question: Who wants to win less tonight? The Bulls or Rockets?


"Believe it or not, we work a lot more on defense than on offense," Hoiberg said last week. "There's no question about that. Early in the season, we were a very good defensive team. All the way up until about Jan. 1 and then our numbers completely flipped."

"At some point, we stopped giving the importance that the defense deserves," Gasol said. "We started relying too much on our offense and let our offensive performance affect our defensive effort. It's not unreasonable to expect the same type of effort. It's effort and communication."
