NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Toronto Raptors at Houston Rockets

Toronto pk at Houston O/U 212
Recommendation: Toronto


It’s not hard to make a case for betting against the Houston Rockets in any pointspread range where they’ll need to win the game in order to cover the number.  It’s been a long, disappointing season for the JB Bickerstaff’s squad, fighting for the #8 seed in the West just one year after reaching the Western Conference Finals.

Wednesday Night’s home loss to Utah was the latest frustrating defeat for Houston, as they blew an 18 point second half lead, losing on a last second dunk by Derrick Favors.  The loss marked Houston’s third consecutive defeat, and fifth in their last seven games.  Their only two wins during this two week span have come against lowly Minnesota (they still didn’t cover the spread in victory) and Memphis when the Grizzlies had only one starter healthy enough to play.  This is not a confident team; nor are they a good team.  Bickerstaff’s post-game quote following the meltdown against the Jazz  didn’t inspire much confidence in this bettor either: “The season’s not over Read more

NBA Handicapping: Atlanta Hawks getting by with defense

03.23.2016     08:17 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Good article on the differences from last year's 60-win Atlanta Hawks squad to this year's group which is currently tied for the fourth seed in the Eastern Conference. The Hawks have taken a step back offensively but quietly boast the second-best defensive efficiency rating in the league.

2015-16
Offensive Efficiency: 103.1 (15th)
Defensive Efficiency: 98.9 (2nd)


2014-15
Offensive Efficiency: 106.2 (6th)
Defensive Efficiency: 100.7 (7th)


"Our offense hasn't been there, so our defense has had to be better," Korver said. "There has been growth in the team because of that realization. And now we're starting to figure some things out offensively. I think we peaked too early last year. Hopefully this year, our best basketball is ahead of us."

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves at Phoenix Suns

Minnesota at Phoenix pk O/U 221.5
Recommendation: Over


Most recent games played by each of these young teams showcased the positive strides that they are making. For Minnesota it was an improbable 99-96 road win over Oklahoma City as +12 point underdogs which gives them a three spread covers in their last four games. In the Suns case, it was a 123-116 loss at Golden State in a game where Phoenix held a 4Q lead as +19 point underdogs. That was the second game since a 21 game injury absence for Suns starting PG Brandon Knight and he had 30 points including seven three pointers. Even though Knight admitted after the game that he’s not there yet, his return makes Phoenix noticeably different offensively. With Knight boosting the perimeter offense and HC Earl Watson’s commitment to feeding the ball inside to 7-1 PF Alex Len (10-of-18, 26 points vs GS), Phoenix is developing a balanced half court attack to go along with their up tempo style. The bench has been strengthened by Knight’s return as well. Meanwhile, Minnesota is much further along with their offensive development as the duo of rookie C Karl Anthony Towns and SF Andrew Wiggins Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Phoenix Suns at Orlando Magic

Phoenix at Orlando -13.5 O/U 215.5
Recommendation: Orlando


Sometimes a write-up is better in graphic form.  I’m going to open this write-up with a chart, detailing the Phoenix Suns on the road since their last road win – at Chicago on December 3rd.

copy_suns.JPG

That’s not just a bad track record.  That’s an off-the-charts bad track record for a hopeless, injury riddled team that is now 3-30 SU in their last 33 games.  It’s surely worth noting that MOST of the losses listed above came without the opponent even taking the Suns seriously, often resting starters against this sorry squad.

When the Suns meet adversity on the highway, they’ve done one thing consistently for the last three months – they crumble like a house of cards.  With an interim, lame duck head coach in Earl Watson, it’s hard to picture a legitimate character change for the Suns in hostile environments down the stretch.

Scott Skiles Magic have notched double digit wins in each of their last two home games.  They’ve got a West Coast road trip just ahead, Read more

NBA Gambling: Oklahoma City Thunder make strong case for Meltdown of the Year

03.03.2016     08:44 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Despite a win probability hovering around 99% and a 17-point lead at the start of the fourth quarter, the Oklahoma City Thunder managed to lose last night's game to the Los Angeles Clippers -- by five!!! It's actually pretty amazing that even without playing a lick of defense this season and Billy "I'm in way over my head" Donovan patrolling the sideline, the Thunder are 42-19. That said, things sound really messy right now and there's no time for feeling sad with a trip to Golden State tonight. Interesting that Steph Curry was upgraded from questionable to probable but the betting markets still grabbed OKC plus the points. The Warriors opened -8.5 and are now -7.5 at most offshore shops.


“I think the biggest thing we need to do is make a decision, collectively as a group, from an accountability standpoint, of what type of team we want to be. In order to do that, there has to be a high level of sacrifice by everybody.”

“We’re fooling ourselves if we want to be a great team the way that we’re

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls continue to be a mess defensively

03.02.2016     08:30 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Whoa. Did you know the Chicago Bulls have allowed 100+ points in 14 straight games -- technically 13 out their last 14 if you count Utah's 93 in regulation. Last night was a gem of a performance as Miami shot 67% from the floor en route to a 129-111 win. During this span of defensive ineptitude, the Bulls are 4-10 SU and 5-9 ATS. They are also currently a half game out of the Eastern Conference playoffs -- but only two games out of the fifth seed. Second night of back-to-backs tonight as the Bulls are +4 at Orlando.


"We seem to play harder defensively in our practices," Hoiberg said. "And we got to carry that over into the games. Again, we seem to get deflated when the adversity hits us, when things go well for the other team. For whatever reason we don't get tougher during those stretches and that's what you have to do when that adversity hits."
