NBA Handicapping: Harden returns to OKC, Thunder a 9-point favorite

11.28.2012     06:17 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Houston at Oklahoma City -9 O/U 207.5

James Harden returns to face his former team Oklahoma City tonight. The Houston guard was adamant about saying it is just another game. The Thunder are off to a strong 11-4 start and have covered five of their last six games. The Rockets have won and covered three straight.

“I’m on the road trying to get a win,” Harden said Tuesday. “That’s no different than when we played at Memphis or Atlanta or whatever the case may be.”

“He’s going to be in a different zone,” Cook said. “At the end of the day, if anybody knows, I know this game means a lot to him. He’s going to want to play his best basketball. This game means so much right now to him. You’re going to see a different mindset with him.

NBA Handicapper Free Play: Cleveland Cavaliers at Memphis Grizzlies

Cleveland +12 at Memphis O/U 194.5
Recommendation: Cleveland

This is the epitome of a flat spot for the Memphis Grizzlies.  Memphis has been as good as any team in the NBA through the first four weeks of the season.  Lionel Hollins’ squad enters tonight’s game with a 9-2 SU, 9-2 ATS mark.  They’re coming off a very satisfying win over the Lakers, after having already knocked off the likes of New York, Oklahoma City and Miami in the last two weeks. 

The Grizzlies have been off for a couple of days, and now face the Cavs, Raptors and Pistons in their next three ballgames, all at home; teams with a combined 9-32 SU record this year – teams the Grizzlies know full well that they can beat.  It sets up for a lethargic performance for a team that isn’t used to this pointspread range – they haven’t been favored by more than seven points in any previous game this season and only two of their nine wins have come by more Read more

NBA Betting Trends: San Antonio Spurs in tough spot after last night's OT win

11.26.2012     11:17 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
San Antonio -5.5 at Washington O/U 192.5

Strong betting trend at work tonight in the NBA with the San Antonio Spurs traveling to Washington. Since 2000, teams off overtime wins are 31-21 SU and 21-41-1 ATS when playing the following night as a favorite. On Sunday, the Spurs beat Toronto 111-106 in double OT. Tonight also marks San Antonio's four road game in six days. Head coach Gregg Popovich is noted for giving some of his veterans rest when fatigued. Tony Parker played 46 minutes against the Raptors while Tim Duncan logged 41 minutes (he played 40+ minutes only twice last season). The Spurs opened as an 8-point favorite but have been bet down to -5.5.

NBA Betting News: Possible lineup changes for Chicago Bulls

11.23.2012     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Chicago's "circus trip" started out strong with an overtime win against Phoenix. But the Bulls then dropped three straight (0-3 ATS) and find themselves 5-6 on the year. They also sport the league's worst against the spread record at 2-9. According to head coach Tom Thibodeau changes to the starting lineup may be forthcoming. The team travels to Milwaukee on Saturday.

“We’ll see,’’ Thibodeau said when asked if a new lineup was a possibility. “I’m looking at a lot of things.’’

“The defense is not what it used to be,’’ center Joakim Noah said. “It’s not where it was last year, that’s for sure. We’ve got to do better. We just got to do better. Losing three in a row is unacceptable. We’re better than that.

“We’ve just got to trust each other a little bit more on the court. We’ve got to play together a little bit more. We’re a team that’s always been great at Read more

NBA Gambling News: Cleveland loses Irving for at least a month

11.20.2012     08:40 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
It's been a rough start to the season for the Cleveland Cavaliers with just two wins in 10 tries and a 4-6 mark against the spread. They'll be without their best play Kyrie Irving who will miss at least a month with a broken finger. Rookie Dion Waiters could move over to the point. A week ago, head coach Byron Scott considered shortening his rotation due to a lack of production from the bench. They don't have the option now. During a recent six-game road trip, the Cavs allowed 106.5 ppg. The bench had a collective point differential of -228.  The Cavs play host to Philadelphia on Wednesday.

NBA Handicapping: Chicago Bulls not playing up to snuff defensively

11.20.2012     07:43 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Uncharacteristically, the Chicago Bulls have allowed 100 points or more in four straight games – one of which came in overtime. The Bulls allowed 100 points or more in regulation only 12 times last season.

“The defense right now, the intensity, we got to get that part right,” a frustrated Thibodeau said. “We got to get that right. The rebounding’s not good, the turnovers … so the defense the rebounding and the turnovers, all three are a problem right now so we got to correct that. Those three things put you in position to win. Then the inside out and sharing the ball. So we got to correct that.”

"We got to learn to put stops together," Deng said. "I don't like comparing teams but that's what we did well last year. The second unit just came in and got stops in a row. Everyone talks about offense, but it's the defense and the stops we got. That's how we win games, that's what we got to get back to."

College Basketball Betting Free Play: Washington Huskies vs. Ohio State Buckeyes

Washington vs. Ohio State -8.5 O/U 143
Recommendation: Ohio State

I think Washington is walking into a buzz saw against Ohio State this afternoon. The Huskies lost two NBA draft picks, don't have a lot of depth, and are still trying to figure out their identity. Lorenzo Romar had said that this year's team would be much more focused on defense. That may be the case down the road but after nearly blowing 16-point halftime lead to Seton Hall as well as dropping a home game to Albany prior to the trip east, it is clear that the Huskies aren't ready for primetime. Note that Seton Hall and Albany combined to shoot a staggering 19-of-42 from three-point land. Ohio State didn't play particularly well in its 69-58 win over Rhode Island but the reason for the trip was to face the Huskies and the Buckeyes are the far superior team defensively. OSU grabbed money the second the lines popped up this morning. I agree with the move. Lay the points.

NBA Handicapping: Minnesota down to nine players vs. Charlotte

11.14.2012     01:26 PM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Charlotte at Minnesota -7 O/U 183

Due to injuries, the Minnesota Timberwolves are expected to have only nine active players for tonight's game against Charlotte. The T-Wolves opened -8.5 but have been bet down to -7. The total was also hit down from 187 to as low as 182.5.

"They tell me who's going to play, and you coach those people," Adelman said after the Wolves' shootaround practice Wednesday. "I hope we get some guys back on Friday, but I don't want to anticipate that. I might get disappointed."
