NBA Postseason Betting Recap: Heat and Warriors bounce back strong

05.09.2013     07:49 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Submitted by Stat Intelligence

Golden State got off the mat from Monday night’s gut punch with a fury...as they dominated the first half on the way to a 9-point road win. Miami reminded everyone why they’re favorites to go the distance, routing Chicago by 37 (and it could have been worse).

Numbers and notes…starting with the more compelling of the two…

Golden State 100, San Antonio 91

2-Point Percentage: Golden State 44%, San Antonio 44%

3-Point Shooting: Golden State 11/23, San Antonio 5/21

Free Throws: Golden State 13/20, San Antonio 16/24

1’s and 2’s: Golden State 67, San Antonio 76

Rebounds: Golden State 50, San Antonio 48

Turnovers: Golden State 9, San Antonio 10

It’s tempting to say that Golden State learned a lesson about protecting a second half lead. But, you know what? They were outscored 48-38 in the second half. They had a LOUSY second half, lowlighted by only 17 points in Read more

Teddy Covers' Las Vegas Wise Guy Report: Durant leads OKC past Memphis in Game 1

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Coming into the playoffs, the odds that backup OKC point guard Derek Fisher would be a defensive difference maker were somewhere between slim and none.   Then Russell Westbrook suffered a season ending injury.  Reggie Jackson, the second year point guard out of Boston College who averaged just 14 minutes of playing time during the regular season, has been promoted to the starting spot.  Fisher, who didn’t even sign with the Thunder until after the All-Star break, got a steady dose of garbage time minutes down the stretch.  He closed out his 24 game regular season stint with OKC averaging just 4.1 points on 33% shooting and 0.7 assists per game.

Fisher’s playoff history is truly a special one, highlighted by his infamous Game 5 buzzer beating three-pointer at San Antonio in Game 5 of the 2004 Western Conference Finals.  That shot is just one of quite literally dozens of huge makes from Fisher from a career that dates all the way back to 1996.  And Fisher hit a pair of impact three pointers in Game 1 against Memphis as well.  But the biggest clutch contribution from a guy with five championship rings on his fingers came Read more

NBA Playoff Betting Recap: Pacers and Thunder take 1-0 series leads

I didn’t get a chance to re-post the regular season statlines before Round Two got started Sunday in the NBA Playoffs. Let’s do a combination report that features those, plus the afternoon boxscores from the first two games of the league quarterfinals.

Let’s start in the East. The format we used during March Madness that helped paint such a good picture for us involved the following stats:

Two-Point Defense

Rebound Differential

Turnover Differential

Made Treys per Game

Pace Ranking

If you believe “defense and rebounding wins championships,” we have those numbers. If you believe that “you have to avoid turnovers” is important when championships are on the line, we have that. If you believe that three-point production is revolutionizing the game, that’s covered. If you believe that playing at your preferred pace while forcing your opponent out of their comfort zone is a hidden key to postseason Read more

NBA Handicapping: Estimated Market Power Ratings for Conference Semifinals

Submitted by Stat Intelligence

We have numbers up in the markets for three of the four second round series. I’ll drop in an estimate for Miami and Chicago. Then we’ll tweak that as needed. I think the market is using 4 points for home court advantage to this point through the playoffs…so I’ll use that as a guideline.

88: Miami

85: San Antonio

84: Memphis

83: New York, Oklahoma City

82: Indiana

81: Golden State

80: Chicago with Deng and Hinrich

78: Chicago without Deng and Hinrich

I have to say I was very surprised when San Antonio opened up around -8 or -8.5 vs. Golden State. I don’t think the Spurs are suddenly chasing down Miami just because they swept the shorthanded Lakers. I don’t think Golden State is light years behind the rest of the West either. We’ll see. I’ve used 85 and 81 as a starting point. Maybe the Golden State media is right that this is a much worse matchup talent-wise for Read more

A fascinating Friday night quadruple-header of Game Sixes resulted in NO Game Sevens for Sunday, as the 3-2 leaders all sealed their respective deals. We talked about the games out East in our earlier post. We wrap up the evening with a look at the two Western Conference finals.

Oklahoma City 103, Houston 94

2-Point Percentage: Oklahoma City 48%, Houston 39%

3-Point Shooting: Oklahoma City 11/27, Houston 14/32

Free Throws: Oklahoma City 16/16, Houston 20/31

1’s and 2’s: Oklahoma City 70, Houston 52

Rebounds: Oklahoma City 41, Houston 43

Turnovers: Oklahoma City 10, Houston 15

A few quick notes…

*Jeremy Lin was always going to be overmatched in this series because he’s slower than people realize, and his shot comes and goes (mostly goes vs. quality opposition). His injury was a blessing because it put better athletes on the floor. He’s a great kid…and worth Read more

NBA Playoff Betting Recap: Celtics get hot from three, force Game 6 vs. Knicks

I didn’t get a chance to watch Game Six of Boston/New York Wednesday night. I was following along the commentary on twitter. Sounded like the ultimate gut check performance from the valiant if aging Celtics, and a very lame no-show from the arrogant Knicks who shouldn’t have been talking trash.

Somehow…NOBODY SEEMED TO NOTICE THIS...

Three Pointers: Boston 11/22, New York 5/22

I can only talk about the people I follow…so maybe there were places that made this a big story. But…how can Boston fans watch that game and see guts and glory rather than a team shooting way over its head on treys? The Celtics won scoreboard by two treys…with a boxscore edge of six treys…in a stat they would normally be expected to lose handily.

So…give them credit for showing up, playing hard, and continuing to battle. Just keep this sequence in mind.

The most entertaining series of the first round what was mostly its first dud. Golden State did rally to give Nuggets fans some nausea…and rallied enough to give Nuggets bettors a punch in the gut as Denver (-8) gagged a big lead in a 107-100 finish.

Dog players who lost New Jersey in a million overtimes this past weekend felt that was owed them. Golden State has topped expectations in all five games in this series. We’ve had some fairly consistent tendencies through the five games. Let’s take a look at that.

Series: Golden State leads 3-2 even though an extra game was in Denver

Two-Point Shooting: Golden State leads 4-1

Three-Point Makes: Golden State leads 5-0 (combined 52-35)

Free Throw Makes: Denver leads 5-0 (combined 117-79, yes +38!)

Rebounds: Golden State leads 3-2 (combined +16)

Turnovers: Denver leads 4-1 (combined +9)

1’s and 2’s: Denver leads 5-0 (combined +31)

Online poker a reality for Nevada gamblers

SportsMemo.com blog entry.
If you are a resident of the great state of Nevada then quit reading this blog and go have yourself some fun playing legalized online poker. No joke.


It is “a momentous day for the state and a testament not only to Ultimate and the board and (gaming) commission but also to the governor for getting a bill through so fast,” Burnett said, referring to the quick approval of a bill to allow Internet poker play in Nevada.
