NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Atlanta Hawks at Indiana Pacers

Atlanta at Indiana -8.5 O/U 212
Recommendation: Indiana

It’s circle the wagons time in Indianapolis tonight as the hungry Pacers take on the bottom-feeder Hawks. Indiana is coming off a humiliating home loss to Utah on Wednesday Night; a 20 point defeat in which Nate McMillan’s squad hit only 3-23 from three point range while allowing the Jazz to hit better than 51% from the floor. The Pacers lost at Atlanta just last week in a flat, lethargic effort. And the quotes coming out of this locker room have bet-on written all over them.

Pacers center Myles Turner, their lone offensive bright spot in the loss to Utah: “It's a game we got to take personally. We're at home. We just got beat by 20 at our crib, that can't happen. We got to take that frustration into this game."

Pacers forward Trevor Booker noted what happened last week: “If you look at Atlanta, they are at the bottom, but you have to overlook that because they've been actually playing well lately. They've been moving the ball well and they beat us last time we played them. So we're going to be coming out and trying to avenge that Read more

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Toronto Raptors at Detroit Pistons

Toronto -5 at Detroit O/U 212.5
Recommendation: Toronto

The call the Pistons the biggest disappointment in the East since the Blake Griffin trade would not be an overstatement.  And yes, that includes the ‘pointspread freefaller’ Cleveland Cavaliers; a team that just annihilated the Pistons by 20 in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score might indicate – a complete blowout after halftime.

The results do not lie.  Detroit is now 2-9 SU in their last 11 ballgames, including three SU and ATS losses – all by double digit margins -- right here at Little Caesars Arena.  They’ve dropped 4.5 games out of the playoff picture in the East.  They’re also in the midst of a brutal scheduling run, playing their eighth game in 14 days with a pair of back-2-backs in the mix.  This is a tired team, lacking in confidence and lacking much of a home court edge these Read more

NBA Gambling News: Chicago Bulls claim hilarious lineups based on player rest not taking

03.07.2018     08:37 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
Looks like the NBA reached out to the Chicago Bulls about some of the painfully obvious tank-esque lineups they've been using. The Bulls countered by saying some of their vets need some rest. Since the All-Star break, the Bulls are 1-5 SU, 2-4 ATS. Their lone win came against fellow tankee, Dallas.

"After the All-Star break, we had communication with the league office about Robin and Justin's roles," said Bulls executive vice president John Paxson. "After healthy dialogue, the league determined that their situations fall into the 'player rest' policy. We respect the communication and cooperative dialogue with the league and will adhere to their recommendations going forward."

NBA Handicapping: With no reason to tank, Lakers have been great to bettors

03.05.2018     08:56 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
With no reason to tank, the Los Angeles Lakers have been the hottest ATS team in the NBA over the last two months. Since January 7, the Lakers are 17-7 SU and 18-6 ATS. We saw a somewhat similar situation last year with the Brooklyn Nets. The Nets won half of their games the last month of the season; a respectable 10-11 SU and impressive 15-6 ATS. The Lakers are +2 home underdogs vs. Portland tonight.

“They’re growing up really quickly,” Coach Luke Walton said. “We see it happening and we’re excited about it. But the fact they just keep finding a way, it takes a team that believes in each other to do what they’ve done.”

“It means that we’re moving on to the right direction,” Kuzma said. “Means that we’re growing as a group. It’s been a long season, up and down. From losing nine straight to being one of the hottest teams in the league right now.”

NBA Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Minnesota Timberwolves at Utah Jazz

Minnesota at Utah -7 O/U 208
Recommendation: Utah

Utah went into the All-Star break on a season high ten game winning streak. They’ve come out of the break with some real clunkers, blown off the floor in a 19-point home loss to the Blazers, unable to extend their margin against the hapless Mavericks and struggling throughout an 11-point home loss to the Rockets.

Big man Derrick Favors, following the latest loss: “I definitely think there’s some rust from the all-star break. But it’s easy to fix. We have to improve on communication, on both ends of the floor. We have to improve on little things. But all of our issues, they are easy to fix.”

I concur wholeheartedly. Utah’s defense ranks #2 in the NBA since the All Star Break, allowing just 96.5 PP/100. But their offense has struggled mightily, just 90.7 PP/100; dead last in the NBA during that span. A big problem has been their inability to handle the basketball, dead last in the NBA in turnover percentage since the Break.

First, I don’t expect this to be a long term problem for the Jazz. Head coach Quin Synder, Read more

College Basketball Handicapping: Rule changes announced for NIT

03.02.2018     09:16 AM     Printer Friendly blog entry.
The NCAA announced four rule changes for the upcoming NIT.

​• The three-point line will be extended by approximately 1 foot 8 inches to the same distance used by FIBA for international competition (22 feet 1.75 inches).
​• The free throw lane will be widened from 12 feet to 16 feet, consistent with the width used by the NBA.
​• The games will be divided into four 10-minute quarters as opposed to two 20-minute halves. Teams will shoot two free throws beginning with the fifth foul of each quarter.
• The shot clock will reset to 20 seconds after an offensive rebound instead of the full 30 seconds.

“The style of play in men’s college basketball is healthy and appealing, but the leadership governing the game is interested in keeping the playing rules contemporary and trending favorably,” said Dan Gavitt, NCAA senior vice president of basketball. “Experimenting with two significant court dimension rules, a shot-clock reset rule and a game-format rule all have some level of
