Western Conference Finals: Warriors vs Mavs Series Odds and Expert Betting Predictions
by Sean Barnard - 5/17/2022
In a somewhat surprising matchup, the Golden State Warriors are set to face off against the Dallas Mavericks in the Western Conference Finals. The Warriors, who have won three championships in the past seven years, are no strangers to this elite level of basketball. They are listed as -225 favorites in the series and are 5-point favorites in the opening matchup. On the other hand, the Mavericks have not made it to the conference finals since the 2010-11 season, when they won the championship behind Dirk Nowitzki’s heroic effort.
Early Value in 2022 NBA Finals MVP Odds
by Sean Barnard - 4/27/2022
The NBA Playoffs are in full swing, with teams beginning to be sent home for the offseason. There is still plenty of time to cash in on potential profits with many future bets still holding value. There is a clearer picture of matchups and schedules of the remaining teams, so capitalizing on future bets for the remainder of the postseason is a sound plan. One prop bet that often does not get enough attention is the Finals MVP.¬

by Scott Spreitzer - 3/29/2022
It has been a terrific season in the NBA, as I have gone 77-49, 62% ATS since late October and am up $10,740 as I write this article on March 28, 2022. I’ll get to some adjustments and changes I made before this season began later in the article.

2022 NBA Championship Odds and Expert Predictions
by Josh Weil - 1/16/2022
As we approach the All-Star Break, we must first get through the dog days of January. In basketball, it is known that there may be some extra tired legs with tough schedules and lots of travel. Although because of COVID, most teams do not have the same number of games played, and we can safely say that this is the halfway point of the year with most teams having played between 41 and 44 games. With that being said, let’s see who has a shot at bringing the Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy home this season.

The NBA teams start training camp on September 28, and Labor Day is upon us, so it is time to handicap the futures. Most of the major personnel moves have been made, so the sportsbooks have posted their “over/under” odds for team win totals, and I have made my selections.
NBA Commissioner Weighs In on Legal US Sports Betting
by Dave Schwab - 6/1/2021
Adam Silver has been the commissioner of the National Basketball Association (NBA) since 2014 when he assumed that role from long-time mentor David Stern. During his seven-year tenure, he has been viewed as one of the more progressive leaders of a major professional US sports league.
Los Angeles Lakers vs Phoenix Suns NBA Playoff Series Predictions and Odds
by Chris Vasile - 5/22/2021
Out of all the Western Conference matchups, this series gets my vote for being one of the most-watched and entertaining series of the first round. In one corner, you have the No. 2 seed Suns, who finished with the second-best record in the NBA and who have improved by a whopping 17 games from last year’s 34-39 record. In the other corner, you have the infamous Los Angeles Lakers, who simply need no introduction. The Lakers are the defending champions, but they had a below-average season for their lofty standards despite finishing 12 games over .500.
Boston Celtics vs Brooklyn Nets NBA Playoff Series Predictions and Odds
by Chris Vasile - 5/21/2021
There are a handful of first-round playoff matches that intrigue me. For example, every single Western Conference matchup has must-see TV written all over it. In the east, while there are intriguing matchups and some personal beef between players (read: Joel Embiid vs Russell Westbrook), I think the Brooklyn/Boston series is “the” must-watch series of the first round.
LA Lakers Could be in Real Trouble with LeBron and AD Injuries
by Doc's Sports - 3/25/2021
As Doc’s NBA handicapper, fading the Lakers has been a way of life for years. This is THE public team in the NBA, and the oddsmakers shade, or add extra points, to their betting spreads on a nightly basis since they know the general betting public will always lay the points on the Purple and Gold.

Free NBA Picks Friday 1/15/2021 and Opening Line Report
by Jason Radowitz - 1/14/2021
Former Rockets all-star and triple-double machine, James Harden, has been dealt to the Brooklyn Nets in a blockbuster four-team deal that saw the Nets give up an extreme amount of assets, including Caris LaVert and Jarrett Allen. In that deal, Victor Oladipo went to the Rockets, while the Pacers received LeVert. The Cavs received Allen and Taurean Prince, which likely means Andre Drummond’s time in Cleveland is about to come to an end. What a week it’s been in the NBA. Again, please pay attention to players sitting out due to rest or COVID before making any wagers. Here are the early leans on games for January 15.
