by Jason Radowitz - 12/11/2019
In Thursday's four-game slate, we have two teams that absolutely stink, a big Eastern Conference matchup, and a Mexico City special. I won't spend much time on the Knicks and Cavs. Take the favorite and watch the money pile in. The 76ers and Celtics rivalry will get heated up once again as two of the top Eastern Conference teams matchup for what looks to be a thriller. But the game I can't wait to watch is the Mavericks and Pistons game in Mexico City.
NBA Wagering Tips: Teams that Should Be Strong Bets Moving Forward
by Trevor Whenham - 12/11/2019
We are more than a quarter of the way into the NBA season now. In some cases, we know a lot more about some teams than we did when the season started. And in other cases, we know a whole lot less than we thought we knew. If people haven't been paying much attention to what has been happening in the league so far - distracted by football, perhaps - then they are going to look to the standings to tell them who is good and who isn't.
Expert NBA Handicapping: Most Confusing Teams to Wager On
by Trevor Whenham - 12/11/2019
We are past the quarter mark of the NBA season (some people will say that we are past the quarter pole, but those people are idiots - the quarter pole comes with a quarter mile left in a race, not a quarter mile gone. No matter what, don't be one of those idiots). There is still a whole lot of basketball to play, but we have seen enough to know a fair bit about a lot of teams. Milwaukee and the Lakers are really, really good,

In Thursday's NBA slate, we have the matchup everyone has been waiting for! The Knicks visiting the Warriors! This game will help decide who has a better chance at the first overall pick in next year's draft lottery! In this slate, I've taken more favorites than not. There's going to be some lopsided games with high-quality teams playing very poor teams. The favorites should cover the spread for the most part.

Carmelo Anthony will get to compete against the Knicks on Tuesday night. Knicks fans will get to enjoy something this season. It's kind of sad for Knicks fans. Carmelo Anthony playing against the Knicks will be one of the top highlights of the season. This four-game slate isn't all that appealing outside of the Nuggets against the 76ers. To be honest, I don't agree with the NBA scheduling.

On Saturday, only the diehard basketball fans watch the NBA. I get it. The College Football Conference Championships are on all day, along with your favorite college playing a nonconference basketball game. Anyway, we've got five solid NBA games to get ready for. Wait… just four. The Knicks don't count.
Expert NBA Handicapping and Betting Advice: Home and Road Splits
by Trevor Whenham - 12/6/2019
Want a quick shorthand technique to evaluate where a team is at in the NBA - whether they are in a good place or not? Compare their road record to their home record. It's obviously easier to win at home than on the road. Really good teams, though, care much less about where they are playing. They just win. It's not as simple as saying that a team with a big gap in performance between the home record and the road record is a bad one, or one that we shouldn't trust as bettors.

Friday night basketball never gets old. The Clippers play the Bucks and the Nuggets play the Celtics. Those are two potential championship matchups later in the playoffs. Obviously, it's too early to look ahead, but it's not too early to break down NBA games for Friday! We've got a 10-game slate with lots of interesting games taking place. Here are my picks for Friday.

Thursday's slate features just four games. The most intriguing matchup on the night goes to the Rockets and Raptors. Both teams are coming off overtime losses and will want to get back to their usual winning ways. The Rockets had tough luck losing to the Spurs in double overtime. On one play in the fourth quarter, Harden dunked a basket and it was called a miss when it clearly went through the basket.

There are a bunch of teams playing on a second back-to-back game on Wednesday. It's so hard to take any team playing a second straight game because you never know what tricks head coaches have up their sleeves. Will they give less minutes to their stars, or will the entire team be too tired to perform and play another game. Load management is a real thing. Teams truly believe it's necessary to rest their players for the future. Look out for adjustments in a couple games tomorrow.

I don't think we've ever seen this amount of scoring in recent memory in the NBA. The Clippers scored 150 on the Wizards, winning by just 25 on Sunday night. A total of 275 points were scored. It's getting crazy. I'm tempted to never take an under again! Luckily, oddsmakers adjust the numbers based on previous history.

On Saturday we've got a four-game slate, with most teams playing a back-to-back. It's hard to evaluate these the day before because of that. However, some trends are pointing us in the right direction. The Hornets are 4-0 in the second game of a back-to-back this season. Will we lock them in to cover the spread with 14.5 points? The four game early leans are down below!

Happy Thanksgiving! I know everyone's sad that there's no NBA basketball today, but we've got a 14-game slate on Friday to start the long weekend! The Nets and Celtics play at Noon EST tomorrow. Maybe Nets fans will get their wish and watch Kyrie Irving suit up tomorrow for their game against the Celtics at home. Luckily there's no load management issues with literally zero teams playing today. All starters that usually get rest for no reason will be playing. That makes picking games so much easier!
NBA MVP Predictions with Betting Odds and Expert Picks
by Trevor Whenham - 11/27/2019
The NBA MVP race is always interesting, and his year it feels more wide-open and interesting than ever. A combination of the total collapse of the Warriors, the rise of some youngsters, and the continued strength of some of the old guard, means that almost anything is possible still. It has been a very fun season so far, and there is still so much left to come. Here is a look at how the race shapes up here in late November:
NBA Rookie of the Year Odds and Expert Betting Predictions
by Trevor Whenham - 11/27/2019
It's an interesting time to look at the NBA rookie of the year race. We have learned a few things already. First, this draft class, which was criticized for lacking depth at the outset, has a lot of guys who can play. And so many of those guys have been ones that people didn't expect much - or anything in some cases - from. It has been exciting.

We've got a 15-game slate before Thanksgiving! Of course, the NBA scheduling made sure to bring Anthony Davis back to New Orleans the day before Thanksgiving. It'll be an interesting night in New Orleans. The belief is that he'll hear many boos. But how mad can Pelicans fans be after drafting Zion Williamson and basically taking all of the quality young talent away from the Lakers?

We've got an awesome two game slate for Tuesday! At 8:30 the Clippers will play on the road against the red-hot Mavericks who are putting up some big offensive numbers recently. The Clippers are currently considered the best team in basketball. They're finally healthy and have a legitimate contending squad now.

We've got some pretty epic matchups in tonight's slate of NBA games, including the Raptors and 76ers game. We all remember what happened the last time these two teams met; but now things are different. Kawhi Leonard isn't a Raptor anymore, and the 76ers have added to their roster. This game should be fun, along with the other 10 games on the night's slate. So here we go…
NBA Load Management Creates New Era for Basketball Bettors
by Jason Radowitz - 11/18/2019
Before the 2017-18 NBA season, there was a major concern in the league with superstars sitting out during regular season games for rest. In the 2016-2017 season, the Warriors' top players, Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala, took off a nationally televised game against the San Antonio Spurs in March. Furthermore, the Cleveland Cavaliers did the same thing when they sat Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, and Kevin Love against the Los Angeles Clippers in that same season. This sparked a lot of debate and controversy.
2019-20 NBA Season Win Totals Predictions: Over and Under Picks for Every Team
by Ricky Dimon - 10/11/2019
Following another wild offseason, the 2019-20 NBA campaign-one of the most highly-anticipated in years, to be sure-is about to begin. Both of the Los Angeles teams have loaded up; the Lakers by trading for Anthony Davis and the Clippers in the form of Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Houston has a big two of its own with Russell Westbrook joining James Harden, as those three Western Conference powers look to overtake Golden State.
