NBA Opening Night Betting Odds and Preview
2010-10-26

Miami Heat vs. Boston Celtics

8:00 p.m. ET on TNT

Sportsbook.com NBA Lines: Heat -1.5, Total: 188.5

The NBA betting season officially gets underway tonight in Boston when the new-look Heat travel north to take on the Celtics. The game marks the much-anticipated debut of LeBron James and Chris Bosh in Miami uniforms. Hopes are high in South Beach and anything less than an appearance in the NBA Finals could be viewed as a failure. Sportsbook.com has the Heat as the +160 favorites to cut down the nets in June.

They’ll also look to avenge an opening-round playoff loss to the Celtics last year, who needed only five games to bounce Miami out of the postseason. The Heat went an uninspiring 3-4 in the preseason with Wade missing a majority of the action with a hamstring injury.

For the Celtics, they enter the year for one more run at an NBA Championship with their big three still intact. Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett got some help down low in the offseason with the addition of Shaquille O’Neal. Tuesday’s matchup marks the second time in as many seasons that Boston will open against LeBron James. The Celtics defeated the Cavaliers last year on opening night in Cleveland, 95-89. The Celts compiled a 7-1 record during the preseason.

After looking at the NBA Championship betting odds, Boston is +700 to win it all.

Houston Rockets vs. LA Lakers

10:30 p.m. ET on TNT

Sportsbook.com NBA Lines: Los Angeles -7, Total: 195

The Lakers begin their title defense Tuesday when they welcome the Rockets to Staples Center. Los Angeles begins the 2010-2011 season with the majority of their championship team intact, with the only subtraction being Jordan Farmar who signed with the Nets in the offseason.

The Lakers went 73-32 including the postseason last year. However, they weren’t kind to the NBA betting crowd compiling a 46-57-2 record (44.7%) against the spread. They were an impressive 45-8 in home games, but again struggled against the number, going 23-29-1. L.A took three of four from Houston last season but covered only twice. Six of the last seven meetings between the teams at Staples Center have gone under the total.

Houston hopes the return of Yao Ming can help it improve on the 42-40 record it posted last year. The Rockets went 37-45 (45.1%) against the spread in those games. They added Brad Miller and guard Courtney Lee in the offseason and parted ways with Trevor Ariza. The Rockets went 7-11 ATS against the Pacific Division last year and 13-17 ATS as a road underdog. Houston averaged 102.7 points per game in ‘09-10, good enough for eighth-best in the league. The Rockets’ troubles came on defense where they allowed 102.7 PPG, ranking 21st in the NBA. Yao’s presence should help the defensive numbers if he’s able to stay healthy for the entire year.

Here are a couple of NBA betting trends which both favor the Lakers on the point spread tonight.

LA LAKERS are 10-5 against the spread versus HOUSTON over the last 3 seasons including a 6-2 ATS record in home games.

LA LAKERS are 44-25 (64%) straight up against HOUSTON since 1996.

Anyone interesting in betting on the ‘total’ should take note of the following trend:

Phil Jackson is 391-352 OVER (+3.8 Units) as a favorite as the coach of LA LAKERS.

The average score was LA LAKERS 103.4, OPPONENT 96.7 - (Rating = 0*).

NBA: Cleveland at Boston (7:00E – ESPN)
2010-05-07

Lost in all of the talk about the elbow injury to LeBron James has been the fact that the Boston Celtics have thoroughly outplayed the Cleveland Cavaliers in the first two games of their second round NBA Eastern Conference playoff series. Game 3 is set for Friday evening and oddsmakers at Sportsbook.com seem to be missing the point as well, positioning the Cavaliers as 1-point road favorites.

It was just two years ago; General Manager Danny Ainge formed his version of VH1’s “super group”, bringing together Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen to play with Paul Pierce. This was matched by immediate success as the trio blended skills perfectly on the way to a NBA championship.

But that was then. Now KG cannot play a full season as his once youthful legs are betraying him. Allen can still run an opponent crazy going thru a maze of screens, but the quick-triggered jumper is not as reliable as the old days. Pierce was main force in the championship season and he was “the man” whenever Boston needed a clutch basket. Today he is more of a role player, an additional scorer, not someone who can be counted on regularly.

Its new era in Bean-Town and Rajon Rondo is the new leader. The Celtics now go where Rondo takes them.

After a disappointing regular season that left Boston as the fourth seed, The Three Amigos are trying to keep up with the speedy Rondo and are 5-2 SU and ATS in the postseason. The Celtics have been playing tremendous basketball, really only having the equivalent of four less than desirable quarters of hoops among its seven games that accounted for both losses.

Rondo is not about numbers, he’s about results. His outside shooting is below average, he still goes “Road Runner” fast and commits more turnovers than necessary, but he’s smarter player today.

Rondo finds the open man sooner, he will make a steal and be gone two steps before his opponent even reacts and runs down a rebound like he knew the angle of the miss just as the shooter released the ball.

After earning split in Cleveland, Rondo and his teammates truly believe they are better than the Cavaliers and he will look to abuse more Cavs defenders this weekend in front of the home folks.

Sportsbook.com has Boston as single point home underdogs and the Celtics are 8-2-1 ATS when catching 4.5-point or fewer points at TD Garden and will try to keep lethargic Cleveland squad playing the same way.

When Cleveland fans hear about elbow problems, baseball is what usually comes to mind. It’s quite evident however that LeBron James is laboring with this issue. Still, this doesn’t mean the rest of the team can’t make shots and play defense. The Cavs have been outplayed for 6 ½ quarters in this series and everyone will find out a lot in Game 3 about a team that is 7-3 ATS off a double digit home loss.

The StatFox Powerline for this game shows that Boston should be favored by 4 points.


NBA: Friday Night NBA ESPN Doubleheader
2010-02-09

ESPN brings another NBA doubleheader to your living room tonight, with the Bulls taking on the Hawks in the first game and Denver visiting the Lakers in the nightcap. Both games find the hosts favored by 8-points at Sportsbook.com, but the betting action is split entirely opposite. At last check on the BETTING TRENDS page, 80% of bettors were backing the favored Hawks, but almost 90% preferred the underdog Nuggets.

The Bulls (23-24, 2-23-2 ATS) lost the first two games of a recent seven-game road swing, but stunningly closed with five consecutive victories over teams with winning records - the first time that’s been done on the same trip in NBA history. They looked flat in a 90-82 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers upon returning home Tuesday, and had their road streak snapped Wednesday in Philadelphia against a team which entered with a 7-16 home record.

Chicago is 18-6 ATS playing against a team with a winning record in the half of the season over the last two years.

The Bulls were focused at the beginning of their trip to Atlanta on Dec. 9, trailing the Hawks (31-17, 30-18 ATS) by one after a quarter. Atlanta, however, outscored Chicago 65-36 over the next two quarters en route to a 118-83 win. Joe Johnson scored a season-high 40 points, but Crawford was limited to 14. Atlanta is 8-9 when Crawford is held under 15. Three of Johnson’s six career 40-point games have come against the Bulls and his team is 14-6 ATS facing a club with a losing record this season, winning by 12.5 points per game.

Sportsbook.com has Atlanta listed as 8-point favorites with total of 197 and they are 20-5 and 17-8 ATS at home. The Hawks win by 10.2 PPG at Phillips Arena and are 23-13 ATS as a favorite and are 11-1 OVER as home chalk of 6.5 to 12 points this season.

Even with Chicago’s record close to their recent road excursion, they still are an unflattering 9-16 as visitors (12-13 ATS). What the Bulls have been able to do is counter aggressive offenses and are 12-3 ATS in road games versus good offensive teams scoring 99 or more points per game in the second portion of the year over the last two seasons. This leads to Chicago being 13-5 UNDER against shooting teams making 46 percent or more of their shots. Tipoff will be just after 8:00 Eastern on ESPN.

Following the Eastern clash is a matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Denver Nuggets bringing two of the league’s premier scorers into the spotlight. There’s a chance neither could play this time, though. With Kobe Bryant nursing a sore left ankle and Carmelo Anthony recovering from a left ankle sprain, Friday night’s meeting between division leaders could be missing some of its luster. Bryant will be a game-time decision for the Pacific Division-leading Lakers (38-12, 22-26-2 ATS).

Anthony hasn’t been nearly as durable for the Northwest-leading Nuggets (33-16, 22-25-2 ATS) as usual. The former Syracuse star is tied with Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant for the league lead in scoring with an average of 29.7 points, but sat out the first five games in January because of a right knee contusion and has missed Denver’s last six games with an injured ankle. The Nuggets lost for just the fourth time without their three-time All-Star forward in Wednesday’s 109-97 home defeat to Phoenix. Denver is 3-7 ATS after a SU defeat.

The Lakers have had a decisive advantage against the Nuggets in Los Angeles, winning 21 of 23 meetings (15-6 ATS) there since Bryant’s rookie season in 1996-97. The Lakers are enjoying similar success at Staples Center this season, posting a league-best 24-3 home record; however are a pedestrian 13-13-1 against the spread.

Denver is 3-8-1 ATS in last dozen road contests and is 5-12 ATS playing with one day off. The underdog Nuggets are 11-3 UNDER taking on a team with a winning record. The Lakers are a 50-50 proposition after a victory since the end of December with 5-5-2 ATS mark and they are 10-3 UNDER if their opponent has winning record. In last fourteen meetings between these Western Conference clubs the UNDER is 11-3.
