NBA Playoffs Lines VS Washington Wizards Colege Basketball Odds

Looking to rebound from a tough loss, the Washington Wizards will host the San Antonio Spurs on Tuesday and BookMaker Sportsbook has you covered, giving you the information you need to help you beat the NBA odds.

The San Antonio Spurs have held the upper hand against for the Washington Wizards for years and have beaten the Wizards in each of their last ten head-to-head meetings, capturing the win against the NBA odds in nine of those ten games.

Most recently, the Spurs topped the Wizards 101-92 in San Antonio a little over a week ago. Washington will look for revenge as they get home court advantage this time around.

On January 3, the Spurs got a particularly impressive performance out of guard Cory Joseph as he notched a team-high 19 points as Tim Duncan was only able to get four points and San Antonio played without Tony Parker or Kawhi Leonard.

Parker is back now and will be in the line-up alongside Duncan on Tuesday. This will only be his fourth game since returning from injury, but Parker managed to score 12 points and record five assists against the Timberwolves on Saturday and with two days’ rest should be able to do even better on Tuesday.

Washington, meanwhile, will only have one day off before battling the Spurs against the NBA wagering odds. The Wizards do not have the same injury concerns as the Spurs, but they are coming off a disappointing 120-89 defeat at the hands of the Atlanta Hawks.

Washington had no answers for Atlanta on Sunday as eight different Hawk players recorded at least 10 points as the team was particularly effective behind the arc shooting 51.6% while sinking 16 threes compared to just five for the Wizards, beating Washington at their own game. After all, on the year, the Wizards are leading the NBA with a 39.2% mark from three point range.

Despite the poor showing in Atlanta, the Wizards are still a defense first team on the year, ranking in the top five in fewest PPG allowed with just 97.6. Offensively, however, they can produce as well, leaning on guard John Wall ( 17.1 PPG and 10.3 APG ) to lead the way.

NBA Prediction – At first glance, it would seem the Spurs have the edge, having beaten the Wizards once this year and having the extra day off, but the trends and stats just do not bear that out as the Wizards are 15-5 SU and 12-8 ATS on one days’ rest while the Spurs are just 3-4 SU and 2-4-1 ATS when given an extra day. In addition, the Wizards are playing with a full roster while the Spurs are without Leonard and Manu Ginobili. Ginobili is a big loss, but not nearly as big as Leonard considering the Spurs are just 7-10-1 against the NBA odds when he is not in the line-up. Add in the Spurs’ 1-6 ATS mark in their last seven following an ATS win and the Wizards’ 7-5 ATS in their last 12 home games, and I am going with the Wizards over the Spurs.

Trail Blazers look to get back on Track vs. Miami Heat on TNT

Written by Mike Rose of North Shore Sports, INC

NBA Betting Lines VS NBA Betting Picks

A non-conference brawl against the NBA odds is set to go down at Bookmaker Sportsbook on Thursday night when the Miami Heat invades the Pacific Northwest looking to hand the Portland Trail Blazers just their fourth home defeat of the season.

Evidenced by what the Heat have managed to do in the W/L column through their first 35 games played, it comes as no surprise to discover that LeBron James was the ingredient that made Miami a championship contender. Without LBJ in the lineup, Miami is nothing more than a run of the mill Eastern Conference entrant. But as bad as it’s been in Cleveland thus far, you have to wonder whether James is questioning his decision to go back home.
Regardless, Miami knows more rough sailing is in store with Washington and Atlanta dominating the Southeast Division and many more games scheduled to go versus the NBA betting odds against upper echelon competition. It’s been ugly for the reigning Eastern Conference champs of late. Yes, they came out victorious the other night at home vs. Brooklyn by pulling out the 88-84 win as 2.5-point underdogs, but before that, they had dropped four straight and failed to cover each game. Tonight’s tilt kicks off a five-game west coast swing. Miami’s been average when on the road in going 8-8 SU & ATS, and has gotten its clock cleaned vs. Western Conference opposition in dropping 19 of its L/26 match-ups ATS.
Due to Oklahoma City being forced to deal with major injuries to both of its superstars, the Trail Blazers are currently coasting in the Northwest Division with a 10-game lead over the Thunder. Damian Lillard and company have only been upended twice in their L/10 games, and they’ll enter this tilt with the Heat off a win but have failed to cover the pro basketball odds in each of their L/2. That said, they’ve gone 3-0 SU & 2-1 ATS when playing on 2+ day’s rest to date, and will be looking to snap a three-game losing streak against the Heat.
Coach Stotts’ men have been exceptionally balanced with the squad routinely excelling at the defensive end of the court where they’re allowing just 97.0 PPG ( #2 ) and possess the best 3-point defense in the league. LaMarcus Aldridge is the leader of an offense that’s tickled the twine for an average of 103.9 PPG ( #6 ) with the help of some excellent offensive rebounding that gives them numerous second chance scoring opportunities. The Blazers have done a solid job protecting their house in winning 16 of 19 while going 11-7-1 ATS in those contests; they’ve gone 15-2 SU vs. the Eastern Conference this season.
NBA Prediction – The Heat swept the season rivalry from the Trail Blazers last season winning 108-107 as 7-point underdogs minus LBJ in their trip to the Moda Center, and then squeezed out a 93-91 win back in South Beach with James back in the fold. Portland has not played its dominating brand of basketball since thrashing the Knicks at the end of December. If they’re once again able to dominate the rebounding battle vs. the Heat who excels at the defensive end, I just don’t foresee this being much of a contest. Second chance opportunities will kill the Heat here considering they possess one of the worst offenses in the league. Miami’s covered the NBA odds only three times the L/12 times it ran up against a +.600 opponent, while Portland has covered at a 10-4 ATS clip in its L/14 TNT appearances.

The Chicago Bulls host the Denver Nuggets in an inter-Conference clash, and Bookmaker has you covered for all the full game, halftime, and live betting action.

Denver travels over the New Year following a bad home loss to the Lakers Tuesday, 111-103. The Bulls remain home over the New Year after an embarrassing 96-82 loss Tuesday to the Nets as a 10-point NBA betting favorite. That snapped the Bulls 7-game winning streak, but Chicago still leads the Central division by 3.5-games and the Bulls have played just 14 home games this season. They should ring in the New Year with a big NBA betting win over deficient Denver, who is 4-11 on the road.
The Bulls score 103 PPG and should surpass that number against Denver despite average shooting. But the Bulls rank top-6 in offensive efficiency with guard Jimmy Butler ( 22 PPG ) the teams strongest perimeter shooter who continues to play at a high-level alongside Derrick Rose ( 18 PPG , 5 APT ).
Pau Gasol ( 18 PPG, 11 RPG ) has provided the Bulls added strength on both ends of the court to compliment power center Joakim Noah ( 9 PPG, 10 RPG ), and both Taj Gibson ( 12 PPG, 54% FG, 7 RPG ) and Mike Dunleavy ( 9 PPG ) can score from anywhere on the floor.
Solid back court depth with Kirk Hinrich and Aaron Brooks make the Bulls more formidable on offense this season and able to cover more NBA betting lines with their offensive production as they remain solid on defense ranking top-10 in efficiency.
Denver is one of the worst shooting teams in the league hitting 43% FG. That includes less than 32% from the arch which is the worst in the Western conference and #29 in the league. They are also poorly coached by Brian Shaw and at a huge disadvantage on the bench against the Bulls Tom Thibodeau.
Denver is 5-11 SU in December and the Nuggets allowed 102, 102, 110 and 111 points to recent inferior foes Minnesota, Brooklyn, Charlotte and the Lakers and were pounded Sunday at home by Toronto, 116-102. Ty Lawson ( 16 PPG, 10 APG ) is one of the league leaders in assists, and while the Nuggets have some solid rebounders inside with Wilson Chandler alongside Kenneth Faried and C Timofey Mozgov ( both 8 RPG ), it’s not enough to hold off the Bulls and their #3 rebounding rate.

NBA Prediction – Chicago lost to the Nuggs in Denver 114-109 on November 25th as a 5-point underdog. While the Bulls will be laying a big price this time on the NBA betting board, expect a solid double-digit win by the Bulls as they bounce back against deficient Denver, whose in the midst of a 1-7 ATS run on the road.

The San Antonio Spurs host the Oklahoma City Thunder in a marquee match-up on Christmas day, and Bookmaker has you covered for all the betting action.

Christmas day special in San Antonio, where the Spurs sit in fourth place in the Southwest division with all five teams sporting winning records. The Spurs knocked off the Clippers on this court Monday 125-118 as they shot 63% FG led by PG Tony Parker’s 26 points in his return to the court. Parker had not played since December 12 following a hamstring injury, but he’s the catalyst to the offense that ranks top-10 in offensive efficiency and effective FG% and the key to NBA betting success when supporting the Spurs.
Tim Duncan ( 16 PPG, 11 RPG ) is having another fine season along with F Kawhi Leonard ( 15 PPG, 7 RPG ), but the Spurs depth and strength off the bench is among the best in the league. The Spurs average 103 PPG on 46% FG shooting including 112 PPG in their last three contests.
Oklahoma City has won eight of their last 10 games and while their season average shows 96 PPG, the Thunder have scored at least 100 points in eight of their last 10 games with the return of Kevin Durant ( 22 PPG, 5 RPG ) to the lineup. However, Durant has missed the last two games with an ankle sprain and was questionable for Tuesday’s home game vs. Portland.
Recall G Russell Westbrook ( 27 PPG, 5 RPG, 7 APG ) missed the early season and he’s the catalyst to run the offense, distribute and score alongside G Reggie Jackson ( 16 PPG, 5 APG ). Serge Ibaka ( 14 PPG, 7 RPG ) provides strength on the interior to battle on the boards with the Spurs, and these two teams rank #2 and #3 in rebounding rate.
The Spurs knocked the Thunder out of the playoffs in the Western Conference finals last year. San Antonio won and covered all three home games against the NBA betting line, and we think they can get the first meeting of this season in another projected higher-scoring match-up.

NBA Prediction: The Spurs are on a 3-8 ATS run as an NBA betting favorite of 9 or less points and 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. Western Conference teams. The over is 9-2 in the Spurs last 11 games and 8-0 over the total in their last eight home games. The favorite is 6-1 ATS in the last seven meetings and the Thunder are 1-7 ATS in their last eight road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Check the status of Kevin Durant, but if he plays we’ll ride the over streak on the Spurs home court.

San Antonio is 17-9 but in fourth place in the Southwest Division following Wednesday’s home loss to top team Memphis, 117-116 in triple overtime. The Spurs were a 3-point NBA betting favorite and will be a small favorite again over the Trailblazers.
The Spurs were beaten badly by the ‘Blazers on December 15th in Portland 108-95, but Tim Duncan ( 14 PPG, 11 RPG ), Manu Ginobili ( 12 PPG, 4 APG ) and C Tiago Splitter did not play. Splitter returned to the lineup December 10 and did play against the Grizzlies Wednesday despite a calf injury. However, F Kawhi Leonard ( 15 PPG, 7 PRG ) did not play vs. Memphis and is questionable vs. Portland with a hand injury. Note guard Danny Green ( 12 PPG ) and Tim Duncan logged over 47 minutes vs. Memphis and PG Tony Parker ( 16 PPG ) has missed six of the last seven games ( hamstring ) and is likely out again vs. Portland.
Portland checks in 4-11 ATS vs. .600 teams or greater, but one of those victories was against the Spurs. LaMarcus Aldridge ( 22 PPG, 10 RPG ) is a dominant player in the post but the Trailblazers now move forward without C Robin Lopez ( 10 PPG, 7 RPG ), who broke his hand in the victory over the Spurs. That didn’t slow Portland from beating Milwaukee at home Wednesday 104-97, as backup C Thomas Robinson had 15 points and pulled down 16 rebounds and PG Damian Lillard poured in 29 points. Lillard will be a difference-maker again with Parker out for the Spurs, and I expect Portland to tally its second straight win against the NBA betting odds against the Spurs.
Both the ‘Blazers and Spurs rank top-10 in offensive efficiency and top-6 in defensive efficiency and rebounding rate. But San Antonio is not nearly as strong without Parker in the lineup and now 2-4 SU in their last six games during his absence. Should Leonard miss the game then we expect an even stronger performance and positive result for Portland.

NBA Prediction: The Spurs are on a 2-7 ATS run as a NBA betting favorite of 9 or fewer points and 1-4 ATS in their last five games vs. Western Conference teams. The Blazers lead the Northwest Division by over 7-games and clearly want this game again knowing San Antonio knocked them from the playoffs last season. Portland is 6-2 ATS in their last eight games vs. a team with a winning record. The over is 7-1 in the Spurs last eight games and 6-0 over the total in their last six home games. Look for Portland to eclipse 100 points in victory Friday against the run down Spurs without key personnel.

Memphis Grizzlies Battle Dallas Mavericks in Key Divisional Clash

The Grizzlies are tied with Houston on top of the Southwest Division with both Dallas and San Antonio just 1-game back in the strongest division in basketball. Recall the Mavericks beat the Grizzlies handily three times last season before Memphis held off Dallas 106-105 in overtime in the final game of the regular season. Plenty of NBA betting is expected for this key divisional clash and top game of the night in the NBA.

The Mavericks are one of the top shooting teams in the league and lead the NBA in offensive efficiency and scoring at 110 PPG on 48% shooting. But Memphis is top-5 in defensive efficiency and stronger on the boards led by center Marc Gasol ( 19 PPG, 8 RPG ) and bruising F Zach Randolph ( 15 PPG, 11 RPG ). Point guard Mike Conley ( 16 PPG ) and sharp shooter Courtney Lee ( 12 PPG, 52% arch ) provide solid back court play to offset the Mavericks strong scorer Monte Ellis ( 19 PPG ).

Dirk Nowitzki ( 19 PPG ), Chandler Parsons ( 15 PPG ) and C Tyson Chandler ( 11 PPG, 12 PPG ) key the inside strength of the Mavericks but Dallas is still not a strong rebounding team. The Mavericks take 31% of their shots from behind the arch which is the third-highest percentage in the league.

Memphis is 9-1 at home and was 10-0 vs. the Western Conference this season before losing two December games to division foes Houston and San Antonio last week. But look for the Grizzlies defense to be the difference on the NBA betting lines in the first match-up of the year with the high-scoring Mavericks.

NBA Prediction: Dallas has won five of its last six games including 4-straight on the road. The Mavs are also on a 9-2 ATS run vs. division opponents and have proven to be a solid road team. But the Grizzlies are 9-1 at home and 7-1 ATS in their last eight games when returning to the hardwood on 24 hours rest. The Grizzlies are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games, and while the Mavs lead the league in scoring with 5-straight games going over the total, we’ll call for the Grizzlies defense to deliver a win and cover of the near 4-point NBA betting line.

San Antonio Spurs Look for Ninth Straight Win against Nets in Brooklyn

Written by Steven Wisner of North Shore Sports, INC

NBA Playoffs Lines VS NBA Playoffs Lines

The Brooklyn Nets return home on Wednesday to take on the San Antonio Spurs and BookMaker Sportsbook has you covered with a breakdown of everything you need to know to beat the NBA spread.

The San Antonio Spurs will head to Brooklyn on Wednesday with an eight game winning streak on the line. After starting the season just 5-4, the Spurs have worked their way back up the standings and look to continue their winning ways against the Brooklyn Nets.

In their most recent win, the Spurs topped the 76ers, 109-103, off of a particularly dominating performance by forward Kawhi Leonard ( 26 points and 10 rebounds ). The continued growth of the young forward in his fourth season has been key for the Spurs turning things around. Leonard now ranks second on the team with 15.1 PPG and second in rebounds as well with 7.7 per game.

Leonard, alongside the ageless wonders of Tony Parker ( 17.2 PPG and 5.7 APG ) and Tim Duncan ( 14 PPG and 9.9 RPG ) gives San Antonio a three headed monster that can match-up with anybody. Of course, they are not without their depth, making them even more dangerous as five players have at least 10.7 PPG. That is good as Parker is currently questionable for the game with a rib injury and missed Monday’s game. Duncan also did not play, making the win that much more impressive, even if they did fail to cover the closing NBA betting spread.

On the other side of the court, the Nets are coming off a 102-84 loss to the Chicago Bulls, their seventh loss in their last eight games before they take on the Knicks and then the Spurs in succession, hoping for a win or two—at least against the NBA spread—to get back on track.

Overall, Brooklyn was not able to get anything going against Chicago and that is not too out of line for the season as they have been outscored by 1.5 PPG and while the likes of Deron Williams ( 17.9 PPG and 6.4 APG ), Joe Johnson ( 16 PPG ) and Brook Lopez ( 15.2 PPG ) have put up solid numbers, the team as a whole just hasn’t clicked.

NBA Prediction – An eight game winning streak is not the only thing in the Spurs favor in this one as they also boast an extra days rest compared to the Nets who will be playing on back-to-back days. The Nets are 0-2 this season in such games and 1-1 against the NBA spread. Meanwhile, the Spurs are 6-1 SU and 5-2 ATS in their seven games with a single day’s rest this year. Add to that the Nets’ 0-4 ATS mark in their last four home games as well as the Spurs streak of four straight games over 106 points scored and I’m running with the defending champs in this one.

The Los Angeles Lakers host the Memphis Grizzlies, and we have the latest game analysis below with all your betting action available at Bookmaker Sportsbook.

Memphis has the best record in the NBA at 12-2 and invades Tinseltown on a 4-0 ATS run against the closing NBA betting lines. The Grizzlies rank top-6 in offensive efficiency, defensive efficiency and rebounding rate. The veteran front line of C Marc Gasol ( 20 PPG, 8 RPG ) and Zach Randolph ( 16 PPG, 12 RPG ) will battle Lakers center Jordan Hill ( 14 PPG, 10 RPG ) and Carlos Boozer ( 13 PPG, 6 RPG ) inside with G Kobe Bryant ( 26 PPG ) carrying the scoring load for the Lakers.
Grizzlies guards Courtney Lee ( 14 PPG, 54% FG ) and PG Mike Conley ( 16 PPG, 6 APG ) provide Memphis the perimeter power and advantage in the backcourt in this contest. Lee is a sharp shooter hitting 61% from the arch and is also a strong, physical defender that works well off screens.
Both teams rank in the bottom half of the league in effective FG% with the Lakers near the bottom at #27. LA is averaging 102 PPG and Memphis 100 PPG, but the difference is defense as the Lakers allow a league-high 111 PPG with Memphis #3 allowing a paltry 92 PPG. Should Memphis decide to run with the Lakers #7 pace then this game could get over the total like their meeting back on November 11th; a 107-102 Grizzlies win at Memphis as a 10-point favorite on the NBA lines.
The Lakers average 85 shots per game to rank #3 in the NBA and took 87 against Memphis, who takes 81 shots per game which is the league average. Both teams are near average in fast break points per game ( 10-12 PPG ) and each team scores 64% of their points from inside the arch with both teams near the bottom scoring 14-16% of their points beyond the arch.
Memphis will be laying near 9 points on the road, and both teams are well-rested having last played Sunday. The Lakers only total lined lower than 200 was against Memphis this season, and this total will be inflated making under the preferred play on the NBA lines.

NBA Play: The Grizzlies are on a 4-0 ATS run and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games playing on 2-days rest. The Lakers are 2-8-2 ATS on the basketball betting lines in their last 12 home games and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six home games vs. a team with a winning road record. The over is 6-1 in the Grizzlies last seven games playing on 2-days rest and 9-4 in the Lakers last 13 games. The over is also 6-1 in the Lakers last seven games vs. a team with a winning percentage above .600 – Contrary call under the total.

Los Angeles Clippers to Battle Miami Heat in South Beach on TNT

Written by Steven Wisner of North Shore Sports, INC

NBA Betting Lines VS NBA Betting Picks

BookMaker Sportsbook has you covered for Thursday night’s TNT battle against the NBA odds as the Los Angeles Clippers look to hand the Miami Heat their fourth loss in five games.

The Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat were two of the NBA’s better teams a year ago with the Heat making it to the NBA Finals and the Clippers ranking as the third seed in the NBA West.

Neither team, however, has been that strong against the NBA odds here in the early going as the Heat needed a 95-83 win over the Brooklyn Nets on Monday to snap a three-game losing streak while the Clippers have struggled to find consistency, unable to win two in a row since the first two games of the season.

Most recently, the Clippers fell at home to the Chicago Bulls, 105-89, and surrendered 22 points to Jimmy Butler, 20 to Taj Gibson and a double-double ( 11 points and 16 rebounds ) to center Joakim Noah. Across the court, Jamal Crawford managed 24 points and DeAndre Jordan matched his counterpart with his own double-double ( 10 points and 17 rebounds ), but it wasn’t nearly enough.

To be successful, the Clippers need more from guard Chris Paul who had just 12 points and seven assists. On the year, he is averaging 17.3 PPG and 9.8 APG. Los Angeles will look to Paul and Blake Griffin ( 23.1 PPG and 7.3 RPG ) to lead the way on Thursday, however, they will take on the Orlando Magic on Wednesday before turning their attention to the Heat.

The Heat is already focused and preparing for Thursday having not played since Monday. With two full days of rest and preparation, Miami has the edge there and are 2-1 SU and ATS this season on 48 hours rest. The Clippers, however, are 2-0 SU, but 0-2 ATS, in their two games played when unrested.

Statistically, the Clippers have the superior offense, outscoring the Heat by 4.1 PPG and are also better rebounders, but the Heat have the edge on defense and have also fared better this season against the NBA betting odds.

Despite the lower PPG average and the loss of LeBron James over the offseason, the Heat still have some prolific playmakers who can put the ball through the hoop, including Chris Bosh ( 19.9 PPG and 8.7 RPG ), Dwyane Wade ( 19.8 PPG and 6.4 APG ) along with key role players like Luol Deng and Mario Chalmers.

NBA Prediction – Extra rest and playing at home give the Heat an edge, but the Clippers are not going to roll over because of it as shown by their 2-0 mark without rest. Los Angeles, however, has only played two of its nine games away from home and is 1-1 SU and 0-2 against the NBA odds in those contests. Overall, the Clippers are just 1-8 ATS this season and taking that trend back a bit further just 7-19 ATS in their last 26 games. The Heat, on the other hand, already has six ATS victories this year. Plus, the home team is 10-2 ATS the last 12 times these two teams locked horns.

Tough back-to-back spot for the Spurs, who play the Clippers in Los Angeles Monday. Now they face the Warriors off their first loss of the season Sunday at Phoenix. Golden State played that game without #2 scorer Klay Thompson ( hand, 24 PPG ), so check his status before making a NBA betting wager on this contest.
Golden State lost both meetings at home to San Antonio last season and one of those was when Spurs coach Popovich rested his big 3 stars of Duncan, Parker and Ginobili. He also rested those three in the second game of back-to-backs last week, so wager on this game closer to game time when the lineups are secure. Note too that the Warriors have lost 3-straight home games to San Antonio and following last year’s losses to the Spurs, Golden State should bring their best with the personnel and strength to snap the Spurs dominance in this NBA betting series.
Golden State is playing at the fastest pace in the league and is #1 in offensive efficiency and effective FG% led by star guard Stephon Curry ( 28 PPG, 7 APG, 6 RPG, 50% FG ). But the Warriors are balanced and deep and have the interior strength in C Andrew Bogut ( 11 RPG ) and Draymond Green ( 14 PPG, 7 RPG ) to battle a Spurs team that’s #3 in rebounding rate.
San Antonio C Tiago Splitter has played just one game this season and remains sidelined with a calf injury while shooting guard Marco Belinelli ( 8 PPG ) will miss his third-straight game against the Clippers Monday with a groin injury. Parker is strong again at the point ( 18 PPG, 55% FG ), but turnover troubles have been an issue as San Antonio is turning the ball over on greater than 16% of their possessions. That’s a major issue in this NBA betting match-up against the fast-paced Warriors, who have turned the ball over 52 times themselves the past two games.

NBA Prediction: The Warriors are 6-0 ATS in their last six home games and the under is 4-1 in Spurs games this season and 4-1 in the last five meetings between these two teams. Golden State has won both their home games by at least 17 points, and while the Warriors could be laying nearly 6 points on the NBA betting line pending lineups and results Monday, look for Golden State to extend the margin and hold nothing back against the defending NBA champs.
