  • Blog Post: Convince me the Hawks can win game 7.....

    The line right now for game seven is the Celtics minus a whopping 14.5. So here is the task for today: I do not want any "no way" or "will be a blowout" talk. Say you were hired to present a case on why the Hawks have a shot to win game 7 outright. So essentially a debate on the two...

  • Blog Post: NBA Betting: Home sweet home.....

    There could be countless factors on why these numbers play the way they do (home crowd, used to the rims, etc), but in the NBA the home court seems to have more of an edge than most sports. You can see below the average margin of difference when a team is playing on the road versus at home: ...
  • Blog Post: Sprewell goes to MC Hammer for financial advice

    Stupid is as stupid does..... These NBA players baffle me. For one of the few times in my life, I am speechless on how moronic this bum is: Sprewell's yacht sold, home could be foreclosed Ex-NBA star owes $295,138 on his Milwaukee-area house MILWAUKEE - Former NBA star Latrell Sprewell's home...
  • Blog Post: 1980's Basketball: Best of All-Time????

    Listening to all the Kobe vs. Lebron talk got me thinking back to the 80's when the NBA still had some class and people actually did something called a jump shot. Granted, I was a child of the 80's being born in the mid 70's, but if you look at the rundown, it is hard not to say cats like...

  • Blog Post: Favorite All-Star game moment

    Even though I am not that big fan of the NBA any longer, the old school All-Star games bring back some great memories. The slam-dunk battles with Spud, Dominque and MJ. Bird, Jordan, Magic, Isiah etc all on the same court. My all time fav was back when the NBA Slam Dunk contest went head to head versus...

  • Blog Post: Hedge or not to hedge.....

    Man, moral dilemma. Hammered Atlanta this morning off a tip from a friend offshore. Now the line is Atlanta -2.5, with Magic +120. Obviously I am not letting all the bets roll as my intention was to buy back alot of it and middle. Now my dilemma is do I take some Magic at +120 for some and Magic +2.5...

    To follow up on an earlier blog post about understanding value when betting, we will look at NBA totals from yesterday and review the opening vs closing numbers and see if it mattered (if at all) what number you played at.

  • Blog Post: 100,000 Star TV Game of the Year Inside!

    Just kidding. I was bored the other day and went through a schedule book from last season and was amazed at all the locks, blowouts and inside information games that I discovered.

  • Blog Post: Key numbers in basketball

    I get this asked my opionion alot on this matter, so I figured why not have it documented: 2 years of NBA and CBB games analyzed. 1-4 are the least key numbers (fouls obviously) Games landing on 1 is the fewest for obvious reasons, 3-4 very close in regards to %. 7-8 are key if could call any of the...
  • Blog Post: Ready to middle some basketball?

    If you have enough outs (local and offshore) AND can get on the moves before they happen there is a lot of money that can be made. You always hear people talk about middling, but most of the time they really do not know what the hell they are talking about. When it comes right down to it, sports gambling...
