Denver Nuggets vs. Phoenix Suns Betting Prediction: November 26th 2014

NBA PREDICTION NOVEMBER 26TH 2014Denver Nuggets vs. Phoenix Suns
Betting Prediction: Phoenix -7 (November 26th 2014)
CLICK HERE FOR JIMMY BOYD’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

This may seem like a lot of points to be laying on the Suns against a Nuggets team that has won 5-straight, but I believe we are seeing a big spread for good reason in this one. Denver just played last night in a hard-fought 114-109 home win over the Bulls and now have to go on the road and face one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Phoenix is averaging 104.3 ppg and rank 5th in the league in pace at 98.5. The Suns also have had a fulls days rest and will be motivated off that heartbreaking 100-104 loss at Toronto on Monday.

Adding to the Nuggets being in a difficult spot in terms of rest, there’s another big key to why I don’t think we will see Denver’s best effort in this one. These two will turn around and play at Denver on Friday. Knowing that they are going to get another chance against Phoenix on their home floor in a couple of days, is going to make it difficult for the Nuggets to bring the intensity needed to keep this one close.

It’s also worth noting that Denver is just 3-4 on the road this season. Two of those victories came against a couple of bad teams in the Pacers and Lakers and the other against the Cavaliers during their ugly 4-game losing streak. Adding to this is that all 4 of their road losses have come by at least 9 points.

The Suns are 14-4 ATS in their last 18 games against the Northwest division, 31-15 in their last 46 after playing their last game on the road, 30-14 in their last 44 against up-temp teams (83+ shots/game) and 42-18-1 in their last 51 when playing on 1 days rest. Denver is 5-12 ATS in their last 17 when playing on 0 rest and 2-8-1 in their last 11 versus the Western Conference. Take Phoenix!

Pistons vs. Bucks NBA Betting Prediction from Dave Price: November 25th 2014

Detroit Pistons vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Betting Prediction: Detroit +3 (November 25th 2014)
CLICK HERE FOR DAVE PRICE’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

The Key: The Pistons won the season’s first meeting 98-93 at home. It was their second consecutive win over the Bucks and fifth in six games (the lone loss came by only three points). While some will be looking to play the revenge angle with Milwaukee, there is plenty of evidence saying that’s the wrong move. Milwaukee is on a 25-43 ATS slide at home when seeking revenge for a loss of three points or less. In addition, when the line is +3 to -3, you want to fade home teams that are looking for revenge for a loss to an opponent if that opponent checks in off a road loss. Doing so has produced a 129-78 ATS mark the last five seasons. The Bucks have won four of six at home, but the Pistons are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games versus a team with a winning home record. The road team is 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings. Take the points.

Boston vs. Philadelphia NBA Betting Pick from Ari Atari: November 19th 2014

Boston Celtics vs. Philadelphia 76ers
NBA Pick: Boston -5.5 (November 19th 2014)
CLICK HERE FOR ARI ATARI’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

Boston is lighting up the scoreboard and it’s time to take notice. This is a lopsided game with both teams hungry for the win. The 76ers have lost 10 in a row but this is truly a top level D-League team and nowhere near a competitor on this level. Averaging only 88.5 points on offense while allowing 105.4 points is nothing short of alarming. Boston is exactly the type of team that can take advantage of this situation without making any adjustments.

Brad Stevens is a good coach and hes being forced to come up with new gameplans but I’m sure he wants his team to gel together. This is the kind of game that gives his players the ability to run the floor and look out for each other. 107.4 points per game is enough to make heads turn. The Celtics want to run and now they’ve got their chance. After dropping 3 in a row, we can expect them to grab a win on the road against a rag tag bunch of players on a team with no identity.

Boston has the role players to balance out a roster that can always compete. Philly? Not so much. Add in the fact that one of my favorite scenarios takes place here with Philly coming home after 4 game road trip and the play just gets better. Take the Celtics at -5 if you can, but this one should end up with the Celtics winning by 7 or more.

New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks Betting Pick from Ari Atari: November 18th 2014

KNICKS VS. BUCKS BETTING PICK NOVEMBER 18TH 2014New York Knicks vs. Milwaukee Bucks
Betting Pick: Knicks +3 (November 18th 2014)
CLICK HERE FOR ARI ATARI’S EXPERT NBA BASKETBALL PICKS

2 more NBA winners makes it 6 in a row for SportsAtari. The NFL Under barely missed but 8-2 in November ain’t too bad. I kept the football pick at 1 unit while we piled up 4 units in the NBA. You know where my mind, heart and money is. Basketball is my life. While the league takes its annual break in the summer, I’m running a successful basketball camp in Toronto. This is what I do. My reconstructed ACL carries the scar to prove it. My NBA results over the last 3 years and running prove what I can do for you if you follow my unit values throughout the season.

Only 4 games to choose from tonight and I’m not going to back a team with confidence, but I’m going to tell you from my standpoint that we can still try to steal a unit with the Knicks tonight if you can grab the spread at +4. This is my team and I really should stop telling people that, because they’re an absolute embarrassment. I hate everything about them from their owner right down the that stupid smirk on Carmelo’s face. This is a team that has tortured me and other Knicks fans for 14 years and counting. As long as that selfish punk Anthony plays for this team, they’re going nowhere.

Now why would I recommend a small wager on the NYK tonight? Simply because this is a team that will catch some runs based on false confidence and momentum. Do you see how much of an immature loose cannon J.R. Smith is? He exemplifies the professionalism of this team to the very core. When he gets hot though, there’s no stopping him. I’m betting on the fact that New York parlays their dominant win over the Nuggets and goes for a consecutive win in Milwaukee. They’ve dropped 7 in a row prior to their last win but 5 of them were single digit losses including the last 4 losses in a row. If we can get the Knicks at 2 scores (+4 or more) then we’re holding onto the fact that they can keep it close with middle or lower tier teams. Buy 1 point if you can.

The Bucks are playing impressive defense but they’re still the Bucks. Their offensive production is simply not there to warrant a -4 point spread. I know the spread has just recently dropped to a -3 but I still think the Bucks should not be getting more than -1.5 here. This is a sandwich game at home after 2 on the road. The letdown factor is in play after a great win in Miami, but the flight home for this one game will be overshadowed by looking ahead at another flight tonight to Brooklyn to face the Nets on a back to back. The Knicks also hit the road to Minnesota but they’ve been at home for over a week and should be better suited to handle this scenario.

I hope Shumpert doesn’t play and J.R. Smith continues jacking up shots with his hot hand. This is a time for him to shine. Anthony will do his regular thing with that idiotic look on his face and Amare will try to provide any sort of help he can. The rebounding is important here. If the Knicks control the glass, we’ll see them winning or keeping it very close. Take the Knicks for 1 unit and please excuse this terribly long write-up.

Damn Knicks. Get it done.

Hornets vs. Mavericks NBA Odds & Prediction from Joe Gavazzi: November 17th 2014

MAVERICKS VS. HORNETS ODDS PICKCharlotte Hornets vs. Dallas Mavericks
Prediction: Mavericks -3.5 -110 betting odds (November 17th 2014)
CLICK HERE FOR JOE GAVAZZI’S EXPERT NBA PICKS

After the 1st 10 games of NBA action, familiar faces are in familiar places. In the Eastern Conference, this includes Charlotte who stands 4-6 SU, just on the outside looking in of qualifying for the playoffs. In the Western Conference, Dallas stands 7-3 SU, tied with Portland for 4th place in the conference standings.

Charlotte returns from a road trip, where they are 1-5 SU away. That trip ended with a 112-87 loss at the hands of Golden State. The Hornets have allowed 105 PPG in their last 5 contests. On Saturday night, they allowed the Warriors to pour in 112 points on 52% shooting. Key to Charlotte’s success has been a 3-1 SU conference record. Playing teams from the West, such as these Dallas Mavericks, finds them to be 1-5 SU. The Hornets have an assortment of players battling through injury. MKG (foot, head) and Neal (head) will certainly miss this game. But Kemba Walker (back), Lance Stevenson (groin), and M. Williams (knee) have all been compromised by their respective maladies.

Dallas enters as one of the hottest teams in the league on a 3-0 SU ATS run. In those victories, they have outscored foes 360-285 for an average of 120-95. This was all against competition against the likes of Sacramento, Philly and Minnesota as they will face tonight. In the 131-117 Saturday night win vs. Minnesota, they had 4 players dish out 5 or more assists. Nowitizki shot a rock-solid 56%. This is a veteran team, anchored in the middle by the return of Chandler that has plenty of scoring pop at all other positions.

An argument can be made for the home/road dichotomy of each team which would favor the Hornets in this contest. Of greater importance is the way in which Charlotte has struggled against the faster paced teams in the West. Each of these teams is allowing 100 PPG, after 10 games. But, it is on the offensive end where Dallas outscores Charlotte by a count of 110-96, where the Mavs will have a major edge tonight. At a short road price on the road, I favor a veteran Dallas team who is in great offensive current form against a Charlotte team who is a bit battered and bruised and does not figure to keep pace with the up-tempo style of tonight’s visitor. The result is a comfortable Dallas Mavericks’ double digit victory against the outmanned Hornets.
