As far as basketball betting odds go, the Golden State Warriors are the only thing standing between the Cleveland Cavaliers and back-to-back NBA championships. However, on Tuesday, October 25th at the Quicken Loans Arena, the New York Knicks will give the Cavs an idea of what it’s like to go against a super team. At least, that is how New York’s new point guard Derrick Rose envisions things going down. “With these teams right now, they're saying us and Golden State are the super teams,” Rose said during an interview with NBA.com in July. Rose declined to specify who “they” are, but for my money, it’s a toss-up between the Illuminati and the Rosicrucians.
The Miami Heat will go back on the road when they visit the Charlotte Hornets at the Spectrum Center on October 20th for their next-to-last preseason game. The Heat are 2-1 n the preseason – as of this writing; they still have three other games to go before actually making it to Charlotte – while the Hornets are 1-3. On the surface that might make Miami basketball betting favorites to beat Charlotte. Let’s not forget, though, that the Heat eliminated the Hornets in the first round of the playoffs back in May, so a little payback might be in order.
The current, reigning, defending NBA Champions the Cleveland Cavaliers will close their preseason on Tuesday, October 18th when they host the Washington Wizards at the Value City Arena. Being the champions and all, people who bet on NBA should expect the Cavs to be the basketball betting favorites on this and any other occasion, for that matter. But then again that means they were the favorites against the Atlanta Hawks, to whom they lost 93-99 on October 10th. But then again – again – head coach Tyronn Lue decided to sit out LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Iman Shumpert, Channing Frye, Richard Jefferson, Mike Dunleavy, and ‘Hans’ Chris Andersen.
As any self-respecting basketball betting fan knows, Las Vegas released the over/under for all NBA teams with their projected win totals for the 2016-17 season. The forecasts range from realistic to far-fetched to say the least. So which ones to take and which ones to avoid on a betting sportsbook?
Basketball betting season is always entertaining, but the playoffs are arguably the most entertaining part. Getting into the playoffs is always special and signifies that a team is on the right track. Missing the playoffs is never a good sign, especially when you’re missing out several years consecutively. That’s why there’s so much pressure on first year head coach Earl Watson to be able to bring the Phoenix Suns to the playoffs for the first time since the 2009 – 2010 season.
