The Brooklyn Nets visit the Cleveland Cavaliers for some basketball gambling odds action on Friday, January 27th at Quicken Loans Arena. NBA online basketball odds to be announced on SBG Global sportsbook.
Basketball Gambling on The Nets
The Nets almost snapped their losing streak on Wednesdays, but almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. Brooklyn blew an 18-point lead against the Miami Heat, thus rendering Brook Lopez’s 33 points and career-best seven three-pointers meaningless. The Nets are 1-12 in January and have the worst record in the league – which goes in accordance with Brooklyn’s Vegas NBA online betting odds of having the lowest win total this season. Moreover, they have yet to win a game at Barclays Center this year. It was the first ever Pride Night at the arena, but the Nets have little to be proud about, raking dead last in both division and conference. Professor, would you say it’s time for everyone to panic?
A few months back, GM Sean Marks said Brooklyn’s focus moving forward would be on progress as opposed to wins. In that sense, there is a budding youth movement including Caris LeVert and Isaiah Whitehead – and ideally Jeremy Lin when and if he’s ever healthy. All things considered, the Nets were never meant to make the playoffs this season anyway, but there might be a light at the end of the tunnel. Now, regarding their near future, that’s another matter entirely, as they head towards Cleveland to face a team that has defeated them two times already this season.
Basketball Gambling Expectations
Contrary to all basketball gambling expectations, the Cavs have one thing in common with the Nets; a losing January record and a tree-game losing streak. Two things in common with the Nets. Oh, and losses to the Jazz and the Spurs. Three things. Something unexpectedly shocking and bizarre occurred on Wednesday. LeBron James shaved his beard. Wonder what the NBA online betting odds on that were. Ah yes, and the Cavs lost 112-116 to the Kings in overtime. James finished with 24 points, 13 rebounds and 11 assists, Kevin Love added 21 points and 16 rebounds, and Kyrie Irving had 20 points, but Cleveland couldn’t prevent the Kings’ Arron Afflalo from sinking a three-pointer with 17.3 seconds to go in overtime to give the Cavs their sixth loss in eight games. This raises many questions.
Are the Cavs the Denver Broncos of the NBA? Should we start spitballing a new name, like Make-Believeland? Professor, would you say it’s time for Cleveland fans to crack each other’s heads open? Well, at least there is that one thing basketball gambling experts can always fall back on when the Cavs struggle; blame Kevin Love. Let the trade rumors begin. First in line, the Knicks’ Carmelo Anthony in exchange for Love. Nonetheless, GM David Griffin said he might not make any more transactions before the deadline, and head coach Tyronn Lue added that “we have enough on this team to win a championship.” Yes, but do you have enough to win championships, in plural?
