Thursday Tips

February 13, 2013

The first half of the NBA season (even though every team has played at least 50 games) concludes on Thursday night with a top-notch doubleheader on TNT. The battle of Los Angeles takes place for the third time this season with the Clippers and Lakers matching wits at Staples Center to wrap up the night. Things begin in Oklahoma City with an NBA Finals rematch as the Thunder tries to cool off the Heat.

Heat at Thunder – 8:00 PM EST

Miami overcame a series opening loss to Oklahoma City in last summer’s Finals to win four straight games and the franchise’s second championship. The Heat kept up that momentum on Christmas night by silencing the Thunder at the American Airlines Arena, 103-97 as 2 ½-point favorites. The game barely finished ‘under’ the total of 203 due to a 44-point third quarter, while OKC hung around thanks to 32-of-38 shooting from the foul line.

Miami is scorching right now with six consecutive victories, including a 5-0 SU and 3-2 ATS homestand. The Heat rallied for a miracle cover in Tuesday's 117-104 triumph over the Blazers as 11-point favorites, while using a 16-2 run in the final four minutes to pick up their straight ATS win. The road has been tough sledding for Erik Spoelstra's team at 12-11, but Miami has posted a 5-3 SU/ATS record the last eight away contests. In two road underdog opportunities this season, the Heat won outright over the Lakers (1/17) and Nuggets (11/15).

The Thunder saw a four-game winning streak go by the boards in Tuesday's 15-point defeat at Utah. Oklahoma City was held to under 100 points in consecutive games for the first time since Christmas, when the Thunder scored 93 at Minnesota and 97 at Miami. Scott Brooks' club has won seven straight games at Chesapeake Energy Arena, while covering all seven times in this stretch. The 'over' is 7-3 in the last 10 home contests for the Thunder, as OKC has broken the 100-point mark in 11 of the past 12 home games.

Clippers at Lakers - 10:35 PM EST

Los Angeles is still a Lakers' town, but the Clippers are no longer the little brother that can be pushed around. The Clips are leading the Pacific Division at 37-17, while playing their second game off the long Grammy road trip. The Lakers were also kicked out of Staples Center for a few weeks, as L.A. rallied past Phoenix on Wednesday night to move within three games of .500.

Following a 4-3 SU and 3-4 ATS road swing, the Lakers knocked off the Suns in a revenge spot, 91-85, but failed to cover as 8 ½-point 'chalk.' Mike D'Antoni's club tallied just nine points in the third quarter, while Kobe Bryant converted only field goal en route to four points in the victory. The Lakers are playing with double-revenge, including a 107-102 setback to the Clippers in early January as 4 ½-point 'dogs. Bryant scored 38 points in that defeat, but the Lakers allowed 50% shooting to the Clips.

Vinny Del Negro's squad has split the last 10 games, while winning three of the last four road contests. Granted, this isn't a real away game (except for the purple and gold court), as the Clippers have covered just three of their last nine matchups on the highway. The Clips are playing with no rest after Wednesday's game against the Rockets, as L.A. has cashed the 'over' in nine of 13 games on the second of a back-to-back.

Fact or Fiction

February 12, 2013

NBA betting fans have a short week to work with this week, as there are just a few days' worth of games before the All-Star Break. Check out some of the most important bits of fact and fiction that you should be aware of going into the final week of games before the league's intermission.

FACT

Rudy Gay Will Take the Raptors to the Playoffs: Part of the reason that we believe in the Raps is because we think they are going to make another big move at some point before the deadline. However, Gay is averaging over 23 points per game since joining the club, and he really has helped turned the tide of this franchise. It's still a long climb back into the race for the second season, but the seven games isn't the end of the world in the lousy Eastern Conference.

The Nuggets' Home ATS Record: The Nuggs are just out of this world when they're playing in the Pepsi Center. They went a whopping 6-0 straight up and 5-1 against the spread on this most recent home stand that just wrapped up on Thursday night, and they are now an out-of-this-world 17-8 ATS at home for the season.

The Golden State Warriors Being Legitimate NBA Finals Contenders: Keep a very close eye on the Warriors as we enter the All-Star Break. This team has 30 wins and is in sixth place in the Western Conference right now. However, Golden State is starting to get healthy, and it has already played 29 road games this year, as opposed to 22 home games. The stats don't lie. The Warriors are 13-9 ATS at home and 14-14-1 ATS on the road. This is a team to watch out for as a potentially legitimate contender to win it all this year.

FICTION

Boston's Winning Streak: We just don't see this continuing. Sure, the C's have won and covered seven of eight games without G Rajon Rondo in the fold. However, is this team really legitimate? Remember that the club was just 14-26-3 ATS, the worst mark in the league before this winning streak, and we still can't imagine that this team is better off without Rondo than with him.

The Wizards' SU Victories: We love the Wizards as a great ATS team, especially as big time underdogs. However, we think that the oddsmakers are starting to catch on, and there is reason to believe that this team is going to start to hit the skids in the second-half. Washington still averages just 91.2 points per game, and it is saving a lot of points on the other end of the court. Teams are shooting just 72.6 percent from the charity stripe against this outfit. Once that improves, the ATS defeats are probably coming right behind it, especially knowing that the team has won three in a row SU.

Huge Names Will Shake Up the NBA at the Deadline: Since we're talking about the All-Star Break, we may as well discuss the trade deadline, too since that's right around the corner as well. Names like F Carlos Boozer, F Andrea Bargnani, F Josh Smith, and so many others have been dangled around like pawns. Will some get traded? Sure. It's very possible. However, we don't think that there is another move out there that is going to have the same sort of impact that the Gay-to-Toronto deal had for both the Raptors (positively) and the Grizzlies (negatively).
