- Updated: February 27, 2014
At Bang the Book.com we take providing betting information for basketball handicappers seriously and it all starts with offering up betting angles that handicappers can take advantage of on a regular basis. This information should be added to the arsenal of wagering advice that can be gathered from our site on a daily basis.
Of all the information that we provide, one of the most useful items is our weekly NBA basketball betting angles. Not only are these angles something to watch in the current week that we reveal them, but they are also great to keep in mind for the rest of the regular season. This week we looked for an angle that will be in play multiple times leading up to the rest of the week.
NBA Betting Angle: New Players On New Teams
The trading deadline has come and gone but that does not mean that players will still not be on the move. Many teams that have considered this to be a losing season and are tanking have decided to save money by cutting players. Those players will look to leave and sign on with a contender. This will cause some changes on some of the best teams in the league. Putting a new player on a new team will cause the team some problems for the first few games. These teams will need to adjust to the new player and get some chemistry. SO the betting angle for this game is:
Fade any NBA team with a new player that will play at least 8 minutes in the first two games.
The Clippers recently signed Glenn “Big Baby” Davis after he was released from the Orlando Magic. He is in the team but has yet to be inserted into the lineup. When he is, it will take the Clippers some time to adjust to his style of play. Davis averaged 12.1 points and 6.3 rebounds in 45 games this season before the Orlando Magic, who are not in playoff contention, bought out his contract, making him a free agent. With that being said the Clippers will be a fade play this weekend with Davis in the lineup. Remember to only play against the Clippers for the first two games, after that he will be an asset to the team.
Another player could sign as soon as this Friday that would fit in this angle. He is rumored to be signing with the Heat, Rockets, Clippers or Pacers. Whoever he signs with could suffer in the first few games as they adjust to his playing style and player rotation. This is a wagering angle that could be effective at any time during the season.
