NBA Betting Tips – NBA Trade Deadline

NBA Betting Tips – NBA Trade DeadlineOne of the trickier times to handicap any sport is in the final week prior to the trade deadline. This is particularly true for the NBA, as basketball teams have much smaller rosters than other sports (such as the NFL or MLB), and a trade involving three or four players basically devastates that team’s active roster for an entire game.

For this reason, it is wise to wait as close to tip-off before placing a wager either on or against an NBA team in case any late-breaking trades are released. The worst thing that can happen to someone betting on the NBA is to do all of the handicapping, only to have that work wasted by a surprise trade.

The NBA’s All-Star break was this past weekend, but there have been no NBA games played so far this week. There are three games scheduled for Thursday – the same day that all trades must be finalized. The six teams involved in those Thursday games is what this NBA handicapping approach really applies to this year.

NBA Betting Tips – NBA Betting Update

NBA Betting Tips – NBA Betting UpdateThe big news in the NBA this past week was Golden State suffering their first loss of the season. After starting the year with a perfect 24-0 record the Warriors lost the last game of a nine-game road swing in Milwaukee. The Bucks celebrated that win on their home court, but have to face a revenge-minded Warriors team that is eager to play the rematch. No doubt Golden State will be a heavy favorite, and we wouldn’t want to take the points with the visiting Bucks as the Warriors likely look to run up the score.

Now at 25-1 on the season, the Warriors still haven’t been able to build a big lead in the standings. San Antonio has nearly been step-for-step with Golden State, and are just 3.5 game behind the Warriors in the Western Conference entering Thursday night’s basketball betting action.

Spurs are 22-5 and are just one tenth of a point behind Golden State in terms of average ppg differential. The Warriors are +13.5 while San Antonio is +13.4, and the next best team (Oklahoma City) is nowhere close to those two clubs at +7.3 ppg.
