The NBA regular season kicks off tomorrow. The Celtics are at Cleveland and the Rockets travel to the defending NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors. Both are must-watch games for any NBA fan.
Picking regular season over/under prop bets in the NBA’s Western Conference takes some skill this season. You have unbelievably stacked teams like the Warriors, Thunder and Rockets, but you have to factor in the chances teams will rest their stars in a few games this season. A team that has already ‘been there, done that’ like the Warriors and Spurs, will probably rest their guys. The Thunder who legitimately look like they are having fun this preseason, have something to prove and may not rest as many stars.
Can rookie Lonzo Ball push the Los Angeles Lakers to 34 wins?
Here are our over/under season wins total picks for the NBA’s Western Conference.
The NFL has pushed all other sports news off to the side, so some may not realize the NBA regular season starts on Tuesday.
It’s not too late to throw some jellybeans on a few NBA prop bets. Prop bets have become individualized so much that you can bet on a specific person’s assists per game for a season. I just like to stick to a vanilla approach to NBA props. My favorite NBA prop bets are regular season over/unders.
The Boston Celtics boned up their roster this offseason. Can they win more than 54.5 games and hit the over?
Here are our 2017-18 NBA over/under season wins total picks for the Eastern Conference.
Okay, we all have our sport of choice. The one, prime sporting event that we will watch come rain or shine. The one team we have a relentless dedication to, queueing early for tickets to their events and ensuring that we have all the new merchandise each season. But every now and again, it may be a good idea to switch things up a bit. Watching alternative sports every now and then may just spark an interest in something new that you’ve never considered before. For now, let’s focus on basketball. Here’s everything you need to know about the sport and how to go about following it.
If you’re a huge sports fan who never misses a game the chances are you enjoy sitting on the sofa or in a bar watching your favorite teams. There’s nothing better than a great game in a relaxed setting with friends. However if you’re worried about your fitness levels, and don’t fancy hitting the gym, you could turn that fandom into fitness. Here are some two of the best sports to watch, and how you could get fit by playing them.
Basketball is a hugely popular sport and one which teaches a great many skills. As any fan of the sport will know it involves a huge amount of variety. Players shoot, dribble, pass, defend, and do much more throughout the course of the game. Now, basketball is a stop-start kind of a game, which means it’s not recognized as a hugely aerobic sport. However playing basketball can burn up to 700 calories (when played for an hour). Burning calories is the best way to lose weight and develop tone. Not just that but playing this sport can build up your endurance and stamina. You will also be improving your balance and coordination, plus you’ll build muscle and self-discipline.
NBA All-Star Weekend is a fun time for NBA players to bask in their fame and rub elbows with celebrities. The game itself is usually high-scoring, but doesn’t get competitive until the fourth quarter, if it is close at all.
Some may even say the highlight of the weekend is the skills competitions that take place on Saturday night. The Slam Dunk competition has a few names in it, but nothing like the stars that would enter in its golden era. The three-point competition is probably my favorite competition of the night since there’s rarely ever something new tried in the dunk contest these days.
We list the betting odds for the All-Star Game MVP, Dunk Contest, Three-Point Competition, Rising Stars Game MVP and Skills competition winners. We also pick some winners for the prop bets.
The NBA preseason just kicked off and the regular season is not too far away.
If I had to describe the NBA offseason with one word, the word would be MONEY.
It goes without saying that a lot of bad contracts were signed. A ton of money exchanged hands after the salary cap shot up to $94.143 million, an increase of roughly $24 million. I have a feeling NBA owners will want another ‘amnesty clause’ in the next CBA to bail themselves out from some of these deals.
The Cleveland Cavaliers won the Eastern Conference last season and are early favorites to repeat this season. Any sleepers out there worth a bet?
