2016 NBA Western Conference Season Win Total Prediction Posted by Jordan Walterss on October 17, 2016 in NBA News, Betting Tips, Picks & Previews So my editSo my editors here at Mybookie want me to predict the Western Conference winner in the NBA this season. That’s like asking me to predict whether the sun rises in the East or West. I’m speaking tongue in cheek of course, but the only way the Golden State Warriors don’t win a third straight Western Conference title is if the season is canceled or their team plane crashes. But being serious, really the only thing that can derail the Warriors would be injuries. Let’s check what the NBA lines have to say.
Let’s Have a Closer Look at the 2016 NBA Western Conference Season Win Total Prediction
Of course the Warriors had the best record in NBA history last regular season at 73-9 but an injury to Steph Curry somewhat derailed them in the playoffs. The Warriors were down 3-1 in the Western Conference Finals but became only the ninth team in league history to rally from that deficit and win a series. Alas, fortune wasn’t smiling on the Warriors in the NBA Finals as they became the first team to ever blow a 3-1 series lead and lose in the Finals. It took a super-human effort from LeBron James to win Game 7 back in Oakland.

No team had a better offseason than the Warriors as they were able to convince Kevin Durant to leave Oklahoma City in free agency and sign with them. A lot of players didn’t like that decision as in the old days, a star player didn’t leave his team to join a rival. The Clippers Paul Pierce is an old-school guy and last week he said this about Durant: “I’m an old-school guy. I’m a competitor. I never believed that — when you want to be the best, you’ve to beat the best. And Oklahoma, I felt like, was a contending team. They had Golden State on the ropes. I’ve been in that position. I could have left Boston years ago, but I stuck it out. I just feel like when you’re that close, as a competitor, you don’t go join the team that just put you out.”
The Warriors are -190 favorites to win their second NBA title in three years. I only believe there are two teams that can beat the Warriors in the West.

San Antonio Spurs (+900 For NBA Title)

San Antonio was second in the NBA with 67 wins last year, a franchise record. By all statistical measures, they had one of the best regular seasons ever. But they were 1-3 vs. the Warriors and were upset by Oklahoma City in the conference semifinals. And the team lost Tim Duncan to retirement, arguably the best power forward in league history. He was also the franchise’s emotional and spiritual hub and set the tone for everything. The good news is Kawhi Leonard has been groomed to take over the mantle, and LaMarcus Aldridge was brought on board two summers ago and delivered a very encouraging first season in San Antonio. The team also replaced Duncan with Bulls free agent Pau Gasol, who is a better scorer than Duncan.

Los Angeles Clippers (+3000 For NBA Title)

2016 NBA Western Conference Season Win Total Prediction Posted by Jordan Walterss on October 17, 2016 in NBA News, Betting Tips, Picks & Previews So my editIt’s likely the last hurrah for this group as both star point guard Chris Paul and power forward Blake Griffin will be free agents after this season. I think the Clippers had a chance to beat the Warriors in last year’s playoffs, but Los Angeles was knocked out in the first round by Portland when Griffin and Paul went down with injury. Doc Rivers, the head of basketball operations as well as the coach, kept the core of the roster together. Jamal Crawford, Austin Rivers, Wesley Johnson and Luc Mbah a Moute all re-signed as free agents, keeping the bulk of the bench in place. Another potential key reserve, Marreese Speights, arrived from Golden State.

Sunday Night Football : Patriots Play Cardinals Free Pick New England without Tom Brady on Sunday Night Football have a tall task in the Patriots Cardinals

New England without Tom Brady on Sunday Night Football have a tall task in the Patriots Cardinals Free Pick this weekend. Football each and every day this weekend has everyone here at HRWager in the best of moods. We hope you share our joy and garner some profit this weekend. Find out how the suspended QB is not the key element to this game. Cardinals are now favored by a solid touchdown in the desert! Are they worthy of this faith not only by the linesmakers but the betting public in this game?
Sunday Night Football : Former Patriot

For once when the rich gets richer is not a reference to the Patriots. In fact, they lost a key cog to these very Arizona Cardinals. Chandler Jones now roams the defensive side of Zona. He is a linebacker who has averaged over ten sacks a year in his last three seasons. Now he is added to the equation to what was the fifth best defense in the league. Quite a task for fill in Jimmy Garoppolo to cope with as he leads the Pats Sunday Night.

A second blow to the Pats chances here is that Gronk is gone. The dynamic Patriots tight end is by far their best receiver. He would have been that instant out to help get the sub signal caller’s feet wet in this one. With hamstring problems, Rob didnt even make the trip. All of this and the line has only moved from the opening – 5 1/2 to the seven region. This is not enough of a market shift.

Brand name bias is keeping this line afloat. NE fans are known to bet against the odds the few times their team is an underdog. Part of keeping the line at -7 is because of this. However, do not fall into this trap. Arizona is one of the few franchises that are better on both sides of the ball then the Pats when New England is fully healthy. Spot them this much and home field advantage is decisive here. Double digit win should occur. Go with the Cardinals -7 for your Sunday Night Football Free Pick of the Day. Good fortune and we will see you next time here at the HRW.

Insane Betting Myths

Analyzing The Insane Betting Myths That Are Actually True

There are plenty of different tips that professional handicappers use when advising bettors to wager in the betting lines, and one of the constantly recurring themes in most betting forums is that gamblers should keep away from myths. Here, we aren’t preaching a different gospel; we are all for shunning most of these myths. I mean, why would I believe these constant talks about sportsbooks Analyzing The Insane Betting Myths That Are Actually True There are plenty of different tips that professional handicappers use when advising bettors to wagfixing games with players and teams when I practically live off the money I make every day in my betting endeavors? Yes, I know games are rigged, like the way New England’s Tom Brady liaised with whoever to do whatever on his footballs in that game against the Colts, but to the best of my knowledge—and I know a lot—there is no sportsbook that is yet to be implicated in that Deflategate scandal. Just think of it, if Brady knew that he’d get a lot of advantage from underinflated balls, don’t you think he’d have conspired with a handful of sportsbook odds to benefit from it being the “winner” that he is? Anyway, that’s besides what I am trying to put across; my point is that most myths are useless and time-wasting, but some of them—like the ones detailed below—are actually true.

Lines Movements are More Influenced by the Market than Teams

While teams strengths, the manner in which they play and issues such as injuries and suspensions influence betting lines; most line movements are largely based on the public betting action and opinions, along with Wiseguy money. This is also true for popular teams like the Golden State Warriors in the NBA or the New England Patriots in the NFL, who tend attract a lot of action on sportsbooks as favorites, with the market pounding hard on them and often leading to a drop in their lines. Insane Betting Myths

Most Gamblers Bet the OVER

There’s probably nothing insane about this, but to think that over 70 percent of recreational bettors, especially those who are new to the betting world, I are estimated to bet on OVER is just plain crazy. With so much money spent on sports like basketball, soccer and hockey on the defensive side of the ball, you’d expect bettors to at least consider that defenses will figure in games and lead to a number of UNDERs. Fortunately or unfortunately, research has it that most people love high-scoring games and that often influences their betting decisions, as they channel their expectations into the betting lines and wager mostly on the OVER, even in instances that it is ill-advised to do so. But then again, you wouldn’t really blame these bettors, would you? I mean, with players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo known to be goal-machines in soccer and the likes of Stephen Curry known to light it up in the NBA, your mind can easily be wired to expect high-scores whenever such players take to the field.

Betting Trends in College Sports are Usually Sharper than in the Pros

Going by the competitive nature of sports in the Pros, going on long winnings streaks or keeping certain trends intact is usually very hard. In college sports, it’s the exact opposite, with most dominant teams staying dominant year-in, year-out while the underwhelming schools continue to struggle, irrespective of roster turnovers. A good example here is the Florida State Seminoles football team that won 29 straight games between 2012–2014, including a national championship in the 2012-13 season. The other example is the Kansas Jayhawks basketball team that hasn’t won the national championship since 2008, but boasts of a ridiculous 206–9 ( .958) win record at their home court, the Allen Fieldhouse, under head coach Bill Self, a record that includes win streaks of 69, 33, and a currently-active streak of 40 entering the 2016 season. When you play Kansas at home, it is therefore almost given that the Jayhawks will be winning that game.

First Games in the Pro Leagues are Risky to Bet On
On one hand, the fact that teams are often in transition during the preseason or at the start of the season comes with the advantage that you can find lines that aren’t so sharp, which can lead to good profits. On the other hand, surprises come aplenty during the start of the season, including false-starters, underrated teams playing well and overrated teams underwhelming with iffy performances. As such, it is advisable to be keep away from these lines—like NBA and NFL preseason—unless you are really sure that you’ve covered your bases.
