Spurs Star Hangs'em Up: Tim Duncan Retires - 7/11

Sunday NBA Finals Championship Game 7 Pick: Posted gameday morning. - 6/19

Thursday NBA Finals Game 6 Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers on the moneyline at -130. - 6/16

Monday: With Draymond Green out, we're not really sure how this game will play out so we're taking a pass. - 6/13

Friday Game 4 Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers -2. - 6/10

Thursday: No games scheduled today. The NBA playoffs resume Friday. - 6/9

Wednesday NBA Finals Game 3 Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers -1. - 6/8

Sunday Game 2 Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers +6. - 6/5

Friday: No games scheduled. - 6/3

Thursday NBA Finals Game 1 Pick: Golden St. Warriors -6. - 6/2

Tuesday/Wednesday: No games scheduled. - 5/31 through 6/1

Memorial Day: Golden State Warriors -6.5 - 5/30

Saturday: Oklahoma City Thunder -3. - 5/28

Friday: Toronto Raptors +6. - 5/27

Thursday: Golden St. Warriors -7. - 5/26

Wednesday: Cleveland Cavs -10.5. Get on this quick as we expect the line to rise throughout the day. For those who are nervous about laying points this is a great game to get down on an open ended teaser. You can knock the number down 5 points (or more) and pair it up with something else down the road. This type of wager can be found at 5Dimes. - 5/25

Tuesday: OKC +1.5. - 5/24

Monday: Toronto Raptors +6. - 5/23

Sunday: Oklahoma City Thunder +3. - 5/22

Saturday: Toronto Raptors +5.5. - 5/21

Friday: No games scheduled. - 5/20

Thursday: Tonight's Raptors/Cavs spread of -12 offers absolutely no value. Toronto is a very unpredictable team on the road that can play well and lose by a bucket or get blown out and lose by 30. When situations like this arise, it's imperative that a bettor remain patient and take a pass. We get that many feel like they "need" action, but that approach prevents you from ever having a shot of beating his game long term. If you're a guy that absolutely has to get down on games each day, we recommend scaling your bet size down to 1/10th our normal bet. That way you still have something to root for while not wrecking your precious bankroll. Hitting the ATM or redepositing into your offshore account is miserable. Be smart and play it safe, only making a move when we feel that the advantage is on OUR side! - 5/19

Wednesday: Golden State Warriors -9. - 5/18

Tuesday: We'd like to see how these teams match up prior to taking a position. We're going to pass tonight. - 5/17

Monday: Golden St. Warriors -7.5. - 5/16

Sunday: Heat/Raptors UNDER 188.5. - 5/15

Saturday: No games scheduled. - 5/14

Friday: Congrats on last night's big win! We don't have a take on today's Raptors/Heat game. It really could go either way. With no advantage to be had, we're taking a pass. Enjoy your Friday! - 5/13

Thursday: Oklahoma City Thunder +1.5. - 5/12

Wednesday: Miami Heat/Toronto Raptors OVER 188.5 points. - 5/11

Tuesday: Rough beat last night with Portland blowing a fat lead and Curry catching fire. We think tonigt's OKC/S.A. line is right on and there is no value to be had, so we're stuck with having to take a pass. There's never any need to force the action! - 5/10

Monday Game 4: Portland Trailblazers +4.5. - 5/9

Sunday: Atlanta Hawks +5. - 5/8

Saturday: Portland Trailblazers +3.5. - 5/7

Friday: Spurs/Thunder UNDER 200.5 - 5/6

Thursday: Toronto Raptors -4.5. - 5/5

Wednesday NBA Playoffs Pick: Cleveland Cavaliers -7.5. - 5/4

Western Conference Semifinals Game 2: Portland Trailblazers +9.5. - 5/3

Sunday: Miami Heat -6. - 5/1

How to Bet

Point Spread - The most basic of basketball wagers.

Moneyline - For those that simply want to bet on a team to win straight up.

Totals - Also known as an over/under. This bet has nothing to do with who which team wins or by how many. You're simply predicting if both teams points scored will exceed or fall short of the posted total.

Parlays - Multi-team wager where all must win in order to get paid. Big risk and big reward.

Teasers - Multi-team bet where you get to move the line a certain amount of points on each game. All teams must cover the teased point spreads to cash.

Pleasers - The opposite of a teaser. You're "giving" points away, making this bet a much tougher proposition to win.

Prop Bets - Wagers not having to do with which team wins the game or by how many. These usually pertain to wagers on individual players points scored, rebounds, assists, steals, etc.

NBA Futures - Bet on your favorite team to win their division, conference or the NBA Finals. A great bet for those looking to risk very little for a potentially large payoff.
