Friday: Brooklyn Nets +5.5 and Denver Nuggets -2. - 2/5

Thursday's Top Play: Portland Trailblazers at a pick'em. - 2/4

Wednesday: Miami Heat +3.5, Detroit Pistons +4, Brooklyn Nets +6.5. - 2/3

Tuesday: Miami Heat +4. - 2/2

Monday: Brooklyn Nets +7.5. This is a great spot to throw 10% of whatever you're betting on the moneyline at +260 as well! Could happen! - 2/1

Sunday: We can't find any clear edges so we're going to take a pass today. We kind of liked Minnesota but they don't have a very good history at the Moda Center and we've heard that Karl Anthony Towns may be sick. No reason to force the action so we're going to take a pass. For those who aren't aware, our college hoops picks are hitting well over 60%. Start following if you're not already! Good luck today! - 1/31

Saturday: Memphis Grizzlies -3.5. - 1/30

Friday: Phoenix Suns +8.5. - 1/29

Monday: Philadelphia 76ers +9.5, Portland Trailblazers +4.5, Boston Celtics -1.5, Houston Rockets +5, Atlanta Hawks -7.5. - 1/18

Sunday: BRUTAL loss yesterday with John Wall missing a game tying layup at the buzzer. We're passing today as we can't find any value on today's card. - 1/17

Saturday: Washington Wizards +1. Lots to like here... The Celtics are playing their 4th game in 5 nights and 7th game in the last 10 days. That's pretty brutal and fatigue may play a factor here. The Wiz are heating up with wins in 4 of their last 5 games and are shooting 48% from the field during that stretch. Washington has won 3 of the last 4 at home in this matchup and should have some nice motivation here as the Celtics have blown them out in their last 2 meetings. - 1/16

Friday: Houston Rockets +1. - 1/15

Thursday: Sacramento Kings/Utah Jazz UNDER 200.5 points. - 1/14

Wednesday: Denver Nuggets +9.5. - 1/13

Tuesday: Dallas Mavericks +5.5. - 1/12

Monday: Brooklyn Nets +14.5. - 1/11

Sunday: Milwaukee Bucks/New York Knicks OVER 198 points. - 1/10

Saturday: Washington Wizards +2.5. - 1/9

Friday: Washington Wizards +2. - 1/8

Thursday: Philadelphia 76ers +9. Those who play with multiple sportsbooks should check this line at all their books because we've seen it at +9.5 at a few places. - 1/7

Wednesday: BRUTAL loss last night as our under play did so by 18 points at the end of regulation but went into OT. We were still in good shape at the end of overtime, but got scorched by another tie which put the game into double OT. Sick! Today we like the New Orleans Pelicans at -5.5. Better luck to us today! - 1/6

Tuesday NBA Pick: Sacramento Kings/Dallas Mavericks UNDER 214 points. - 1/5

Monday: San Antonio Spurs/Milwaukee Bucks OVER 192 points. - 1/4

Sunday: Passing. - 1/3

Saturday: Milwaukee Bucks +1.5. - 1/2

Friday: Orlando Magic/Washington Wizards OVER 203.5 points. - 1/1

Thursday: Milwaukee Bucks +6.5. - 12/31

Wednesday: Brooklyn Nets +7.5. - 12/30

Tuesday: Denver Nuggets +6. Cleveland is playing their 4th game in 5 nights. We recommend putting 20% of your wager on the moneyline at +190 as well. - 12/29

Monday: Toronto Raptors +1.5. - 12/28

Sunday: Los Angeles Lakers +10. Memphis's slow pace and low scoring tendency doesn't justify being favored by double digits. - 12/27

Saturday: Denver Nuggets +14. - 12/26

Thursday: No games scheduled. - 12/24

Wednesday: Washington Wizards +1.5. - 12/23

Tuesday: Philadelphia 76ers +10. - 12/22

Monday: Our Sixers play tanked yesterday but don't let that fool you into not playing them in the future. They have performed so poorly that oddsmakers are overadjusting lines to a ridiculous level and will continue to do so as long as the public's perception of them is bad. This creates a great value play situation for us over the next month or so as bettors have cold feet and will be slow to react as Philly starts becoming a covering machine. The books will of course mimic their opinion. We lost yesterday, but will come out ahead in the long term playing Philly. If last night's game was played 100x, the 76ers would cover 57-65 of those contests and that's how we approach sports betting. Today or tomorrow doesn't matter (As long as you're exercising proper money management), it's the long term that we're looking to conquer. Monday's card is pretty weak. The only value we found is with the Kings at +2.5. - 12/21

Sunday: Philadelphia 76ers +16.5. - 12/20

Saturday: Houston Rockets +1. - 12/19

Friday: Before getting into today's game, we'd like to take last night's bad beat as an opportunity to teach us all a lesson about money management. We LOVED this game as we had it pegged to go under by around 10-12 points. As you know, it was cruising for an easy UNDER by 15 points and then we got slammed by overtime in which it flew way over the total. My point here is that no matter how good a game looks, one should never bet more than 1 unit. This is a perfect example of "anything can happen" when betting on games. As ugly as this outcome was, we've seen worse! Back on our horse looking forward to our next opportunity! Tonight we like the Memphis Grizzlies getting +2.5 at Dallas. The Mavs haven't been playing much defense lately as evidenced by them allowing over 47% from the field to opponents in 5 of their last 6 games. We're not a huge fan of trends but the Griz have beaten Dallas in 4 of their last 5 meetings and in the most recent two games, Memphis shot 53%. We're on the Griz at +2.5. Get on this quick because it may very well go down to a pick'em by tip off. - 12/18

Thursday: Toronto Raptors/Charlotte Hornets UNDER 195.5. - 12/17

Wednesday: Brooklyn Nets +4. - 12/16

Tuesday: Another short card with no value so we're going to pass. Don't get sucked into forcing plays when there's no advantages to be had. That's when the bookie takes the upper hand on you and your bankroll starts to slide. - 12/15

Monday: Phoenix Suns +4. - 12/14

Sunday: We checked Sunday's 4 game card from head to toe and couldn't identify any advantages so we're passing. "There's always another game". No need to force the action. We recommend checking out our NHL capper as he is ON FIRE lately! You don't need to be a hockey fan to make money betting it! - 12/13

Saturday: Rough game last night with the Sixers. If that game was played 100x under the same set of circumstances, Philly would cover 65% of the time. That's the proper way to approach games and despite the loss, it was the right side. We'll get'em next time! Today we like the Charlotte Hornets at -2. This is the ultimate sandwich game tied in with negative emotion as the Celtics lost a TOUGH high soring game vs. Golden State last night in which they lost by 5 points. Furthermore, they had to catch a flight afterwards to travel to Charlotte. Lastly, while we're not a huge fan of pro teams "looking ahead", it doesnt help that their next game is against LeBron and the Cavs. We like Charlotte to win easily Saturday night. - 12/12

Friday: Congrats to all who squeeked out that teaser last night. The Kings just about blew it! Tonight we like the Philadelphia 76ers at +9. For those of you who are adventurous, we believe the Sixers have a shot of winning this one straight up so a 10% of your regular bet size on the moneyline is in order here. Good luck! - 12/11

Thursday: 2-Team 5 point teaser including the Brooklyn Nets, taking them down from -7 to -2 and the Sacramento Kings, taking them down from -6 to -1. Bet this game at the sportsbook with the best teaser odds online: Island Sportsbook. - 12/10

Wednesday: Los Angeles Lakers +7.5. - 12/9

Tuesday: Houston Rockets/New Jersey Nets UNDER 207 points. - 12/8

Sunday: Brooklyn Nets +10.5. - 12/6

Saturday NBA Play of the Day: Milwaukee Bucks +2. - 12/5

Friday: Detroit Pistons -6.5. - 12/4

Thursday: We scoured tonight's 6 game card from head to toe and couldn't find any clear cut advantes so we're taking a pass. - 12/3

Wednesday: Indiana Pacers +2. Get this one quick as we expect the line to go down. - 12/2

Tuesday: Brooklyn Nets +3. - 12/1

Monday: Chicago Bulls +3.5. - 11/30

Sunday: Phoenis Suns/Toronto Raptors OVER 203 points. - 11/29

Saturday: Brooklyn Nets +10. - 11/28

Friday: Today's pick is the Washington Wizards at +3.5. - 11/27

Thursday: Congrats on yesterday's winner! We wish they were all that easy! There are no games scheduled today. We hope you and yours have a GREAT Thanksgiving!

Sunday: Denver Nuggets +11. - 11/22

Saturday: Philadelphia 76ers +14. - 11/21

Friday: Boston Celtics -9. - 11/20

Thursday: Too many questionable/unstable variables in today's 3 games so we're taking a pass. - 11/19

Wednesday: Boston Celtics on the moneyline at -190. - 11/18

Coaching Change: Houston Rockets head coach Kevin McHale was fired. Team management stated that players weren't responding to him anymore. J.B. Bickerstaff has been named interim coach. - 11/18

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.
