Detroit Pistons at Philadelphia 76ers

sports betting siteThe Detroit Pistons and the Philadelphia 76ers meet for the fourth and final time this season.
The Detroit Pistons were able to snap an ugly 10-game skid last night with an impressive 105-95 win over the Grizzlies despite playing without the injured Greg Monroe. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope led the scoring with 24 points while Andre Drummond added 16 points and 16 rebounds, but the night belonged to Reggie Jackson who broke out with 23 points and a career-high 20 assists. As a team, the Pistons were able to dominated the second half by 66-41, erasing a 15-point half time deficit and improve to 24-43 on the season.

the Philadelphia 76ers have lost 12 of their last 15 and are coming off a 108-89 loss to the Celtics. Nerlens Noel continued his strong form with a team-high 18 points, Ish Smith added 16 points and Hollis Thompson added 13 points but the Sixers were simply blown out of the water right from tipoff as they fell behind by 38-18 after the first quarter and could never threaten to come back. The Sixers have actually been pretty competitive lately, winning two of their last five and staying within single digits in the other two losses, but this was a loss cause before halftime.

San Antonio Spurs at New York Knicks

San Antonio SpursEven without the veteran swingman, they should have more than enough Tuesday night to handle the woeful New York Knicks, whom they already defeated this season despite being very short-handed.

San Antonio went 5-1 on a recent homestand, which culminated with Sunday’s 123-97 blowout of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Kawhi Leonard led eight players in double figures with 15 points, while Danny Green and Marco Belinelli scored 13 points apiece.
San Antonio wound up with a season-high 38 assists on 49 baskets and made 58.3 percent for the game. Tiago Splitter (12), Tony Parker (11), Ginobili (11), Tim Duncan (10) and Cory Joseph (10) rounded out the double-digit scorers for the Spurs, who rebounded from an overtime loss versus Cleveland to win for the seventh time in the past eight tries.

New York (13-53), however, owns the league’s worst record and has lost 15 of 18, averaging 91.2 points on 40.8 percent shooting in that span. The Knicks need to win half of their final 16 games to avoid finishing with the fewest victories in franchise history, set by the 1962-63 team that went 21-59.

The Knicks dropped a 102-89 decision against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday and were led by Alexey Shved and Andrea Bargnani. Both foreign players scored 18 points and Lance Thomas added 144 for the Knicks, who shot a respectable 43.8 percent and committed 13 turnovers.
The Knicks visited San Antonio on Dec. 10 and left with a 109-95 defeat, as Belinelli paced the hosts with 22 points. Hardaway had 23 points in that one for New York, which is 6-16 in the past 22 games in this series.

Portland Trail Blazers at Washington Wizards

sports betting siteThe Blazers head to Washington D.C. tonight to take on the Wizards in the second half of a road back-to-back. Portland dispatched the Raptors last night, 113-97.

The Trail Blazers will visit the Wizards in what should be a fun matchup between two of the more exciting teams in the NBA. Portland is currently in third in the Western Conference and playing some of its best ball of the season, winning eight of its last 10. Washington is reeling a little bit winning just five of its last 10. Both of these teams are expected playoff teams, so fans should be in for a hard-fought game.

Portland is playing the second of a five-game road trip. It is coming off of two of its best performances of the season, shooting 55 percent from the field and 49 percent from 3-point range while averaging 115.5 PPG. Games like this are making Portland look like a championship contender. It has won three straight since losing Wesley Matthews for the season and will look to make it four against the Wizards.

Washington has struggled as of late after a hot start to the season. Beal is finally back healthy, and Washington is looking to catch stride the last quarter of the season and grab home-court advantage in the first round of the playoffs. Although the Wizards have been playing poorly, they did win their last three by an average of almost 21 PPG. This is the last game of their homestand before a four-game Western Conference road trip, so they’ll want to get some momentum in front of their fans vs. Portland.

Portland defeated Washington, 103-96, on Jan. 24 in Rip City and was led by Aldridge’s 26 points and nine rebounds. Wall recorded 25 points in that one for the Wizards, who have lost two in a row in this series after winning three straight.

Washington is 4-1 in the last five meetings with Portland in DC.

Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas Mavericks

Los Angeles Clippers at Dallas MavericksCheck WagerWeb and find the best online betting site!!!!

The Dallas Mavericks play host to the Los Angeles Clippers tonight at the American Airlines Center.
After losing in disappointing fashion to begin their five-game homestand, the Dallas Mavericks admittedly need to make adjustments on the court in order to get back to playing at a high level.

Chandler Parsons returned to the court and led the way with 18 points, Monta Ellis had 17 while Amar’e Stoudemire added 15, but the Mavs were just horrible on defense. On too many possessions, the Cavaliers were able to swing the ball and find the open shooter uncontested on the perimeter and it really burned the Mavs as the Cavs sunk 15 of 32 threes. After the loss, Stoudemire publicly called out his teammates about their lack of effort, so expect an improved level of intensity tonight.

The Los Angeles Clippers have won five of their last seven overall and they’ll be looking for a third straight win after earning a marquee 120-108 win over the Thunder on Wednesday. Chris Paul had a monster game of 33 points and nine assists while playing great defense on Russell Westbrook, while JJ Redick added 25 points and Matt Barnes had 22 as the Clippers dominated the red-hot Thunder in their own building. As a team, the Clippers got off to a sensational start and poured on 100 points after three quarters thanks to 15 of 30 shooting from the three-point line, but the best part was that they were able to stifle the Thunder’s Westbrook, forcing him into 10 turnovers. With the win, LA improved to 42-23 on the season and 18-14 on the road which keeps them climbing up the Western standings.

The Clippers, who have won eight of 10 in the series, haven’t swept the Mavericks since taking all four meetings in 1993-94. They won 120-100 in Los Angeles on Jan. 10 and 115-98 on the road on Feb. 9.

They are also seeking a fourth straight victory in Dallas for the first time since a five-game winning streak there from March 18, 1992-March 8, 1994.

American Betting Odds

American odds have become incredibly commonplace, despite the fact that they are not as easy to read as other formats. As an example, American Odds read like this:

Odds To Win Super Bowl:

  • Team A: -150
  • Team B: +200
  • Team C: +600
  • Team D: +1000

With American odds, the number represented is how much you have to bet to win $100. If the number is preceded with a “+” sign, then you would risk less than $100 to win a wager worth $100. And, the opposite is true when the number is preceded with a “-” where the bettor would have to risk more than $100 just to win $100 of the wager.

In the example above, you can see that Team A has the lowest number of the group and are considered to be the favorite to win this bet. If you wagered on Team A to win the Super Bowl and they end up winning, you are going to need to risk more than $100 to win $100 as indicated by the “-” symbol preceding the payouts. In this particular example, a bettor would need to wager $150 to win $100.

On the opposite side of that, the other 3 teams in contention all pay better than 1 to 1 odds (risk less than $100 to win $100). Team B is at +200: risk $50 to win $100. Team C is at +600: risk $16.67 to win $100. Team D is at +1000: risk $10 to win $100.

Fractional Odds

Fractional betting odds are the easiest to understand. Just about every single sportsbook that caters to Americans has the option available for fractional odds. And, while they may seem daunting at first, you don’t really need to understand complex fractions in order to utilize these odds. Lets look at an example:

Odds To Win Fight:

  • Fighter A: 4/7
  • Fighter B: 3/2

In order to best understand these lines, you first need to look at the ratio to 1. In the example above, 4/7 odds is less than 1 and the opposite can be said for the other side as 3/2 is more than 1. Once you have determined this, you can figure out the favorite.

To figure out which side is favored, you simply need to figure out which is the lower number. In this case, Fighter A is at 4/7 odds which is less than 1 and Fighter B is at 3/2 odds which is more than 1. Fighter A’s wager is the clear favorite as it is the lower number.

So, how do you figure out what these pay? Again, we refer back to 4/7 being less than 1, and 3/2 being more than 1.

Anytime fractional odds are displayed at a value of less than 1, the bettor must risk more than they intend to win if the wager is a winner. And, the opposite can be said for if a fractional value is more than 1… that bet will pay more than what is risked.

As we said before, 4/7 odds are less than 1 so in this case, the bettor must risk $7 to win $4 from the wager. Then, 3/2 are more than 1 so when risking $2, the bettor will win $3 off the wager. As you can see, the payouts are in the fractional odds, you just need to know which way they go based on if they represent a value greater than or less than one.

Decimals

Decimal odds are slightly more confusing than most other types of odds. In fact, we prefer not to use them when we bet but that is just our preference. Regardless, we are going to give you a little insight into these lines, as we want to give you insight about all of the common types of odds available.

If you look into these odds, you will definitely come out a little bit confused unless you are from Europe where these odds are commonly used than American or Fractional odds. The multiplication game is not as straight forward with decimal odds. Let’s take a look at another example:

Odds To Be Next President:

  • Candidate A: 1.50
  • Candidate B: 2.45

When looking at decimal based odds, the same thing applies to them as all the other forms of odds when trying to determine the favorite… which ever is the lowest number is favored. In the example above, the favored candidate is Candidate A at 1.50 however Candidate B is only a little bit behind at 2.45

Figuring out the payouts is where decimal odds can get tricky, but you’ll soon learn a little trick that will make these very easy to understand.

The best way to start off look at these odds are to consider them to be monetary amounts based on what you will win if you wager $1 or one euro, one pound, etc… which includes the original wager. Be sure to keep that in mind when looking at the other odds types.

If Candidate A wins the election, every $1 wagered will win $.50 plus the original $1 wagered which equals $1.50 or 1.50 odds.

Candidate B: every $1 wagered earns $1.45 which equals $2.45 or 2.45 odds.
