  England and Uruguay are both coming off losses in their first game in the group stage, and both teams are sitting in last place with 0 points, behind both Italy and Costa Rica. England had a tough fought match against Italy, but unfortunately they could not penetrate Italy’s iron curtain of a defense. Uruguay whom was a heavy favorite in the game, jumped to an early 1-0 lead against Costa Rica, but in the second half they were shell shocked by the Ticos, and gave up 3 goals, and suffered a humiliating loss.   Now this Thursday at 3pm eastern time England and Uruguay will be facing off in a crucial group match, where the loser will be pretty much be eliminated and their World Cup dreams washed away. This is basically a playoff game, because a win would be huge for either team. Uruguay played as if they thought they were just going to be given a win against Costa Rica. They didn’t realize that they would actually have to play soccer and earn the victory. At least with England they gave Italy a run for their money and Daniel Sturridge and Raheem Sterling both looked very sharp in the game. Unfortunately, for England, between Italy’s stout defense and precise offensive attack, it was not enough to defeat the Italians. England is going to have their hands full against Uruguay, because you can bet that Uruguay is not going to over look England, and Uruguay will have Luis […]

Tie me Up

The Miami Heat are in an unfamiliar situation for this year’s playoffs, they are trailing. It is going to take a super human effort from LeBron James and the rest of the Miami Heat to tie this series up at 2 apiece. The Heat were leading late in the first game, however once James left the game with cramps, the entire team cramped out and lost the game by 15 points. In game 2 the Heat needed LeBron to take over, but even though he had a terrific game scoring 35 points they only won by 2. Then in game 3 when Miami got their first chance of playing at home, they were embarrassed in a game that it seemed like they were not even a part of. When you break down the first three games it does not look very encouraging for the Miami Heat’s chance for a 3-Peat. The Spurs have won their two games by a respective 15 points and 19 points, and the one game that the Heat won, they needed a late 3 pointer by Bosh with 1:18 remaining to help squeak by the Spurs. It is becoming clear through out this series that even though James is the best player in the world, the Spurs are the best team in the world. Game 4 will be in Miami tonight at 9pm eastern, and it is very interesting that in a series where the Spurs have clearly been the dominant team the best sportsbooks have the spread at a very high -5 for […]

Beat the Heat: How to bet Game 2 of the NBA Finals
best sportsbook

The San Antonio Spurs are focused on their mission at hand, which is to “Beat the Heat!” Last season in game 6 of the NBA Finals, the league was already roping off the court to bring out the trophy, but it took a miraculous falling out of bounds 3 pointer by Ray Allen to crash the party and help the Heat repeat for the title. It is nearly a year later and these two teams are back in the Finals again, and the Heat are looking to end the season with a 3-Peat, while the Spurs are looking to avenge last year’s devastating Finals defeat. It took a little luck, and a lot of Heat to beat the Heat in game 1, but the Spurs were able to rally back from a 7 point deficit with 9:38 remaining in the game. There was an electrical failure at the arena, which resulted in abnormally hot conditions on the court that reached as high as 90 degrees. Unfortunately, for the Heat, their super star player Lebron James had a serious cramping issue that resulted in him not being able to finish the game. The Spurs were like sharks smelling blood in the water when Lebron had to leave the game, and as a result they closed out the game on a 31-9 point run, and finished the game with a 15 point victory, resulting in a 1-0 lead in the series. Game 2 will take place at prime time on Sunday night at 8pm in […]

Pacers taking it to 6
best sportsbook

The Indiana Pacers have really dug themselves into a pretty deep hole. They have lost 3 straight games to the Miami Heat, and have progressively gotten more dominated in each lose. The Pacers had the best record in the Eastern Conference during the regular season and were rewarded with the number one seed as well as home court advantage throughout the playoffs. Now all that is history and the Pacers are staring down elimination. As this series has progressed, Miami has been steadily gaining momentum, and proving to the Pacers, and the rest of the world why they are the two time defending NBA Champions. After letting up 107 points in the first game, Miami’s defense has rebounded nicely, and has been able to put more pressure on the Pacers, and has caused them to have more turnovers. On Wednesday at 8:30pm Eastern the Indiana Pacers will host the Miami Heat for Game 5. The Heat are up 3-1 in the series and will be looking to put the final nail in the Pacers coffin. But like Chris Bosh said last series when they faced a Brooklyn Nets team who was on the verge of elimination, “it’s hard to match the intensity of a team that is desperate for a victory.” The Pacers are going to be in front of their home fans, and the Pacers are going to do everything in their power to give themselves a chance to win and keep this series alive.

+7 is the Expert Pick
sports gambling

So far this Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat series has lived up to the hype, and has been everything that the sports gambling community thought it would be. A tight series where every loose ball is being roughly contested, and lots of physical, hard nosed aggressive effort from everyone. After the Pacers cruised to an 11 point victory in the first game, the Heat needed their money players to bail them out at the end of game 2 so they could avoid going down 0-2 in the series. Miami’s Defense rebounded from game 1 where they allowed 107 points. In game 2 the Heat’s defense clamped down at two very strategic points in the game. Late in the 1st half the Heat only allowed 9 points in a 10 minute stretch and in the final 7 minutes and 19 seconds of the game the Heat only allowed 10 points. The team that can get more production from their defense will most likely be the team that will be representing the Eastern Conference in the NBA Finals. This series has all the feel of a 7 game epic, so it is going to be hard to predict an outcome from one game to the next. These two teams know each other well, and it is going to be a close dog fight to the bitter end. The sports gambling sites have already posted a line for the Saturday game in Miami at 8:30 eastern time, and the Heat are a pretty large […]

The Heat had a ferocious 24-9 run over a 7 minute span in the third quarter, which helped put the game securely out of reach.

The Nets will get a second chance at the Heat in game 2 in Miami on Thursday at 7:05pm eastern.

The Oklahoma City Thunder have the NBA’s scoring champion and most likely MVP in Kevin Durant, however in the first round of the NBA playoffs they are on the brink of elimination against the Memphis Grizzlies. These two teams are so evenly matched that they have had their last 4 games decided in overtime. Now the Oklahoma City Thunder will have to travel to Memphis, and will need to come up with a big game if they want to keep their playoff dreams alive. Kevin Durant has struggled in this series, and he will need to find a way to rebound from his lack luster performance, and disappointing missed free throw and 3 point shot at the end of the game. The trends are definitely not in the Thunders favor. They are 0-3-1 against the spread in their last 4 games following a straight up loss. They are also 0-3-1 against the spread in their last 4 road games. Whereas the Grizzlies are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last 4 games.

The action is already coming in split, because sports gambling fans are finding it difficult to decide who to wager on.

Expertly looking to take control of series

The LA Clippers have managed to win the last two games against the Golden State Warriors, and have now taken back home court advantage with a 2-1 lead in the series. The Clippers will be in Oakland for game 4 on Sunday at 3:30pm eastern, and they will be looking to let their winning momentum carry them to a win, getting the nail ready for the coffin. The key for the Clippers is to just continue to do what is working for them, which is controlling the paint with the Griffin-Jordan duo. Griffin had another 30 plus performance in game 3, and continues to give Golden State match-up problems under the basket. A big reason why the Clippers have dominated inside, is because the Warriors starting center Andrew Bogut is out indefinitely with a fractured rib. If the Clippers want to win this series they will have to continue to take advantage of the inside and feed the rock to Griffin and Jordan. Before game 3 the Clippers had lost 15 out of 17 in Oakland and 5 in a row, but with a nail-biting finish they were able to snap their road losing streak to the Warriors. The Clippers are 5 and 2 against the spread in their last 7 road games versus a team with a home winning percentage of .600 or greater. They are also 21 and 8 against the spread in their last 29 Sunday games. The best sportsbooks in the world have the Clippers as the road […]

Warriors will expertly overcome previous blowout
sports gambling

The Golden State Warriors had a huge upset in game one by beating the LA Clippers at home, even though the Clippers were a -7 ½ point favorite. In game 2 the Warriors were an even bigger underdog at +8, and unfortunately for any sports gambling fan that wagered on the Warriors, they would have needed to be getting +41 points if they were going to cover. The Warriors were absolutely destroyed in the 2nd game of the series, against a Clippers team that was led by Blake Griffin’s career high 35 points, and by a team that set their own franchise record for most points in a playoff game and largest margin of victory in a playoff game. Obviously if the Warriors are going to bounce back in game 3 on Thursday night in Golden State, then they will have to stop Griffin, but they will also have to give some support to Stephen Curry. He was the only Warrior that decided to play in game 2, scoring 24 points, but if they want to have a chance at winning the 3rd game, then he is going to need so help from fellow starting team mates, Iguodala, Thompson, Lee, and O’Neal. The good news for the Warriors is that they will be traveling home for the 3rd game, and they are 12-2-2 against the spread in their last 16 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points. They are also 4-1 against the spread in their last […]

Rock Hard Expert Pick from Dick

The Colorado Rockies will be going against the Padres in San Diego at 10:10pm eastern time, and both of these teams are looking to be more consistent. The Rockies are one of the highest scoring teams in baseball, ranking 2nd behind only the White Sox, with 70 runs. However, their pitching keeps failing them, by allowing a total of 69 runs so far this season. For the Padres, their pitching has been decent, but they have been atrocious with scoring runs, in which they rank last in the National League with only 33 runs batted in for the season.   Jordan Lyles who is looking to go 3-0 for the season, which is even more impressive because he was not even supposed to be in the Rockies starting rotation, but was given a chance when Tyler Chatwood got injured. In his last outing against the high scoring White Sox, he pitched extremely well giving up only 1 run in 6 2/3 innings in a 8-1 victory. If he can pitch half as good as he did against the White Sox, then he should have no problem tonight against this anemic Padres lineup.   Erick Stults will be pitching for the Padres, and he is coming into the game with an 0-2 record and 5.59 ERA. His stats look worse then they are, because he actually has not pitched that poorly, it’s just he is not receiving any help offensively. In his last outing against the Indians, he allowed 2 runs […]
