    Stanley Cup Playoff Betting — Rangers-Lightning: Will Experience Difference in Goal Tell the Tale?

    Well, the New York Rangers have certainly proven themselves to be a "tough out," in the words of one of their players. They have demonstrated that they are indeed hard to beat when they go on the road and that when facing elimination, they are simply golden. The Blueshirts now have a 15-3 record over their last 18 games when their backs are against the wall,.....

    Baseball Betting Preview: Yankees Turn to A-Rod and Sabathia to Extend Streak

    If you asked some of the New York Yankees in private, they would probably admit that not having the whole Derek Jeter "Farewell Tour" as a distraction was probably a very beneficial thing this season. Last year this team went through some bumpy periods, and Joe Girardi, perhaps the most underrated manager in baseball, helped keep this team in the wild-card r.....

    NBA Playoff Betting: Curry Should Still Be a Concern For Warriors

    The Houston Rockets have to know that they aren't going to be going into every game with the motivation of having been humiliated last time out, and with the other team coming out of the locker room a little flat. So that means they are going to have to piece together some fundamental edges if they are to extend the Western Conference finals another game. No.....

    NBA Playoff Betting: Defense Has Carried the Day For Cavs

    There is no question that Lebron James performed one of the most remarkable in-game turnarounds in the history of the NBA playoffs the other night. James missed his first ten shots from the field, then proceeded to fill up the stat sheet, scoring 37 points with 18 rebounds and adding 13 assists, along with three steals, as the Cleveland Cavaliers extended th.....

    NBA Playoff Preview: Will Rockets Keep the Broom Away For Another Day?

    The Houston Rockets have been playing in a way that is so hard to explain that we won't even bother. They laid down and rolled over in a couple of games at the Staples Center against the Clippers, then mounted the most improbable comeback ever just when it looked like they were laying down again. And they were ultra-competitive in the first two games of the .....

    NBA Playoff Betting: Momentum Could Carry the Day For Houston

    There are plenty of reasons for the Houston Rockets to feel a little dejected after having lost the first two games of the Western Conference championship series. But considering what happened in those two games, there is reason for optimism as well. They return home after two very nice efforts in which a favorable bounce or two could have brought them victo.....

    NBA Playoff Betting: Would a “Return to Normalcy” Help Hawks in Game 2?

    Sometimes when we look at these playoff results we are trying to find some factors that perhaps were out of the ordinary and might allow the team that came out on the short end of a score to reverse things the next time around. Perhaps we have happened upon something like that with the Atlanta Hawks, who went down – and perhaps not swinging too hard – ag.....

    NBA Playoffs Preview: Warriors Go Small and Come Up Big

    As of Thursday morning, there is probably nobody in the Vietbet audience who knows for sure whether Dwight Howard, the All-Star center for the Houston Rockets, is going to make it to the opening tip of Game 2 in the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors (9 PM ET start time). Howard himself probably has the best idea, as he has been quic.....

    NBA Playoff Betting Preview: Do the Matchups Favor Hawks in Game 1?

    Despite the fact that they won 60 games this season, including a stretch where they went 33-2, a frightening run to say the least, the Atlanta Hawks don't seem to be getting enough respect from the oddsmakers. For example, even though they are the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference, as they move into their series against the Cleveland Cavaliers, which will de.....

    NBA Playoff Betting Preview: Is There an Angle For the Rockets Here?

    It's really a good thing that the Houston Rockets are brimming with confidence at the moment, because they are going to need it as they go into the Western Conference finals against the Golden State Warriors, a team that had their number, to say the least, during the regular season. Vietbet customers are well aware of the dominance Golden State exhibited ove.....

    NBA Betting Preview: Allen’s Participation Creates Dilemma For Grizzlies in Game 6

    It is not exactly the "hamstring heard 'round the world," as might be said about injuries suffered by Pau Gasol and Chris Paul in these NBA playoffs, but when Tony Allen is missing from the Memphis Grizzlies' lineup, it leaves a hole nonetheless. Allen is known by the basketball cognoscenti as well as Vietbet basketball bettors as a sublime defensive stopper.....

    NBA Betting Preview: Frontline Uncertainty Could Cause Insurmountable Problem For Bulls

    It is generally accepted among NBA betting observers that the Chicago Bulls' offense works best when it can have a legitimate post presence. That certainly seems to have borne itself out in the Eastern Conference playoff series against the Cleveland Cavaliers. And so logic would dictate that the Bulls could be in a lot of trouble as they try to stave off eli.....
