A rematch of the Eastern Conference Semifinals is on tap on Thursday night in the second half of the TNT double dip of NBA betting action, where the Miami Heat will hit the road against the Chicago Bulls.
The Pistons are just 7-10 SU on the year but in the watered-down Eastern Conference that is good enough for eighth in the standings. They are 5-5 SU at home but they come into this matchup with a 2-5 SU record on the road. Detroit is 8-9 against the spread on the year with a healthy 5-2 record ATS in those seven road games. The total has gone OVER in 11 of the 17 games.
The Hawks are coming off a 110-90 victory over New York this past Saturday as four-point road underdogs. They are now 6-4 straight-up (7-3 against the spread) on the year and just one game in back of Miami in the Southeast Division. They have now won four of their last five games both SU and ATS with the total staying UNDER in three of the contests.
The Bucks come into this contest at 2-3 straight-up on the year with a 3-2 record against the spread. This past Saturday they lost to Dallas 91-83 as three-point home underdogs with the total staying UNDER the 206.5-point line. The total has now stayed UNDER in three of their first five games.
The Miami Heat and the Brooklyn Nets will kick off the month of November with NBA betting action from the Barclays Center in the first of two games on ESPN on Friday night.
It’s another banner raising night in South Beach, as the 2013 NBA betting season begins with a flurry for the Miami Heat, as they take on one of their top contenders in the Eastern Conference this year, the Chicago Bulls.
San Antonio opened this best-of-seven showdown with a 92-88 victory in Game 1 as a five-point underdog on the road. It took a 2-1 edge with a 113-77 beatdown of the Heat as two-point home favorites in Game 3 and has now regained a 3-2 advantage by virtue of this past Sunday’s 114-104 win as a one-point underdog at home. The total has gone OVER in the last three games of this series after staying UNDER in the first two.
It has been a tale of two halves in the NBA Finals so far. In Game 1 of this best-of-seven series Miami faded in the fourth quarter to fall 92-88 as a five-point home favorite. This past Sunday night it ran away from the Spurs in the second half of a five-point ball game to cruise to a 103-84 victory as a 6.5-point favorite at home to even things up at one game apiece. The total stayed UNDER the 189.5-point line in both games.
Despite cruising to the Western Conference title with a 12-2 straight-up (10-4 against the spread) record in series victories over the Los Angeles Lakers, Golden State and Memphis, the Spurs came into the NBA Finals as +195 underdogs on the series price.
After an extended nine-day layoff as a result of a four-game sweep over Memphis in the Western Conference Finals, San Antonio will be back in action on Thursday night in Game 1 of the NBA Finals. The Spurs are hoping to pick-up where they left off after going 12-2 straight-up and 10-4 against the spread in their first 14 playoff games this year.
