Rockets To Turn Screw In Western Conference Finals

However, the visitors were able to rally to take a lead into the break as James Harden found his from distance. Like all true champions Golden State issued a response themselves to pull ahead once again as Steph Curry matched the performance on his counterpart, seemingly nailing every shot from the perimeter. The counterpunch from Steve Kerr’s side would have been enough to floor most of...

The Golden State Warriors stamped their authority on the Western Conference Finals by dominating the Houston Rockets in game three of the series. The Rockets hit back after their defeat in game one with an emphatic performance at Toyota Center. Questions were asked of Steph Curry after his underwhelming display. However, the two-time MVP silenced his critics with an outstanding display to put the Warriors back in command of the series. Curry top scored for Golden State with 35 points, finding his form from the field after struggling with a one-in-eight display in his last outing.

Here is how our Tips Work!

Here at SportsBettingOnline, we would like to offer something special to our players, weekly free picks for the day’s best NBA matchups. With the NBA in full swing, I’m here to offer you some great picks a couple times a week.

I’m Joe Franklin, I’ve been betting sports for over 10 years and I have been a profitable NBA bettor for as long as I can remember. I use many factors when deciding which teams to back each day, and one of the most important is choosing the correct sportsbook. We’ve listed out top 5 picks below.

Top NBA Sportsbooks

50% up to $500
100% up to $500
50% up to $1000
50% up to $2500
100% Cash up to $250

The most important aspect of NBA Betting is keeping up on the latest injuries, often times injuries are not known until closer to tip off and a big injury can send the line in another direction.

I also, do my homework. The NBA is my life during the regular season as I am watching games or researching picks. I read local reports from writers all across the country and I am up to date on the latest happenings.

I understand the team chemistry and the frenetic pace of this year’s lockout shortened season. Teams are tired and vulnerable more often, keeping track of team chemistry and fatigue are essential. In addition, I’ll be posting the best line I can find along with my picks to give our readers, a great bet and a good price!

How it works:

A couple times a week I will post a few plays for that night’s NBA action, depending on how much a like a certain play, I will bet a set number of units.

I don’t like to differentiate too much from the amount I bet, so my selections will usually only be for 1 or 2 units per play. A unit is your standard bet amount for your bankroll, be sure to follow a bankroll strategy that works for you, this usually only risking 2% to 5% of your bankroll on any given day.

I’ll post the plays at least a few hours before game time and recommend a reputable sportsbook with the best line. In addition to that, I’ll post my win/loss record and my net units for the season.

I’m going to start with a bankroll of 100 units. So if my bankroll is $1000, then I will have 100 $10 units to wager with. After each night of games, I’ll update my current bankroll to see how we have performed to date. I’ll use the following format:

Starting Bank: 100
Current Bank: 100
Profit / Loss:

If you wish to send me questions, comments or feedback, just send a mail to joe at

Best of luck with all your picks this season. Thanks!
