Warriors To Respond To Rockets Onslaught

The Houston Rockets bounced back from their defeat in game one of the Western Conference Finals with a resounding performance to defeat the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets struggled to match the accuracy of Golden State from the field as Kevin Durant and Klay Thompson put them to the sword. However, Houston put on an offensive clinic in game two, putting 127 points on the board. Mike D’Antoni’s men were well below-par outside of James Harden in their shooting from the field. The response was led by Eric Gordon, who came off the bench to score 27 points. Gordon made 16 of his 29 shots from the field, including an incredible feat of six of his nine three-pointers. Harden was his consistent...

Will Celtics Continue Surge To NBA Finals?

The Boston Celtics put forward a fine performance to defeat the Cleveland Cavaliers in game two of the Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavs responded from their loss in game one with a fine effort in the opening quarter. LeBron James led a counterpunch as the visitors took an early lead in the contest. He scored 21 points in the first 12 minutes of the game and Tyronn Lue’s men held a healthy advantage heading into the second half at the TD Garden. However, the Celtics rallied through Terry Rozier, who was the integral part in their surge in the third. Boston scored 36 points to rock the Cavs before taking the lead. From that point onwards Brad Stevens’ side were in complete control of the...

Warriors To Take Control Of Western Finals

The Golden State Warriors made a statement in game one of the NBA Western Conference Finals, hammering the Houston Rockets on the road. The Rockets had claimed the top seed in the West with a franchise-record 65-win campaign. Mike D’Antoni’s men had edged their contests with Golden State over the course of the season and would have entered the series with confidence. However, the visitors put on an outstanding display in the Toyota Center. The defending champions reminded the NBA of their quality as Kevin Durant was unstoppable on the court, sinking his shots at an unbelievable rate to put Houston on the rack. Durant notched 37 points during the contest, while Klay Thompson found his form...

LeBron And Cavs To Bounce Back In Game Two

The Boston Celtics put down a statement in the opening match of the Eastern Conference Finals, hammering the Cleveland Cavaliers. Brad Stevens’ men blitzed LeBron James and company in the first quarter to take control of the contest. There was nothing the All-Star could do to stop their dominance as the home side romped to a 108-83 victory at the TD Garden. The Celtics’ key players were on form as Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum continued to display their potential with fine outings, while Al Horford was a fearsome presence on the court. Marcus Morris offered a surprise contribution, notching 21 points, while guarding James. The Cavs’ offense was not able to keep pace with Boston throughout...

Rockets To Defeat Warriors In Conference Finals Game One

The Golden State Warriors are one series away from reaching the NBA Finals for the fourth season in a row. The Houston Rockets stand in their path, having denied the Warriors the number one seed in the Western Conference. Mike D’Antoni’s men will have home-court advantage for the opening two matches of the Conference Finals and cannot afford to waste the opportunity to put the reigning champions under pressure. Houston won a franchise record 65 games over the course of the campaign to secure the top seed, with James Harden excelling once again. The 28-year-old will be the key man in his side’s battle to win their first title since 1995. The Warriors will be in unfamiliar territory starting...

Cavs To Edge Out Celtics In Eastern Conference Finals Opener

For the second year in a row the Boston Celtics and the Cleveland Cavaliers will face off in the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. The Cavaliers were the second seed in the Eastern Conference last season and were forced to play on the road in the opening two matches of the series. However, they eased past Brad Stevens’ men as LeBron James and Kyrie Irving guided the team to a 4-1 victory, including three wins at the TD Garden. Boston once again have home-court advantage in the opening two matches, and although Irving is now a Celtic, he won’t be in action having suffered a season-ending knee injury. The Celtics have performed well in the post-season thus far, even with their plethora of injuries....

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
25% Free Play
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:

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