Warriors On Course For NBA Dynasty

The Golden State Warriors returned to the peak of the NBA by hammering the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Finals to claim their second Championship in three years. The Warriors had lost their crown to LeBron James and company in the previous campaign. They suffered the indignity of losing three-straight games to lose their title at Oracle Arena. However, the off-season provided Steve Kerr’s men with the perfect opportunity to reload and they pulled off one of the most stunning deals in NBA history. The Warriors lured 2014 MVP Kevin Durant away from their Western Conference rivals the Oklahoma City Thunder, bolstering their already-formidable unit into an unstoppable juggernaut. The move for Durant...

LeBron Remains The Key For The Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ quest to defend their NBA Championship was denied by the Golden State Warriors in the Finals. LeBron James and company successfully forged a way back to the Championship series for the third year on the bounce, but were undone by the quality of Steve Kerr’s men. The 32-year-old had committed his future to the club by re-signing a three-year deal before the start of the season. He was joined by JR Smith on a four-year contract, although Timofey Mozgov left to join the Los Angeles Lakers. LeBron continued to operate at the peak of his powers, despite playing his 14th season in the NBA. He averaged 26.2 points and 37.8 minutes per game – the latter being highest amount...

San Antonio Spurs Will Remain Challengers

The San Antonio Spurs made a strong start to life adjusting without club legend Tim Duncan, reaching the Western Conference Finals, only to be defeated by the Golden State Warriors. Duncan opted to retire at the end of the 2015-16, concluding his 19 years with the Spurs, which included five NBA titles and two MVP awards. His absence could have had a dramatic effect on the team for the 2016-17 campaign, although head coach Gregg Popovich did ensure that his side retained experience with the re-signing of Manu Ginobili and the deal to bring Pau Gasol to San Antonio. Kawhi Leonard picked up the mantle from Duncan as the Spurs’ leader on the court. He continued his rise as one of the NBA’s stars,...

Boston Celtics Can Take The Next Step

The Boston Celtics enjoyed their strongest NBA season since the departures of Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett, but their campaign was ended in the Eastern Conference Finals by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since the Celtics opted to cash in on their veterans – who have since retired – Brad Stevens and general manager Danny Ainge have been tasked with a rebuild operation. In the 2015-16 term , Boston displayed promise, but were defeated in the first round of the playoffs by the Atlanta Hawks. The club attempted to respond by luring Kevin Durant to the TD Garden, but not even the assistance of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady could prevent the 2014 MVP from joining the Golden State Warriors. However,...

Paul Addition Increases Rockets’ Urgency

James Harden enjoyed an incredible campaign as the Houston Rockets produced a strong regular season, but their quest to reach the NBA Finals fell short once again. Kevin McHale paid the price for a step back in the 2015-16 term as the club barely reached the playoffs and were then consequently dumped out in the first round by the Golden State Warriors. The Rockets hired former Phoenix Suns head coach Mike D’Antoni to replace McHale and the club enjoyed great success under the first year of his tenure, resulting in the 66-year-old winning Coach of Year for the second time in his career. Due to their underwhelming 2015-16 season, the Rockets were active in free agency adding Ryan Anderson and...

Raptors Must Cash In On NBA Window

The Toronto Raptors’ post-season was ended for the second term on the bounce by the Cleveland Cavaliers, suffering a whitewash defeat in the Eastern Conference Semi-Finals. The Raptors had reached the Conference Finals last season, and although they put in a series of decent performances, Dwane Casey’s men were beaten 4-2 by the Cavs. Toronto were able to lock down DeMar DeRozan to a long-term deal before the start of the 2016-17 campaign, but did lose center Bismack Biyombo to the Orlando Magic. However, the club appeared well set to make another charge into the playoffs, with DeRozan and point guard Kyle Lowry on the roster, while Jonas Valanciunas took another step forward in his development. The...

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!
