Betting NBA Basketball - Saturday Night Live

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/10/2014 5:30:27 AM

Saturday Night Live takes on a new version this weekend with several enticing games on the National Basketball Association schedule so let’s look at what should be some good value for online sports betting players to consider.

Western Conference rivals Memphis and the Los Angeles Clippers tip off with the Grizzlies in the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

If the playoffs started earlier this week, these two teams would have met in the first match-up in the playoffs and that will not be lost on the competitors.

At this time of the season, every game is crucial. Memphis comes to town in the midst of an extended road run but they had a day since playing Portland on Thursday. The Clippers were on the road the same night as they played in New Orleans.

Despite playing in the second half of a back-to-back, the Clippers beat this team in January when Memphis came out cold. But there were reasons for the dull effort.

The usually steady Mike Conley had an off game for Memphis shooting only 2 for 10 and strong forward Marresse Speights could only manage 2 points.

This time, Zach Randolph will be back in the line-up down low and don’t be surprised if the newly-acquired Gilbert Arenas gets some important time off the pine.

If Memphis is a slight pup, take the online sports book points and run.

Toronto will be in the Windy City on Saturday and it could be a long, cold night for the Raptors They had to deal with the pesky New York Knicks on Friday and are generally out manned on most nights anyway.

This was the same recipe for disaster earlier in the season when Toronto hosted Indiana, but had the Bulls 24 hours later and it got ugly.

How ugly? Toronto could only put up 64 points and that wasn’t even their worst offensive production of the season.

Only one Toronto starter had double figures, they were out rebounded and only shot 35% from the floor. It was obvious they could not penetrate as they only got to the free throw line 7 times and only made one.

Three Bulls had double/doubles. Derrick Rose had 18 points and 11 dimes. Carlos Boozer, who is playing much better, now, had 17 points and 13 rebounds and Taj Gibson came off the bench to pop with 11 points and pull down 12 rebounds.

Factor in the concept that Richard Hamilton did not play nor did underrated point guard C. J. Watson and the win for Chicago becomes even more impressive.

Recently John Lukas has been inserted into games early and often and has been able to change the tempo immediately. His dad was a former NBA player and coach and this rookie is fearless.

The Bulls are on a mission. They are well coached, as Coach Tom Thibodeau just became the faster coach in history to 100 wins, but they play as a team, make the extra pass, can get out and run and beat you in an up and down game and they have arguably the best point guard in the game, Rose, running the show and not show boating.

This is a pick a number game. Lay the lumber, look for Toronto to try early, and then throw in the betting websites towel.
