Betting NBA Basketball Online - The Little Things

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/6/2014 10:12:11 PM

This current National Basketball Association season has been challenging to say the least for online sports betting enthusiasts and for players alike but this is the time to pay attention to detail as the little things can mean the difference between winning and losing on the court and in the wallet.

The New York Knicks have been paying some high-priced long distance fees this season. In a recent loss to the Miami Heat New York missed at least 25 shots from the three-point line for the second time this season.

You just can’t win in this league with a game plan like that. Never have been, never really will be unless something completely out of the blue happens.

First off, the other teams have no respect for a team that is just so soft that they have to jack it up from all over the place. Secondly and more importantly, you win with defense at crunch time. Every single year in the playoffs, the game slows down, teams are more selective and they are much more aware of protecting the ball.

Unless things change at the top in New York, meaning the coaching they will never win a title this way.

Very few players in the NBA can change the game without scoring but don’t tell that to Marcus Camby. The starting Portland center was held scoreless in a recent romp of the Suns but he pulled down 20 rebounds. That has happened only 10 other times in history and Hall of Famer Dennis Rodman did it 7 times.

One of the online sports book things that has been important to Philly this season is they have been able to rest their starters because they have been blowing teams out of the water.

The Boys from the City of Brotherly Love opened the season 9 and 2 at home and all 9 of those wins have come by double digits. This will only help Coach Doug Collins get experience into his bench players while at the same time saving his starters from getting overly fatigued. This will be important down the road if they can keep it up.

The Houston Rockets are in the top ten in the league in turnovers and not only are they thieves but they capitalize when they get rolling. The Washington Wizards were playing them close in a game last week but before you knew it, the Rockets had turned 24 Wizards turnovers into 41 points.

Last year, the Dallas Mavericks won the championship and one reason was their good defense anchored by Tyson Chandler. With Chandler gone to New York, the logical thing was for them to struggle on the defensive end but not so fast Mr. Texas.

After 20 games, Dallas finds itself tied with San Antonio in the Southwest Division but they also were one of only 4 teams in the league holding clubs to under 90 points a game, according to the betting sites.

Opposite of the Knicks, if Dallas keeps this up, they will have a solid shot to repeat as champs.
