NBA Basketball Online Betting - Trade Winners and Losers

Posted by Brian Mulligan on 2/10/2014 5:19:35 AM

There were no monster, blockbuster trades that went down at the deadline of the National Basketball Association trade destination but there were a couple that online sports betting players should pay attention to because they may affect spread records the rest of the way.

After all the drama, Dwight Howard decided to stay in Orlando and the Los Angeles Lakers wisely decided to hold on to 2-time champion Pau Gasol. That was definitely the right move.

The Lakers had to let go their heart and soul in Derek Fisher but they got a real nice player in Ramon Sessions. He was backing up sensational rookie Kyrie Irving in Cleveland and averaged nearly 11 points and 5 assists a game in just 24 minutes.

They also got an improving youngster in Jordan Hill, who will fight with Troy Murphy and Josh McRoberts for playing time.

With the screws being tightened now by Coach Mike Brown, expect the Lakers to start to focus and dominate teams the way they should with their superior inside players.

The Indiana Pacers do it by committee and really don’t have a superstar but they have seven guys that share the ball, play defense, know how to bang and compete and they just got a potential microwave from the Toronto Raptors in Leandro Barbosa.

When he played in Phoenix, Barbosa was known as the ‘Brazilian Blur’ and although he can get up and down mentally, there are few players in the game that are quicker and can change the complexion of games in a hurry.

Indy is chasing only Chicago in the Central Division and expect them to play much better covering online sportsbook lines down the stretch on the road with the fireplug Barbosa running the floor.

Another winner in the Trade Game were the San Antonio Spurs. The Richard Jefferson experiment never worked for them but they picked up a guy that was there when the Spurs won the 2003 championship in Stephen Jackson and he has several close friends on the team.

By picking up Jackson, they got a guy that has averaged 16 points a game for his career. He can get to the hoop and has proven he can hit some big shots. He also will fit in quickly with the Spurs.

Jackson also is the type of player that doesn’t turn his cheek if he’s punched and that’s a good thing when it’s a win or go home betting websites situation.

Jackson could start right away but he also may fill that sixth man role once Manu Ginobili is 100%.

San Antonio, already a good cover team as they only failed to cover the spread 16 times in 42 starts, only figure to get better.

Among the losers on Trade Day are Portland, who lost Marcus Camby and Gerald Wallace, Minnesota, who could not get another team interested in taking Michael Beasley and Golden Gate, who let go the best guy on their team in Monta Ellis and got Andrew Bogut, an injury prone guy that will likely be out for the rest of the season.
