Winning NBA Expert Betting Predictions: Miami Heat at Charlotte Hornets.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes. NBA Playoff Premium 500-star Picks are winning at a 69.7% rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2016. The (50-34) and third seed Miami Heat of the Eastern Conference Southeast Division will travel to the largest city in the “TAR HEEL STATE” for game-three of the quarterfinal NBA Playoff series.

The game is on Saturday, April 23, 2016. The teams will play at the Time Warner Cable Arena in downtown Charlotte, North Carolina. The best Sports Handicapper believes the Miami Heat are playing at a pace that could take them to the Conference Finals. The Charlotte Hornets must bounce back from a two-game deficit. The Opening Betting line has Miami as a two-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 200′ for Saturday’s game.

The Miami Heat own a two-game lead in the best of seven series against their divisional rivals. Both contests have Miami winning by double digits. President and General Manager Pat Riley is showing why he is among the best in the Association. The organization trusts Riley to pull the string on a deal whenever it helps the franchise. Most recently the acquisition of Joe Johnson is working to the team’s advantage. The former Brooklyn Nets star scored eight points in the game two victory. The emergence of Luol Deng in the postseason is a bonus. Deng is a matchup nightmare for opponents with his long frame and athleticism. The real score for the organization is Center Hassan Whiteside. The Charlotte native bounced around from D-League to Star Status. Whiteside must continue to dominate in the post; he is the key to Miami long term success. Starting Point Guard, Goran Dragic is controlling the pace of the game and is doing a masterful job. All-Star DeWayne Wade is having fun after the departure of LeBron James.

The 2016 Charlotte Hornets finished third in the Southeast Division, behind Miami and Atlanta. All three are in the postseason. The Hornets are looking to end a playoff losing drought. Twelve in a row is the number, and Saturday could see the team winning its first postseason contest since 2002. Head Coach Steve Clifford is optimistic despite being in the hole. Charlotte has more than enough offense to even the series. Many experts thought the series would be more of a defensive battle, but Miami is pushing the ball at a fast tempo. The Hornets have their struggles in the first half of both contests. Halftime adjustments are working, but the team is too far in the hole by the start of the third quarter. Point Guard Kimba Walker is holding up and led the team with twenty-nine points in game two. It’s time for Cody Zeller and Marvin Williams to step up their play; both are capable at both ends of the floor.

Miami is 3-1 Against The Spread the last four between the teams.

The Betting Odds Over The Total are 2-0 in the first two game of the first round series.

2016 NBA Playoff Point Spread Picks: Cleveland Cavaliers at Detroit Pistons.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes. NBA Playoff Premium 500-star Predictions are winning at a 69.7% rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2016.The (59-25) and top seed Cleveland Cavaliers of the Eastern Conference Central Division will be in the “MOTOR CITY” for game three of their opening round NBA Playoff series. Cleveland will play the (44-40) and eight seed Detroit Pistons also of the Eastern Conference Central in 2016 NBA Playoff action. Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST on the ESPN Television Network. The game is on Friday, April 22, 2016. The teams will play at The Palace of Auburn Hills in suburban Detroit, Michigan. The best Sports Handicapper believes the Detroit Pistons are playing the Cleveland Cavaliers as tough as the can. Detroit has young talent and is a year away from being a threat. The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking vulnerable against a tough a feisty Detroit basketball team. The Opening Betting line has Cleveland as a four and a half-point Road Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 200′ for Friday’s game.

The 2016 Cleveland Cavaliers are again the favorites to represent the East in the NBA Finals. Cleveland played down to Detroit in the first six halves of their first round matchup. The second half of game two is when the Cavaliers started to figure out the Pistons. Cleveland outscored the young Pistons 52-37 in the second half of game two. Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue expects his team to close out the “LOUD MOUTH” want to be bad boys. The Cavaliers have been hearing all kinds of talking from the Pistons, but they can’t seem to close out games in the fourth quarter. Cleveland is a veteran group who will continue to expose their young but talented first-round opposition. The series moves to the Wolverine State and fans will be out in force rooting against the team from the “BUCKEYE STATE”. You can call the Cavaliers vs. Pistons series OHIO STATE/MICHIGAN NBA Style. The key to a Cleveland victory is to play with composure and keep making three-point shots.

The Detroit Pistons have one of the best tacticians in the league. President and Head Coach Stan Van Gundy is playing with house money this season. Many experts around the league thought the Pistons were a year away from making the postseason. Van Gundy expects his team to play and carry themselves like professionals. Detroit has plenty of talent, especially in the post with All-Star Andre Drummond, who is a mid-range jump shot away from being a superstar. Van Gundy is also stressing ball control; turnovers are killing the young team. Starting Point Guard Reggie Jackson can compete with Kyrie Irving. Tobias Harris, acquired in a trade late in the season has postseason experience. The former Milwaukee and Orlando forward must keep the youngsters in focus. The Pistons must also get the ball to open shooters. Jackson has the ball in his hands too much of the times. The key to a Detroit victory in game three is to play tighter defense.

Detroit is 3-1 Against The Spread the last four between the teams.

The Betting Odds Over The Total are 5-2 the last seven times the team has met.
