Washington Wizards head coach Scott Brooks has taken his fair share of criticism for the poor start to the 2018 season. This Sports Handicapper along with many other NBA experts believes owner Ted Leonsis should field offers for some of his overpriced players.

Head Coach Scott Brooks could be the first casualty, but his salary is guaranteed. All-Star point guard John Wall has been accused of being out of shape, and his recent fallout with Brooks has fans questioning his dedication. Management made a mistake in signing Otto Porter to a long-term contract which pay’s over $26 million this season which doesn’t equate to his (10.6) ppg scoring average.

The Wizards average (111.8) ppg as a team which is tied for 11th with Oklahoma City while the shoot (45.2%) from the field which ranks 18th in the NBA. All-Star guards Bradley Beal along with John Wall score over twenty-point per contest, however, it’s been rumored that both could be trade bait. The Wizards allow opponents (116.9) ppg which is the 28th lea

gue-wide with their (41.2) rebounds per game, 27th in the NBA. The opposition shoots (47.35) against the Wizards defense which is 25th in the league.

It’s clear Washington is lethargic defending the opposition and if they want one more run at an Eastern Conference title they had better begin Friday.

Bovada.Lv list the Washington Wizards win total at 44′ games for 2018-19.

The Toronto Raptors own the best record in the Eastern Conference under the leadership of first-year head coach Nick Nurse who served as an assistant under Dwane Casey. Fans in the province of Ontario are excited to have Kawhi Leonard (24.2) ppg in a Raptors uniform. However, the question is will he sign a long-term contract in Toronto or take his talent to his hometown of Los Angeles. San Antonio refused to trade him to another Western Conference team, so they took DeMar DeRozan for Leonard.

Nurse was in charge of offense with Casey, and it shows as the Raptors averages (115.9) ppg which is 5th in the NBA. The Raptors also shoot (48.6) from the field, good enough for third in Basketball. They’re not as efficient beyond the arc, shooting (33.8%) on three-point shooting which ranks 24th in the Association.

Leonard also leads Toronto with (8.2) rebounds per contest and the Raptors are 8th league-wide averaging (47.1) boards per game with Serge Ibaka second. Toronto allows opponents (107.5) ppg which is seventh in the league while the (44.4%) they allow from the field is tied for 6th with Portland.

Toronto has bought into the system, but they know Washington is dangerous. A key is to pressure the Wizards backcourt of Wall and Beal.

Bovada.Lv list the Toronto Raptors win total at 55′ games for 2018-19.

Free Winning NBA Point Spread Picks, News, Notes, and Odds For Saturday, February 10, 2018: New Orleans Pelicans at Brooklyn Nets.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes.

Basketball Daily ATS Predictions are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

The (28-25) New Orleans Pelicans of the Western Conference Southwest division are in the most extensive borough of the “BIG APPLE” for an out of conference matchup.

New Orleans play’s the (19-37) Brooklyn Nets of the Eastern Conference Atlantic. Tip-off is 6:00 PM EST.

The game is on Saturday, February 10, 2018. The teams will play at Barclays Center where Flatbush meets Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, New York.

The Local Television networks will broadcast the game. The New Orleans Pelicans topsy turvy season continues, and head coach Alvin Gentry is getting exposed.

It’s time for the front office to make a coaching change. Brooklyn is among the worst teams in the NBA landscape, and fans understand it’s going to take time, they are willing to wait a few years for the franchise to turn the corner.

The opening betting line has Brooklyn as a one and a half point home underdog against the spread. The betting odds total is 220 points for Saturday’s game.

 

The 2018 New Orleans Pelicans have lost four of their last five both straight up and to the Las Vegas number.

New Orleans is third in the Southwest, twelve games behind first-place Houston. The team suffered a setback when multi-talented Center DeMarcus Cousins out for the season with an Achilles injury.

On a positive note, the Pelicans have a positive record on the road.

The high scoring New Orleans offense ranks fourth in the NBA, averaging a little over one hundred and team points per game.

However, defensively they allow opponents 111.1 ppg. All-Star and former number one overall draft pick Anthony Davis leads the team in scoring; he must also pick up the point production with the loss of Cousins.

Point Guard Jrue Holiday is underrated, and the team recently acquired sharpshooter Nikola Mirotic form the Chicago Bulls.

New Orleans play in Philadelphia on Friday, so they must allow starters to get plenty of rest.

Bovada.Lv has the New Orleans Pelicans win total at thirty-nine and a half games for the 2018 NBA season.

 

The Brooklyn Nets lost to New Orleans back in December of this year and are looking for revenge.

Brooklyn is 2-8 their last ten overall but is 5-5 Against the Point Spread in the span.

The Nets are in the cellar of the Atlantic division and have the third worst record in the Eastern Conference. Brooklyn also has a losing record in front of the home crowd as well as on the road.

General Manager Seas Marks is going to stick with head coach Kenny Atkinson for at least the remainder of the 2018 season. Atkinson took over at the fifty game mark in the 2017 season.

The Nets have some talent on offense, but give up too many points to the opposition.

Multi-talented guard D’Angelo Russell is back in the lineup after missing most of the first half of the season and will produce a few more victories.

A key to a Brooklyn victory is to take advantage of the Pelicans playing back to back games.

Bovada.Lv lists the Brooklyn Nets win total at 28′ games for the 2018 NBA season.

2018 NBA Expert ATS Predictions, News, Notes, and Odds: How Blake Griffin trade impacts Pistons, and Eastern Conference.

Written and authored National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Al Presto. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting purposes.

Basketball Expert Daily Picks are the best in the business and again will win again at an unbelievable rate through the NBA Finals in June of 2018.

Blake Griffin is now a member of the Detroit Pistons after getting traded to the “MOTOR CITY” from the Los Angeles Clippers.

Los Angeles receives Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, and Boban Marjanovic. Head Coach, and President Stan Van Gundy to reporters he’s serious about bringing an NBA title back to Detroit.

The move certainly makes sense for the Pistons who now have Griffin and Andre Drummond as the cornerstones of the franchise.

Drummond has unreal defensive skills but is a liability on offense. Griffin, on the other hand, can post up or consistently hit the mid-range jump shot.

Detroit will host the Cleveland Cavaliers on the day of the trade and of course LeBron James had to put his two cents in on the deal, which should fall on deaf ears.

 

James is known to be outspoken but should just keep basketball on his mind. Don’t forget his mouth is the reason the most “CRAFTY” point guard in the history of the franchise is now wearing Boston Celtics colors.

Who cares how a multi Billionaire feels about a trade, players perform on the court and management makes decisions that are best for the team.

Right or Wrong owners work hard to keep fans interested and seats filled so players can make huge salaries.

Again it’s the era of sports, everyone is expendable, even LeBron James. Blake Griffin will be just fine; he just signed a one-hundred-and seventy-one million dollar contract over five years, nearly thirty-five million per season.

Most of us would play in Siberia for that kind of money, who cares if fans believe players are spoiled if they want a trade or unloyal if they sign with another team.

LeBron, just worry about playing basketball.

Back to the trade, the Pistons are now a contender, and Van Gundy will get the best out of his frontcourt.

Point Guard Reggie Jackson is a budding star and is easily one of the top six at his position in the Eastern Conference.

Gone is forty points per game with Harris, Bradley, and Marjanovic but Van Gundy now has two dominant forces in the post.

Most fans like the Golden State Warriors, and Houston Rockets high powered offenses who will launch three points shots on a consistent basis.

What they don’t understand is both of these teams concentrate on defense more than ever in the 2017-18 season.

Stan Van Gundy will now play with a slow pace allowing both Griffin, and Drummond touches each time down the court.

The move forces opponents to play defense for the entire twenty-four-second shot clock.

Detroit will stay under the betting odds total for the majority of the rest of the regular season.

2016 March Madness Sweet 16 East and Midwest Preview: Keys point getting to the Elite 8.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball March Madness Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.NCAA Basketball 500-star Premium Picks are winning at a 72.1% rate and will continue into the 2016 March Madness Finals in April. The 2016 March Madness Elite Eight in the East looks more like a Midwest Region. Indiana, Wisconsin and Notre Dame playing are playing in the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE”. No doubt the Notre Dame Fighting Irish will have plenty of fans in the stands. Notre Dame has a large alumni base in Southeastern Pennsylvania, and the Wells Fargo Center will be a sea of Green and Gold. Perhaps the best team among the four is the North Carolina Tar Heels who’s fans will also be in the stands. The two Big Ten teams are going to be underdogs with Wisconsin getting a point. The Indiana Hoosiers are five and a half point “DOGS. The Midwest Region is a friendly location for the Iowa State Cyclones. Cyclones fans get a break with the three-hour drive from Ames to the Windy City. Former Cyclones Head Coach Fred Hoiberg is the leader of the Chicago Bulls.

The 2016 East Region has two of the most decorated basketball institutes in the history of the NCAA. Indiana and North Carolina have longstanding traditions not only in the Tournament but College Basketball. The two teams met at the old Spectrum in the 1981 NCAA title game with Indiana getting the victory. The game was almost called off due to the assassination attempt on then-President Ronald Reagan. North Carolina has been regulars in the Sweet Sixteen over the past decade. Indiana makes their third appearance in the previous five years. The Bobby Knight and Dean Smith eras are over, it now Roy Wiliams and Tom Crean on the benches. The second game in the ACC vs. Big Ten matchup March style will have the Notre Dame Fighting Irish facing Wisconsin. The Irish took care of Michigan at the Barclay’s Center in Brooklyn, New York. Wisconsin spoiled Xavier’s hope, with two last minute Bronson Koenig three-points shots, the last a game-winner from the corner. Will it be an All-ACC or All-Big Ten finals in the East. Indiana will push the pace against North Carolina. Notre Dame and Wisconsin will play at a slower pace.

The top seed Virginia Cavaliers and fourth seed Iowa State Cyclones are two team who play entirely different styles. Virginia wants the game played in the low sixties or high fifty’s. Iowa State wants to push the basketball at a fast pace. Whatever team imposes their will is going to advance. Virginia will milk the shot clock and look for a good shot. Iowa State will push a create havoc at both ends of the floor. Virginia and Iowa State have two of the top Seniors in all of College Basketball. Malcolm Brogdon of Virginia and Georges Niang are both going to be solid NBA players. First things first, win and advance. Two double-digit seeds will play in the nightcap. 11th seed Gonzaga will take on number 10 Syracuse. The ACC also puts two teams in the Midwest Region. These two teams play the same style, and it will be a grind it out kind of basketball contest. The “ZAGS” have an intimidator in the middle; Domantas Sabonis dominated their first two opponents.

Free Winning Basketball Picks For Tonight: Syracuse Orange at Louisville Cardinals.

Written and authored by NCAA Basketball Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes. College Basketball Premium Picks have been winning at a 70.8% rate and will continue through the 2016 NCAA March Madness Finals in April of 2016. The (18-8) Syracuse Orange of the Atlantic Coast Conference will make the trip to the “BLUEGRASS STATE” for a Conference matchup. Syracuse plays the (19-6) Louisville Cardinals also of the ACC in 2016 Basketball action. The teams will play at KFC Yum! Center in downtown Louisville, Kentucky. Tip-Off time is at 7:00 PM EST on the ESPN Television Network. The game is on Wednesday, February 17th, 2016. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Syracuse basketball program is in a rebuilding process. Louisville must play the rest of the regular season with a passion. The Cardinals are not eligible for the NCAA Tournament due to self-imposed sanctions. The Opening Betting Line has Syracuse as a seven-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is not available for Wednesday’s game.

The Syracuse Orange basketball team is soaring at the right time. Syracuse is on a five-game win streak and is 3-2 ATS in the span. The Orange is fifth in the Atlantic Coast Conference, three games behind first-place North Carolina. Syracuse last win, a 75-61 road victory over Boston College on Valentines day. The Orange, at 8-5, is among seven teams playing for a double bye in the ACC Tournament. However, long-time Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim prefers to play instead of sitting his team with a bye. After the recent winning streak, some voters put the Orange back into the top twenty-five in various polls. Senior Forward Michael Gbinije is the team’s leader scoring the basketball with a 17.9 ppg average. Tyler Roberson pulls down nearly nine rebounds per contest which leads the team. Deleware native Trevor Cooney is the team’s most efficient player and as he goes so will Syracuse.

The 2016 Louisville Cardinals are glad to return to the friendly confines of the YUM! KFC Center. Louisville lost road games to Duke and Notre Dame back to back and now hopes to turn it around. The Cardinals won’t be playing in the postseason, allegations facing head coach Rick Pitino are still swirling. The sanctions are dividing the locker room and could be wearing out his team emotionally. The Cardinals are right above Syracuse in the standing and only can play the role of spoilers. Louisville is 4-1 straight up their last five at home. Senior Guard Damion Lee is the team’s leading scorer and must keep the troops together in these tough times. Cleveland State transfer Trey Lewis is a player who is devastated by not being able to compete in the Tournament but will give 100% every night. Sophomore Center Chinanu Onuaku is tops on the team rebounding the basketball.

Syracuse is 7-2 Against The Spread their last nine vs. The ACC.

The Betting Odds Under The Total are 21-8-2 Louisville last thirty-one at home.
