The Hawks fell behind early in game one of the series Monday Night. The Hawks tied the game in the fourth quarter before losing 104-93. Atlanta Point Guard Jeff Teague got benched for backup Dennis Schroder down the stretch. The German native scored a playoff career high 27-points in the loss. Schroder was ineffective late in the fourth quarter. Teague should have been in the game. Sharp Shooter Kyle Korver attempted only one three points shot in thirty-seven minutes of action. Head Coach Mike Budenholzer was impressed with the Hawks overall play, except the last three minutes of the game. The key to an Atlanta victory is game two is to play better down the stretch. The Atlanta Hawks are listed at 15/1 to win the Eastern Conference title.

Clearly the Cavaliers have the Hawks number. 2016 is the year LeBron James may be able to deliver on his promise to the City of Cleveland. The “MEGA STAR” wants an NBA World Championship trophy in the team’s facility. The unsung hero in game one is J.R. Smith, who was on Kyle Korver like a blanket.

Cleveland head coach Tyronn Lue expects the same effort Wednesday Night, taking a 2-0 lead back to Atlanta. Cleveland outscored Atlanta 17-5 down the stretch in game one. James was his usual self-distributing the ball in clutch situations as well as going strong to the basket. Forward Kevin Love is alway looking for his shot and has the “GREEN LIGHT” from any spot on the floor. The key to a Cleveland win is to keep playing tight defense.

Winning NBA Playoff Betting Predictions For Tonight: Portland Trailblazers at Los Angeles Clippers.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Point Spread news and notes. NBA Playoff Premium 500-star Picks are winning at a 68.2% rate and will continue through the NBA Finals in June of 2016.

The game is on Wednesday, April 27, 2016. The teams will play at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles, California. The best Sports Handicapper believes the Portland Trailblazers are right back in the series after winning two in the “NORTHWEST.” The Los Angeles Clippers have their backs against the wall. To make matters worse, star point guard Chris Paul is out with a hand fracture. The Opening Betting line has Portland as a two-point Road Underdog Against The Spread. The Betting Odds Total is 198 for Wednesday’s game. Read more on our Boston Celtics at Atlanta Hawks game-five quarterfinals playoff matchup.

The Portland Trailblazers are playing beyond expectations in the playoffs. The organization lost star power in free agency and still made the postseason in the competitive West. The 2015 roster makeup of LaMarcus Aldridge, Robin Lopez, Nicolas Batum, Wesley Matthews and Arron Afflalo are playing elsewhere. NBA Experts thought the Trailblazers were headed for the draft lottery. Instead the emergence of guard C.J. McCollum Portland on the verge of beating the talented Los Angeles Clippers in the quarterfinals. Head Coach Terry Stotts should have been the 2016 NBA Coach of the Year with the masterful job he is doing. Fans of the Trailblazers are excited, especially facing the Clippers without Chris Paul. The team held the explosive Clippers offense under ninety points in the two games played at the Rose Garden in Portland. The key to a Trailblazers victory in game five is tight defense.

The 2016 Los Angeles Clippers have had a season of ups and downs. Los Angeles was without All-Star Forward Blake Griffin for most of the regular season. Griffin is questionable for game five after a minor setback with the same injury that kept him out half of the season. Head Coach Doc Rivers is also looking for someone to step up for the injured Chris Paul. The Wake Forest University product is one of the best leaders in the National Basketball Association.Veteran Jamaal Crawford has the talent on the floor but does he have the intangibles? Sharpshooter J.J. Redick is also dealing with a nagging heel injury. Austin Rivers has had his struggles and must now earn his keep filling in for Chris Paul. “LOB CITY” is the term used to describe the fast break Los Angeles Clippers but advancing in now up in the air. The key to A Los Angeles Clippers win is to play with enthusiasm and grind it out without Chris Paul.

Portland is only 2-5 ATS their last seven dating back to the regular season.

The Betting Odds Under The Total are 5-0 in the last five between the teams.

Free Winning NBA Betting Predictions: Los Angeles Clippers at Milwaukee Bucks.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball Betting news and notes. NBA Premium Picks have been winning at an 80.3% rate and will continue through the 2016 NBA Finals in 2016. The (12-9) Los Angeles Clippers of the NBA Western Conference Pacific Division will be in “THE BADGER STATE” for an out of Conference matchup. The Clippers will play the (9-13) Milwaukee Bucks of the Eastern Conference Central in 2015 NBA action. The game is at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Tip-Off time is at 8:00 PM EST. The game is on Wednesday, December, 9th 2015. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Los Angeles Clippers have one of the best coaches in the league. The Clippers are better than they have been playing to start the 2015-season. The Milwaukee Bucks have some excellent young talent, but it’s going to take a few more seasons of experience to become relevant. The Opening betting line has the Clippers as a five and a half-point Road Favorite Against The Spread. The Betting Odds total is 201-points for Wednesday’s game.

The 2015-16 Los Angeles Clippers have won five of their last six, their latest a 110-106 victory at Minnesota. The Clippers are second in the Pacific Division, nine and a half games behind first place Golden State. Expectations are still high for the Clippers. Head Coach Glenn “Doc” Rivers will have the team ready to make a run at Golden State and San Antonio in the Western Conference. The high-powered Clippers offense ranks seventh in the NBA, averaging 103.1 points per contest. Defensively the Clippers allow the opposition 102.0 ppg. All-Star point guard Chris Paul is the team leader in assists and steals. Power Forward Blake Griffin leads the Clippers in scoring with a little over twenty-four points per game. Center DeAndre Jordan grabs a team-best 13 rebounds each game and two and a half shot blocks. Reserve guard Jamal Crawford is still performing at a high rate and is third on the team scoring the basketball. The key to a Clippers win is to practice patience against a defensive oriented Milwaukee team and redefine “LOB CITY”.

The Milwaukee Bucks have won their last two basketball games both straight up and Against The Point Spread. Last season first round draft choice and number two overall pick Jabari Parker is healthy again. Milwaukee ranked 29th out of thirty teams in the league scoring the basketball. Parker is fifth on the team in scoring with a little over 10-points per game. Forward Giannis Antetokounmpo is the leader in scoring with sixteen ppg. The Bucks added former Pistons star Greg Monroe in the offseason to shore op the post. Point Guard Michael Carter-Williams leads the Bucks with a little over five assists per contest. Lanky Jon Henson is a shot blocking machine. Head Coach Jason Kidd is looking for the team that finished strongly last season to show up. Milwaukee is currently in the basement of the Central Division, but they will climb out as the season goes along. The key to a Milwaukee victory Wednesday is to make open shots and protect the rim.

The Los Angeles Clippers are 1-5-1 Against The Spread their last 7 games following a straight up win.

Milwaukee is 5-1 ATS their last six in the “BEER CAPITAL”.

NCAA Football Predictions: Week 8 Recap.

Written and authored by College Football Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Football news and notes. NCAA Football Premium Picks have been winning at a 78.7% rate and will continue through the 2016 BCS Title game in January 2016.

After the firing of former head coach Steve Sarkisian the USC Trojans finally played up to their potential. Many NCAA Football Betting Experts go a surprise when the Trojans were a six-point Home Favorite Against The Spread vs. The top ten Utah Utes. Vegas knew something as UCS blasted Utah 42-24 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The game wasn’t even that close as USC dominated from start to finish with Clay Helton as the interim head coach. Helton is now in the discussion to be the full-time coach and get the “MEN OF TROY” back into prominence. The USC Trojans are going to be tough to beat from here on out.

The Clemson Tigers remained unbeaten and a 58-0 road win at Miami cost Hurricanes head coach Al golden his job in Coral Gables, Florida. The worst loss in Hurricane Football history. It was first reported that Golden was safe until the end of the season. However after listening to fans, booster and alumni, athletic director Blake James had no other choice. Miami looked lethargic in the loss with missed assignments, a lack of hustle and they just didn’t care. Too bad it falls on Golden and his staff. Tight Ends Coach Larry Scott will be in charge for the remainder of the season. Former Hurricanes took to twitter, some in support of Golden and others were angry that the program had hit rock bottom. Miami 4-3 and in great shape to get a bowl bid, but they must bring energy to every game going forward. Buth Davis is said to be the leading candidate to take over the program. Don’t forget former Rutgers and Tampa Bay coach Greg Schiano has just as much of a connection.

This Sports Handicapper believes current Duke coach David Cutcliffe is the best choice due to his ability to be open-minded. Cutcliffe is an offensive genius and is a person of integrity. The Baylor Bears remained unbeaten but lost starting quarterback Seth Russell with a broken bone in his neck. There is no timetable for his return or if he will be out for the remainder of the season. LSU took care of high scoring Western Kentucky in a Saturday contest that drew plenty of interest from the College Football betting community. The Iowa Hawkeyes remained unbeaten and are the favorites to win the West Division of the Big Ten Conference. The Hawkeyes can run the football and play defense which is a scary proposition for any opponent. Michigan State of the Big-Ten also remained unbeaten with a close call against Indiana. Week nine of the 2015 College Football season will provide even more upsets.

2015-16 NBA Predictions: Bulls Star Point Guard Suffers Another Injury The First Day of Training Camp.

Written and authored by National Basketball Expert Analyst Bobby Wallace. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes. Fans in the Windy City are growing leery of hometown star Derrick Rose. Injuries are going to happen, and Rose has certainly had his share o them in his short NBA career. The former Simeon high school and Memphis University alumni fractured the left orbital near his left eye socket Tuesday. Team official rushed the point guard to a local hospital where surgery was performed. New Chicago Bull head coach and former player Fred Hoiberg did not put a timetable on his return. The 2011 NBA most valuable player missed the entire 2012-13 season with a knee injury and participated in only ten NBA regular season games two years ago after tearing the meniscus in his right knee.

It is not the injury that worries hardcore fans in basketball-crazed Chicago. Rose put his foot in his mouth before training camp began, talking about hos contract extension years down the road. The comments rubbed Chicagoans the wrong way. Rose contract is not up until 2017, so why is the All-Star complaining about money down the road? Most professional athletes want to get as much money as they can; they are only human. This summer the Detroit Pistons resigned point guard Reggie Jackson to an $80 million extension. Jackson has only started in a season in the league, and that was after being traded to Detroit from Oklahoma City. Derrick Rose has been a fan favorite in his hometown since entering the National Basketball Association. Even the most loyal Rose supporters are backing away. Center Joakim Noah and Jimmy Butler have taken over as fan favorites. Rose comes across as a quiet and humble young man, which he probably is. In the blue collar “NORTH SHORE”. Comments concerning finances to a man make nearly $25 million per year with endorsements are not appreciated by the most loyal fans.

Rose should have kept the status of finances out of the conversation. First of all, he hasn’t earned the right to dictate terms to the franchise. The “SOUTH SIDER” has been injured the majority of his career and fans believe he gave up in the 2015 Eastern Conference Finals. Chicago got eliminated by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Cleveland backup point guard Matthew Dellavedova not only out hustled Rose but performed better than the entitled star. Bulls fans still can’t get that out of their minds. Rose and his camp must do some damage control. Trust me, if management got rid of the “GREAT” Michael Jordan and Phil Jackson they will have no problem asking Rose to find work elsewhere.

Winning College Football Predictions: Florida State Seminoles at Boston College Eagles.

Written and authored by Football Expert Analyst Greg Nelson. Charliessports.com produces it for NCAA Football Betting news and notes.

The (2-0) and 9th-ranked Florida State Seminoles of the ACC Atlantic Division will travel to the “BAY STATE” for a Conference matchup. Florida State will play the (2-0) Boston College Eagles also of the ACC Atlantic Division in 2015 College Football action. The game will be at Alumni Stadium on campus in the Boston suburb of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. Kickoff time is at 8:00 PM EST on the ESPN Television Network. Friday, September 18th, 2015. The Best Sports Handicapper believes the Florida State Seminole are still the most talented team in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The “NOLES” have rolled over their first two opponents. The Boston College Eagles have opened the 2015 season with two wins against FCS opponents. Boston College usually plays Florida State tough especially at home. The opening betting line has Florida State as an eight and a half-point Road Favorite Against The Spread. The betting odds total is 47′-points for Friday’s game. Read more on our Clemson Tigers at Louisville Cardinals week-three write-up.

The 2015 Florida State Seminoles have one of the best running backs in College Football with sophomore Dalvin Cook. Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher must get his team to understand that they will be in for a fight. Florida State beat Boston College 20-17 in Tallahassee, Florida last season, but it took a 66-yards drive which led to a game-winning field goal. Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson is now running the Florida State offense had has been impressive out of the gate. Golson threw for 163 yards with a touchdown in the 34-14 home victory against South Florida last Saturday. Cook is off to a great start with 422 rushing yards and five touchdowns in the first two games of the season. The Seminoles have one of the more experienced offensive lines in the ACC and they will be ready for a gritty Boston College defense. The FSU coaching staff knows they are inexperienced at the wideout position and a compensating by running the football. The Florida State defense has a ball-hawking secondary which features the best player in the ACC. FSU safety Jalen Ramsey is dominant in the passing game and just as good against the run. Boston College must recognize where he lines up on every play. Florida State better not take the Eagles lightly, especially on the road.

The Boston College Eagles have confidence coming into the ESPN showcase football game for Friday Night. Boston College beat Howard 76-0 and Maine 24-3 in the opener. Friday Night’s contest makes it three in a row at Alumni Stadium this season. The implications are huge and students have already started to tailgate. The atmosphere is going to be electric and head coach Steve Addazio will find out what his team is all about. Clearly, Boston College comes in as a lesser talented team. Addazio doesn’t mind it at all, in fact, the hard-nosed coach feeds off of hard-nosed football players. Junior quarterback Darius Wade gets his first real test of the 2015 football season. Addazio is fine with attacking the Florida State defense downhill and he has plenty of running backs to keep fresh legs on the field. The Boston College defense lacks speed but makes it up with aggressiveness. Defensive Tackle Connor Wujciak must get penetration against a stout FSU o-line. The key to a Boston College win is for the defense to contain Cook on and the running game.

The Betting Odds over the total are 4-1 the last five between the team in Chestnut Hill.

Boston College is 5-2 ATS the last seven meetings between the ACC foes.
