Free 2018 NBA Expert Betting Picks, News, and Odds: Portland Trailblazer’s at Utah Jazz.

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

NBA 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 (32-26) Portland Trailblazers of the Western Conference Northwest division are in the “BEEHIVE STATE” for a divisional matchup.

Portland takes on the (30-28) Utah Jazz also of the Western Conference Northwest. Tip-off is 9:05 PM EST. The game is on Friday, February 23, 2018.

The teams will play at the Vivint Smart Home Arena in scenic Salt Lake City, Utah. The Local Television network will broadcast the game.

The Portland Trailblazer franchise is one of the most consistent in the NBA landscape but when will they become true playoff competitors in the Western Conference?

Utah is playing much better than experts thought after the defection of Gordon Hayward to Baston is the offseason.

Rookie Donovan Mitchell is turning heads around the league and won the “SLAM DUNK” contest at All-Star weekend.

The Opening Betting line has the Portland Trailblazers as a four-point road underdog against the spread. The Betting Odds Total is 206 and a half points for Friday’s contest.

 

The 2018 Portland Trailblazer’s are forth in the tight Northwest division, two and a half games behind first-place Minnesota.

Portland has lost both games to Utah this season both straight up and against the point spread.

Head Coach Terry Stotts is in his sixth season on the bench in “RIP CITY” and is doing an adequate job. However, the franchise understands point guard Damian Lillard wants a chance to win an NBA title. The Oakland, California native is the team’s best player and leading scorer.

Backcourt mate C.J. McCollum is second with a little over twenty-one points per game. The dynamic duo is one of the best young tandems of guards in the league.

Offensively the Trailblazers are a middle of the pack team, and they could be more aggressive on defense which Stotts preaches daily.

Portland has lost both games to Utah this season and needs a dominating performance again from Lillard and McCollum to get a victory.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2017-18 Portland Trailblazer’s at +1,800 to win the Northwest Division Title.

 

The Utah Jazz is last in the Northwest, just four and a half games out of first place. Utah has a losing record against division opponents.

However, they could be playing in the most competitive divisions in the NBA. Minnesota, Oklahoma City, and Denver are in the top three slots.

Utah is one of the hottest teams in the “ASSOCIATION” with a ten game winning streak and are 7-3 ATS in the span.

Head Coach Quin Snyder and Executive Dennis Lindsey should be in consideration for coach and general manager of the year.

As usual, the Utah Jazz is at the top of the league in points allowed by the opposition per game; they rank fourth.

Rookie Guard Donovan Mitchell is the team’s best player. Power Forward Derrick Favors is still in a Jazz uniform after many experts thought he would get traded before the deadline.

The key to a Jazz win is to perform well at what they do best, and that plays tight defense.

Bovada.Lv has the Utah Jazz at 8,000 to win 2017-18 Western Conference Championship.

The Best NBA ATS Picks, News, and Odds For Wednesday, February 7, 2018: Miami Heat at Toronto Raptors.

Written and authored by National Basketball Association Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Basketball news and notes.

Basketball Expert 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 (30-26) Miami Heat of the Eastern Conference Southeast division is “NORTH OF THE BORDER” for a conference matchup. Miami takes on the (39-16) Toronto Raptors of the Eastern Conference Atlantic.

Tip-off is 7:00 PM EST. The game is on Tuesday, February 13, 2018. The teams will play at Air Canada Centre in Maple Leaf Square in frigid Toronto, Ontario.

Local Television networks will broadcast the game.

The Miami Heat brought local hero Dwyane Wade back at the trade deadline, and fans in South Florida are ecstatic. Can the Heat become relevant in the East? Probably not.

Toronto is one of the top three teams in the Eastern Conference, but they can’t seem to take the next step. What is it going to take for the Raptors to get over the hump?

The Opening Betting line has the Toronto Raptors as an eight-point home favorite against the spread. The Betting Odds Total is 207 And A Half Points for Tuesday’s contest.

 

The Miami Heat beat Toronto once this season at the Air Canada Centre in a close contest in which point guard Goran Dragic and DeMar DeRozan of Toronto got into a shoving match at the final buzzer.

Miami broke of the five-game losing streak against Milwaukee last Friday in the return of Dwyane Wade.

General Manager Pat Riley called the return of the franchises most recognizable star unbelievable.

How much the team will improve is still the question, and this sports handicapper doesn’t think it will help a bit. The thirty-six-year-old future hall of fame was brought back for the curtain call of his career.

The Miami Heat are second in the Southeast division and should get a postseason berth, but they will get outed in the first round.

Miami ranks third in the “ASSOCIATION” defensively, allowing opponents just 101.1 ppg.

Miami finds a ways to score easy baskets in the post and head coach Erik Spoelstra wants to go into the All-Star break on a positive note.

Bovada.Lv lists the 2018 Miami Heat at +1,110 to win the Eastern Conference Southeast Division Title.

 

The 2018 Toronto Raptors are on top of the standings in the Atlantic division, just a half-game in front of the slumping Boston Celtics.

Toronto has the best home record in the NBA with only four losses and is also good to point spread bettors.

The Raptors are on a five-game winning streak both straight up and to the number.

Head Coach Dwane Casey is in his seventh season on the bench and is one of the best motivators in the NBA.

The Raptors are in the top ten in the league scoring the basketball and defensively. The backcourt of DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry is one of the best in the East; they have been playing alongside on and other for quite some time.

Center Jonas Valanciunas and Power Forward Serge Ibaka makes them a dangerous team in the postseason. Could the 2018 season be the year the Toronto Raptors get into the NBA Finals?

Bovada.Lv has the 2018 Toronto Raptors at +700 to win the Eastern Conference Championship.

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 Predictions, News, Notes, and Odds: Cavaliers organization finally standing up to LeBron.

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

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

The Cleveland Cavaliers organization won the 2016 NBA Finals, beating the Golden State Warriors in a best of seven games series.

The Championship but LeBron James who is an Akron, Ohio native on the “MOUNT RUSHMORE” of great athletes from the Buckeye State.

Owner Dan Gilbert also took a lot of credit by humbling himself and bringing the “KING” back to the “LAND.” Gilbert should have also realized it comes with a price and the owner of Quicken Loans let James begin to make personnel decisions.

LeBron James is an outspoken athlete who wears his political views on his chest. Not always a good thing for a star athlete to do, even in the current toxic political climate.

Former first overall draft pick Kyrie Irving got tired of James continually pressuring management to upgrade an already impressive roster.

 

Kyrie Irving no longer wanted to listen to LeBron James quotes about the team not having enough talent and demanded a trade.

The Cleveland Cavaliers organizations seem to be following Irving’s lead as they held a fire sale bringing in more youth and getting rid of overpaid veterans.

Cleveland traded guard Isaiah Thomas, center Channing Frye and their 2018 first-round pick to the Los Angeles Lakers for guard Jordan Clarkson and, forward Larry Nance Jr.

It also doesn’t matter that Dwyane Wade is LeBron James best friend, the Cavaliers ship “D-WADE” back to Miami for a second-round pick.

Also, wearing a Cavalier uniform for the rest of the season will be former Utah sharpshooter Rodney Hood and Kings point guard George Hill.

Derrick Rose is out of Northeast, Ohio and is a member of the Utah Jazz, how will the spoiled former top overall pick like living in the Salt Lake City?

 

The trade sends a positive message to basketball fans everywhere, and owner Dan Gilbert will no longer let LeBron James hold the organization hostage.

The move shows Cleveland Cavaliers fans that they want to compete this season and beyond with or without LeBron James.

Although James is the best player in the World, by a slim margin, they don’t care if he comes back in the 2018-19 season or not.

This Sports handicapper believes Cleveland will now contend for the 2017 NBA title and James can concentrate on playing basketball instead of multitasking within the organization.

The move is so bold by management that James will change his mind about exercising his option as a free agent at the end of the season and stay in Cleveland.

Great move by the Cavaliers management and the people of Cleveland will see immediate dividends on the court.

George Hill is just as good as Isaiah Thomas and doesn’t need to be pampered. Larry Nance Jr is a budding star, and Jordan Clarkson is an excellent complimentary player.

Rodney Hood has JR Smith type ability from beyond the arc.

2018-19 College Football Picks, News, Notes, and Odds: Is The College Football Signing Day a National Holiday?

Written and authored by NCAA Football Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

Sports Daily Handicapper Predictions are again winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the entire NBA, NCAA Basketball, March Madness, and MLB landscape.

It’s the usual suspects after day-one. Alabama head coach Nick Saban and his staff have always been players on the national scene.

However how long will it last as he’s now competing with former assistants?

The Wednesday, February 7th signing day is almost like a holiday in some areas of the nation.

A lot of football fans took the Monday after the Super Bowl off of work due to hangovers from parties, or their wallets took a hit.

What we are forgetting is the annual NCAA Football signing day has a fan base like no other in sports.

It just goes to show football is king in America and always will be no matter what doctors say about the long-term effects of concussions.

The Southeastern Conference seems always to flex their muscle when it comes to landing the best of the best of high school players in the country.

 

The University of Georgia is the big winner today on paper; we will see later if their top recruiting class pan out or will it be a bust.

Watching the news today from our South Florida office we couldn’t help but notice the American Heritage High School Football program near in Plantation, Florida a Fort Lauderdale suburb.

Head Coach Patrick Surtain, a former NFL smiling from ear to ear as he watched his son Patrick Surtain Jr sign with the Alabama Crimson Tide.

The other cornerback Tyson Campbell put on a Georgia Bulldogs hat, and Nesta Silvera will attend the University of Miami.

Staying in the SEC, the Florida Gators could have landed the next Dak Prescott.

New Gators head coach Dan Mullen committed Emory Jones who was supposed to sign with Ohio State.

The Clemson Tigers also went into the Buckeye State and landed prep standout Jackson Carman the top offensive tackle in the class.

 

However, Urban Meyer shouldn’t be crying as his staff still has the top class.

Penn State head coach James Franklin did another masterful job in the “KEYSTONE STATE” by signing native son Micah Parsons number-four overall and wideout Jahan Dotson who initially set to go to UCLA.

Keep an eye on the Florida State Seminoles and head coach Willie Taggart who will have plenty of four-star recruits who can play with some of the best in the country.

Taggart understands the recruiting base in the Sunshine State better than any coach in the land.

A hot-bed for talented high school prep stars like the fact that Taggart is African American and has the same taste in music.

A lot of five-star recruits in the class of 2018 will not meet expectations; this is just like the NFL draft but another style. We are all looking for certainty with recruiting classes.

However we Football fans love the excitement of knowing our favorite team has a chance to dethrone Nick Saban and the Mighty Alabama Crimson Tide.

2018-19 NFL Picks, News, Notes, and Odds: The Carson Wentz era and Rob Gronkowski contemplating retirement.

Written and authored by National Football League Expert Analyst Charlie Red McDougall. Charliessports.com produces it for Football Betting news and notes.

Expert Sports Predictions are winning at a remarkable rate and will continue through the entire NBA, NCAA Basketball, March Madness, and MLB landscape.

The Philadelphia Eagles bring home the Super Bowl title to one of the most passionate fan bases in all of the sports.

The loyalist in the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE” are just as dedicated to their NBA, NHL, and MLB franchises but February, 4th, 2018 belongs to their Eagles who took down Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the New England Patriots.

Head Coach Doug Pederson will enjoy the victory for a short time. Afterall we are Americans where yesterday is history and tomorrow is a mystery.

The 2018 NFL combine will be underway soon, and the Philadelphia Eagles staff will try to find their next dominant football players.

The past two season’s the scouting department struck gold with quarterback Carson Wentz and defensive end Derek Barnett.

On the other hand, the New England Patriots won’t change much, and the decision not to play former Super Bowl star Malcolm Butler still looms on Patriots fans from coast to coast.

In an emotional press conference, New England tight end Rob Gronkowski said he might retire.

I’m sure it was a sensitive time for the best tight end in the NFL, and he let how he felt get the best of him at the moment.

 

Philadelphia Eagles executive Howie Roseman deserves his share of credit for the Eagles Super Bowl victory over the Patriots.

Owner Jeffrey Lurie also gives Roseman a vote of confidence for bringing back Nick Foles and hiring defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz.

What will the Eagles do with Foles next season, after all, Wentz should be healthy and ready to take over the signal-calling duties?

However, as much as Wentz is beloved in Philadelphia who knows how much his physical or mental makeup is affected by significant knee surgery.

It’s a sticky but pleasant situation for the organization to have, Foles and Wentz are competitors who believe they can have success at the highest level.

Both Nick Foles and Carson Wentz are also spiritual human beings who seem to put their emotions and feelings to the side for the greater of the team.

Lurie, Roseman, and Peterson have a decision to make as they pursue another Super Bowl Title.

Bovada.Lv has the Philadelphia Eagles at 1,200 to win the 2019 Super Bowl.

 

The 2018-19 New England Patriots will be the prohibitive favorites to win the AFC Championship again next year.

Tom Brady will be forty-one years old, and he already looks fragile in the pocket. Earlier in the 2017 season one of Belichick’s favorites, Jimmy Garoppolo got dealt with San Francisco.

We all understand Brady’s ego won’t allow him to go out on a sour note. Tight End, Rob Gronkowski who’s a critical part of the Patriots offense is not so sure.

After Back surgery, wearing an elbow brace, and a severe concussion in the AFC title game “GRONK” says he could be done.

Emotions are tough to gage after a loss, and Rob Gronkowski wore him on his sleeve in the post-game press conference.

Who knows at this point what the former University of Arizona standout will do, he has plenty of options outside of football.

We are all rooting for whatever decision he makes heading into the offseason.

Bovada.Lv, list the 2019 New England Patriots at +500 to win Super Bowl 53.
