Western Conference Finals Prediction

The Western Conference Finals is here. With so many people already penciling in Warriors-Cavaliers III, there seems to be no point in even playing this series if you listen to many experts.

I believe the Spurs deserve more respect then they are getting and I do not expect the Warriors to just walk into the NBA finals.

160108205255-kawhi-leonard-stephen-curry-san-antonio-spurs-v-golden-state-warriors---game-six.1200x672When you are looking at this series from a gamblers point of view, if you decide to play this series, my advice is to go with the Spurs.  You may think I am crazy, but if you are playing against Vegas you are playing by their odds.

The Spurs were +700 underdogs at one point meaning that a $100 bet on the Spurs would win you $700. Currently before tip off the Warriors are -900 favorites, meaning that a $100 bet on the Warriors would only win you $11.  So if you are betting $100 and have it to lose, what is the better investment, $100 to win $700 on San Antonio or risking $100 to win only $11 on Golden State?

I have made a play on the Spurs +700 to win the series.  However, with all money equal my prediction would be Warriors in 7. But in Vegas the odds are not equal, so I am taking the Spurs to shock the world.

 

Game One Pick: Spurs +10.5

Early Season NBA Handicapping Results Dec. 17, 2016

There’s no such thing as a sure thing, but the truth is overall I win more than I lose when it comes to sports handicapping. There are some bad streaks and bad days that arise, but in the end my bankroll is growing, and I’d like to help you do the same.

The NBA season is young and I have been very selective with my NBA bets this season. So far from Oct. 25-Dec. 16.  I have made 44 wagers on the NBA. My record so far is  28-16. I was 15-7 at the 22 game mark and currently 13-9 on the last 22 picks, and that is including my one unit Moneyline +1500 Knicks as a loss even though we cashed in
at the Knicks +17.5 for five units in the same game.

Things won’t be perfect, but I’d like to help you win money.  Please follow me on twitter and Facebook at GetSportsStrong.
