NBA PLAYOFF RECAP – By SBO.ag
The action is hot and heavy on the hardwood for the opening round of the NBA Playoffs. With most series hitting their midway points, we look at which teams have been cashing in – and burning bettors – when it comes to the NBA betting lines.
The Brooklyn Nets may be down 0-2 to the Atlanta Hawks, but they’ve put a good scare into the No. 1 seed in the East and have managed to cover the spread in the first two games of this series. Now, with the series swinging to Brooklyn, the Nets should hold that value as they try to avoid a series sweep. Brooklyn won 13 of its final 19 games down the stretch, with eight of those victories coming in the Barclays Center. [KEEP READING…]
The Golden State Warriors win it all in 2015!
Efficiency rating and rankings have become the standard measurement of teams and players and if you are not familiar with those numbers, and you’re a sports bettor, you might want to do a little research and get to know what they mean. Very simply put Offensive Efficiency (OEFF = points scored per 100 possessions) and Defensive Efficiency (DEFF = points allowed per 100 possessions) are great ways to evaluate teams and how good they truly are. The league average for OEFF this season was 105.4 while the defensive number was 105.5. The LA Clippers were the most efficient offensive in the NBA at 112.2 points per 100 possessions while the Golden State Warriors held the best defensive efficiency rating in the league of 101.3. These numbers can be useful in predicting an NBA Champion if past history tells us anything which we’ll explain below. [KEEP READING…]
ASA’s MLB Season Total Win Bets
San Diego Padres
UNDER 84.5 Wins
San Diego hasn’t exceeded 77 wins since 2010, yet their total price here is set at 84.5 wins. The Padres had a number of flashy, high-risk moves that brought in a lot of attention, but we’re skeptical the payoff will be drastic. They acquired Wil Myers from Tampa Bay, Matt Kemp from LA Dodgers, and Justin Upton from Atlanta. Myers has yet to blossom into the star that he was expected to be while Matt Kemp has spent far too much time on the DL in recent past. [KEEP READING…]
ASA’s MLB Longshot to Win the World Series Bet
World Series Longshot
Cleveland Indians – 25/1
Everyone remembers the improbable run by the Kansas City Royals in the playoffs, but lost in the shuffle is the fact that the Cleveland finished just three games out of a wild card spot. In the AL Central, Detroit and Kansas City are expected to regress a bit after a few key personnel losses, making the Indians a trendy pick to get back to the playoffs and reach the World Series.

ASA’s Bracketology – 5 vs. 12 Breakdown
ASA‘s Bracketology – 5 vs. 12 Breakdown
Since 1990, No. 5 seeds are just 59-37 SU (61.5%) and 44-51-1 (45.8%) vs. 12-seeds. There have been just two years since 1990 that a No. 12 seed hasn’t upset a No. 5 seed. Three No. 12 seeds won in the 2014 NCAA Tournament (Stephen F. Austin, Harvard, and North Dakota State). ASA takes a closer look at the candidates to continue the trend this season. [KEEP READING…]
ASA’s Bracketology – Early Look at Contenders
ASA’s Bracketology – February 13th American Sports Analysts
Eleven of the last 12 college basketball national champions have finished above, what we’ll call, the “Kenpom Line.” The KenPom Line refers to teams that finish in both the top 18 in KenPom’s offensive efficiency and top 21 in KenPom’s defensive efficiency rankings. Each of the last 12 champions have all ranked in the top 21 in KenPom’s defensive efficiency rating (including seven that finished in the top 10) and 11 of those 12 also finished in the top 18 in offensive efficiency. Last year’s UConn Huskies were the lone outlier to win the championship (finished 39th in offensive efficiency). [KEEP READING…]
