Portland vs Wizards by Khum

Portland
VS
Wizards
What are those guys smoking in Vegas? :))

 

Opening with -1 for this match, in today's conditions? Hillarious.

 

The lines have moved consistently afterwards, but I still see betting value here. A lot, I'd say.

 

Portland are, in these days, a depleted team. They are deeply bleeding in the paint, where Robin Lopez is missing from mid december, Joel Freeland already misses for 2 weeks and both are expected to return in february. Now, the really decisive missing is that of Lamarcus Aldrige, the no1 man of Portland and one of the best players in NBA. He will have a surgery on his radial collateral ligament tear and he will miss for at least 6 weeks from now. Besides, also Nick Batum will probably miss this game and Chris Kaman is still questionable. We are talking about 5 guys, 3 starters, all from the frontcourt. Man, this team is damn unbalanced right now!

 

In these conditions the Traiblazers will be far from being able to compete against one of the most balanced teams in NBA, the Washington Wizards. Moreover the guests are coming tonight in Portland to bounce back after one of the few losses lately (they have 7 wins in the last 10games). They've been knocked by the Spurs on their own arena and that has to be compensated. Unlucky victims will be the depleted Blazers.

 

I expect a win somewhere between 5 and 15 points for the Wizards in this game.

 

Let's go green!

Great Pick. Lillard isn't enough for the Blazers to win. I'm would bet on 76ers @ Grizzlies too. That game looks like easy cash to me. Betting against the 76ers and Knicks is giving me some good results.

Thanks :)
Slow down, man! At least in the last 3-4 days you've totally trashed us :))
8 in a row ... congrats!

Today I'd rather lean on the Knicks ... but I usually avoid the Hornets' games.
01/24/2015 - 21:26
SerbianMaestro
Hornets probably win tonight, Knicks without Calderon and Melo i think

@Khum, I didn't even tried to "trash" you (and of you) lol, today I betted on Yenisey to win, odd 3.60 and it was a win easily, but I was lazy to write preview here, and I will not write anything in next few days, to give you all a chance to catch up with me, and anyways I am more fit for 5th or 6th place in this competition because I am forever banned from bet365, so I can't use that extra 50 euros of reward :P
01/24/2015 - 22:24
SerbianMaestro
Bro how did you get banned on bet365?
01/24/2015 - 23:08
MisterM
@SerbianMaestro, I won around 10 times in a row and then they limited my bets on just 1 euro, then I told them a lot of ugly words and they banned me forever on my personal request, I didn't wanted to be limited on stake of just 1 euro, it was so frustrating, the same thing happened to me on bwin before that.

C'mon ... bet365 are jokers. At least when it comes to tennis, where my playground is.

MisterM, I was just kidding, a reversed way to congratulate you. Good job ;)

@ SerbianMaestro, Calderon is OUT for sure. Melo is questionable.
Considering these, There's no interest for me in that game.
I have good tennis for tonight.
I'll write them here too, in the next hour.
01/24/2015 - 23:32
MisterM
@Khum I know that you were kidding, no offense, I respect all of you guys here and I want for all of us to take as much as we can from the greedy bookies :)

Hhahaha great :-) Wow, Aldridge is playing tonight! And he was supposed to miss 6weeks ?!
01/24/2015 - 23:45
Khum
@SerbianMaestro
This is not good for us :D

"Stunner: LaMarcus Aldridge will play Saturday
LaMarcus Aldridge (thumb) will play against the Wizards on Saturday.
Wow! He is going to put the surgery on hold and will play through the tear in his left thumb. This is easily the most shocking news of the season after the team announced he was going to rest 6-8 weeks."
01/24/2015 - 23:47

Aldridge (thumb) has decided to put off having surgery and will play in Saturday's game against the Wizards.

@Khum or @anyone? I am thinking on making account on Marathonbet, any toughts or advices about that? I have account on William Hill and they are great but I saw better odds on Marathonbet so I tought about to give them a chance too. I need some bookie who have all bets possible on basketball.
01/25/2015 - 00:13

@MisterM - My personal experience with Marathonbet wasn't very good because they force to make smaller bets and put certain limits on the account. Not sure how this works...
01/25/2015 - 00:27
Khaleem
Aldridge is playing?! Sh*t!! Is he even in condition of doing a good game, or to last long minutes? We're talking about his thumb... No thumb no basketball right? That will make my bet against the Blazers even riskier knowing that they're playing home.
01/25/2015 - 00:33
Khum
For me they are perfect for tennis and basketball.
The only problem is that, sometimes they have limitations.
And they are perfect if you play the favourites baut they don't match bet365 if you wanna jump on the underdog moneyline.

@Mister of basket
i have account with Marathonbet,I get on well,them I was never limited the bet bacause i never won 10 in a row LOL , but they have a limit on the bet :)fast Payouts.
01/25/2015 - 00:41
MisterM
Thank for your answers guys, I had chat with operator on Marathonbet and he told me that they would probably limit me if I win more times in a row (that was a bit "of book" from him, but he advised me well, so I will stick with William Hill, they let me do the winning without limitations) :) I am making a website over which I will instruct people to bet on my way (that will be done in 10-20 days), I developed some system in which I always win, and with my basketball accuracy it is "deadly" trust me :) anyone interested in that?
01/25/2015 - 01:01
Khum
You have made me curious to scan a bit William Hill's tennis offer :D
01/25/2015 - 01:14
Khaleem
@MisterM I certainly am. Good luck with that website :)
01/25/2015 - 01:21
Khum
Hmm ... they're pretty limeted in tennis options ... at least in those options I'm interested in.
01/25/2015 - 01:24
Nathan
Mister m, please do share your website, and by all means submit your tips so we can continue to make bookies suffer! And... If you don't get to the full write up, I would follow a tip in the comments section if you have further reccimendations, you hav good track record... Thanks

Aldridge will be surprisingly (didn't he need surgery originally for his injury?) back according to NBA match preview: http://www.nba.com/games/20150124/WASPOR/gameinfo.html?ls=slt
01/25/2015 - 02:15
nat
@MisterM, I fully agree with nathan, you are so great ! So, if you don't have time for full write up, could you give us your great tips in one general preview and your tips in the comments section, this should br great! I think most of us will also be interested in your website, just keep us aware thank you
01/25/2015 - 02:15
Khaleem
@Pace Yeah. Shouldn't Aldridge be saving himself to the playoffs? For the sake of my bet, I hope that his thumb injury overwhelms him. Shame on me for saying that cuz I really enjoy watching Aldridge play.
01/25/2015 - 02:39
MisterM
Hey all, I think we broke a record in comments on one preview, cheers for that :)
01/25/2015 - 02:59
Pace
@Khaleem Yes he should. How in the earth can man even play with torn ligament at thumb?! But absolutely he shouldn't be playing at his best so I think this bet still has value or what?
01/25/2015 - 03:01
Khum
I wouldn't be too worried.
The bet is for sure more difficult now, but Aldrige is not ok these days anyways.
He's been on the court in 3 of the 5 loses they've had in the last 6 games, so the bet is not anymore easy money, but it's still possible to be covered.
Let's keep the faith, those of us who have already went for it ;)

MisterM, have you tried pinnacle? wont restrict your bet limits like b365 anyway, dont know much about marathon
01/25/2015 - 04:13
Khaleem
Doctors must have said: "Well, that thumb can't get any worse" and Aldridge took that in a positive way. Guess man doesn't need 2 hands to play basket? :/
01/25/2015 - 05:32
Mike
Without sounding like an idiot what is '-5' ? Im on william hill not sure if I can do asian handicap.
01/25/2015 - 06:20
Khaleem
Guess my worries were right after all... Aldridge 26p. What kind of 6-week injury is that?!!! He didn't even look bothered :/
