How a Summer of Wheeling and Dealing Has Affected NBA Futures Odds for 2019-20

I’ve got to listen to my gut more often, ladies and gents. Something just told me it was too early to write futures-betting NBA editorials in June of ’19…but I wanted to defend the Golden State Warriors from what I felt was overwrought criticism and foolish pundits declaring a dynasty over and done. As it […]

FIBA World Cup Basketball: Group A Through Group D Roster Analysis and Futures Odds

The 2019 FIBA World Cup is too massive an event for LegitGamblingSites.com’s sports blog to publish 1 gigantic catch-all preview and call it a day. NBA junkies will quickly catch onto the fact that Group A does not include Team USA and its roster of National Basketball Association studs – nor does Group B, Group […]

NCAA Basketball 2019-20: Previewing the Top Teams and Recruiting Classes in College Hoops

I’ve been writing an awful lot about the “branding” of sports lately. Most of my editorials have focused on how the branding of professional sports can practically enslave fans and gamblers to the point where they don’t think any league but the NFL or NBA is worth speculating on. But the current move to allow […]

Could Kevin Durant’s Long-Term Injury Woes Actually Help Golden State?

Sometimes, I feel like too much of a hype-man. An exaggerator in print. Example – I might describe a prep-school athlete to excited local fans as “100% all talent!” even though on a wider scale it is plain that the student does not possess all of the talent. He or she might not even reach […]

How to Compare NBA Talent With EuroLeague Veterans

There is a uniquely American syndrome in international sports handicapping that I like to call “counting on fingers and toes.” “Well, funny you should ask that Ray, because I’ve got a prediction for you. Japan only has 2 Premier League players, while Qatar has 0 Premier League players in this match, so I expect the […]

Golden State Warriors vs Toronto Raptors: Vegas Lines and Predictions for Game 6

Skin. O’. The. Teeth. The Golden State Warriors were battered, spent, and frustrated by the 2nd half of Game 5 in Toronto. Kawhi Leonard and the Raptors carried a 3-1 series lead into the contest on Monday night. Leonard would post a double-double as Nick Nurse’s squad engineered a late rally. Weakened by yet another […]

2019 NBA Finals: Golden State vs Toronto Series Price, Game 1 Lines and Prop Bets

There have been several big doses of irony in spring and summer sports this year. Try Tiger Woods triumphantly embracing his son 22 years after his late father did the same next to the 18th green at Augusta National. Or how about Manchester City winning the English domestic “treble” yet somehow allowing 2 rival clubs […]

How NBA Handicapping Changes in the Postseason

There are 2 universal truths of NBA basketball betting in the regular season. First that it is fun – it will never stop being fun. And the other truth? It’s that we all know the drill already. The fall, winter and early spring come with predictable narratives in Association hoops from game-by-game and wide-view angles. […]

NBA Conference Finals: Golden State vs Portland Series Price and Game 1 Odds

Loyal blog readers probably think we’re fans of college basketball more than NBA hoops. The truth is that there is no such bias at LegitGamblingSites.com – the NCAA is just a little bit more friendly when it comes to the schedule. We’re more of a weekly handicapping journal. Leagues that run 7-game playoff series tilts […]

Did a Marvelous 2018-19 Season Put College Basketball Back on Top?

It’s time to stop acting as though the level of play – graded on a scale of 1-through-10 from average Pee Wee level to LeBron James – is the #1 factor in whether a sports league is popular or not. Look at the gridiron. The Alliance of American Football (and most certainly Vince McMahon’s XFL) […]

Warriors at Clippers: Game 3 Betting Lines and Predictions

The National Basketball Association is living proof that “parity” among a majority of teams is not a necessary ingredient for fans to enjoy a sport. Lack of parity in the NBA actually makes the games more interesting. If you input 5 or 10 NHL match-ups into a computer and ask it to produce random final […]

An Introduction to Statistical Modeling for Basketball Handicappers

Successful sports bettors can use models to help them make good betting decisions. A well-designed model lets you plug in information to help you predict the outcomes of games and helps you find lines that offer value. Models come in all shapes and sizes, and the most common ones use statistics. This page is designed […]
