Dec 31: NBA & Other Sports Tips

MRF_SportsTips

IT’S the last day of 2015 and while most of us will be enjoying a tipple or two there’s no let-up in the NBA schedule.

There’s a six-match card and the undoubted team of the year – Golden State Warriors – look to end on a high with yet another win.

They travel to a Houston Rockets side who are having a patchy season and whose last 10 matches reads won five, lost five.

The night’s other games include Phoenix Sons at in-form Oklahoma Thunder and LA Clippers at struggling New Orleans Pelicans.

That’s pretty much it for the day’s sporting action – other than some Big Bash cricket from Down Under – so good luck if you’re having a bet and hope you all have a great Hogmanay.

    World Championship darts

    Singles:

    Norris vs Webster, Norris win 11/10 **NAP** **WON**

    Taylor vs Klaasen, Taylor over 5.5 180’s 5/6 **NB** **LOST**

    Norris vs Webster, Norris over 7.5 180’s 6/5 **WON**

    Treble:

    Norris vs Webster, Norris most 180’s
    Taylor vs Klaasen, Taylor win
    Chisnal vs Wright, Chisnall +2.5

    5/4 **LOST**

    Taylor was poor tonight. A majority of his visits resulted in 100’s. He hit 45 tons and only 5 maximums whereas Klaasen hit fifteen 180’s. He has been on the decline forthe best part of two years now and its clear he’s battling deamons which are effecting his performane. Just missed the 180 line by one :(

      It was all about Norris last night mate..great call on both Norris tips and unlucky with Taylor .didnt watch the game in the end until someone at work said he was about to lose..did he cover the over 123.5 checkout in the end?

        Thanks mate. Taylor atually had a dart to win the match with but he missed double top. His highest checkout was only 100 so you made a great call opting for Chizzy’s line instead of his. Peter Wright will probably overtake him in the world rankings now on the back of that defeat.

    Kemba Walker (Charlotte Hornets) Over 27.5 Points, Rebounds and Assists @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 4.8 points **WIN**

    Clippers -2.5 **WIN**

    Jimmy Butler (Chicago Bulls) Over 30.5 PR&A @ 5/6 @ Paddy Power – 2.4 points **WIN**

    Needed a night like that! As you know its new year so I probably won’t be able to see at 10 o’clock tonight so putting this up now. I will advise caution as there is a college football team mixed in and we know what I’ve been like for those. But they are the championship favourites and for good reason. They have one of if not the best defenses in the country, and their running back has just won the Heisman Trophy. Should be a close game but Alabama have too much talent on both ends of the field and ‘should’ progress through to the final.

    The other pick doesn’t need much said. Phoenix have just been slaughtered in Texas and will now travel to a rested OKC on a back to back without Bledsoe. OKC should be too much.

    OKC Thunder -8.5
    Alabama Crimson Tide ML

    0.81/1 @ Skybet – 2.5 points

    No lines yet either but if Curry is out again I would not be surprised to see Houston hand the Warriors their second loss in two nights. Good luck gents!

    • Profile photo of Jordan
      Jordan 11 months ago

      Literally just came out. Houston +3.5. If Curry is out it might be worth a go.

    Brandon Knight Under 22 Points @ 1.83 (PP) – 2.4 Points. – *WON*

    Chicago Bulls -3 @ 1.90 (PP) – 1.5 Points. – *LOST BY 1 POINT*

    Main bet lands with ease as Suns got destroyed, and Knight got 11 points.

    Point spread let’s me down by 1 point, annoying. Might leave them alone for a little while lol.

    Obviously slim pickings today. The Israeli league is the only euro hoops on today. There is a Turkish women’s game on but that’s getting a bit desperate, but it is desperate times and depending on the markets, it does have unders potential.

    Anyway, I’m sticking to the strategy, even if there is only 4 games today!

    Israel Basketball League Fourfold

    Rishon LeZion (-4.5)

    Ironi Nes Ziona (+8.5)

    Maccabi Ashdod (+8.5)

    Tel Aviv (-14.5)

    Fourfold @ 6/1 Skybet – 1pt staked.

    Good luck!

    Israel League Basketball Singles

    Rishon LeZion (-4.5) @ 8/11 Skybet

    Ironi Nes Ziona (+8.5) @ 4/5 PP

    Tel Aviv (-14.5) @ 8/13 Skybet

    Tel Aviv / Hapoel Holon (157-167 Points) @ 2/1 Skybet.

    All 2pt stakes….

    No markets atm but Holon’s worst quarter is the 3rd and it would definatley be worth taking the 3rd Q spread at anything around -5 to -7.

    Good luck!

    ok night , with clippers winning ( cheers jordie for pointing it out ) celtics scraping the team total , didn`t play my gsw as the team news suggested against it. should`ve kept faith with my will barton ..

    but look at my early thoughts.

    nba shortlist

    LA CLIPPERS -3 ( agree with jay here ) watch team news WON
    ptb -6.5 WON
    raptors -6.5 LOST BY 3.5
    nets +7.5 WON
    warriors/mavs ova 211.5 ( BINNED COZ OF TEAM NEWS )
    lakers / celtics ova 207.5 WON
    pacers ova 99 WON IN OT
    bulls ova 102.5 WON

    6/7 , stick with the gut i think

  9. Profile photo of captain

    CLIPPERS +3 on the spread with 365, their on a good run, anyone have any thoughts? seems v appealing

    • Profile photo of hunter
      hunter 11 months ago

      This does look appealing. They seem to be coping well without Griffin and it wouldn’t surprise me if they won in a high scoring encounter. Will be interesting to see what the NBAers say but looks good to me.

  10. Profile photo of captain
    captain 11 months ago

    Disappointing that the Warriors got smacked into oblivion yesterday but they were without Barnes and Curry, still to be losing by 30 points at one stage was worrying.

    D Pistons – 5 2/3 with Ladbrokes, defence for the Pistons has been poor as of late and they have lost their last 3 in a row, however i think they can get back to winning ways tonight against a team they handled well earlier in the season, also they will be fresher and an inplay bet to win the 4th quarter may look good should this be a tight game with MT playing late yesterday and earlier today.

    Clippers +5 2/3 with ladbrokes, Pelicans played a good game against the Rockets and dealt with a poor performance from PTB in their last two home games but i feel the Clippers who have hit some form can be victorious, their dealing well without Griffin and Paul seems to find another gear when Griffin is out ,

    Duuble pays 1.77/1 – 6points

    Brose Baskets +17.5 *won*

    Turkey TKBSL Single

    Not much on today so gonna have a bash at this as I think the total is set to high here. From their last 7 H2H this has gone under the line….

    Istanbul @ Galatasaray (15:30GMT)

    Under 138.5 @ 5/6 Bet365 – 1.1pts staked.

    Good luck!

    Jordan agree totally with your analysis of the Alabama game. I do follow the college football and this team is a machine their current defence would hold up along side some of the nfl sides. I don’t like the -10 spread. Will watch the first few plays before possibly placing a bet there. The other tie Imo for what it worth is to close to predict but should be a great game. One to watch out for tomorrow is Iowa v Stanford where I fancy the +6 for Iowa they lost narrowly 3pts to Michigan state alabamas opponents tonight.

    Florida State – Houston game alert;

    Seminoles starting QB Sean McGuire just took a big shot and if he is out for the rest of the game….. I would seriously consider having big money on Houston who can score on anyone and against a redshirt freshman QB who has thrown 6 passes all season.

      i`m in £30 on houston -1.5

      hope your right

      • Profile photo of primetime
        primetime 11 months ago

        Jeez, I hope so too man! I got a little bit on it too. Sean Maguire’s return is questionable at the moment, I am watching the game, so will keep you updated as long as any news come out.

        On the bright side, J. J. Constantino just took 2 sacks and an incomplete pass… Houston DC will probably dial up a whole load of more blitzes to unsettle the young lad!

    First NBA bet I’m having tonight is the Pacers and Pistons to win, pays 0.8/1 so going a bit bigger than normal on this one, both at home should get the job done

  20. Profile photo of raoul duke
    raoul duke 11 months ago

    There isn’t a standout prop bet that I could call a ‘NAP’ tonight, but there are a couple that I do like and I’ll post later…but my main bet this evening is:

    New Orleans Pelicans -2.5 @ 1.90 (Bet 365) – 5 Points.

    LOADS of people will be on Clippers tonight, but for me Pelicans is the bet.

    Few reasons I like this one, tonight is Clippers 5th game in 7 days, and they aren’t great on back to back.. winning 37.5% (3-5), and 25% as away underdogs (1-3).

    Blake Griffin being out wasn’t an issue last night, but don’t forget that Hornets weren’t full strength either.

    Pel’s are well rested with no huge injury worries, and they are decent at home losing only 3 of their last 10.

    It’s all about Pelicans tonight, good luck!

    Israeli bets have bombed so far but still holding out for a night of profit on the last 2 selections, although I need the 2/1 shot to land.
    Again, worth looking out for the 3rd quarter spread as this is usually when Holon crumble.

    Going to go against the public and back the Tigers for the next one.

    When you are undefeated and number 1 in the country and people still don’t give you credit for your achievement, I envision the Tigers will come out and play with a chip on their shoulders.

    DeShaun Watson will hopefully run and extend play better than his Oklahoma counter part, and the Tigers defense have the slight edge in my limited knowledge.

  38. Profile photo of scattercash

    Good call on Houston earlier Florida state never really recovered after maguire injury. Gave it a good go though. I am not sure on this one. Tigers are 3-0 v top 25 Sooners 5-0. Tigers have a great running game. As I said earlier may sit and watch the first few plays before I commit. Best of luck to all and thanks Huggy got goals 5 6 and 7 to lol.

    NFL chaps – I’ve got an each way bet on the Colts to top their division, think it was one of the Chief’s from the start of the season (not sure what happened to him?).

    I see they are currently 2nd with one to play. Can they still come top?

  42. Profile photo of arwl1976
    arwl1976 11 months ago

    I think there is a possibility colts can finish top as they are 1-1 against the Texans so think it depends on final games but see both colts and Texans winning as against jags and Titans
