Green Bay Packers Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Picks, Odds Preview, & Predictions

Green Bay Packers Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Picks, Odds Preview, & Predictions

This Sunday, we’ll once more witness the battle of all-time quarterbacks as Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay (3-2 SU, 2-3 ATS) hosts the undefeated Aaron Rodgers’ Green Bay (4-0 SU, 4-0 ATS). Rodgers has been more impressive so far and has emerged as an early MVP candidate as the Packers won all four of their opening games covering the spread each time.

Bovada NFL Sportsbook Betting Topbar

Green Bay Packers Vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Betting Line Movements

The Bucs opened as -2.5 favorites, but the line has gone up and down all week and is currently standing at evens or favoring the Packers by -1 depending on the pay per head bookie. The total went up to 55.5 after opening as low as 52.

Thoughts on Green Bay

The Packers have been a real force offensively so far and are averaging the league-leading 38 points per game. This is even more impressive if we take into account the fact that they have been without their star receiver Davante Adams in all but one game. Still, Rodgers found the way to make the most of his other targets. The rushers also stepped up with the Green Bay Packers boasting the top 5 running offense in the NFL. The defense has been out of the spotlight a bit due to the excellent attacking displays, but they also put in some great performances, especially the pass rusher Za’Darius Smith who has already recorded 5 sacks.

From the fantasy perspective, Rodgers has been nothing sort of spectacular this season, but on Sunday he’s going against the defense that has allowed only 7 touchdowns in 5 games. Still, he’s getting Davante Adams back, and we are expecting another big performance. Speaking of Adams, he’ll be raring to go and will get a lion’s share of passes, especially with Allen Lazard out. RB Aaron Jones will be hoping to continue his touchdown-a-game streak and his value shouldn’t decrease with Adams’ return. The same can’t be said for TE Robert Tonyan. Tonyan has been overperforming and the Bucks defense is superb defending the tight ends.

Thoughts On Tampa Bay

It seems that we’ll spend this season wondering which Tom Brady are we going to get each week. Only a week after destroying the Chargers with 5 touchdowns, he had a below-par display in Chicago topped of with a blunder on the final drive as he lost track of the number of downs.

However, he’s been really good at home this season and will surely be motivated after Thursday’s performance. Still, the main strength of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this season has been their defense. They rank second in total defense and first against the run, but it’s their pass defense that will have the most difficult task with Aaron Rodgers on the opposing side.

The last week’s game will probably scare fantasy players off of Brady, but on Sunday, he’ll finally have both of his key receivers, Mike Evans and Chris Goodwin ready to go. Evans has been great so far in the absence of Goodwin, and we believe his good form will continue even though his usage may suffer a little.

NFL Betting Pick: Tampa Bay +1

The Packers offense has dominated so far, but we can say the same for the Bucks defense. Both teams had plenty of time to rest, and we can expect a really close game where the home advantage could be the deciding factor.

The Los Angeles Lakers Move One Win Away From NBA Title

The Los Angeles Lakers Move One Win Away From NBA Title

The 2019/2020 NBA season has been a wild ride. The regular season came to a complete stop in mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Getting things restarted hit more than a few bumps in the road. The ultimate restart plan relied heavily on a “bubble” environment in Orlando to play the games.

Bovada NBA Sportsbook Betting Topbar

Will The Los Angeles Lakers Win The NBA Title In The Next Game?

Through it all, Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers remained one of the top three teams favored to win. The Milwaukee Bucks were the clear favorites to win the NBA’s Eastern Conference but they made an early exit. The Miami Heat breezed past the Bucks in five games in the second round. The other team in Los Angeles failed to meet expectations when the Clippers were stunned by Denver.

Tuesday’s 102-96 victory against Miami in Game 4 of the NBA Finals gives the Lakers a 3-1 series lead. The games have been close with LA going 1-3 against the spread as the favorite in each contest.

Yet, the veteran leadership of James plus the stellar play of Anthony Davis has been too much for the Heat. Nothing is over until it is over but Miami’s chances to win the remaining three games do not look too good.

What Do The Basketball Odds On The NBA Betting Board Look Like?

The NBA betting board at Intertops online sportsbook tends to agree. The early betting line on Friday’s Game 5 has Los Angeles favored by seven points. The Lakers are designated as the home team but that has little impact on the betting line. The bubble games in Orlando are a neutral site.

The betting odds for the moneyline has the Lakers set at -310 favorites. You can get +260 odds on Miami as the underdog.

I could see betting on the Heat to extend this series one more game. They have outpaced expectations as underdogs throughout these playoffs. They were underdogs against the Bucks in the first four games of that series. In its 4-2 series win against Boston, Miami closed as underdogs in all six games.

Along with the Heats’ straight-up 13-6 record in 19 postseason games, they have gone 15-4 ATS.

Another way to bet Friday’s Game 5 is the UNDER on the 216 ½-point total line. It has stayed UNDER in three of the first four games against slightly higher closing lines. The only game that went OVER was the Lakers’ 124-114 victory in Game 2. The total line closed at 216 ½ points. The other three games have remained rather low-scoring contests.

Assuming that the Lakers go on to win the NBA Championship, the only question would be which LA player is named MVP? James is such a heavy favorite that this betting future is “off the board”. Yet, Davis should still get some of the votes. The duo of James and Davis has finally met expectations when it needed to the most.

The 2019/2020 NBA season will go down as memorable for a number of reasons. The Lakers’ run to a title will be one of them. If Miami comes back to win, that would top the list.

Tennessee Titans Becomes The First NFL Team With Positive COVID-19 Cases

Tennessee Titans Become First NFL Team With Positive COVID-19 Cases

The NFL’s worst nightmare just became reality. One of the 32 teams has discovered multiple outbreaks of COVID-19. The Tennessee Titans have closed their team facility as of Tuesday, Sept. 29.

It has been reported that three players have tested positive for the coronavirus. There are five more positive results among team personnel. The Titans are coming off a thrilling 31-30 road win against the Minnesota Vikings. As an added precaution, the Vikings have also shut down their practice facility until further notice.

Now Tennessee Titans Become First NFL Team With Positive COVID-19 Cases, What Happens?

The fate of Tennessee’s home game against the Pittsburgh Steelers remains up in the air. Most online sportsbooks such as BetOnline have taken this game “off the board.” The Titans opened as slight 1 ½-point underdogs.

The team facilities in Nashville will remain closed until Saturday. The eight positive tests were all asymptomatic according to a team source. This information was passed on in a recent ESPN report.

Team sources from Minnesota confirmed there were no positive COVID-19 tests among players and other team personnel. This could be subject to change. League contact tracing noted there were as many as 48 close contacts with the eight positive cases. The Vikings will refrain from returning to their practice facility until all the tests have been confirmed as negative.

It was probably only a matter of time before NFL players and team personnel tested positive for the virus. The burning question is where does the league go from here. Unlike MLB games that can easily be made up, there is little room for error in the 17-week NFL schedule.

If Tennessee, and possibly even Minnesota, cannot play this Sunday, the team’s bye week offers the only make-up date.

The official statement from the NFL confirmed the two impacted team’s early actions. They will continue “to evaluate close contacts, perform additional testing and monitor developments.” The league statement added the phrase “…with health and safety as our primary consideration.”

The Titans did play last week’s game with their defensive coach Shane Bowen. He was placed in protocol after testing positive before the team departed for Minnesota. Offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson was placed in COVID-19 protocol earlier this month. The team was hoping that Wilson could return to practice this week.

The NFL did not release any official statements concerning Sunday’s home game against Pittsburgh. It also refrained from commenting on the Vikings’ upcoming road game against the Houston Texans.

Any player that tests positive for COVID-19 can return to the practice field in 10 days as long as they remain asymptomatic. They can return in five days with back-to-back negative tests. Players with any symptoms can return 10 days after they first appear. They also need to wait 72 hours after those symptoms end.

All players testing positive for the virus must be cleared by the team’s physician. They must also undergo cardiac testing as part of that protocol. Given the fluidity of the situation, these two games are likely to remain off the online betting board at Bovada.

The Miami Heat Prepare For A Pivotal Game 4 As The Online Betting Underdogs

The Miami Heat Prepare For A Pivotal Game 4 As Underdogs

The NBA’s Eastern Conference Finals have been as good as advertised. The Miami Heat opened up a quick 2-0 series lead in this best-of-seven clash. The Boston Celtics cut that lead in half with an inspired victory in Game 3.

The series moves to Game 4 in the NBA’s Orlando bubble. Tip-off is set for Wednesday night at 8:30 p.m. (ET). ESPN will carry the national broadcast. SportsBetting.ag has listed Boston as a three-point favorite with the total set at 214 points.

GTbets football Sportsbooks

How Are The Miami Heat Preparing For A Pivotal Game 4 As The Betting Underdogs?

Miami has closed as an underdog in all three games. The Heat won the series opener 117-114 in overtime as two-point underdogs. In another tight matchup, they came out on top 106-101 in Game 2 as three-point underdogs on the closing line.

Following the win in Game 2, Miami had posted a straight-up 10-1 record in 11 previous postseason games. It opened the playoffs with an efficient four-game sweep of Indiana. This was followed by an improbable 4-1 series win against the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks.

For any bettors along for this impressive ride, they were rewarded handsomely with a matching 10-1 record against the spread.

That run finally came to an end in Game 3. Boston needed a pair of overtime periods to get the 117-106 win. The Heat closed as 3 ½-point underdogs in that game.

The Celtics are still down in this series. However, Wednesday’s Game 4 could be seen as a must-win situation for Miami. Sunday’s loss may have created a major shift in momentum back towards Boston. The Heat do not want this to turn into a best-of-three scenario. That could create too much momentum to overcome.

US Sportsbook Update The Basketball Betting Series Price

Following Bovada updated series price, Boston opened as a -135 favorite. Miami’s odds to win this series as an underdog were +115. The 2-0 lead shifted things heavily in the Heats’ favor. However, with Sunday’s loss, the odds have been tempered a bit.

The current series price odds after the first three NBA Betting games is a complete reversal. The Heat are listed as -135 favorites with Boston set as a +115 underdog. This means you should bet Miami now if you think it wins Wednesday night’s game. If you have Boston winning Game 4, this becomes a wait-and see bet. The Heat would still be in position to win this series.

The same holds true if you are a Boston fan. Bet the Celtics now if you have them winning Game 4. They will once again become series favorites with the games tied 2-2. A loss on Wednesday would create a 3-1 deficit, which are hard to overcome.

Either way, this promises to be an extremely exciting series. The early results produced one overtime game, one double-overtime game and a tight five-point win. The teams matchup extremely well against one another.

This comes down to big-time players making big plays at the right time. The key for Miami could be Jimmie Butler. The key for Boston could be Jayson Tatum.

NBA Eastern Conference Finals Betting Tip Sheet

NBA Eastern Conference Finals Betting Tip Sheet

In a surprising turn of events, the Miami Heat advanced to the NBA Eastern Conference Finals. As heavy underdogs against the No. 1 seed Milwaukee Bucks, the Heat won that best-of-seven series in just five games.

The Boston Celtics needed all seven games to get past the Toronto Raptors in the conference semifinals. Boston was favored in that series but Toronto was the defending NBA Champion. The Celtics finished the regular season as second-favorites behind Milwaukee to win the East.

Use The NBA Eastern Conference Finals Betting Tip Sheet To Find The Best Basketball Bets

Game 1 of the Miami vs. Boston series is set for Tuesday, Sept. 15. Intertops online sportsbook has the Celtics listed as slight 1 ½-point favorites. They are designated as the home team in the NBA Orlando bubble. The total line for Game 1 has been set at 208 ½ points.

Miami has been a solid bet throughout the playoffs. In nine previous games, it has won eight both straight-up and against the spread. This includes a four-game sweep against Indiana in the opening round. The total has stayed UNDER in six of those nine games.

Boston eliminated the Philadelphia 76ers in a four-game SU sweep (3-1 ATS) to open its playoff run. After taking a 2-0 series lead against Toronto (SU and ATS), the Celtics lost three of the next four games SU (2-2 ATS). Closing Game 7 as a three-point favorite, Boston turned things around with a 92-87 win.

The opening series price for this matchup slightly favors Boston at -135 odds. The series price odds Miami wins are set at +115.

The best time to bet this series could be after Tuesday’s Game 1 regardless of which team wins. Game 2 is set for Thursday night at 7 p.m. (ET) on ESPN.

If the Heat keep things rolling win a win on Tuesday, there will be an attractive price on Boston moving forward. If Miami comes up short as a slight underdog, all the value would shift its way as a heavier series underdog.

Betting any NBA playoff series is all about finding the best value in the numbers. This tends to fluctuate with every game that is played.

A common betting strategy would be to take the favorite ahead of the series opener. Depending on the early results, you can double down on that bet. You also have the option to hedge that bet if the early results do not fall your way.

The Celtics had the slight 2-1 edge (SU and ATS) over the Heat in three regular season games this season. Boston beat the Heat at home and on the road. Miami beat the Celtics 112-106 on Aug. 4 in a late regular season game in the Orlando bubble.

A few other betting trends to make note of heading into this series include:

  1. Miami is 5-0 ATS in its last five road games
  2. Boston has a 7-1 SU record in its last eight home games against the Heat
  3. The total has stayed UNDER in eight of Boston’s last nine games overall

Major Upset Shakes Up NBA Betting Futures

Major Upset Shakes Up NBA Betting Futures

The Milwaukee Bucks were heavy favorites to win the Eastern Conference title. This was the case before the first game of the 2019/2020 NBA season was ever played. It was the case at Christmas when the Bucks lost to the Philadelphia 76ers as three-point road favorites.

It was the case in early March when the season was put on hold because of the coronavirus. Milwaukee was still favored to win at the restart on July 31. Bettors did not lose faith when the Bucks stumbled to a straight-up 3-5 record in eight final regular-season games.

GTbets football Sportsbooks

What Are The Major Upsets That Are Shaking Up NBA Betting Futures?

After losing Game 1 of its opening-round playoff matchup against Orlando, Milwaukee went on to win four straight games. This maintained its status as the team to beat in the East. As a heavy series favorite against Miami in the second round, the cracks in the foundation started to expand.

Three straight losses to the Heat dug too deep of a hole. The Bucks won Game 3 only to lose the series 4-1. Miami beat the Bucks 103-94 in Game 5 with Milwaukee closing as a 5 ½-point underdog.

The Heat now advance to the conference finals. They will face the winner of the Toronto vs. Boston series. The Raptors are the reigning NBA Champs. But they trail the Celtics two games to three heading into Wednesday night’s Game 6.

Boston has been opened as a 3 ½-point favorite. Regardless of how that series ends, the NBA betting futures in the East have been turned upside down.

The Western Conference playoffs are going as planned. The Los Angeles Lakers have a 2-1 series lead against the Houston Rockets. The Los Angeles Clippers are up 2-1 against the Denver Nuggets. They head into Wednesday’s Game 4 as eight-point favorites.

Something crazy could happen out west but the betting odds heavily favor an all-LA conference finals. This was the prediction before the season. It was also favored at Christmas, early March and at the start of the postseason.

Breaking down the updated NBA futures at BetOnline sportsbook, Miami is now a +100 favorite to win the East. Boston is next at +125 with Toronto listed as a +600 longshot.

Of the four remaining teams in the West, the Clippers get the nod as -120 favorites. The Lakers are next at +140 odds. Houston (+1000) and Denver (+3300) fill out the rest of the list as clear longshots.

The updated breakdown for winning this year’s NBA Championship is as follows:

  1. LA Clippers +175
  2. Los Angeles Lakers +230
  3. Miami Heat +400
  4. Boston Celtics +500< /li>
  5. Toronto Raptors +1600
  6. Houston Rockets +2000
  7. Denver Nuggets +6600

Miami would have to be the highest valued pick on the board. The Heat already knocked off an elite team in a best-of-seven series. That will provide quite a bit of momentum against whichever team they face next.

As a side bet, the Milwaukee Bucks are set as -250 favorites to resign Giannis Antetokounmpo to a Supermax contract this offseason.

Picks & Predictions For Betting The Miami Heat Vs. Milwaukee Bucks Series

Betting The Miami Heat Vs. Milwaukee Bucks Series

Both the Miami Heat and the Milwaukee Bucks advanced to the second round of the NBA’s Eastern Conference playoffs. The Heat cruised past the Indiana Pacers with four-straight wins. They also covered against the spread closing as favorites in each contest. Miami came into the playoffs as the No. 4 seed in the East.

The top-seeded Bucks faced the No. 8 Orlando Magic in the opening round. They were stunned 122-110 in Game 1 as 14-point favorites. Milwaukee got the wake-up call it needed. It reeled off four-straight victories while covering the closing spread in all four games.

How To Win Money Betting The Miami Heat Vs. Milwaukee Bucks Series

Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals was set for Monday night. Miami was looking to extend its postseason winning streak to five games both SU and ATS. The Heat’s Jimmie Butler got hot and the Heat knocked off the Bucks 115-104. They closed as five-point underdogs at Bet Online sportsbook . Game 2 is set for Wednesday nights NBA Betting action with Milwaukee listed as a 4.5-point favorite.

The Bucks remain solid favorites to win this series despite the early 0-1 hole. This has been the best team in the East all season long. It struggled a bit coming off the extended layoff. But the four victories in a row over Orlando appeared to have the team back on track.

Sports bettors looking for value in all the posted odds concerning this best-of-seven series have options.

With the Game 1 loss, Milwaukee is a more plausible -180 favorite to win the series. The Game 1 lost dramatically reduced the higher risk as favorites before the series got underway. The fact that the Bucks got blown out in the opener has to raise some concern. It is still hard to see Milwaukee losing three more games to the Heat before winning four.

Miami’s series price odds are now +160. A loss on Wednesday would raise that number back up higher. Yet, another upset would begin to make things rather interesting.

If you are still confident the Bucks are advancing on, grab the current series price at -180. If you are leaning towards Miami coming off an impressive win, this would still be a wait and see situation.

Another way to bet this series is the exact finish. The best odds on the board at +250 is the Bucks winning in six games 4-2.

The odds move to +300 the Bucks win in the full seven games. Milwaukee running the table over the next four games to win in five is set at +400. They way Miami played in Game 1, it is hard seeing the Heat losing four-straight games.

The best value on the board at BetOnline is Milwaukee in six at +250. The best bet on Miami winning this series would be the +600 odds on a 4-3 series finish. If the Heat are going to advance to the conference finals, they are going to need the full seven games.

You can also get favorable +150 betting odds that this series ends in six games regardless of the winner.

Betting Philadelphia 76er’s Special NBA Props

Betting Philadelphia 76er’s Special NBA Props

The Philadelphia 76ers have been one of the more interesting stories in the NBA the past several years. A rise from the ashes put them in the spotlight. Yet, a first-round sweep in this year’s playoffs against rival Boston suddenly has this team at a crossroads.

Intertops us sportsbook betting

Learn How To Win Betting Philadelphia 76er’s Special NBA Props

First, they perfected the art of tanking as part of ‘The Process.’ Starting in 2013 through 2016/2017 season, the team won a grand total of 75 games. Along the way, they added Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid as the cornerstones of the franchise.

Philly went on to win 52 games the next season but excited the playoffs in the second round. It was basically a repeat performance in the 2018/2019 season.

Coming into this season, a few added pieces to the puzzle (such as veteran Al Horford) raised expectations. Inconsistency and injury plague the team at the restart. It fizzled out quickly in four-straight losses to the Celtics.

US Online Sportsbooks Special Prop Betting Odds

BetOnline sportsbook has taken up the Sixers’ cause with a list of special props outlining their future. The first casualty was head coach Brett Brown. He was fired shortly after the series loss to Boston.

The first prop covers the team’s next head coach. Tyronn Lue is the favorite at +100. However, he is also on the short list of teams looking for a new head coach. He is probably the best option but also in high demand.

Ime Udoka is second at +300. He was an assistant coach with Brown. The 76ers could go in that direction if GM Elton Brand has confidence he can turn things around.

Related: Online Betting Reaction To The Bucks And Lakers’ Losses In NBA Playoff Opener.

One interesting option is Villanova head coach Jay Wright at +400. However, he has given no indication he is looking to leave the college ranks. A few other candidates on the list are:

  1. Kenny Atkinson +600
  2. Sam Cassell +700
  3. Mark Jackson +800
  4. Jason Kidd +900

Pick: Go with Udoka as the best value play.

Another prop covers the future of three key players. The betting odds for this trio all heavily favor them staying with the team.

Al Horford’s odds to return are -600 against +350 for NO.

The odds that Simmons returns to the team are -800. The odds he will not be back are +425.
Also on the list is Embiid as the Sixers’ top franchise player. His odds to return are -1000 against +550 odds he plays elsewhere.

Maybe Brand is laying most of this year’s failure on Brown. He has publicly stated that he is not looking to trade Simmons or Embiid. He is looking to rebuild around those two All-Star players.

Indeed, this makes all the sense in the world considering each player’s young tenure in the NBA. Simmons is 24 and Embiid is 26. It also appears that both players want to stay in Philly which is another plus.

You might want to take a flyer on the favorable +350 odds that Horford departs. Brand did say everything else remains “on the table.”
