NBA Picks


With the tip off to the 2015-16 NBA Regular Season exactly two months away—October 27—there’s no better time than now to try to find some perceived value in the NBA Futures markets.

- I realize the focus of the vast majority of bettors currently is on the start of the NFL and college football seasons, but the start of the 2015-16 NBA campaign is only two months away.

Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry are the league's most recent MVPs, but they both trail LeBron James in the early basketball odds for 2015-16. Which one's the better bet?


He's still considered the best basketball player in the universe, and the early NBA odds from across the pond have LeBron James as next year's runaway MVP choice.


Even basketball teams undergo corporate downsizing. The Portland Trail Blazers should be a lot worse next year, but does that mean they don't belong in our NBA picks?

- If you’re new to NBA betting, it can be a daunting 82-game schedule. However, if you can manage your bankroll throughout the entire season, it can be very profitable.

If you know which NBA teams have done the most to improve this offseason, you're already halfway toward figuring out who will beat the basketball odds next year.


It was almost too easy to beat the NBA odds last year – if you bought low on the Boston Celtics and the Milwaukee Bucks. Who will emerge from the East this time?


NBA rookies usually don't do much to influence our basketball picks, but this year's crop of first-year players is both deep and talented enough to deserve some attention.


Do the Dallas Mavericks really belong in the “loser” category after failing to sign DeAndre Jordan in free agency? The basketball odds could prove differently next year.


Weren't the Minnesota Timberwolves supposed to beat up the NBA odds last year? Injuries threw a wrench into their season, but the Wolves look even more valuable for 2015-16.

- Can you make big money laying points with hefty favorites in the NBA? You can if you know the betting trends and what to look for.
- This is my final betting article of the 2015 NBA season. GSW were able to finish things off for their 1st title since 1975. Did we learn anything that might help project futures?
- Even before the Golden State Warriors had won the NBA championship, the basketball odds were up on the board for the 2015-16 season. Where do these numbers come from?

If you thought this summer was busy for NBA players and executives, you ain't seen nothing yet. Next year's free-agent frenzy could completely shake up our basketball picks.
