Teddy and Pauly bring us another insightful Sports B.I.T for Wednesday's slate. They discuss Crawford slipping in the LA Clippers and whether it will affect tonight's NBA pick.

Tonight's Shocking Betting Nuggets
Wednesday’s SpotsBIT show is positively loaded with the type of quality information that bettors need, but aren’t getting anywhere else. Teddy and Pauly aren’t looking to sell you anything – they’re looking to get eyeballs and build a strong internet following for this daily ‘SportsCenter for Gamblers’. There’s no hidden agenda here. And there’s no holding back on the strong information that Teddy and Pauly present every day. If you don’t learn at least one new FACT about sportsbetting, NBA picks, about ‘capping theory and strategy and/or about the big games that are going that night, you probably weren’t paying attention to the show!

For example, Wednesday’s show is chock full of interesting, informative betting nuggets. As always, Teddy and Pauly open the show with a frank discussion of the bad beats and bad bets from the previous night. This ‘post mortem’ recap allows bettors to learn from their mistakes and focus on the areas of their greatest likely successes.

 

Time For Pacers Bettors To Make Choices
Last night brought an interesting conundrum for Indiana Pacers bettors. If you took the Pacers on the moneyline NBA odds to win at Toronto, the Raptors 21-2 fourth quarter run was probably a pretty miserable experience, as Indiana’s 13 point lead turned into a six point deficit. As they’ve pointed out several times on SportsBIT in the last week, the problem wasn’t Indiana superstar Paul George, who’s enjoying a tremendous series. Rather, it was the supporting cast, who combined to make only 22 of their 54 shot attempts – that run started and Toronto got the early fourth quarter momentum with George sitting on the bench, getting a much needed breather.

But the real dichotomy between Pacers moneyline bettors and Pacers ‘plus the points’ bettors came on the final possession, when Solomon Hill hit what appeared to be the game tying shot at the buzzer. If you had Indiana plus the points, you were likely screaming at the TV ‘wave it off, wave it off’. If you had the Pacers on the moneyline, you were desperate for that shot to count, keeping you ‘live’ in overtime. Two groups of bettors who backed the same team were hoping for opposite outcomes at the end of a tight game, just one more fascinating element of the sportsbetting universe.
