Prior to the start of the 2015-16 NBA Regular Season, the majority sportsbook reviews and online sportsbooks pegged last year’s NBA Finals participants – the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors – as the favorites to come out of their respective conferences. So far that prediction has held true, as the Cavs are alone in first place in the Eastern Conference while the Golden State Warriors are unbeaten and in sole possession of first place in the Western Conference.
But although these teams are both sitting atop the NBA Standings, they have fared much differently at the betting window. Golden State isn’t just a perfect 11-0 straight up, but their average ppg difference of +16.3 is easily the best in the league and has helped the Warriors jump out to a winning 7-4 ATS record.
The Warriors will be asked to cover even bigger pointspreads going forward and now it may be time to start to fade the Warriors – especially when they begin their seven-game road trip at the end of the month.
March Madness pools are a form of sports betting based on the annual NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Championship each spring in the United States.
The public's increasing interest in this event is fostered by March Madness pools, or brackets. A bracket is a form that can be completed on-line or printed out and completed by hand whereby the participant predicts the outcome of each game in the tournament.
His or her predictions are compared against others in the pool, and whoever has the best prognostication skills wins the contest.
The tournament takes place over three weekends starting soon after the middle of March.
