Here at Gamblers Palace, our NBA Power Rankings are going to differ just a bit from the run-of-the-mill rankings you see on other websites. While those power rankings approach NBA teams from a statistical standpoint, we focus on the good stuff…gambling.
NBA Power Rankings at Gamblers Palace are exactly what the gambler needs. We take into account all the normal power ranking components such as offensive and defensive efficiencies, injuries, strength of schedule, rivalries, home-court advantage and coaches, but we compile all of those into a edge for the handicapper.
You will see that our NBA Power Rankings focus on each team’s win-loss record against the spread. We highlight good spots in the coming week to possibly play, or fade, a particular team. Our writers will highlight basketball teams on the rise, and on the decline.
NBA Power Rankings are updated weekly so you’ll want to check back every Monday for fresh information on how to bet the NBA.
The Final Four has been logged in the 2019 NBA Playoffs. As you can see from the pointspread results of the four contenders, it’s been tough making many backing them at offshore sportsbooks throughout their journey to get to this point. That is unless you blindly bet Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Milwaukee Bucks in their nine played games. If you did, stop now and enjoy your winnings because it’s only going to get harder from here. Let’s take a look at how the remaining four teams stack up from a betting perspective with the conference finals here and the NBA finals right around the corner.
1: Milwaukee Bucks (8-1 ATS) Bucks’ supporters have only been forced to taste the bitterness of defeat once in the postseason. Let that statement simmer for a moment. Once! The Detroit Pistons didn’t offer up much of a fight. In fact, it can be argued Mike Budenholzer’s squad didn’t even break a sweat as they busted out the brooms and advanced to the semifinals. That’s where things got a bit interesting after Kyrie Irving and the Boston Celtics set what they hoped was the tone for the series by logging the shocking 112-90 outright win and cover as 8-point Game 1 underdogs. Milwaukee would have none of it however in winning four straight to punch their ticket to the Eastern Conference finals for the first time since 2000. Having covered 89 percent of their playoff games, the Bucks are sure to be popular sides in the matchup with Toronto.
2: Portland Trail Blazers (6-6 ATS) With their backs against the wall, the Trail Blazers responded in a big way by logging back-to-back wins and pointspread covers against the Nuggets to return to the Western Conference Finals for the first time in the 90s. Battling back from a near 20-point deficit in Game 7 at Denver was quite the sight to behold. I got me some Blazers on the readjusted live betting pointspread, but didn’t have the cojones to hit them on the money line. Portland went on to win and cover two of its three games since we last reported last week, but now faces a steep uphill climb against a Warriors club that looked just as dangerous in Game 6 without Kevin Durant as it did in the previous playoff games with him in the lineup. Portland had success against Golden State in the regular season, so it shouldn’t be a walk in the park for either side.
3: Toronto Raptors (6-6 ATS) Had things shook out just a bit differently, it’s highly likely I’m writing about the 76ers instead of the Raptors in this piece. But Kawhi Leonard hit the buzzer beater on Sunday to send his team to the conference finals. While it wasn’t as pretty as Michael Jordan’s Game 5 winner against the Cleveland Cavaliers from back in the day, the end result was exactly the same. The game winner sets Leonard up with a date with “The Greek Freak” and it should have many an NBA bettor looking forward to the matchup. However, it’s tough to get excited about backing the Dinos in any of the games considering they’ve only managed a .500 record versus the linemakers at the best sportsbooks in the playoffs, and only managed one cover through four regular season tries against Milwaukee.
4: Golden State Warriors (5-7 ATS) It’s certainly within the realm of possibility that both Durant and DeMarcus Cousins return to the active lineup at some point in this series. Even with both figured out for the time being, the Warriors still opened up -500 chalk to advance to the finals over the Trail Blazers and currently check in at -520 after overnight wagering took place at top rated sportsbooks. Though expected to win the series, will they cover the closing NBA odds more times than not? That my friend is the million dollar question only Biff’s Sports Almanac could offer up an answer for. My guess is they win some lose some which has been the exact case over the course of the 2018-19 regular season and playoffs. As it stands, the Dubs are still the cream of the NBA crop but picking the spots in which they succeed for NBA bettors has been and will forever be the ultimate challenge.
