Midseason Online Betting NBA Power Rankings
Posted by: Anthony Yaylor
The online betting NBA season has officially reached its halfway point which can only mean two things; it’s time to double down at an NBA sportsbook and make up for any losses suffered during a wild NFL divisional round. To help bettors on that plight is a new and updated NBA power rankings. Let’s take a look.
1.Golden State Warriors
The Warriors have a difficult road ahead of them, having to face the reigning NBA champions and whatnot. But Golden State does have the advantage of enjoying home field advantage, an advantage they’ve been enjoying since last Thursday night when they delivered a Golden State routing to Detroit. The Warriors made sure to deliver a show to those betting on NBA games by delivering their ninth 40-point quarter of the season. Additionally, the Warriors are 8-0 when posting more than 40 in a quarter, 12-0 when they get 25 or more fast-break points, 13-0 when Draymond Green has a minimum of 10 assists, and 17-0 when the team drains at least 13 3-point attempts. Needless to say, the Warriors have more than enough talent to get through this rough patch in the schedule.
Although some sportsbook betting fans may have some complaints about the Cavs; such as their lack of success at Utah or their recent dip in the Cavs’ shooting percentage. There might be some truth in those objections, but Cleveland is still the most deserving team of the No. 2 spot. Right now coach Ty Lue’s squad is making 32.1% of their 3-point shots, the 3rd-worst percentage in the league for the month of January. However, having a 4-time NBA MVP assures that your team is still one of the best in the league.
James Harden continues to impress and the Rockets are going to need him to keep it up as they face one of the biggest online betting NBA weeks on their schedule. The Rockets will have to face No. 1 on this list Friday night when the Warriors come to town to try to avenge their double-overtime loss they suffered to the Rockets on December 1st. Interestingly enough, Houston (114.9) and Golden State (117.5) have the opportunity to become the first pair of teams to average more than 114 points per contest since the 1990-91 season, when 4 teams accomplished that task.
4.San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs were getting a ton of hype last week but failed to keep their momentum rolling. With a 4-3 record in January, the Spurs are starting to become desperate for a turnaround. However, since those three losses were by a combined total of 7 points, the online betting NBA community still has plenty of faith left in San Antonio. Hopefully they’ll be able to put on a show Saturday night when they face off against the Cavs at Cleveland.
With their win over the Boston Celtics the Raptors rose to the top spot in the Atlantic Divison. With DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry competing for the title of most valuable player on the Raptors, Toronto has been able to deliver a season most sportsbookr fans would consider surprising.
