Good morning, dear fans, readers, visitors , punters and nice men and women from all around the world. It is sometimes sad, but not that sad that “King” football is occupying most of our time, thoughts and bets. There is a big “prince“, maybe the most delicate and attracting attention during the last 3 decades.
This “prince” is called basketball. Actually my great love to sports comes from basketball. It is in the details you see, the ball passed, stolen , rebounded or simply slam-dunked in the basket. It is the triumph of man will to fight the gravity and to do impossible things in such small pitch. Yes, this is not the first post about this magnificent game, but when the most important tournaments are coming in Europe ( Eurocup, Eurochallenge and Euroleague) in USA ( NBA an NCAA) , I feel obliged to say few words and to mention memorable plays bets.
Also I forgot to mention the title of Spain in European Championship , which has ended a week ago. Marc Gasol – when you mention this name, it explains everything. The same effect on the public was achieved when the names of Michael Jordan, Vlade Divac, Toni Kukoc, Kobe Bryant, Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Larry Bird and Majic Johnson were pronounced. Actually , the game of a strong team is dependable much from its leader( check the status , even in football of Barca and Real Madrid when Messi and Ronaldo are not playing). Most of the specialist were on the opinion that Serbia could take the title, Italy and Greece had strong teams also, but for the Spanish the main sentence were, that they are too old. I would say in simple words – “old but gold”. When you have the experience and you already had won everything , you have that little power that differs you from the others.
We are here gathered to take some value form sports we know and realize, when to place the correct bet, according to our bankroll. The first and most important thing, before you place a bet on this wonderful sports is to know the game and if you are watching and betting live to watch what the trainer is doing. To know who is the leader of the team, what type of defense they are playing is it zone defense or personal defense, to know who and when is shooting a lot and with what percentage from the 3 points line. You have to be a walking encyclopedia of numbers and stats. In every moment of the game to be in perfect awareness and confidence , if the odds you see on the screen of your favorite bookies are right , if not which outcome to take.
As it is game of points scored , the most reliable and valuable bets should have been made on Asian handicap and over/under lines for the separate parts of the game. The secret of understanding basketball is also to watch it every time you can. While you watch , you realize a lot of thing and you do learn to see many things behind the scenes.
As a conclusion, I would like to say that NBA will gain more and more spectators this year and the most important thing is that players from all around the world are entering the league every season. Lebron James will reach to the final with Cavaliers. In Euroleague my sympathy is on the side of the current champions – Real Madrid. In NCAA it is always hard to predict , but DUKE and Kansas do have always strong teams. Let’s see some matched going on and I will run into deep details and analysis further.
Wish you the best day , and f you have the chance to pass , pass the ball , maybe the one who will score will teach you how to be better than him in the future 🙂
