NBA Orlando Return Odds & Preview

NBA Orlando Return Odds & Preview

The 2020 NBA season is set to return on July 30th from the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Orlando, FL. 5Dimes NBA oddsmakers have released the odds for the first THREE days of action. Keep reading for a preview of those games.

NBA Orlando Return Odds & Preview

July, 30, 2020

Utah Jazz vs. New Orleans Pelicans

Utah and New Orleans both went 5-5 over their last 10 games before the break, but the Jazz are the more mature and experienced team in this matchup. The difference in this restart opener could be defense where the Jazz have been pretty elite in limiting the opposition to 107.9 points while New Orleans allows 117.0 points per game. All eyes will be on Zion Williamson, but I think Donovan Mitchell will be the best player in this matchup.

LA Clippers vs. LA Lakers

The Lakers lead the Clippers in the West by 5½ games and LeBron James and company went a stellar 8-2 over their last 10 games before the suspension. Kawhi Leonard and the Clippers will be looking for revenge in the most anticipated matchup on the restart docket. The Clippers have taken two of three from the Lakers this season, but the ‘senior’ LA team won the last time these two met. Expect another knock-down, drag-out brawl in this huge meeting.

July, 31, 2020

Orlando Magic vs. Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn is a half-game up on Orlando in the Eastern Conference standings and they won three straight before the break while going 5-5- over their last 10 games. The Magic also won three straight before the hiatus while going 6-4 over their last 10. The Magic have also won both regular season meetings this season and Kyrie Irving is being questioned for his general lack of leadership – again.

Memphis Grizzlies vs. Portland Trail Blazers

Superstar rookie point guard Ja Morant will have his hands full against Portland Damian Lillard and this will be a great one-one-one matchup to watch. Memphis won the only head-to-head meetings 111-104 on February 12 and the Grizz are up 3.5 games on the inconsistent Blazers who have gone a dismal 11-23 on the road this season.

Phoenix Suns vs. Washington Wizards

Devin Booker and Bradley Beal will square off in a matchup featuring two of the best shooters in the league today. Phoenix has gone 13-17 on the road this season and are being outscored by 1.3 points per game. Washington has been awful in going a pitiful 8-24 on the road this season while being outscored by an average of 4.0 points per contest. John Wall won’t be suiting up for the remainder of the season (what’s new?), leaving Ish Smith and Shabazz Napier as Washington’s floor leaders.

Boston Celtics vs. Milwaukee Bucks

With 53 wins, Milwaukee has the best record in the league. The Bucks lead the league in scoring (118.6 ppg) and are are tied for the fifth best mark in points allowed (106.5 ppg). Boston is just three games behind Milwaukee in the standings and the C’s rank a stellar second in points allowed (106.8 ppg). These rivals have split two regular season contests with each winning on the road. Besides the Lakers vs. Clippers restart opener, this matchup will almost assuredly be the second-most watched matchup of the restart campaign.

Sacramento Kings vs. San Antonio Spurs

Sacramento is in seventh place in the Western Conference standings while San Antonio is in 11th place in the conference. Both teams in this matchup give up almost two points per game more than they average, but the Kings have been the better road team in going 14-19 away from home compared to San Antonio’s uninspiring 11-22 road mark. You know things have changed drastically when the once perennially-powerful Spurs are underdogs against the once, perennially awful Kings.

Houston Rockets vs. Dallas Mavericks

Houston is in sixth place in the Western Conference while Dallas is in seventh place, just 1.5 games behind the Rockets. Houston is second in scoring (118.1 ppg) thanks to the high-scoring ways of James Harden and Russell Westbrook, but Dallas puts up an impressive 116.4 points per contest. The Mavs limit the opposition to 110.3 points per game while the Rockets give up 114.4 points per game. Simply put, I wouldn’t expect a whole lot of defense to be played in this affair.

August 1, 2020

Miami Heat vs. Denver Nuggets

Jimmy Butler and the Miami Heat are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference and they’ve been one of the best home teams in the league in going 27-5 in South each this season. Unfortunately, Miami is also just 14-19 on the road. Nikola Jokic and the Nuggets are in third place in the west and the Nuggets have recorded winning records at home and on the road. Can Butler get the help he needs in order to get past a Denver team that has been knocking at the conference championship door out west for the last three seasons?

Utah Jazz vs. Oklahoma City Thunde

Utah is in fourth place out west, one game ahead of Chris Paul and the Thunder. While the Jazz are statistically better at both ends of the floor, these two conference rivals have split their two regular season dates with each team winning on the road. And speaking of being on the road, both of these title contenders have won an identical 20 games away from their comfy confines.

New Orleans Pelicans vs. LA Clippers

The Pelicans got the best of the championship-hopeful Clippers in their first meeting this season, but L.A. has won two straight against the young Pels. No matter what happens in their restart opener against the Lakers, I’ve got to believe that the loaded Clippers are looking at this game as a must-win kind of matchup, particularly seeing as how they allow eight fewer points per game defensively.

Philadelphia 76ers vs. Indiana Pacers

The 76ers and Pacers have identical 39-26 records heading into the restart, but Indy has won two straight in this rivalry, including a 115-97 blowout in the City of Brotherly Love on Dec. 31. Indy was heating up nicely before the hiatus by going 7-3 over their last 10 while Philly was struggling at the break by going 5-5 over their last 10.

LA Lakers vs. Toronto

The Lakers are on top out west, but the defending champion Raptors have nearly identical numbers at both ends of the floor while sitting in second place in the east. Toronto had won six of their last 10 games before the break and they took out LeBron James and company 113-104 at home in their only meeting this season back on November 10. While LA as gone an impressive 26-6 on the road this season, the Raptors aren’t far behind in going 23-9 away from home.

2020 Belmont Stakes Odds & Analysis

2020 Belmont Stakes Odds & Analysis

Horse racing is taking the spotlight this Father’s Day weekend with an exciting field of ten thoroughbreds run at the $1 million Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park.

Any other year the Triple Crown would already be in the history books. Due to the pandemic the Kentucky Derby has been moved to September 5th while the Preakness will take place on October 3rd. And the race that usually concludes the Triple Crown will be the first to take place this Saturday, June 20th.

Official Open Odds FOR/AGAINST winning the Belmont Stakes

Tap It To Win +650/-1000
Sole Volante +750/-1165
Max Player +2300/-4600
Modernist +3000/-7000
Farmington Road +2200/-4400
Fore Left +3000/-7000
Jungle Runner +6000/-15000
Tiz The Law -130/+110
Dr Post +650/-1000
Pneumatic +1700/-3400

The 2020 Belmont Stakes Field

1-Tap It To Win

The Mark Casse trained runner has come into his own. Tap It To Win will search for his third straight victory on Belmont Stakes Day. Race favorite Tiz The Law must pressure from the outset. If the Barclay Tagg runner doesn’t, Tap It To Win could roll to a front running score.

2-Sole Volante

With a record of 4-1-1 from 6 races, horseplayers must take Sole Volante seriously. The Krakontie sired colt should be closing fast.

3-Max Player

New York based trainer Linda Rice saddles the Grade 3 Withers winner. If Max Player gets the right trip, he could challenge for the top spot.

4-Modernist

This one appears a cut below Tap It To Win, Tiz The Law, and Sole Volante. The Risen Star winner just doesn’t seem fast enough to win the Belmont.

5-Farmington Road

Farmington Road finished fourth in the Arkansas Derby. That was chasing a fast pace. These are better than what he faced at Oaklawn Park. Don’t hold your breath for a superfecta finish.

6-Fore Left

Fore Left can hit the board at a square price. The Twirling Candy sired runner won the Grade 3 2000 Guineas at Meydan in his last.

7-Jungle Runner

It’s hard to understand why Steve Asmussen entered Jungle Runner. He’s lost his last 4 races by a combined 76 lengths.

8-Tiz The Law

Without a doubt, Tiz The Law will go off a solid favorite to win the 2020 Belmont Stakes. Sired by Constitution and from a Tiznow mare, Tiz The Law has dominated this year. He blew his competition away by 3 lengths in the Grade 3 Holy Bull. He won the Grade 4 Florida Derby by 4 lengths.

9-Dr. Post

The Todd Pletcher trained runner is one of the favorites. Dr. Post must improve off the Unbridled Stakes win. If he does, he could challenge Tiz The Law. He figures to get into the top 4 even if he doesn’t improve.

10-Pneumatic

Pneumatic ran one-paced in the Matt Winn. Like many others in this, he must improve to have any shot against Tiz The Law.

UFC 251 Fight Island Odds

UFC 251 Fight Island Odds

The UFC has been on fire since its return from the pandemic layoff. UFC 251 is set to raise the bar on Fight Island.

In the main event welterweight champion Kamaru Usman will defend his title against challenger Gilbert Burns. In the co-main event, Alexander Volkanovski takes on veteran Max Holloway in a rematch of their 2019 showdown. That’s not all. Also on fighting on Fight Island are Petr Yan and former 145-pound champion Jose Aldo who throw down for the vacant bantamweight title.

Last, but not least, the UFC 251 main card will also include a women’s strawweight rematch between former champions Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade, along with a second 115-pound bout between Paige VanZant and Amanda Ribas.

Now, let’s take a closer look at the top UFC 251 fights and the betting odds for the fighters.

UFC 251 Fight Island Odds

Kamaru Usman (16-1) vs. Gilbert Burns (19-3)

  • Gilbert Burns +180
  • Kamaru Usman -210

33-year-old Brazilian Gilbert Burns is back in the octagon less than a month after beating Tyron Woodley via unanimous decision in their Fight Night showdown on May 30. Burns is a pretty well-rounded fighter that has recorded six wins via KO, eight via submission and five by way of decision.

For his effort, Burns will face reigning welterweight champ Kamaru Usman who took out Colby Covington via fifth round TKO (punches) at UFC 245 in December. The 33-year-old Nigerian native has won 15 straight fights dating back to 2013 and is the clear-cut favorite in this affair, particularly seeing as how Burns is making an incredibly quick showing after going the distance just a few weeks ago.

Alexander Volkanovski vs. Max Holloway (21-9)

  • Max Holloway +150
  • Alexander Volkanovski -170

28-year-old Hawaiian Max Holloway is a former featherweight champ, but he’s dropped two of his last three fights including a unanimous decision loss against the 31-year-old Alexander Volkanovski at their UFC 245 championship bout in December. For his part, Volkanovski has won a phenomenal 18 consecutive fights, although he hasn’t faced many ‘big name’ fighters along the way. Holloway had successfully defended the featherweight championship three times and he put up a great effort in their first fight before failing to get the decision. Make no mistake about it, this pairing could easily be the most competitive fight on the entire UFC 251 card.

Petr Yan (14-1) vs. Jose Aldo (28-6)

  • Jose Aldo +250
  • Petr Yan -300

33-year-old Brazilian Jose Aldo will be relatively desperate to get back in the win column after losing his last two fights including a stunning split decision loss against the unheralded Marlon Morales at UFC 245 in December. Let it be known that Aldo has lost four of his last six fights overall with two of those defeats coming to Max Holloway via TKO’s (punches). 27-year-old Russian Petr Yan has won nine straight fights including a brutal third round KO (head kick) of former champion Urijah Faber at UFC 245 in December.

While Aldo is still in his prime, he also has the look of a fading fighter while Yan has been on fire for quite some time, although the list of fighters he’s faced over his last nine bouts doesn’t include any household names outside of the aging Faber.

Rose Namajunas (8-4) vs. Jessica Andrade (20-7)

  • Jessica Andrade +175
  • Rose Namajunas -200

28-year-old Brazilian Jessica Andrade had her four-fight winning streak snapped in her stunning first round TKO (knees and punches) loss to reigning strawweight champ Zhang Weili at their Fight Night matchup in August. The good news is that she beat Namajunas for the strawweight title in May of last year at UFC 237 with the win coming by way of a vicious KO (slam) in the second round.

27-year-old Milwaukee native Rose Namajunas had her three-fight winning streak snapped while losing the strawweight title against Andrade in her last bout. While Namajunas has age her on her side (slightly) she’s facing an uphill battle to take out an opponent that completely dominated her when they last met.

Paige VanZant (8-4) vs. Amanda Ribas (9-1)

  • Paige VanZant +310
  • Amanda Ribas -390

26-year-old Oregon native Paige VanZant got back in the win column by beating Rachael Ostovich via second round submission (armbar) at the UFC Fight Night matchup in January. VanZant had lost three of four before that bout and is really more well-known for her good looks than her actual fighting ability. 27-year-old Brazilian Amanda Ribas has won four straight bouts since suffering her only career loss back in 2015. Ribas took out Randa Markos at their UFC Fight Night matchup via unanimous decision in March. Along with the Holloway and Volkanovski matchup, this bout could be the most competitive on the entire UFC 251 card.

Updated 2020 NBA Championship Odds

Updated 2020 NBA Championship Odds

The NBA is coming back to finish the 2019-2020 season. The plan is to resume games on July 31 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex outside of Orlando, Florida. 22 teams will kick-start the end of the regular season before a full 16-team postseason with the Finals stretching into October.

Now let’s take a look at the opening NBA Championship betting odds after Adam Silver’s comeback plan reveal.

Updated 2020 NBA Championship Odds

Los Angeles Lakers +200

When we last saw LeBron and company, the Lakers (49-14) had the best record in the west and second-best record overall. L.A. won eight of 10 before the suspension. More importantly, the Lakers have been equally good at home (23-8) as on the road (26-6).

Milwaukee Bucks +275

Giannis Antetokounmpo and the Bucks have the best record in the league at 53-12 while ranking first in scoring (118.6 ppg) and fifth in points allowed (107.4 ppg). The Bucks rank first in team field goal percentage (47.7%) and second in defensive field goal percentage (41.3%).

Los Angeles Clippers +300

Kawhi Leonard, Paul George, and the rest of the loaded Clippers have the fourth-best record in the league (44-20), but it should be known that they’ve struggled away from home in going just 19-13 on the road. The question begs to be asked. Can the Clippers win away from their comfy confines of the Staples Center?

Boston Celtics +1200

The young and blossoming C’s have the fifth-best record in the league (43-21). They’ve recorded at least 20 wins at home and on the road, making them one of the more dangerous teams entering the re-start because of their ability to play at a high level away from T.D. Garden.

Toronto Raptors +1400

The Raptors (46-18) won four straight before the suspension, and the defending champs have the look of a dangerous underdog team that won’t beat themselves in the playoffs, especially following last season’s experience-building run to the title.

Houston Rockets +1500

Tied for the ninth-best record in the league (40-24) James Harden and the Rockets have been a mixed mess of explosive offense and non-existent defense as they rank a stellar second in scoring (118.1 ppg), but just 22nd in points allowed (114.4 ppg).

Denver Nuggets +2400

The Northwest-leading Nuggets (43-22) have an elite defense that ranks eighth in points allowed (107.4 ppg), but an offense that has put up a modest 110.4 points per contest to rank 20th in scoring. With all of their games now being played away from home, it’s important to not that Denver is just 18-14 on the road this season.

Philadelphia 76ers +2400

The Sixers have the 12th best record in the league and they’ve been the best home team in the league by far in going 29-2 in South Philly. However, with an uninspiring 10-24 road record, it remains to be seen hos Philadelphia will fare from here on out with every game being a literal neutral site affair.

Miami Heat +3300

Miami (41-24) has overachieved all season long, but they’ve gone just 14-19 on the road and they have a serious drop-off in talent once you get past Jimmy Butler and Bam Adebayo.

Dallas Mavericks +4000

The Mavs have the 13th best record in the league and a true superstar in forward Luka Doncic. The Mavs can score the ball with anyone in ranking sixth in scoring (116.4 ppg), but their 15th-ranked defense leaves a lot to be desired (110.3 ppg).

Utah Jazz +4000

The Jazz have the seventh-best record in the league (41-23) and they’re one of just seven teams that has won at least 20 games on the road. Utah has a top 10 defense, but they rank a modest 17th in scoring and just don’t have enough weapons at that end of the court outside of Donovan’ Spyda’ Mitchell (24.2 ppg).

Brooklyn Nets +5000

The Nets somehow have the 15th-best record in the league despite sitting at 30-34 entering the re-start. Still, this is a team that has gone an uninspiring 12-20 at home and has leadership problems, thanks to the quirky Kyrie Irving, who just isn’t very well-liked by his teammates.

Indiana Pacers +8000

With the 11th-best record in the league (39-26), the Pacers look dangerous seeing as how they’ve gone 21-11 at home and 18-15 on the road. The good news for Indy is that, the time off due to the pandemic pause could see Victor Oladipo return closer to the all-star level he was playing at before suffering a horrific leg injury over a year ago.

New Orleans Pelicans +9000

The Pelicans have the 18th-best record in the league (28-36) but they will enter the re-start as one of the most dangerous teams around seeing as how the young Pels picked up their play in a big way after getting superstar rookie Zion Williamson on the court after a lengthy absence to start the season.

Oklahoma City Thunder +9000

The Thunder have the ninth-best record in the league (40-24) thanks to their ability to win at home (20-13) and on the road (20-11). With a bunch of proven veterans (Chris Paul) and young stars like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Oklahoma City looks quite dangerous to me.

Portland Trailblazers +15000

The Blazers have a losing record (29-37), but this is also a veteran-laden team with one true superstar in Damian Lillard, and another all-star caliber performer in C.J. McCollum.

Unfortunately, Portland is just 11-23 on the road and that just doesn’t bode well heading into the post pandemic return.

Memphis Grizzlies +17500

Memphis has the 14th-best record in the league (32-33), but they young Grizz have recorded a winning record at home (18-15) and a decent 14-18 mark on the road. More importantly, Memphis has a legitimate star in point guard Ja Morant (17.6 ppg, 6.9 apg) that has absolutely no fear of anyone!

Orlando Magic +17500

Orlando has the 16th-best record in the league (30-35), but they’ve gone just 14-20 on the road and a modest 16-15 at home. The Magic also don’t have a true superstar to turn to in the clutch.

San Antonio Spurs +17500

The Spurs have the 20th-best record in the league (27-36), but they’re an uninspiring 11-22 on the road and has just one player (DeMar DeRozan) averaging over 20 points per game.

Phoenix Suns +20000

The Suns (26-39) have one of the game’s best scorers in shooting guard Devin Booker (26.1 ppg), but the young Suns have also recorded losing records at home (13-22) and on the road (13-17).

Sacramento Kings +25000

The Kings have some nice young talent, but they also have just the 19th-best record in the league (28-36) by going 14-17 at home and 14-19 on the road.

Washington Wizards +30000

The Wizards have the 22nd-best record in the league (24-40) and they shouldn’t even be sniffing a playoff berth, seeing as how they’ve gone an awful 8-24 on the road this season.

Still, commissioner Gary Bettman admitted that there is no guarantee that the season will resume, even in its new format, which gives 24 teams a shot at hoisting the Stanley Cup trophy instead of the usual 16. According to Bettman, the NHL and the NHL Players’ Association still need to iron out safety and health protocols, along with other issues, including where the games will be held.

Under the new format, the top four seeds in each conference, Boston, Tampa Bay, Washington and Philadelphia in the East and St. Louis, Colorado, Vegas and Dallas in the West — will square off in a pair of separate round-robin tournaments to determine seeding. The remaining 12 teams in each conference will be seeded by percentage points in order to play a best-of-five series. Here’s a look at each matchup by conference.

Eastern Conference

No. 1 Boston Bruins vs. No. 4 Philadelphia Flyers

With 44 victories, the Bruins have the most wins in all of hockey. Boston has won an identical 22 games at home and on the road. The Flyers were one of the hottest teams in all of hockey when the season was suspended, having won 14 of their final 17 games just prior to the break.

No. 2 Tampa Bay Lightning vs. No. 3 Washington Capitals

Prior to the break, the Lightning (43-21-5-1) were nipping at Boston’s heels for the top seed in the East, with 43 wins.

The Capitals (41-20-5-30) are one of the few teams in all of hockey with a winning record both, at home and on the road.

The Penguins (40-23-6-0) were just one victory behind both, Philly and Washington at the break. The Canadiens (31-31-8-1) might be in the playoffs, but they have a losing record at home (14-17-6).

Western Conference

The defending champion Blues have gone an insane 23-7-3-2 at home this season while ranking fifth in goals allowed (2.7 gpg). The Stars have recorded a winning record at home and on the road, mostly because they rank a phenomenal second in goals allowed (2.5 gpg).

No. 2 Colorado Avalanche vs. No. 3 Vegas Golden Knights

The Avalanche are tied with St. Louis for a conference-best 42 wins at the break. Colorado ranks a stupendous fourth in scoring (3.4 gpg) and sixth in goals allowed (2.7 gpg). Vegas got hot just before the break, winning eight of their last 10 prior to the suspension. The Knights rank an identical 13th in scoring (3.2 gpg) and goals allowed (2.9 gpg).

West Qualifying Round

No. 5 Edmonton Oilers -150 vs. No. 12 Chicago Blackhawks +130

The Oilers (37-25-7-2) are tied for the fourth most wins in the western Conference, mostly because they rank first on power play (29.5 %) and second in penalty killing (84.4%). The Blackhawks (32-30-4-4) were last in the Central Division, but reached the playoffs despite ranking a modest 18th in scoring (2.0 gpg) and 16th in goals allowed (3.1 gpg).

No. 6 Nashville Predators -135 vs. No. 11 Arizona Coyotes +115

No. 8 Calgary Flames -125 vs. No. 9 Winnipeg Jets +105

The Flames (36-27-6-1) are one of just six teams with 20 or more road wins despite ranking an uninspiring 20th in scoring (2.9 gpg) and 17th in goals allowed (3.1 gpg). The Jets (37-28-4-2) are ranked an encouraging 10th in goals allowed (2.8 gpg).

The new playoff format leaves Buffalo, New Jersey, Anaheim, Los Angeles, San Jose, Ottawa and Detroit on the outside looking in.
