As The NY Times reports, last night Atlanta defeated Washington. I lost my bet and in order to close the month with a good balance I stop placing bets till June. Anyway, I will go following the nba playoffs in this blog.
Atlanta 94, Washington 91 lost -2.00 units for me. My betting activity is closed for May, a month I close with a positive balance.

You know my rules: the most important thing is the monthly balance. Till now I have a 4-2 record in May with a +24.31% ROI. I want to close the month with a positive balance, so today I don’t bet more than a stake 2/10 and this will be my last bet of May if I lose. Anyway, I am confident I will win.

Boys and girls, thank you for following Cigarafterten, the blog that helps you to win money betting on NBA games. So, what’s about the playoff run? Lets check!
In EASTERN CONFERENCE Miami, New York, Indiana, Brooklyn, Atlanta and Chicago have secured a playoff berth. Boston and Milwaukee are close to have their post season ticket, too. Anyway, look at Philadelphia: 3 games won for them and not so far from Milwaukee.
In WESTERN CONFERENCE five teams already secured their playoff berth: San Antonio, Oklahoma City, Denver, LA Clippers and Memphis. Now there are five teams fighting for the other three spots. One the teams involved in the final rush is Utah. Go Jazz!
Meanwhile the question is: are the Kings set to move from Sacramento to Seattle? The Sacramento Bee has the answer.
There are 6 NBA games are scheduled for today. Monday, December 10, 2012:
Philadelphia – Detroit
Charlotte – Golden State
Miami – Atlanta
Houston – San Antonio

MIAMI HEAT vs ATLANTA HAWKS
American Arlines Arena, Miami, FL, USA
The 1st team vs the 2nd team of the Southeast Division. Miami (13-5) has won four straight over Atlanta, including a 95-89 road victory Nov. 9, as NBA.com remember us. I also like to underline that he Heat are 9-1 at home this season.
The Hawks (12-5) have a 5-2 road record. I back Miami.
Miami – Atlanta: Miami @ 1.30 stake 10/100
Miami – Atlanta 101 – 92
♦ +3.00 units ♦
This is the 2nd bet won in a row for me.

Good morning World. Let’s forget Euroleague and Italian Serie A and go back to see what’s happening in the NBA.
In EASTERN CONFERENCE New York Knicks (8-1) are still the best team, followed by Miami Heat (8-3). Are you ready to see the duel New York Miami till the end of the regular season? I am not, as I look at the interesting Philadelphia 76ers (7-4) with 3 win in a row.
In WESTERN CONFERENCE we find Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers, both with a good 8-2 record, leading the group. My Utah Jazz have registered a 6-6, would it be enough for a playoff place? We will see.
Anyway, for Wednesday 21 there are 14 games scheduled in NBA:
Charlotte vs Toronto
Orlando vs Detroit
Cleveland vs Philadelphia
Indiana vs New Orleans
Boston vs San Antonio
Atlanta vs Washington
Miami vs Milwaukee
Oklahoma City vs LA Clippers
Houston vs Chicago
Minnesota vs Denver
Dallas vs New York
Phoenix vs Portland
Sacramento vs LA Lakers
Golden State vs Brooklyn
See you later for my betting tips.
There are 8 NBA games scheduled for tonight, but my favourite bookmaker offers odds only for 6 games. Stop trying to understand how things work in Italy and let’s think about betting: I choose Atlanta @ Portland for my first bet of the week.

PORTLAND TRAIL BLAZERS vs ATLANTA HAWKS
The Trail Blazers (2-4) are the worst team in the Northwest Division with a bad 1-2 home record and 3 consecutive games lost. Their problem is simple to understand: they are one of the worse defensive teams in the league. Usually teams playing against Portland score more than 100 points!
The Hawks (2-3) play the second game of a four-game West Coast road trip that began Sunday with 89-76 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers.
My bookmaker sees Portland as favourite tonight, I have a different opinion. I back Atlanta not because the Hawks are strong, but because the Trail Blazers are weak! Anyway, stake 4/100 is enough for this game.
Atlanta @ 2.08
Portland – Atlanta 87 – 95
♦ +4.32 units ♦
Nothing better that drinking an Italian coffee while reading the match report published by The New York Times.

The Clippers (23-17) lost their third straight at Staples Center with a 94-85 defeat to Boston on Monday. I know, as I bet on Clippers win! After winning 10 of their first 12 at home, they’ve no lost 5 out of 7. Tonight they must win. I bet on Clippers’ pride.
The Hawks (24-18) have a 12-12 record on the road. By the way, today I bet only stake 2/100 for each bet as I have already lost 20 units this week!
Clippers @ 1.36
Under 185.5 @ 1.87
RESULT: Clippers – Hawks 96-82

The LA Lakers (16-12) have Steve Blake questionable for this match. Los Angeles is a very good team at home (11-2) and the early money from the NBA bettors has landed on the side of the home team as the LA Lakers are now favored.
Atlanta (18-10) has the same performance playing home or away: 9-5. Tonight the Hawks are set to be without Jason Collins, injured. Reading some previews all around the web, it seems the Lakers are set to win the match, anyway, I want to bet on the Hawks. I like them because they have the NBA’s best road defense
Atlanta (+5.5) @ 1.87
and ………surprise!!! …………..I also have an under/over bet for this match:
Under 180.5 @ 1.76
RESULT: LA Lakers – Atlanta 86-78
♦ spread line bet: lost (- 10.00 units)
♦ under/over bet: won (+ 7.60 units)
