NBA Odds Preview: Weekend Wagering

The Oklahoma City Thunder finished just short in the NBA Finals last season, which made it all the more surprising when the front office broke up the core by trading James Harden away to the Houston Rockets.


Harden might have given general manager Sam Presti some seller’s remorse with his performance on Wednesday night. Harden flourished in his first game as a full-time starter racking up 37 points, six rebounds, and 12 assists. Along with fellow newcomers Jeremy Lin and Omer Asik, Harden makes up an exciting young core that suddenly makes the Rockets look very relevant.

NFL Odds: Week 9 NFL Line Moves

The NFL lines for Week 9 of the season have been kept to a minimum so far this week at the sportsbooks, with only the Cardinals vs. Packers and Cowboys vs. Falcons matchups seeing moves of a point or more.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers opened as 11.5-point favorites at home against the struggling Cardinals for Sunday at 5Dimes, but that line has moved to -12.5 over the past few days. Green Bay is 5-3 SU and 3-5 ATS on the season, while Arizona will enter the contest at 4-4 SU and 3-4-1 ATS - and on a four-game skid.
