NBA Restart 2019/20

As with all major sports, the NBA season was postponed amid the Covid-19 pandemic and on June 4th the NBA’s Board of Governors approved a competitive format for the comeback of the 2019-20 season. The remainder of the 2019/20 NBA season is to be played in a ‘bubble’ at a single-site campus at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida.

22 teams will take part in eight seeding matches to determine the 16 teams, eight from each conference as normal, to participate in the 2020 NBA playoffs. The 22 teams were decided upon by giving each of the 16 teams currently in a playoff spot an automatic berth, plus any team 6 games or fewer back from a playoff spot.

Each team will play their eight seeding matches and the seven teams from each conference with the best records (regular-season games and seeding games) will have clinched a playoff spot. The 8th spot in each conference may require a play-in tournament to fill. If the team with the eighth-best record is more than four games ahead of the ninth-best record, then no play-in match is necessary, If the gap is four or fewer, then the eighth and ninth-placed teams in the conference will play for the final spot.

NBA Restart Schedule 2019/20

The NBA Board of Governors has set the date of October 13th as the latest possible date for the conclusion of the 2019/20 NBA season in an attempt to reduce the impact on the following 2020/21 season. Working backward from that date, they have released a schedule including seeding matches, potential play in matches, and a traditional 16-team NBA playoff bracket. All of the key dates can be found below.

Key NBA Restart Schedule Dates

  • July 22-28 – Inter squad scrimmages will take place ahead of the restart with each team playing three scrimmage games.
  • July 30 – NBA 2019/20 season restart begins
  • July 30-Aug. 14 – Seeding matches take place 
  • Aug. 15-16 – Play in matches scheduled, should they be required.

The NBA went on a hiatus on March 11 due to the coronavirus. The NBA restart plan, including the date for the NBA playoffs 2020 were announced on June 4th, with 22-teams returning to play in a bubble, hosted at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Disney World Resort. Play resumed on  July 30th with each team playing 8 seeding games and potential play-in games thereafter, to determine the 8th seed from each conference. The NBA Playoffs are scheduled to begin on August 17th.

NBA Playoffs Tonight

Despite an unorthodox route to the pinnacle of the NBA season, the NBA playoffs will take shape in typical fashion, with games coming thick and fast, even with the one court set up at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at the Disney World Resort.

The NBA has made it clear that they want to finish the season as quickly as possible, so as not to disrupt next season any more than they have to. With that, we’ll see multiple NBA playoff games a day, and we’ll be on hand to cover each one of the games in the NBA playoffs tonight.

Our experts will look at the entire slate, each day of the NBA playoffs to bring you a full game preview and free NBA predictions for each of the NBA playoff games today.

Which Teams Are Participating In The 2019/20 NBA Restart

22 teams qualified to play in the NBA seeding games with a shot at making the NBA playoffs. Those in playoff spots at the time the season was suspended, along with any team 6 or fewer games behind a playoff spot earned a spot in the NBA restart. The 22 teams that met that criteria are as follows;

Eastern Conference
Milwaukee Bucks, Toronto Raptors, Boston Celtics, Miami Heat, Indiana Pacers, Philadelphia 76ers, Brooklyn Nets, Orlando Magic, Washington Wizards

Free NBA Picks Against The Spread and Expert NBA Predictions for Today’s Games.

The NBA is one of the few major North American sports to acknowledge that their games are wagered on – even partnering with MGM to be the official gaming partner of the league. This can only be considered as a good thing for NBA betting and professional basketball bettors. Much like hockey, there is no shortage of NBA predictions every single night from October to April and into the postseason.

Do You Have Any Expert NBA Picks Today?

We offer free expert NBA picks on every single day of the NBA season, even Christmas Day.  The NBA season is an 82-game grind but our experts analyze every game to help you make the best NBA bets daily.  Player matchups, rotations, injuries, travel schedules and referees, and many other factors are considered when finding the best daily NBA betting tips.

Free NBA Predictions Moneyline

The Moneyline simply means you pick a winner of the game. NBA Moneyline bets are most valuable when wagering on two evenly matched teams. If you’ve got a team like Golden State who wins 70+ of their 82 games in a season, it’s not far fetched for the Warriors Moneyline betting odds to be listed at -650 or more. On the flip side, bets against these upper-echelon teams is a great way to maximize profits when they lose.

Free NBA Picks Against the Spread

When you want to bet on an elite team but don’t want to risk $600 or more to win $100, our expert NBA picks against the spread are the way to go. NBA betting against the spread means you’re wagering not only on a team to win, but also to win by a certain amount of points. If we take our earlier example of Golden State being -650 on the Moneyline they will be around -10.5 against the spread. This means they have to win the game by 11 points or more for you to cash your ticket.

NBA picks against the spread are a great way to bet on underdogs too. Let’s say we go against the Golden State Warriors in the above example and we take the points. Our team can lose by 10 points or fewer points and we still win. This is where those ‘meaningless’ half-court shots at the buzzer turn from anguish into elation. They can also cause the upset and win the game outright.

Free NBA Picks Over Under

NBA over/under betting is arguably the most exhilarating of all the North American sports. On any given night in the NBA, you might see an 85-81 contest in one game compared to a 218-205 score in another. NBA totals picks can be legitimately won or lost with one bad – or great – quarter. A lot of bettors enjoy NBA over/under free picks because every single offensive possession counts and it makes the games that much more thrilling to watch.
