NBA Injury Update : Rose 1/4

NBA Injury Update : Rose 1/4

Concerns about overworking himself has led HRWager to issue this NBA Injury update on Derrick Rose.  While Chicago is now Butler’s team, the former MVP still plays a pivotal part in their future plans.  Sitting out three games due to a tender hamstring, Derrick has now voiced his concerns about discomfort in his knee.  Let us sit down together at HRWager and see where this latest revelation will lead us in our basketball wagering for January.

NBA Injury Update : MRI Monday

NBA Injury update


Same right knee that has had two season ending injuries to it.  While panic is not running rife, an MRI was ordered so that the team can get in front of this right away.  What comes into question is how a 27 year old player can be overworked in the NBA?  Is this knowing your bodies limit after these devistating setbacks?  Or more of never being the player he once was and losing that fearlessness that made him such a tough player to cover?

Minutes Restriction

How it affects us is with the totals!  The Fred Hoiberg system is a stark departure from Tom’s overtly defensive style the Bulls had for years.  This and an orbital eye problem in pre season has seen Rose have some of his lowest point totals for his career.  With the linesmakers depending more on mathematical models, they are now in a quandry over Chicago.  Even if he can make it back for the next game against the Bucks, Rose will be on a minute restriction rotation for some time to come.

This week it would benefit handicappers to look on the low side for the Bulls.  Territory like this is new and the linesmakers have too many games to put out lines for both pro and college.  HRWager wishes you good fortune in this angle and we will see you next time to see how this is progressing.

NFL Playoff Schedule for Wild Card Round

Wild card round for the 2015 season has some surprises not only in the participants but the lines in the games as well.  Good Monday Morning and welcome to the HRWager Blog.  The very last game was necessary to determine who goes where in the NFC.  We a privy to an annual divisional matchup that has  surprise favorite. A rematch where a league power got their groove back.  All of this and much more in this edition of the HRW Blog.

Dalton Up in the Air

First up is the Kansas City Chiefs at Houston (+3) 4:25PM 1/9

Followed by the Steelers as the Bengals (+2 1/2)  8:15 PM

Logic would dictate the the winner of the AFC South would be a home dog against a wild card KC team that has won ten straight.  However, eyebrows were raised in granting the Steelers road favorite status against the Bengals.  This is their most complete team.  A very good offensive line should give AJ plenty of time to pick apart an average Steelers defense if Dalton can not go.  We advise to hit the Bengals now for 1/2 unit while this line stabilizes.

Seahawks Tidal Wave

The one game that has seen a flood of one sided action is Seattle at Minnesota in the early game.  This 1PM game has seen the – 3 1/2 road favorite balloon to – 5 1/2 in some markets.  Last but not least are the Packers (+1) at Washington.  How much was energy conservation and what was collapse of a Green Bay team that started 6-0?
