Here you will find team updated betting trends that are pivotal before making your picks.


Team Listing in Alphabetical Order

Atlanta Hawks - (Updated January 7, 2024) - Atlanta currently owns the worst record Against The Spread in the NBA.

Boston Celtics - (Updated January 2, 2024) - We have the wrong team favored as our number comes in at Thunder 2.38.  But other components could be in play here to consider before placing that bet.

Brooklyn Nets - (Updated January 2, 2024) - Brooklyn has only won two games in their last ten.  Worse still, they've only covered the spread in one.

Charlotte Hornets

Chicago Bulls - (Updated January 8, 2024) - The Bulls are 8-2 over the last ten games versus Charlotte.

Cleveland Cavaliers - (Updated January 5, 2024) - Cleveland beat the Wizards by 39 points the other day and host them once again on Friday. 

Dallas Mavericks - (Updated January 9, 2024) - Doncic dominated the Grizzlies twice this season, he had 35 points and 12 assists in a win on the road, and 35 points and eight assists in the second game in Memphis.

Denver Nuggets - (Updated December 28, 2023) - Nikola Jokic leads the Nuggets scoring 16.0. Jokic finished December 22's game, a win against Brooklyn, with 31 points (12-of-17 FGs, 5-of-5 FTs), 11 rebounds, seven assists, two steals, two blocks, and two 3-pointers in 34 minutes.  On December 28 they hosted a Grizzlies team that has their best player back and is 4-0 since Ja Morant's return.  Nuggets were as high as a -9 favorite. Denver opened at -6.5.  Favorites in the 6 to 6.5 range had gone 29-9 Against The Spread over the last five weeks and 13-2 when there is an underlay.  We got a number of 11.03 with Morant mostly factored into the equation by now.

Detroit Pistons - (Updated December 28, 2023) - It is simply not prudent betting on the Pistons at this time as they had lost 27 straight and were about to lose their 28th (by a whole lot) in Boston Thursday night.  There are high school basketball teams that can beat this Pistons squad.  Perhaps US sports leagues should adopt relegation.

Golden State Warriors - (Updated December 25, 2023) - Golden State was on a five-game win streak coming into their Christmas Day game.  They have not played as well on the road.  Four of their last five road losses were by no more than 3 points however with another loss to the Clippers by 8. 

Houston Rockets - (Updated January 8, 2024) - Houston is winning just under 25% of their road games this season.

Indiana Pacers - (Updated January 17, 2024) - The Indiana Pacers have acquired All-Star forward Pascal Siakam in a three-team deal that sends Bruce Brown, Jordan Nwora and three first-round picks to the Toronto Raptors, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski on Wednesday.

Los Angeles Clippers

Los Angeles Lakers - (last updated January 5, 2024) - The Lakers are 7-3 against Memphis with the Grizzlies three wins at home (this one is on the road in LA).  We noticed a 3-point underlay in the 4.5 line.

Memphis Grizzlies - (last updated January 2, 2024) - Memphis is 10-0 against the Spurs but just 3-7 Against The Spread when using the current number of 10.

Miami Heat- (last updated January 8, 2023) - At home, Miami has beaten the Rockets in three of the last four meetings.  Houston will be without one of their top players.

Milwaukee Bucks - (last updated January 8, 2024) - The Bucks beat Utah by 26 points the last time they hosted the Jazz in last season.  Milwaukee has failed to cover in five straight games once this season and are on the verge of doing so again with this one.

Minnesota Timberwolves - (last updated January 9, 2024) - The Timberwolves come into Orlando having failed to cover in six of their last seven games and eight of their last ten.

New Orleans Pelicans - (last updated January 2, 2024) - Zion Williamson and Brandon Ingram have helped propel the Pelicans to ninth in the NBA in field goal percentage.

New York Knicks - (last updated December 25, 2023) - The Knicks have played lackluster basketball during the month of December, failing to win more than two games in a row and playing right at the .500 mark.

Oklahoma City Thunder - (last updated January 8, 2024) - We actually have the Thunder able to win by 13 points here and are not coming off a back-to-back or missing any players.

Orlando Magic - (last updated January 7, 2024) - Orlando is showing how good a team they are going to be in 2024 as they continue to play well despite injuries piling up.  A healthy Magic team will be a dangerous one. 

Philadelphia 76ers - (last Updated January 5, 2024) - Philadelphia scores the sixth most points and allows the fourth fewest.  They also have the second best free throwing in the NBA.

Phoenix Suns

Portland Trail Blazers

Sacramento Kings- (last Updated January 10, 2024) - The Kings face off against Charlotte in the second night of a back-to-backer.  Sacramento beat the Pistons last night but are yet to win two straight nights this season.

San Antonio Spurs

Toronto Raptors - (last Updated December 28, 2023) - Toronto sat among the bottom ten teams on the Sagarin Ratings.  No way could we justify betting them as a -7.5 favorite, on the road no less in Washington.  They managed to win by 30 points.

Utah Jazz - (last updated January 6, 2024) - A common theme with Utah is their tough time on the road, especially against teams with winning records.  Coming into January 6, the Jazz had lost by 7 or more points in all 13 games against teams with winning records on the road. 

Washington Wizards
