Here are the top sports betting trends for May 5:

NBA: Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks (8:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Atlanta against the spread against teams with a winning record. The Hawks are 25-11 (+12.9 units) this season.

The Hawks will take another crack at following this trend on Tuesday night after losing outright as a home favorite in Game 1. The Hawks have not played well in the postseason so far, but they were one of the most consistent teams in the NBA during the regular season. The Hawks are favored by 6.5 at most books right now, which seems like a high line given how they have played lately. That should be a good sign for bettors looking to take the Hawks.

MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at Milwaukee Brewers (8:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play against Milwaukee using the money line in all night games. The Brewers are 2-13 (-11.5 units) this season.

The Brewers defied this trend last night scoring late off of Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers bullpen thanks to some questionable managing from Don Mattingly. The Brewers have another tough task on Tuesday night against Zack Greinke. Matt Garza will go for the Brewers. The line is growing against the Brewers in this game, who are up to as high as +154 at some betting shops.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Golden State Warriors (10:30 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Memphis using the money against Pacific Division opponents. The Grizzlies are 27-10 (+18.05 units) over the last two seasons.

Memphis did not have much success in Game 1, but Mike Conley has a good chance of returning to the lineup for Game 2. The Grizzlies have fared well against west coast teams because of their strong defensive play. Most of the Pacific Division teams want to run and score points. That is usually a good matchup for the Grizzlies. A money line winner would pay out a handsome price on Tuesday night as the Grizzlies are a double-digit dog in Game 2.

MLB: Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox (7:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play against Boston using the money line in home games against a team with a winning record. The Red Sox are 15-35 (-26.25 units) over the last two seasons.

The Red Sox fell at home to the Tampa Bay Rays on Monday to drop a little more than a unit on this trend. Boston also lost Hanley Ramirez to a shoulder injury in this game, which is a big blow because he was one of the few Red Sox consistently hitting. Boston is a favorite once again with Rick Porcello against Drew Smyly, but money has come in against Boston so far.

MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros (8:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Houston on the money line in all games. The Astros are 18-8 (+11.32 units) this season.

Houston suffered a tough 2-1 defeat on Monday night as a -200 favorite at some books. Dallas Keuchel couldn’t hold his 1-0 lead and the Rangers eked out a victory. The Astros send Scott Feldman to the hill on Tuesday against Wandy Rodriguez. The Astros are in the -160 range for this matchup.

NHL: Anaheim Ducks at Calgary Flames (9:30 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Calgary using the money line in home games after a division game. The Flames are 16-3 (+13.2 units) this season.

The Flames are in a must-win situation as they trail 2-0 in their best-of-seven series against the Ducks. The Ducks are a perfect 6-0 in the postseason so far after a sweep of the Winnipeg Jets and two wins in this series. The Flames are in the playoffs because of how well they played against division foes. Anaheim is -130 road chalk in this game in one of the rare situations where we have seen road favorites in the NHL playoffs.

MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves (7:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play against Atlanta using the money line in home games on Tuesday. The Braves are 3-12 (-13.1 units) over the last two seasons.

The Braves dropped one to the Phillies on Monday night and send Shelby Miller to the mound against Chad Billingsley on Tuesday. Billingsley will be making his first start in over three years when he takes the mound in this one. As a result, Atlanta is favored in the -150 range.

MLB: Baltimore Orioles at New York Mets (7:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Baltimore using the money line in all night games. The Orioles are 79-47 (+37.05 units) over the last two seasons.

After a day off on Monday, the Orioles and Mets open up an interleague series at Citi Field. Bud Norris will toe the rubber for the Orioles against ageless wonder Bartolo Colon for the Mets. Colon is priced anywhere from -117 to -130 as the markets all have different numbers on this game. Colon opened a -125 favorite.

MLB: Cleveland Indians at Kansas City Royals (8:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play on Kansas City using the money line at home when priced from +100 to -125. The Royals are 25-8 (+15.6 units) over the last two seasons.

The Indians offense got back on track over the weekend against the Toronto Blue Jays, but they face another left hander on Tuesday in the form of Jason Vargas. Danny Salazar will take the hill for the Tribe. The Royals are a slight favorite at home, though they are as high as -120 at some betting outlets.

NBA: Memphis Grizzlies at Golden State Warriors (10:30 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play under in Memphis games against good offensive teams scoring 99 or more points per game in the second half of the season. The under is 23-8 (+14.2 units) this season.

The Grizzlies like to slow the game down and play in a controlled atmosphere. That’s the exact opposite of what Golden State wants to do. The Warriors won Game 1 comfortably and the total on this game is climbing from 194.5 to 196.5 with no signs of slowing down. Those that want to follow this trend can take a good number as it keeps going up.

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Minnesota Twins (8:10 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play over in Oakland games. The over is 20-6 (+14.25 units) this season.

Another day, another over for the Athletics in their 8-7 loss to the Twins on Monday night. Both of these offenses are underrated by the oddsmakers, so the over should come as no surprise. Tuesday’s matchup between Jesse Chavez and Trevor May has a total of 8.5.

NBA: Washington Wizards at Atlanta Hawks (8:00 p.m. ET)

Trend: Play under in Atlanta home playoff games. The under is 34-12 (+20.8 units) since 1992.

Game 1 went against this trend as the total of 202 sailed over the 197.5 line. Game 2 is lined at 198 and the Hawks need to contain John Wall and Bradley Beal if they want to be able to even up the series. This is a relatively small sample size over a large period of time, but the results are significant.
