NBA – TRENDS OF THE DAY
Porzingis tore his ACL last night, Orlando tore Cleveland apart and the Warriors players wanted to tear apart the refereeing trio. Everybody has their problems and comparing those is no fun in the betting business. Still, as much as teams getting hot is telling, the cold trends can also be profitable, sometimes even more. We take our daily look at the best NBA betting trends to save you time and help you earn money. For the entire collection of today’s trends, visit our NBA Top Trends page.
Six games are on the plate, none bigger than Minnesota at Cleveland, which has the coming vs. history feeling. The other games on the schedule are Brooklyn at Detroit, Houston at Miami, Utah at Memphis, Indiana at New Orleans and San Antonio at Phoenix.
- The Cavaliers are 1-9 ATS in their last 10 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
Bad Cleveland trends keep ranking high on our list almost regardless of the opposition. The Wolves are carrying 4-1 ATS recent record to the game, but their misery on the road is more telling – they’ve covered just twice in their past nine attempts. It’s going to be tough for the Cavs to turn their fortunes in this one, but the market is responding with major shifts, turning Minnesota to a favorite in Ohio. Books are trying to shut the window.
- The Heat are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games vs. a team with a winning straight up record.
Spoelstra’s got to be one of the premier candidates for the Coach of the Year award, having put an excellent team together, without really having any big stars. The lack of stars is probably the decider in this trend, as the Heat get underrated for it. The Rockets have no lack of them, but are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games on the road, proving that they can beat the odds even when the expectations are high. However, they don’t play as equally well on the second nights of the back-to-backs. They are 1-7 ATS in the last eight such games. Also, 4-9-1 ATS in the last 14 against the East and 2-6 ATS on the road against winning hosts don’t look great. Of course, neither does Miami’s 6-20-3 ATS track record at home.
- The Jazz are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
We really like what the Jazz have been doing lately, so the only reason to have them a bit lower on the list is because they face almost equally hot Grizzlies. The Jazz are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games and 6-0 ATS against the West. However, Grizzlies are 7-2-1 ATS at home and 4-0 ATS on the second night of the back-to-back set and the Jazz are 1-4 ATS in previous five meetings with the Grizz.
- Under is 10-2 in the Rockets last 11 overall.
Nothing changes even with the overs last night in Brooklyn. The Rockets are still 12-4-1 away from home in the last 17 and 6-2-1 below the lines on back-to-back nights. Under is 6-1 in the Heat last seven on one day rest, 6-2 in the last 8 overall and 4-1 against the West.
- Under is 10-1 in Cavaliers last 11 games playing on 0 days rest.
Under and the Cavs seem like an odd fit, so perhaps this trend has the biggest chance to go stealth on the market. The Wolves have been doing a good job defensively since the turn of the calendar year, and are 4-1 below the expected line in their last 5 games, and 4-0 against the East. Under is also 8-3 in their last 11 road games.
- Over is 4-0 in the Jazz last 4 overall.
The Jazz have been putting the ball through the hoop with amazing precision. 127.8 points in the last four games is not sustainable, but it’s a new, building trend that we simply could not ignore. Over is 6-2 in Grizzlies last 8 overall, 5-2 at home, and the last 4 times playing on 0 days rest. This matchup historically had low total points expectations, but the times have changed, and the market might not be ready to adjust to it just yet.
- Under is 6-2 in Suns last 8 home games.
The last, and the least, but still worth considering, is the minus point on the Suns v Spurs game. Under is much more prevalent, although not dominant on the Suns games. The are 13-6 in their last 19 against the West and 10-4 in previous 14 meetings with San Antonio, who had stayed below the line in four of the previous five road games. Over is 6-1 when Suns play on the back to back, and 5-2 in the Spurs last 7 overall but with no Booker and with the Spurs meaning business, we prefer the minus points.
