NBA Betting News and Notes
By Covers.com

Each week, we look back on the NBA betting scene and give you the best –and worst – basketball bets, as well as some spots to keep an eye on with the upcoming schedule.

For the week of Jan. 20-26.

Hottest ATS team

Washington Wizards (3-1 SU, 4-0 ATS)

The Wizards are on a red-hot 10-game cover streak. Washington has thrived since PG John Wall returned from injury and continues to defy oddsmakers as an underdog. The Wizards host the Kings Monday before heading out on a three-game road swing.

Coldest ATS team

Los Angeles Clippers (0-4 SU, 0-4 ATS)

The Clippers have been money for bettors all season long but they’re currently mired in a mid-season slump. Los Angeles has failed to cover in five straight games – four times as favorites. The Clippers host Portland Sunday and then head out on a season-long eight-game road trip beginning Wednesday in Minnesota.

Best over team

Milwaukee Bucks (2-1 SU, 3-0 over/under)

The Bucks have soared over the total in four consecutive games. Milwaukee’s offense has come alive during that stretch, averaging 109.2 points per game. The Bucks hit the court again Tuesday in Detroit before two tough contests against the Bulls and Knicks.

Best under team

New York Knicks (1-2 SU, 0-3 over/under)

The Knicks have gone low in five straight and six of their last seven games. New York is averaging just 84.6 points over the last three games – 11.5 points lower than its 96.1 season average. The Knicks kick off a five-game homestand beginning Sunday when Atlanta rolls into town.

Scouting the schedule:

The Philadelphia 76ers kicked off their season-long eight-game homestand with a win over the Knicks Saturday night. The Sixers are 16-6 O/U at the Wells Fargo Center.

The New Orleans Hornets play eight of their next nine games away from home, but that doesn't mean bettors should shy away from them. The Hornets boast an impressive 14-7 ATS mark on the road.
