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 Nov. 18-24

Hottest ATS - Portland Trailblazers (4-0 SU, 3-1 ATS)

The Blazers continued to take the league by storm this week, extending their winning streak to 10-straight games, which included 4-0 on a four game East coast road trip. The Blazers are not only the hottest team against the spread this week, but they now have the second-best record ATS in the NBA at 10-4. LaMarcus Aldridge and Damian Lillard have been unstoppable for the Blazers during this run, Aldridge is scoring 22.3 points and 9.6 rebounds per game while Lillard is scoring 19.9 ppg to go along with 6.1 assists. The Blazers take on the slumping New York Knicks at home, before a short two-game road trip at Phoenix and the L.A. Lakers.

Coldest ATS - Brooklyn Nets (0-4 SU, 0-4 ATS)

The Nets have now lost five games in a row dating back to Nov. 16. and now sit 3-10 SU for the season. This is not the season the Nets envisioned after acquiring Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce from the Boston Celtics in the offseason. The Nets rank 22nd in the league in scoring at 95.4 points per game and are 24th in points against at 103.0 ppg. This week, with both Brook Lopez and Deron Williams nursing ankle injuries, the Nets take on the surprisingly Atlantic division leading Toronto Raptors, the L.A. Lakers, Houston and Memphis.

Best Over play - San Antonio Spurs (3-0 SU, 3-0 O/U)

Last week's best Under play, pulled the old switch-a-roo on us and became this weeks best over play. The Spurs extended their own winning streak to 10 games, not just by playing their usual style of tenacious defense and efficient offense, they are also scoring at a very high clip. During their current streak the Spurs have scored more than 100 points six times and are shooting a ridiculous 49.3 percent from the field in that span. The Spurs take on New Orleans at before a big matchup against Western Conference contenders Oklahoma City. They close out the week at Orlando and at home versus Houston.

Best Under play - Washington Wizards (3-1 SU, 0-4 O/U)

After starting the season with two wins in their first nine games the Wizards have turned things around of late, thanks in large part to point guard John Wall turning up his game. In the past four-game stretch, Wall has averaged 24.3 points and 8.5 assists per game, but more importantly the Wizards playing much better defense. They are only giving up 94 points points per game in their past four compared to 104.6 in their previous nine. The week the Wizards take on the Lakers at home before a quick two-game Midwest road trip in Milwaukee and Indiana before ending the week back at home versus Atlanta.

Surveying the schedule:

The Chicago Bulls will have to soldier on through the remainder of the infamous Circus trip without the aid of former MVP Derrick Rose. Rose is out indefinitely with a torn meniscus in his right knee which he suffered Friday night at Portland. The Bulls started the extended road trip last Monday at Denver and still have visits at the L.A. Clippers, Utah, Detroit and Cleveland before returning home on Dec. 2.
