Bank shots: NBA betting news and notes

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 February 24-March 3.

Hottest ATS


Milwaukee Bucks (3-0 SU, 3-0 ATS)


The Bucks reeled off three consecutive win and covers against the Mavericks, Rockets and Raptors last week. Milwaukee had just one win in its previous eight contests prior to the run. The Bucks host the Jazz Monday night before hitting the road for three games.

Coldest ATS

Toronto Raptors (0-4 SU, 0-4 ATS)


The Raptors have dropped four straight (0-4 ATS) after winning six of their previous seven contests. Rudy Gay, who is averaging over 21 points per game since being acquired by the Raptors, is dealing with back spasms and now Toronto plays three tough road games against the Warriors, Suns and Lakers.

Best over play

Sacramento Kings (1-3 SU, 4-0 over/under)

The Kings played over the total in every contest of their recent five-game road trip. Sacramento’s defense was a disgrace on the trip, allowing opponents to score an average of 120.8 points per game. The Kings return home for games with the Bobcats and over-friendly Nuggets this week.

Best under play

Dallas Mavericks (1-4 SU, 1-4 over/under)

The Mavericks have gone low in four of their last five games after posting a 11-3 O/U mark in their previous 14 contests. The Mavericks play the second half of a home-and-home with the Rockets on Wednesday.

Scouting the schedule:

-The Chicago Bulls are entering a very tough portion of their schedule. Chicago visits Indiana and San Antonio this week before heading home for a clash with Utah. The Bulls then travel west for three games against the Lakers, Kings and Warriors. Chicago has been a pretty good bet on the road (17-11 ATS) and a horrible bet at home (9-22 ATS).

-The Utah Jazz head east for a four-game road trip beginning Monday in Milwaukee. The Jazz have been fade material on the road (10-18-1 ATS) but a great play at home (18-12 ATS) this season. Utah will also visit Cleveland, Chicago and New York this week.

i totally hear ya with that Raptor beat in O.T. but i would have to put yesterday's Knicks +5 right up there with it - Jason Kidd decides to pass the ball to Lebron with next to no time left so LBJ can stuff it for the cover - brutal
