Jan 24, 2013 |
We rummaged through our stats to uncover some interesting NBA trends to assist you with your capping of the hard court.

Here are seven NBA trends for bettors to consider:

Toronto Raptors

The Raptors took the Heat to overtime Wednesday night and put up 116 points in the loss. Toronto has now played over the total in six straight games. The Raps make the short trip to Orlando to take on the Magic, who have also been an excellent over play, Thursday night.

Indiana Pacers

The Pacers allowed an opponent to score 100 points for the first time in 13 games in Wednesday’s loss to the Blazers. But Indiana only put up 80 points in the contest to help bettors cash in on another under play. The Pacers have gone low in 11 of their last 13 games and visit Utah Saturday.

Orlando Magic

The Magic are 13-1-1 O/U in their last 15 games, earning a push for bettors Tuesday at Detroit. Orlando is now 22-15-2 O/U heading into its matchup with Toronto Thursday.

Washington Wizards

The Wizards are currently the hottest bet in the Association with an eight-game cover streak. Washington covered Wednesday night at Utah and hosts
Minnesota Friday night.

Golden State Warriors

The Warriors have put together a string of four consecutive covers. What makes the run more impressive is three of those covers were against top-notch opponents (Spurs, Clippers, Thunder). Golden State visits Chicago Friday.

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavs are currently the best bet in the West, covering in seven straight games. They host the high-powered Spurs Friday.

Houston Rockets

The Rockets blew another cover Wednesday night in a loss to Denver. Houston has failed to cover in nine straight games heading into Friday’s date with the Hornets in New Orleans.
