Home dogs had a rough week, but are still covering ATS at a 52.50% rate this season.
The Kings went 2-2 ATS this week and they’re coming off an upset win against the Mavs (110-106). Fox is going to miss 2+ weeks, but Bagley will be back soon. If they stay healthy they’ll be even better.
The Pacers went 2-2 ATS this week and they’re on an 8-2 run. Sabonis (18.4 PPG and 13.1 RPG) has had a great start to the season. The Pacers are going to be a top team in the East once Oladipo is back.
The Bucks needed a good week and they got it (3-0 ATS). MIL have a +13.6 average point differential, which ranks #1 in the league. They also lead the NBA in scoring (121 PPG) and rebounding (51.8 RPG).
The Knicks have the longest active losing streak at 9 games. The Knicks have failed to score 100+ points in 4 of their last 6 games. Until they put up more points (100.6 PPG - 30th), they’ll keep losing.
Portland went 1-3 (1-3 ATS) this week. The losses to the Clips and Lakers are understandable, but the loss to OKC (108-96) hurts, as Portland are trying to get back into a playoff position in the West.
Scott is one of our newest writer and handicapper here at ScoresAndStats.com, but he has been writing sports betting content for more than a decade online. His work has been featured on many websites.
Scott is a millennial (born in 1989) who grew up in Toronto, Canada and he has never left the big city. He grew up playing a few sports (hockey, soccer and baseball) when he was younger. His favorite sport was hockey and he played goalie. He still likes to get out to the rinks to play some pick-up with his buddies.
Growing up in Toronto, Scott is a huge fan of all Toronto teams.
He watches the Maple Leafs and Raptors religiously. Scott also enjoys watching the Blue Jays, Argonauts and TFC.
His best sports memory was when the Raptors were crowned the 2019 NBA Champions. Unfortunately, he’s still waiting for the Maple Leafs to win a Stanley Cup during his lifetime.
Scott may be a diehard fan of Toronto sports teams, but he loves watching all sports. He’s a huge UFC fan (look for his UFC betting articles for most events) and he’ll watch just about anything, including tennis, golf, soccer and cricket.
Scott is a numbers guy and he likes digging deep into the statistics when handicapping games. He also likes to identify value bets in markets most bettors overlook, including player/team props.
When he’s not handicapping and watching sports, he enjoys golfing in the warmer months. He also loves burgers and poutine. Not only is that his favorite meal, but he has tried over 100 burgers in Toronto and he’s constantly looking for the best new burgers in the city.
