Here are the latest NBA betting trends: (Trends Through Games Played on December 1st, 2019)
• Favorites (Nov 25th-Dec 1st): 40-13 SU and 25-28 ATS (Season: 207-85 SU / 137-149-6 ATS) • Home Teams (Nov 25th-Dec 1st): 32-21 SU and 29-24 ATS (Season: 175-117 SU / 150-136-6 ATS) • Home Underdogs (Nov 25th-Dec 1st): 6-14 SU and 12-8 ATS (Season: 36-68 SU / 57-44-3 ATS) • Game Totals (Nov 25th-Dec 1st): 22 Overs and 30 Unders (Season: 139 Overs / 150 Unders)
Underdogs (149-137-6 / 52.10%) still have a slight edge over favorites this season.
The Pacers went 3-1 (3-1 ATS) and the lone loss was by just 3 points against the 76ers (119-116). They’ve been playing great defense (104.6 PPG - 7th) and Oladipo will be back at some point this month.
The Suns are scoring 114.7 PPG (6th), but they allow 112.9 PPG (19th). The team has allowed 116+ PPG in 5 of their last 6 games, which has resulted in a 1-4 record. The Suns are beginning to fall apart.
Houston had a quiet week, but they went 2-0 (2-0 ATS). They shredded the Hawks (158-111) and they are tied for first in scoring (120.3 PPG). HOU are also playing better defense lately (114.5 PPG - 23rd).
The Nets went 3-1 ATS this week with a tough schedule and without Irving. This is going to be the top team in the East next season with Durant, but they’ll struggle to play .500 basketball this season.
Injuries have depleted the Warriors roster. The only bright side is they’ve been able to get a look at some of the youngsters on the team and Paschall (17 PPG) looks like he’ll grow into a solid starter.
Orlando are holding onto the #8 seed in the East right now, but they’ve been terrible ATS. ORL score a league-worst 101 PPG, but they rank #2 in points allowed (101.9 PPG) due to playing at a slow pace.
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.
