NBA Midweek Betting Trends

Bettors have quite a bit to contemplate before laying down a wager on the NBA action for Wednesday. There are 10 games on tap Wednesday, with three more on the Thursday docket.

Dallas is 4-2 SU and looks to go 3-0 on the road when they take on a Memphis team that has flourished since the return of big-time contributor Zach Randolph. Dirk Nowitzki and Jason Terry came through with some late-game heroics as the Mavs (2-4 ATS) pulled out an 89-87 win over Boston last time out.

Memphis, meanwhile, has gone 4-4 SU and 5-3 ATS thus far. Dallas games have gone UNDER in five of six contests – warranting a serious look for totals bettors.

After a successful run to the postseason last year, Charlotte will have to overcome an early-season slump as they look to deal the Raptors a sixth straight defeat. Toronto is a slight 1-point favorite heading into the contest at Bovada, and at 3-4 ATS the Raptors could be poised to cover the slight spread. With the history of high-scoring games between the two – four of the last five games having seen the total go OVER – it might be smart for totals bettors to make a play here.

Orlando is a team worth keeping a close eye on this season, as they have won four straight and have owned Utah (who they host on Wednesday) in the past. The Magic are only 2-4 ATS, but when facing the Jazz they are a respectable 6-3 ATS in their last nine.

Milwaukee is a 6.5-point underdog against the Hawks at Sportsbook.ag for Wednesday, and taking them to cover might be a solid wager with such a pointspread difference. The UNDER has sent totals bettors to the payout window six times in eight Milwaukee games this season.

Houston (1-5 SU, 3-3 ATS) has dominated Washington lately, going 5-0 SU and ATS. Bovada has Houston as 3-point road favorites - it’s almost a lock if you consider taking Houston to cover in Wednesday’s contest.

Boston will head south to play the new-look Miami Heat on Thursday on the hardwood. Boston won their earlier meeting 88-80. But you can bet the Heat's Big Three of James, Wade, and Bosh are starting to get used to each other – and this could be bad news for teams around the league. Boston has had good luck in covering the spread against Miami, having gone 5-1 ATS over their past six games.

The Los Angeles Lakers will be trying to run their record to a perfect 9-0 SU when they tip off against the 4-4 Denver Nuggets. Los Angeles (5-3 ATS) has looked like the championship team that they are – and they put up points at will. Take note that Los Angeles games have gone OVER five of eight times already this season.
