Raptors Aim for 12 in a Row vs Nuggets

The Toronto Raptors are the hottest team in the NBA and will be looking to extend their franchise best winning streak to 12 when they tangle with the Denver Nuggets in Colorado on Monday. Led by the dynamic backcourt duo of All-Stars Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan, the Raps are 8-3 ATS during the streak but have failed to cover the spread in their last two matchups against New York and Detroit. With a win tonight, the Dinos can establish the longest winning streak in Toronto pro sports history.

Shark Bites
  • The Nuggets are 5-2 SU and 7-0 ATS in their last seven games after a loss.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Raptors' last nine games on the road.
  • The Raptors are 6-17 SU in their last 23 games against the Nuggets.

Despite floundering in the basement of the Western Conference, the Nuggets have quietly become a very solid bet as of late. Denver, who opened as 5-point underdogs, are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 affairs. Mike Malone’s crew are 25-21-2 ATS on the season when tabbed as dogs.

Here’s another trend that will appeal to Nuggets bettors: in the last eight matchups between these clubs, underdogs are 7-1 ATS. Denver (18-30 SU) won’t be competing for a playoff spot this season, but they are a team to watch when it comes to seeking underdog value over the second half of the NBA campaign.

Magic Visit Spurs to Start New Month

Victor Oladipo Tony Parker Orlando Magic San Antonio Spurs NBA

The Orlando Magic, as well as dedicated Magic backers, will be eager to move on to a new month as the team produced woeful 2-12 SU and 3-11 ATS records in January. Their first challenge in February is not an ideal one, however, as they visit the San Antonio Spurs Monday evening.

Shark Bites
  • OVER is 4-1 in the Spurs’ last five games.
  • The Magic are 2-6 ATS in their last eight games versus the Spurs.
  • The Magic are 0-4 ATS in their last four road games.

The Magic’s blistering start to the season seems like a distant memory after their horrific month. Orlando, currently 16-point road dogs at Bovada for Monday’s meeting, was the hottest wager in the league to start the campaign, going 7-0 ATS (3-4 SU), and head into Monday’s contest with a 25-21 ATS mark season to date. They did conclude the month on a high note, defeating the Boston Celtics 119-114 and covering as 4-point dogs Sunday.

The Spurs head into Monday’s contest somewhat chilly SU and ATS. They are coming off a 117-103 loss at the Cleveland Cavaliers in their last effort and have lost two of their last three games SU and three of their last four ATS. Granted, the two SU losses came against the Cavs and Golden State Warriors, but it’s the first time all season that the Spurs have lost two games in a three game stretch.

Cavs are an Unreliable Bet vs Pacers

The Cleveland Cavaliers are turning the corner under newly appointed head coach Tyronne Lue, however tonight they’ll be tasked with covering the spread against a team that’s traditionally given them fits: the Indiana Pacers. Cleveland is 0-4 ATS in its last four against Indy.

Shark Bites
  • The Pacers are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Cavaliers are 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their last eight games after winning as an underdog.
  • The Cavaliers are 5-17 SU in their last 22 games against the Pacers.

On January 23, Lue told reporters his team was out of shape after a sloppy loss to the Chicago Bulls in his debut. Since then, the wine and gold have rattled off four straight while averaging 115 points per game, with a 117-103 victory over Western Conference heavyweight San Antonio solidifying the belief that the Cavs look considerably better in the wake of the coaching change. The Cavs have covered in three straight heading into the tilt.

The Pacers have earned back-to-back wins after dropping six of their previous seven but haven’t done anything to inspire any confidence in their backers. Indiana has been one of the most inconsistent teams in the Association this season despite Paul George playing some of the best basketball of his life.

When the Cavs and Pacers collide, UNDER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank. The UNDER has paid out in 12 of the last 15 clashes between the Eastern Conference foes.

Warriors Escape Philly, Now Visit Knicks

Stephen Curry Warriors Kristaps Porzingis Knicks NBA

The Golden State Warriors escaped what would have been a humiliating loss when Harrison Barnes nailed a corner three-pointer to prevail 108-105 at the Philadelphia 76ers Saturday afternoon. Now the Warriors head to New York to visit a Knicks team that snapped a four-game losing streak with an 18-point victory over the Phoenix Suns in their last game.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 11-2 ATS in their last 13 games after an ATS defeat.
  • The Warriors are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games versus the Atlantic Division.
  • UNDER is 4-1 in the Knicks’ last five games.

The Warriors, currently 10-point road faves at online shop BetOnline, were able to extend their winning streak to six games (4-2 ATS) thanks to Barnes’ heroics, but didn’t come close to the 17-point spread they were favored by when lines closed. Golden State visits Madison Square Garden for the second of its three-game road trip and has proven profitable away from home, going 15-8-2 ATS on the road this season.

At 29-20 ATS (23-26 SU) on the season, the Knicks have been one of the best teams at the sportsbook to date. The aforementioned four-game skid has dropped them to ninth in the Eastern Conference, but had no issues in their blowout win over the hapless Suns Friday.

The Knicks have covered the number in three straight games heading into this one, but look for Steph Curry and Co. to come out and try to make a statement at The World’s Most Famous Arena after their near stumble at Philly.

No Blake Griffin, No Problem for Clippers

Jimmy Butler Chris Paul Bulls Clippers NBA

The Chicago Bulls continue their west coast road swing with a date at the Los Angeles Clippers, who continue to record wins without star forward Blake Griffin in the lineup.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
  • The Clippers are 9-2-1 ATS in their last 12 games versus the Eastern Conference.
  • OVER is 8-1 in the Bulls’ last nine games on the road.

The Bulls, presently 5.5-point road pups, play their second of a seven-game road trip Sunday afternoon and began the swing with a 114-91 win at the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night. The victory was their fourth in their previous five road games overall (3-2 ATS) and at 9-11 ATS to date, they are a better wager away from home than on their own floor (9-16 ATS).

The Clippers, who began the season with that poor (by their standards) 6-7 SU record, have really started to catch fire of late. They head into Sunday’s contest fourth in the Western Conference standings with a 31-16 SU record (22-23-2 ATS) and have won 14 of 17 games without Griffin, who remains sidelined four-to-six weeks with that fractured right hand.

The Clips have covered the spread in 12 of those games sans Blake, but failed to cash as 14-point favorites against the Lakers in their last games. Bettors should take note, however, as L.A. has gone 6-0 ATS in its last six games following an ATS loss in its previous contest.
