NBA Team Focus: 76ers are Improving

For the last number of years, the Philadelphia 76ers have been the laughingstock of the NBA. To be completely honest with you, it’s warranted. Case in point: Philly entered the 2015-16 campaign coming off back-to-back seasons where they failed to eclipse 20 wins.

Streaking Raps are the Hottest NBA Bet

Robin Lopez DeMar DeRozan

Have you paid attention to the Toronto Raptors as of late? If not, it’s about time you did. The Raps are the hottest team in the NBA on the floor and at the betting window, as the Dinos have won nine straight games while covering the spread in eight of those contests. Canada’s lone basketball club will have an opportunity to set a franchise record for wins tonight when they welcome the New York Knicks to the Air Canada Centre.

Shark Bites
  • The Knicks are 0-4 SU in their last four games on the road.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Raptors' last seven games.
  • The Knicks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against their division.

The Dinos are hitting their stride at the right time but could be without All-Star point guard Kyle Lowry for the matchup. Lowry, who is officially listed as questionable, left the game late in the fourth quarter of Tuesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards with a hand injury after getting tangled up with Marcin Gortat. Backup guard Cory Joseph is a solid replacement if Lowry does miss the game, however the Dinos will be hard pressed to replace Lowry’s 20.9 points, 6.4 assists and 2.2 steals per game.

The Knicks have had the edge in this series, however. New York has covered the spread in six of their last seven meetings with the Raptors. The OVER has also paid out in each of the previous four contests between the Eastern Conference clubs.

Bulls are Ice-Cold Against the Spread

Jimmy Butler D'Angelo Russell

Thursday night’s Chicago Bulls-Los Angeles Lakers tilt wouldn’t normally be classified as can’t-miss television, but the TNT crew will be at STAPLES Center to nationally televise the contest regardless. Neither side has been setting the world on fire recently, however bettors would be wise to be wary of the Bulls. Chicago is a measly 2-8 ATS in its last 10 games, making them the third worst spread bet in the Association (just ahead of the Oklahoma City Thunder and Phoenix Suns).

Shark Bites
  • The Lakers are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
  • The Lakers are 0-7 SU in their last seven games.
  • The Bulls are 3-1 SU in their last four games after a loss.

Underdogs have a history of being a profitable play when the Bulls and Lakers collide, as favored teams are 3-7 ATS in the last 10 matchups between the clubs.

When the Lakers have played in Tinsel Town lately, UNDER bettors have been reaping the rewards. The total has gone UNDER in 10 of the Lakers’ last 13 games at home.
