To put it lightly, the Brooklyn Nets have been the butt of many jokes in the NBA in recent memory.

Shortly after the franchise moved from New Jersey to Brooklyn, then-general manager Billy King pulled off what’s been deemed the worst NBA trade of all time: acquiring Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and D.J. White from the Boston Celtics in exchange for Gerald Wallace, Kris Humphries, MarShon Brooks, Kris Joseph, Keith Bogans and three first-round picks (2014, 2016 and 2018) as well as the right to swap first-round selections in 2017.

The Nets are 27-15-2 ATS this season when tabbed as underdogs.

The move, which essentially mortgaged Brooklyn’s future in favor of a single brief playoff appearance, left the Nets in turmoil for years. But a new regime led by general manager Sean Marks and head coach Kenny Atkinson is starting to change the culture in the Big Apple, and it’s showing at the betting window.



According to our NBA ATS standings, the Nets are the second-best spread bet in the Association this season at 32-21-2 ATS. The only team with a better record in that regard is, fittingly, the Celtics (33-20-2).

Of course, sharp hoops bettors have already taken note of Brooklyn’s immense underdog value. While they’ve been largely underwhelming as a moneyline play at 19-36 SU, the Nets are a fantastic 27-15-2 ATS when tabbed as dogs. Since the club is rarely favored, they’re a much less reliable 5-6 ATS when getting the favorite label.



So, why are sportsbooks sleeping on the Nets when it comes to setting spreads? It’s simple: while their straight-up record doesn’t look great on paper, the franchise has injected far more NBA-level talent into the roster over the last year. D’Angelo Russell, Allen Crabbe, Jahlil Okafor and DeMarre Carroll were considered castoffs based on their previous situations but have helped the Nets remain at least somewhat competitive.

Sportsbooks still consider Brooklyn to be a bottom-of-the-barrel caliber team, so keep an eye on them as underdogs for the remainder of the campaign. Here’s a breakdown of every Nets game this season combined with how they fared against the spread in that span.
