Betting NBA home underdogs
Tonight’s free NBA tip is the home underdogs NBA teaser
Not the best games possible as it looks but good odds on two underdogs that can take advantage of some favorable circumstance. First NBA game of the night is
San Antonio Spurs visiting Atlanta Hawks
Things are not looking very good for Atl. Al Horford and Lou Williams have to sit out tonight . Horford missed Friday’s game in Brooklyn because of an injury , and Williams had to leave in the second quarter after spraining his right knee. Atl lost by 6 in front of the Nets.
Williams, who is third on the team in scoring at 14.1 per game, was expected to have additional tests.
From the bench, Jeff Teague topped 20 points for the second straight game with 21 and recorded his second double-double .
Having a terrible night, Josh Smith missed 10 of 15 shots and finished with 12 points in his return from a one-game team suspension. They match up key tonight though will be J Smith . If he can contain Tim Duncan this match up will be close and Atl won’t loose in a terrible manner. I think Josh Smith needs to prove something tonight and he will have a great game.
Interesting NBA trends :
Home team is 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings.
Spurs are 2-7 ATS in their last 9 road games.
Spurs are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600.
On the 2nd game of the night we have
Houston Rockets visiting Minnesota Timberwolves
After they lost their NBA star Kevin Love due to severe injury, Minnesota has gone 1-6. The Timberwolves suffered another major loss by losing Pekovic to a badly bruised right quadriceps during the game they lost to the Los Angeles Clippers by 13.
Ricky Rubio is back and he needs to pick up his pace a bit to sustain the offensive efforts of the Wolves.
The Rockets lost six in a row and this is their 4th game in a 5 days stretch, so the fatigue factor will be massive.
NBA trends to consider before betting this game:
Rockets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record.
Rockets are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 road games.
Rockets are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
Rockets are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a winning home record.
