NBA Trends To Know Before Betting On Tuesday's Slate

Tonight's eight game slate features some interesting matchups

Nets at Celtics, 7:35pm EST


THE TREND: The Celtics are 7-1 SU (6-1-1 ATS) in their last eight home games.

WHY IT MATTERS: Despite the fact that they’ve been playing without Kemba Walker since the All-Star break, Boston is emerging as a legitimate contender in the Eastern Conference due to the rapid ascension and development of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown. Walker is listed as probable for their contest against the Nets on Tuesday night and the squad will be back to near full strength if he takes the court. (It's worth noting that Tatum is now unlikely to play tonight due to an illness, however.) The Celtics own the NBA’s best cover percentage and have been an impenetrable bunch from a mental standpoint, as their next-man up mantra has clearly paid off. Betting on a nine-point favorite in today’s perimeter-centric NBA is always risky, but there’s no denying that this Celtics team is clicking.

T-Wolves at Pelicans, 8:05pm EST

NOP -11.5, O/U 247  VIEW LIVE ODDS

THE TREND: The OVER has hit in five-straight Minnesota road games.

WHY IT MATTERS: With a total that opened just under 250 points, this game is fully expected to shoot out. Oddsmakers have adjusted their opening totals to account for the Pelicans’ lightning-fast playing style, ability to put the ball in the hole and inability to get consistent stops on the defensive end. With Karl-Anthony Towns out with a wrist injury, the Timberwolves have still been engaged in some high-scoring affairs lately, especially since newcomers D’Angelo Russell, Malik Beasley, and Juan Hernangomez are offensive threats. READ MORE about how Zion Williamson’s addition has changed New Orleans’ playing style and productivity on both ends of the floor. It’d be difficult to pull the trigger on the over based on the astronomical total, but based on how both of these teams have performed, it’d be reasonable.

76ers at Lakers, 10:05pm EST

LAL -12.5, O/U 220.5  VIEW LIVE ODDS

THE TREND: The Sixers are 2-12 (SU + ATS) over their last 14 road games.

WHY IT MATTERS: The Sixers can’t win on the road (against basically any team), will be playing without both Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid and are taking on one of the best squads in the NBA. Shake Milton will have to continue his red-hot shooting, Tobias Harris will need to have a huge game and some other pieces will have to step up in huge ways to keep this game in striking distance, but with a double-digit spread, anything’s possible! Philly’s road woes are one of the most well-known NBA betting trends right now.
