NBA Picks Against the Spread
NBA Picks for Today:
Atlanta Hawks vs. Orlando Magic
Point Spread: +/- 12
The people who make NBA expect picks believe the Hawks are massive favorites for this game and despite the 12-point edge in Atlanta’s favor, the numbers would seem to suggest the Hawks should be able to cover the spread – and the experts seem to believe that will be the case as well. When looking at the numbers, the Hawks have the edge when it comes to both points scored per game (113.5 points per game against Orlando’s 104.4 points per game, the second-worst mark in the league) and points conceded per contest (110.7 against Orlando’s 111.3), but they’re also topping the Magic on a head-to-head basis in several other categories such as assists and blocks per game. The statistical approach is not the only area where Atlanta has the edge over Orlando, though, as the win-loss record is also telling. While the Hawks are in the upper part of the Eastern Conference standings and own a strong 31-26 mark, including a 15-11 record at home, the Magic have recorded just 18 wins against 39 losses and have also dropped 19 of their 27 games when playing on the road. As if the edge in numbers and stats wasn’t enough, it’s also worth noting that the Hawks will have the edge when it comes to the injury report – even though both teams will have absentees, Atlanta can do a better job of masking its absences compared to Orlando. The Hawks will be a bit thin in terms of depth in this game but can mask them, though, with Danilo Gallinari (foot), Tony Snell (ankle), De’Andre Hunter (knee), Kris Dunn (ankle) and Cam Reddish (Achilles), but head coach Nate McMillan has adjusted well to those absences. Meanwhile, the Magic will be missing quite a few veterans with Terrence Ross (back), Otto Porter (foot), Michael Carter-Williams (ankle) and James Ennis (calf) all out for this one, meaning Orlando will have to trust in its young players once again – something that has been backfiring of late despite a few decent performances from names such as Chuma Okeke and Mo Bamba of late. The Hawks have the edge in pretty much every way this game can be analyzed, and Atlanta shouldn’t have problems covering the massive 12-point spread as a result.
Best Bet: Hawks -12

The Best Teams Against the Spread in 2021
We are a bit more than halfway through the NBA season and we wanted to take a deeper look at how teams stack up against the spread, because some of the teams may surprise you more than you would think. Common sense would make you think the best teams in the NBA cover the spread most often, but that just is not true. Some of the best NBA picks against the spread are the bottom tier teams in the league. A wise man once said that good teams win, but great teams cover. Below are the best teams picks against the spread so far in the 2021 NBA season.
The Suns are having a great year straight up on the moneyline, but surprisingly they are the best team against the spread in the NBA. So far in the 2021 season the Suns are covering the number at a 67% rate which is truly remarkable. The Suns were the darling team on the bubble last season and in 2021 they are making a case that they are one of the best teams in the NBA. What they don't have to make a case for is being the best team against the spread because not only are the best at covering the spread, they have one of the best marins of victory in the league, and on average the cover the point spread by 2 points. The Suns have been so impressive this season that the oddsmakers have regularly been making them the favorite against the spread and they still find a way to cover the point spread. Usually you will see a team that is often getting points as one of the better teams against the spread because they are able to play close games. Any time you see a time that is more often the favorite than not cover spread after spread you have to tip your hat to that team.
It shouldn't be much of a surprise that the Utah Jazz are one of the best teams in the NBA at covering the spread. Earlier this season the Jazz went on an epic run and destroyed everyone in their path. The Jazz have come back to Earth about in recent weeks, but the oddsmakers adjusted and the Jazz continued to cover. Overall in the 2021 season the Utah Jazz are covering the spread in 65% of their games, and they on average have a margin of victory of 9.5 points. The Jazz are not out there to make friends and have no problem blowing teams out night after night. Similar to the Suns it is impressive to see a team that is favored so often cover the spread, so far in 2021 the Jazz have only been an underdog on three occasions and they has not stopped them from making NBA bettors a profit. Keep your eye on the Jazz to see if they can continue to cover the spread and if they are a viable pick against the spread later in the NBA season.
Los Angeles Clippers
The Clippers haven't gotten as much attention as they did last year, but it hasn't stopped them from crushing teams against the spread. The Clippers currently are the third-best team in the NBA at covering the spread and are covering at a rate of 57% on the season. With one of the best players in the league in Kawhi Leonard it makes sense that this team covers the spread more often than not. Kawhi has the unique ability to limit any team from scoring, but can also score with regularity him self. It also helps that the Clippers are a deep team with veteran leadership. It is a bit of a surprise to us that the three best teams in the league at covering the point spreads are regularly overwhelming favorites.
