Detroit Pistons vs. Indiana Pacers Odds, Spread and Total

Detroit has played better as of late, covering the spread in five of its last eight games before the break. The Pistons are 14-13 ATS as road dogs this season.

Indiana, on the other hand, is just 7-9-1 ATS as a home favorite this season.

Brooklyn Nets vs. Toronto Raptors Odds, Spread and Total

Neither of these teams have thrived in this spot in the 2023-24 season, but the UNDER has been money in Toronto's home games this season, going 17-10.

New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers Odds, Spread and Total

This is an interesting matchup with so many key players out on both sides (Joel Embiid, Julius Randle are the All-Stars missing), but the Knicks did blow out the Sixers the last time these teams met.

However, New York is just 5-10-1 ATS as a road underdog this season.

Orlando Magic vs. Cleveland Cavaliers Odds, Spread and Total

Orlando is the best team against the spread in the NBA, and the team is 13-10 ATS as a road dog. The Cavs, who entered the break as the hottest team in the league, are 11-9-1 ATS as home favorites.

Phoenix Suns vs. Dallas Mavericks Odds, Spread and Total

These teams have split their meetings this season with a double-digit win coming for each squad.

The Suns have struggled against the spread overall, but they are 5-4 ATS as road underdogs. Dallas is 8-10 ATS as a home favorite this season.

Boston Celtics vs. Chicago Bulls Odds, Spread and Total

Boston has struggled to cover the spread as a road favorite, but the Bulls are one of the best teams ATS as a home dog, going 7-3-1.

Los Angeles Clippers vs. Oklahoma City Thunder Odds, Spread and Total

OKC has thrived as home favorite this season, going 15-7 against the spread. The Clippers have struggled as road dogs, going 3-5 ATS. Still, at a near pick'em this game is a true toss up.

Houston Rockets vs. New Orleans Pelicans Odds, Spread and Total

Houston has struggled on the road this season, going just 7-14-1 ATS as a road underdog.

New Orleans has covered the spread in 10 of 18 games as a home favorite.

This may be a game to bet on... Washington?

In 28 games as road underdogs, the Wizards are a shocking 18-9-1 ATS.

Charlotte Hornets vs. Utah Jazz Odds, Spread and Total

Utah has been one of the best home teams to bet on this season, going 7-3 ATS as home favorites. The Hornets, on the other hand are just 8-17 ATS as road dogs, the second worst mark in the NBA.

Los Angeles Lakers vs. Golden State Warriors Odds, Spread and Total

These teams played a multiple overtime thriller the last time they matched up, and both are playing well coming into this game winning more than 50 percent of their last 10 games.

Golden State is just 7-14 ATS as a home favorite this season, which is a concern in this matchup.

San Antonio Spurs vs. Sacramento Kings Odds, Spread and Total

The best bet in this game may be on the total, as the Kings' home games have hit the over 16 times in 24 tries.
