NBA favorites are on an incredible run over the last two days in the NBA, going 15-0 straight up and 12-3 against the spread across Sunday and Monday's action.
Favorites are having quite the week, as the Oklahoma City Thunder rallied from 16 down as 8.5-point favorites to beat the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night in double overtime. Plus, on Monday night, the Los Angeles Clippers and Dallas Mavericks both erased second half deficits to win outright on the road.
So, with seven games in action tonight, should bettors expect favorites to dominate again?

While this favorite trend is certainly interesting, it's important to note that all of these games are separate and one trend doesn't apply to all of them. There's more to use when betting on the NBA tonight, but this trend is just too crazy not to point out.
