The last week in the NBA has been all about runs. The Clippers won and covered four straight, the Jazz put together a 4-0 SU stretch and the Nuggets and Pelicans are starting to gain momentum. But runs come in the form of losing streaks as well. Milwaukee dropped three of four last week and failed to cover in any of them, and Chicago has been disappointing despite the additions at the trade deadline.
One team that has been in excellent form is Charlotte, which has an opportunity this week to clinch the Over on its win total. Despite all that, we still have the same team on top of our rankings.
1. Brooklyn Nets (1)
Week recap: 3-1 SU/1-3 ATS
The biggest blemish for Brooklyn was a blowout in Utah as a 13.5-point underdog that James Harden, Kyrie Irving and others missed. The Nets’ power rating seems to be at its peak, though, and its 1-3 ATS week points to that. How much should we read into the Nets getting into tussles with Detroit and Minnesota?
