So far, so good, in the NBA Orlando Bubble
It’s smooth sailing in the Orlando bubble. Although some players have complained about food, lodgings, the 48-hour quarantine period, and other trivial things, most players appear comfortable in the bubble.
Oklahoma City Thunder center Steve Adams stated that the bubble “wasn’t Syria”. That says it right there. Things aren’t the way players want them to be. But it could be much worse.
In any case, on Monday the National Basketball Association released some other great news. Of 346 players the league tested for the coronavirus, 0 tested positive.
So far, the concept of having all teams stay at Walt Disney World has worked. Now, players, coaches, and NBA personnel can move on to having actual basketball games.
NBA teams to back against the spread during the NBA Orlando Playoffs
Because the bubble concept is working, it also means basketball handicappers can breath a giant sigh of relief and get back to doing what they do best, finding winning basketball wagers.
With that in mind, we wanted to list the 10 best teams to back against the spread so far this season. Obviously, things could go south for any these teams.
No sports league has ever tried anything like this. But if these 10 teams are focused, they could be money in Orlando. All records are against the spread (ATS). Check out the list!
- Oklahoma City Thunder – 40-24
- Boston Celtics – 38-23-3
- Los Angeles Lakers – 35-27-1
- Milwaukee Bucks – 36-29-0
- Toronto Raptors – 35-28-1
- Dallas Mavericks – 35-29-3
- Indiana Pacers – 34-28-3
- Los Angeles Clippers – 35-29-0
- New York Knicks – 35-30-1
- Memphis Grizzlies – 34-30-1
We can knock the Knicks off the list. New York won’t participate. They’re not one of the twenty-two teams. A sneaky team not in the Top 10 to consider backing ATS could be the New Orleans Pelicans.
Zion Williamson will play, and that could make all the difference for the Pels in the bubble.
Get your NBA Championship wagers in before the restart
The National Basketball Association returns on July 30. Right now, we can wager on the team we believe has what it takes to win the 2020 NBA Finals.
Don’t like the low-odds on the Lakers, Bucks, or Clippers? Consider the Celtics, Raptors, or an underdog like the Miami Heat.
Make sure to wager before July 30. Make no mistake. If the Lakers or Clipper dominate the other team, their odds will drop big time. So, if you like either, wager as soon as you can.
