Golden State (2-0) at New Orleans (0-2)
Despite being down 0-2 in their first round playoff matchup against the top-seeded Golden State Warriors, the New Orleans Pelicans could get a home win and accompanying ATS victory in Game 3 if their 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS marks in its last 10 home games means anything.
Unfortunately, the Pelicans are also just 1-4 SU and 2-2-1 ATS in their last five home game against Golden State. The Warriors are 6-4 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 road games, but Steph Curry and company are also just 1-1 SU and 0-2 ATS in their two road games against Anthony Davis and thee Pelicans this season.
Houston (2-0) at Dallas (0-2)
Not only do the Dallas Mavericks and head coach Rick Carlisle have all sorts of problems with veteran point guard Rajon Rondo, but Dirk Nowitzki and company are also just 6-4 SU and a pitiful 3-7 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Last but not least, Dallas is 3-2 SU and 2-2-1 ATS in its last five home games against Houston and 1-1 SU and ATS this season against their hated division rivals this season. The Rockets on the other hand, apparently will have a good shot at pulling off the road ‘upset’ having gone 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 road games.
Clippers (1-1) at San Antonio(1-1)
Not only did the San Antonio Spurs get a great road win in Game 2 to steal home court advantage away from the Clippers, but the Spurs have also gone an incendiary 9-1 SU and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games.
Tim Duncan and the rest of the Spurs, have gone 1-1 SU and ATS against the Clippers in their pair of home dates against Chris Paul and company this season, but they’re going to take on a Los Angeles squad that has gone 9-1 SU and ATS in their last 10 road games.
Memphis (2-0) at Portland (0-2)
The Portland Trail Blazers have looked pretty awful in falling into an 0-2 hole against the Memphis Grizzlies, but at least the Blazers have gone 7-3 SU and 6-4 ATS in their last 10 home games.
While Zach Randolph and the Grizz are just 4-6 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 road games, they’re going to take on a Blazers ballclub that has also posted a pitiful 1-4 SU and ATS mark in their last five home games against the Grizzlies, including 0-2 SU and ATS this season.
Now you know who’s cashing in consistently and who’s struggling to cover the spread, both at home and on the road.
