NBA picks (Jan 5): 19-16 ATS (54%), 5% ROI
Backing the Cavs to beat the number: Cleveland +6
Don't look now, but the Cavs are winning this season!...and making money for bettors to boot! The Cavaliers have managed 4-3 straight up and ATS records through seven games, good for 3rd place in the Central Division (one loss behind the Bucks for the top spot) and the 8th best record in the League versus the number.
We expect the Cavs to continue to compete, and are betting Cleveland responds to the 20-point blowout loss at Orlando yesterday, with the cover in today's rematch.
In line with our expectation, historically, road dogs off an ATS underdog loss have been winning bets facing teams that covered in their last game. Backing teams in this spot has yielded a 7% return since 2005.
This system is has only experienced two losing seasons since 2005 and is 6-1 ATS so far this season
