2020 NBA Action: Favoring Two Favorites Monday
Updated: Feb 8, 2021
NBA picks (Jan 10): 29-26 ATS (53%), 1% ROI
Laying chalk in Cleveland and Washington: Backing Grizzlies -2 and Suns -7
We interpret the present as good spots to back a couple of NBA favorites. Accordingly, we are getting down on the Grizz and Valley Boys for covers Monday. We detail below the the basis for these signals.
Early in the NBA season, backing road teams on winning streaks who experience closing line value versus non-conference competition that failed to make the prior playoffs has been a winning long-term strategy.
This system has lost money in four seasons since 2005, good for a whopping 19% return on investment, and is 2-1 so far this season.
Memphis snapped a three-game skid a few days ago with a four-point home win over the Nets, while Phoenix is off an eight point road dog win and Indiana two days ago.
The Action Network reports Memphis opened as one-point favorites, while Phoenix was originally slated as 6.5 points better than Washington.
Worth noting, in order for these picks to become 'official', the spreads must close wider than 1 and 6.5 respectively.
