Julian Edlow provides some top trends to help you place NBA bets on DraftKings Sportsbook on Monday’s betting card.

NBA: Houston Rockets at Chicago Bulls Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The NBA is the Wild West right now given COVID-19 and the league’s health protocols, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t edges to be had. Generally, I’m giving out plays in a best bets article, and while I’ll still be doing so, I think it’s also helpful to share some numbers that help you conduct your own research and make your own plays. Here are some trends and information that you should find helpful on Monday’s NBA betting card.
