NBA DraftKings Sportsbook Report: Basketball Betting Trends, Spread and Over/Under Information to Help You Place Your NBA Bets on February 23

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

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 DraftKings Sportsbook betting trends and against the spread (ATS) information that you should find helpful for Tuesday’s NBA betting card.

Place your NBA bets at DraftKings Sportsbook and bet online by downloading the DraftKings Sportsbook app.
