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 straight up (SU)/against the spread (ATS) information that you should find helpful for Monday’s NBA betting card.
