2nd Half Trends to Watch
Editor's Note: Don't miss out on NBA Winners from Marc Lawrence on VegasInsider.com. Click to win!

You’ll never guess which team in the NBA is 10-0 ATS when coming off consecutive wins this season. With that and with the NBA taking a timeout for the All-Star break, there is no better time than the present to examine the condition of each team in the league at this stage of the season.

From the surprise teams to the disappointments, the run to the 2018 playoffs is about to take off.

Here’s a quick look from my well-oiled database of the very best and the very worst pointspread records to date this season of every team in games played this season through the All-Star break. In addition, I also present a noteworthy most recent trend on each team.

All results are SU (Straight Up), ATS (Against The Spread) or O/U (Over Under sequence) unless stated otherwise.

Keep an Eye On:

On the flip side, teams that have struggled mightily in these same payback situations include the Thunder (2-11 ATS) , the Pistons (3-9-1 ATS) , and the Spurs (2-6 SU/ATS) .

I’ve done my homework. Now, you do yours and we’ll both enjoy the 2nd half of the season.
