Super Bowl Sunday is here and if you are looking for a way to boost your sportsbook bankroll with some stellar NBA bets this week then look no further here are my top 4 underdog NBA teams to bet against the spread on as we head into the second half of the NBA betting season.
The NBA betting season has been the most volatile in recent years due to some blockbuster offseason trades, injuries and a wealth of under-rated talent and keep reading for the best ATS hoops teams to bet on in 2015.
Top 4 Underdog NBA Teams To Bet ATS
- Milwaukee Bucks, 31-15 ATS, 24-22 SU
The Bucks are still an underdog because they’re only 2 games above .500. But there isn’t an opponent in the Eastern Conference that probably doesn’t take them seriously considering how well they’ve played this season. Just think of how good the starting five would be if Jabari Parker hadn’t gotten hurt. Brandon Knight is averaging 18 points and 5 assists per game. The other guard, Giannis Antetokounmpo from Athens, Greece, is incredibly athletic and poses serious matchup problems because he’s 6’ 9” and weighs 205 lbs.

- New Orleans Pelicans, 28-19 ATS, 25-22 SU
The team isn’t just Anthony Davis although Davis averages 24.5 points and 10.4 boards per game. He could garner some MVP consideration with those numbers. If the Pelicans played in the Eastern Conference, they’d be a shoo-in to make the playoffs, but the West is tough. Jrue Holiday won’t be back until mid-February, but Tyreke Evans and Eric Gordon have picked up the slack and Dante Cunningham is a valuable contributor of this under the radar team.

- Utah Jazz, 25-22 ATS, 17-30 SU
Beating Utah straight up might seem like a sure thing, but beating them against the spread hardly ever is. The Jazz has gone 4 and 1 against the spread in the team’s last 5 games. One thing that’s difficult to understand is how Gordon Hayward, who is averaging close to 20 points, 5 rebounds and 4 assists per game, didn’t make the All-Star Game. Really? Hayward can single-handedly beat Utah’s opponents. Just ask Golden State whom Hayward blitzed for 26 points, 15 rebounds and 6 assists in a 110 to 100 Utah victory on Jan. 30.

- Boston Celtics, 24-21 ATS, 16-29 SU
The Celtics have gone 6 and 1 against the spread in their last 7 games. It could take a while for odds makers to find the correct line for this team after they traded away Jeff Green. Green wasn’t the only guy capable of playing on this team, though. Jae Crowder is turning into a decent forward while Brandon Bass and Jared Sullinger really work hard. Guard Evan Turner from Ohio State has also shown signs of being a really good pro player. Under certain conditions, Boston can surprise some of the better teams in the NBA.
