TALKIN' TITLE

ACTION REPORT 📊

Fanatics Sportsbook | PB creative

The sports calendar has felt a little light over the past week, but luckily the NBA regular season resumes tomorrow. So which teams are the most popular title bets by tickets as we enter the second half of this campaign?

1. Nuggets (+425) 9.4%
Denver is looking to become the fourth team to win consecutive NBA championships since 2000 😮, along with the 2000-02 Lakers, 2012-13 Heat and 2017-18 Warriors.

2. Clippers (+500) 7.8%
The Clippers had the longest preseason odds among the five most popular title bets, as Los Angeles came in at +1800.

3. Warriors (+4500) 6.0%
There’s more belief surrounding Golden State of late. After reaching a high point of +7500 from Feb. 8 to Feb. 12, the Warriors now sit at +4500.

4. Celtics (+230) 5.6%
Incredibly, Boston has been the sole title favorite every single day since the season tipped off on Oct. 24. At +230, this is the shortest price the Celtics have been this campaign.

5. Bucks (+600) 5.4%
If you’re trusting a Doc Rivers-coached team to win the title, you’re a braver bettor than most 😂.

EXPERT PICKS

Max Meyer is rolling with a home underdog in Big Ten play, while Ryan Elmalem thinks that now could be the last chance for strong value with this NBA team to do major damage in the playoffs.

THE SENIOR EDITOR

Indiana +1 (-110) vs. Nebraska [8:30 p.m. ET]
"Nebraska has been incredible at home this season but the Cornhuskers are 0-7 straight up and 1-6 ATS on the road against Big Ten foes. Indiana's bigs played well when these two teams first met this season and can outmuscle Nebraska inside again."

THE GRAPHICS GUY

Team to Win the Western Conference: Thunder +800
"The Thunder aren't being priced like a top contender despite a roster that features an MVP candidate, a reliable second scorer (Jalen Williams) and a well-rounded big man (Chet Holmgren) Don't count them out because they don't have the flashiest Big 3."

HOME SWEET HOME

TREND IS YOUR FRIEND 🏀

Fanatics Sportsbook | PB data and insights

It’s been seemingly impossible to pick up big road 🛣️ wins this college basketball season. The numbers certainly back up that claim.

When two top-25 teams have squared off, home favorites have gone 29-6 straight up this campaign 🤯. If you’re curious about how they’ve fared against the spread, ranked home favorites are 23-12 ATS (65.7%) against other top-25 foes.

We have one such case tonight, with No. 13 Alabama hosting No. 24 Florida. The Crimson Tide opened as 8-point home chalk and have since been bet up to -8.5.

LOVELY LONGSHOT

BIG BET 💰

Is this bettor buying low at the right time 🤔? The Pacers were +6000 to win it all less than a month ago.
