The Toronto Raptors have plenty to be thankful for as they head into Thanksgiving weekend with an Eastern Conference-best 13-2 record following a decisive 126-115 win over the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday night, solidly covering as four-point road favorites in NBA betting at Bodog.
The win was Toronto’s sixth straight, 4-2 ATS, and their fourth by double-digits during the winning streak. The Raptors’ early success has also dramatically impacted the club’s odds in NBA futures betting. After opening the season as 50/1 longshots, the Dinos are currently 12/1 at Bodog to win the 2015 NBA Championship.
The Raptors return home to take on the Dallas Mavericks on Friday night. The Mavs improved to 11-5 on Wednesday following their 109-102 win over the New York Knicks, failing to cover as 14.5-point favorites at Bodog.
Toronto travels to Los Angeles to take on the 3-11 Lakers on Sunday, in the first of three road dates with Western Conference opponents.
The Golden State Warriors will be gunning for their eighth straight win, 5-3 ATS, when they visit the 4-12 Charlotte Hornets on Friday night.
The Pacific Division-leading Warriors improved to 12-2 on Wednesday with a 111-96 win over the Orlando Magic, covering an 8.5-point spread in NBA betting at Bodog.
Golden State wraps up a five-game road swing through the East when they visit the 3-12 Detroit Pistons on Sunday. The Pistons have lost nine of their last 10, 5-5 ATS.
The Memphis Grizzlies continue a west coast swing over the holiday weekend, taking on the Portland Trail Blazers and Sacramento Kings.
The Grizzlies went into action on Wednesday night with a 12-2 SU record, posting ATS wins in their last four after failing to cover in five straight. But despite their periodic struggles to reward bettors in the early going, Memphis is a solid 14/1 bet in NBA futures betting at Bodog.
Close on the Grizzlies’ heels are the Houston Rockets, who improved to 12-3 SU on Wednesday with a 102-89 win over the Kings.
The Rockets will be in tough this weekend when they welcome the LA Clippers to town on Friday night. Houston has struggled in recent meetings with the 9-5 Clippers, just 1-9 SU in their last 10 and 3-7 ATS.
Houston travels to Milwaukee for a date with the resurgent Bucks on Saturday. The Bucks are off to a 9-7 start after winning just 15 games all of last season.
