NBA Week 4 Betting Stats & Trends: Suns are sizzling against the spread
NBA Week 4 Betting Stats: Marcus Mosher brings the latest NBA Week 4 Trends to know.
We are now a few weeks into the NBA season and that means we finally have some data to help us with our bets. Here is everything you need to know about betting on the NBA this week.
NBA Week 4 Betting Stats
1. The Suns have covered the spread in 16 of their last 20 games.
The Phoenix Suns were one of the best stories of the NBA Bubble. With a remote chance of making the playoffs, the Suns went 8-0 in the restart as they just narrowly missed the tournament.
In the offseason, they made the bold trade of acquiring superstar Chris Paul, which has led to a hot stat as the team is 7-4 on the season. They’ve also been incredible against the spread in their last 20 games, covering 16 times.
On Wednesday, they will take on the Hawks and they are currently five-point favorites. Recent trends suggest that may not be enough points as they’ve been playing excellent basketball as of late.
2. Minnesota continues to be an awful home team.
Things don’t appear to be going that well in Minnesota with the Timberwolves. Despite boasting several “star” quality players, the team just can’t find a way to sustain any success. One of the Wolves’ biggest problems has been their inability to win on their own court.
While there aren’t fans attending NBA games yet, they still haven’t been able to take care of business when they aren’t forced to travel. Minnesota has now lost 16 of its last 20 home games, and they will take on the Memphis Grizzlies at the Target Center on Wednesday night.
Considering their lack of home success, it might not be a bad idea to bet against them once again when they’re in the Twin Cities.
3. The Lakers are undefeated on the road this season.
The sign of a great team is the ability to take care of business on the road. No team has done that better this season than the Los Angeles Lakers.
On the season, the team is undefeated when playing away from home with a record of 6-0. Coming off a blowout win against the Rockets on Tuesday night, the Lakers will take on the Thunder in Oklahoma City on Wednesday.
The Lakers are big favorites in that game and have the unique combination of size, speed and athleticism. While there isn’t a ton of value in betting the moneyline in games with the Lakers, don’t be afraid to throw them in a parlay as they are a safe bet away from home.
4. The Pelicans have failed to cover the spread in 9 of their last 12 games.
One team that the public hasn’t caught up to yet is the New Orleans Pelicans. There is a ton of public interest in this team as Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Lonzo Ball are incredibly fun to watch.
However, that hasn’t always translated into a ton of team success. On the season, the Pelicans have a record of just 4-5. However, they are just 3-6 against the spread. Over the last 12 games, they’ve failed to cover the spread in only three of those games.
As of right now, this is a team that we probably should avoid or fade when it comes to the spread. Consider betting against the Pelicans (+6) on Wednesday night against the Clippers

5. The Under has hit in 4 of the past 6 games for the Trail Blazers.
When you think of the Trail Blazers, you think of a high-scoring, fast-paced offense that can score 140 points on any given night. And that has once again been the case for the 2020-2021 version of this team.
They are currently No. 4 in the NBA in scoring, averaging 117 points per game. Their defense continues to be a problem, but it’s not as bad as we saw last year. They are allowing 115 points per game, which is slightly less than they allowed last season. It’s also a big dropoff from what we saw during the NBA restart in Orlando and in the playoffs.
But bettors haven’t quite caught up to it yet as the Under continues to be a strong bet in games regarding the Blazers.
Over the last six games, the under has hit in four games and that’s not all that surprising considering they’ve allowed 109.5 points per game over the previous four contests. They’ll face the Kings on Wednesday night with an over/under at 235.5 points. Considering their improved defense, the under looks to be a safe bet once again in this game.
