Philadelphia has been winning games and getting the cheddar at sportsbooks. Let’s look at that Betworthy Trend and some others relating to this weekend's NBA action.

NBA: Betworthy Trends, Week 25

1. 76ers Streaking SU and ATS

Despite a fluke Injury that has sidelined C Joel Embiid likely for the remainder of the season, the 76ers (45-30 SU) continue to be one of the hottest teams in the league. They won in Atlanta on Friday night for their ninth victory in a row SU and seventh straight ATS, making Philadelphia (43-31-2 ATS) the second-most profitable team on which to bet behind Boston. The Sixers had been 0-3 SU/ATS the L3 against the Hawks in Atlanta and 1-7 ATS the L8 in the series. The 76ers are -3 road favorites today in Charlotte (34-43 SU, 32-40-4 ATS) in what looks like a pretty good spot to back rolling Philadelphia with your NBA picks. The 76ers are -3 road favorites on the NBA odds board.

2. Hobbled Celtics 39-15 ATS in L54 Saturday Games

The Celtics were 46-27-2 ATS (63 percent) heading into Saturday's game against Toronto, although Boston had some injury issues and was a home underdog. Nonetheless, the Celtics won 110-99 to improve their impressive Saturday ATS mark.

3. Jazz 20-8 ATS Last 28 Sunday Games

Utah (43-33 SU, 39-36-1 ATS) has played nine consecutive Sunday "overs" and is an impressive 20-8 ATS (71.4 percent) its L28 games played on a Sunday entering tonight's game in Minnesota. The Jazz need all the wins they can get as they try to maintain a playoff spot in the Western Conference.

4. Lakers Continue to Impress at Home

Los Angeles (33-42 SU, 39-36-0 ATS) got the money at the betting windows for home games in March (and late February), going 12-4 ATS their L16 games. They host the Kings tonight. L.A.'s Brandon Ingram (neck) and Lonzo Ball (knee) were listed as questionable. The Kings are 1-7 ATS L8 vs. Pacific Division, the Lakers are 2-5 ATS the L7 meetings in L.A., and the favorite is 4-0 ATS the L4. The "under" is a powerful 7-1-1 the L9 series meetings.

5. Mavericks a Surprising 13-5 ATS L18 Sunday Games

Dirk Nowitzki will be back for one more season for the Mavericks (23-53 SU, 39-36-1 ATS), and hopefully the team will do a little better in what will likely be his final season in the NBA. For some reason, the Mavericks have been covering ATS on Sundays, going a profitable 13-5 ATS the L18 heading into Sunday's game at Cleveland. LeBron James and the Cavaliers opened as big 11-point home favorites (218½). And with Cleveland so poor ATS at home (17-37-2 ATS L56) and Dallas so good on Sundays lately and decent on the road against the betting number (20-16-1 ATS), the trends point to taking the visitors with the points.

6. Pistons a Good Bet of Late

Blake Griffin and the Pistons (35-40 SU, 36-37-2 ATS) have W4 SU and W7 ATS in a row, including Saturday's 115-109 victory at New York (DET- 4, 211). Even though Detroit (9-2 ATS L11) has been getting the money at the sportsbooks, they are in real trouble in terms of making the postseason, sitting in ninth place in the Eastern Conference. The Pistons remain in the Big Apple for today's game against Brooklyn. The Nets (24-51-0 SU, 42-31-2 ATS) opened as 1-point home favorites, but that has shifted and they are now +1 underdogs. The last time the Pistons and Nets met was in December, with host Detroit winning 104-101 but failing to cover ATS as 6½ home chalks (O/U 203).
