Now that the league has come to a halt for the All-Star break, let’s check out the top three teams with the best ATS records thus far and find out why.

<h2><strong>Milwaukee Bucks (63%)</strong></h2><p>The Bucks are no longer a well-kept secret, currently occupying the penthouse in the Eastern Conference with a 43-14 straight up record (.754). However, what makes this team even more enticing to those who have consistently backed the Bucks in their <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/picks/nba/" target="_blank" title="More NBA Picks">NBA picks</a>, is their league-leading 34-20-3 ATS record which translates to covering in 63 percent of their games. One would think that the increasingly inflated lines offered by the <a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/betting-odds/nba-basketball/" target="_blank" title="Live NBA Odds Board">NBA odds</a> makers would eventually catch up to the soaring Bucks but, alas, they have not. Over their last nine games before the break, Milwaukee has won and covered in eight of those nine contests. Milwaukee trails only Golden State in points scored, averaging 116.9 per game, but leads the league in rebounds, grabbing an average of nearly 49 boards per game. Milwaukee has covered the number by an average of 3.6 points per game, which again leads all entries. Don’t think for a moment that the public hasn’t taken notice and will continue to pound the Bucks after the break but the oddsmakers will make it increasingly difficult for them to cover as the lines will continue to escalate against them, so beware.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"pt\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;😱 All the angles from &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Giannis_An34?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@Giannis_An34&lt;/a&gt;'s VICIOUS one-handed jam in his first &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/NBAAllStar?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;@NBAAllStar&lt;/a&gt; Game appearance!! &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/FearTheDeer?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#FearTheDeer&lt;/a&gt; | &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/hashtag/Giannis?src=hash&amp;amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#Giannis&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"https://t.co/LozMm9F8UH\"&gt;pic.twitter.com/LozMm9F8UH&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Milwaukee Bucks (@Bucks) &lt;a href=\"https://twitter.com/Bucks/status/1096234390139457539?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;15 de fevereiro de 2019&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n&lt;script async src=\"https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><h2><strong>Dallas Mavericks (61.4%)</strong></h2><p>The Mavs may be an also-ran in the standings, currently sitting in the No. 12 spot in the West with a 26-31 straight up mark. However, the gambling gods are smiling on Dirk Nowitzki’s swan song Dallas edition as the Mavs own a 35-22 record against the spread and are covering at a 61.4 percent clip. Dallas ranks sixth in the league in average margin of cover at 1.5 points per game. However, their ability to cash waned down the stretch as they won and covered just one of their last four games before the All-Star break. Luka Doncic, the third-overall pick in the 2018 draft, has been a sparkplug for Dallas and a leading Rookie of the Year candidate. Nowitzki is a fading star, averaging just 11 minutes and 4.7 points per game, but the rest of his team is doing enough to cover the number and bring home the cash for their backers.</p><p> </p><h2><strong>Sacramento Kings (60.7%)</strong></h2><p>First and foremost, congratulations if you were prescient enough to bet over the Kings’ season win total in your NBA futures. If you don’t know by now, and I’m quite sure you do, Sacramento has already eclipsed the 25 ½ posted win total before the season began with 30 victories on the season. Not only have they cashed for their long-term backers but are currently third in the league with a 34-22-1 ATS record, although their 30-27 straight up mark is not quite good enough to cop a playoff spot. Yet, Sacramento is within a game of the Clippers for the No. 8 seed in the West and Buddy Hield is the difference maker, averaging 20.5 points per game. SacTo is getting good production offensively, ranked ninth, but are in the bottom rung in defense, allowing 114.6 PPG (26<sup>th</sup>). The Kings head into the break covering six of their last seven and played Denver, one of the best in the West, in their last contest before bowing 120-118 as 7 ½ point road dogs. Sacramento is one of those teams that under the radar so the public may not be hip to their money-making schtick. But you are, so bet them!<br /> </p><h2 style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.sportsbookreview.com/forum/nba-basketball-betting/">Talk Basketball on SBR's NBA Betting Forum</a></h2>
