NBA Trends and Line Movement (3/31)

Justin Bales

The new Bet Karma NBA Trends page is designed to show the line movement in team totals, spreads, and game totals. Each section features the opening number, live number, and difference between the two. The movement is taken from the DraftKings Sportsbook


In this article, I’ll breakdown the movement from one game with the corresponding player prop bet from our Prop Predictor. All of our player props can be found on the Live Odds page by clicking “view props” for each game.

The Dallas Mavericks opened as 1 point road favorites against the Boston Celtics today. The lines shifted 2 points toward Boston, as Dallas is now a 1 point underdog. The game total opened at 225 points, dropping to 222 throughout the day. The Mavericks team total dipped from 113 to 110.5, while the Celtics decreased from 112 to 111.5. 


Both teams have struggled against the spread (ATS) this season. Dallas’ covered in only 46.7% of their games, while Boston’s covered in 46.8%.
