15* NBA Friday Undervalued Underdog on Charlotte Bobcats +16
Charlotte vs. Philadelphia,
01/27/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 72 - 89
Point Spread: +16/-105 Charlotte
The Philadelphia 76ers are clearly one of the best teams in the league, but the odds are finally starting to catch up to them. Philly opened 11-2 ATS through their first 13 games as they flew under the radar. The 76ers are just 2-3 SU & 2-3 ATS in their last 5, losing to the Nets 90-97 as an 11-point favorite last time out.
There's no question that the Charlotte Bobcats have struggled in the early going. The good news is that because of their struggles, the betting public is off of them. This provides us with some excellent line value on the Bobcats going forward, especially tonight as a ridiculous 16-point underdog. They can get blown out and still cover this monster spread.
The Bobcats are 11-1 (92%) ATS in their last 12 road games versus very good teams - outscoring their opponents by 6+ points/game. They are only losing by 5.1 points/game on average in this spot. The Bobcats are a superb 13-1 (93%) ATS in their last 14 after failing to cover the spread in 3 or more consecutive games. They are actually winning in this spot by 4.9 points/game. Roll with the Bobcats Friday.
