This is an 8* SITUATIONAL DESTRUCTION on the Brooklyn Nets.

We don't subscribe to any single handicapping methodology, but instead feel that being flexible with ones approach is the best way to secure profits over the longterm. Sometimes we keep it simple, while other times we'll take into account numerous different factors, like motivation, scheduling and significant injuries. Recognizing classic "spot bets" is something we always do as well, IE: the "look ahead" spot, the "let down" spot and the "trap" game. One set of criteria which we almost always use when making our decisions are Against The Spread (ATS) statistics. Sometimes these stats can be overrated and other times they help foreshadow the outcome of a contest.

This particular play is based primarily on strong/relevant ATS statistics and the “revenge factor:”

Brooklyn lost at home to Milwaukee just last week so is out to avenge that setback and note that it’s 2-0 ATS in revenging a home loss vs. an opponent thi sseason and 14-10 ATS in its last 24 as a road dog of 9 1/2 to 12 points.

And note that Milwaukee is just 2-11 ATS in its last 13 after three or more consecutive SU victories and just 3-4 ATS in its last seven when playing the role of favorite.

The bottom line: Great situational and trend based factors make the NETS the correct call in this one.
