NBA: 30 Team Review
With the All-Star game fast approaching I thought I'd take a quick look what all 30 teams have done SU, ATS and O/U thus far, to see if anything jumps out at us.
New York 23-11 SU - 17-16-1 ATS - 18-14-2 O/U
Brooklyn 19-15 SU - 15-17-2 ATS - 14-19-1 O/U

Toronto 12-22 SU - 17-17 ATS - 17-17 O/U
Chicago 19-13 SU - 12-20 ATS - 12-20 O/U

Washington 5-28 SU - 17-14-2 ATS - 16-16-2 O/U
Oklahoma City 26-8 SU - 20-13-1 ATS - 18-16 O/U
Portland 19-15 SU - 15-18-1 ATS - 16-17-1 O/U
Denver 20-16 SU - 22-14 ATS - 18-18 O/U
Utah 18-18 SU - 17-18-1 ATS - 16-19-1 O/U
Minnesota 15-15 SU - 16-14 ATS - 14-15-1 O/U
LA Clippers 27-8 SU - 22-13 ATS - 20-15 O/U
Golden State 22-11 SU - 20-12-1 ATS - 20-12-1 O/U
LA Lakers 15-18 SU - 13-19-1 ATS - 18-14-1 O/U
Sacramento 13-22 SU - 16-18-1 ATS - 22-13 O/U
Phoenix 12-23 SU - 14-19-2 ATS - 16-19 O/U
San Antonio 27-10 SU - 22-14-1 ATS - 18-19 O/U
Memphis 22-10 SU - 19-12-1 ATS - 11-21 O/U
Houston 20-14 SU - 20-13-1 ATS - 20-14 O/U
Dallas 13-22 SU - 16-19 ATS - 21-14 O/U
New Orleans 9-25 SU - 17-17 ATS - 17-17 O/U
Other than in the Pacific there's nothing too out of the ordinary here. Some may argue that the Knicks rise and the Celtics fall in the Atlantic is noteworthy, but New York has finally shown some cracks in its armor after the quick start, and the fact remains that only six games separate the teams right now.
We all knew the Clippers would be heading to the playoffs, but I don't think anyone predicted that they'd be leading the league with a .771 win percentage. And certainly no one would have guessed that they'd be leading the charge in the ATS department, 22-13 (63%).
And with all the fanfare surrounding their numerous offseason blockbuster trades, the Lakers sub-par SU and ATS marks are ones that must be monitored closely moving forward.

1* Free Play Minnesota Vikings.
What you see is what you get each year from Pittsburgh, which builds through the draft, doesn’t sign a lot of free agents and basically comes at you. How much Ben Roethlisberger has left is a question asked every September given the number of hits he takes. The biggest change will be at defensive coordinator, where legend Dick Lebeau is gone – which may mean the LBs will be freer to attack the pocket.
The Vikes have Adrian Peterson back and things seem to have calmed down a bit in Minnesota. But then again, Mike Wallace has been on board for only a few months. Vikes are looking for a huge Year 2 improvement from Teddy Bridgewater and if they get it they can make things sticky in the North.
In 2014/15 the Steelers were 1-3 SU/ATS in the preseason and in 2013/14 they were 0-4 SU/ATS. After missing the playoffs in 2013/14, Pittsburgh returned last year only to lose 30-17 to the Ravens in the Wildcard round. Mike Tomlin has clearly not been very worried about winning in the preseason the last few years.
Last year the Vikes went 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS in the preseason, after going 1-3 SU/ATS in 2013/14 and 1-3 SU/ATS in 2012/13. For a team which is desperately trying to get back to the playoffs, the preseason suddenly becomes a lot more important.
There are many players on Minnesota which have something to prove, while Pittsburgh will surely be happy to just go through the motions and leave Canton without any significant injuries.
Minnesota would seem to be the more motivated team in this one, consider laying the short points.
