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.

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* Kansas City (1:00 ET): Fresh off upsetting the Panthers at home, 41-38 as 3-point underdogs, the Saints now take their act on the road where I feel it is very likely they'll experience far less success. The Chiefs, now 4-2 after an impressive win at Oakland (my *10* Game of the Week), appear to be hitting their stride w/ key players returning.
New Orleans' defense remains very, very bad. They are one of only four teams currently allowing 400 YPG. Kansas City just got done beating one of the other three (Oakland) and did so handily by a score of 26-10. Key was the running game, which rang up 183 yards thanks to a career day from Spencer Ware and the return of Jamaal Charles. Alex Smith should have one of his better outings of the season here considering the Saints' D has already given up four 300+ yard passing days. Save for a shockingly low-scoring loss to the Giants (16-13), the Saints have allowed at least 34 points in all other game.
While the Saints defense should continue its ineptitude, Drew Brees and the offense are likely to experience massive regression from last week. This will be their third venture outdoors this season. The first, as referenced above, saw them only score 13 pts in a loss to the Giants. Then, they were VERY fortunate to beat San Diego 35-34 thanks to the usual late game ineptitude from Mike McCoy's bunch. Back to back upsets (by a total of four points!) haven't changed my thinking that New Orleans is not going to be a very good team this season. 1* Kansas City
