See spot. See spot bet: This week's best spot bets

Spot bets are classic handicapping practices that have proven profitable no matter what sport you're betting. Whether it's a team looking past this week's opponent, one coming off a hard-fought victory, or a rough patch of schedule, bettors can find value picking their spots. Covers Expert Ben Burns points out his favorites:

Letdown spot

Opening Day is a big deal for MLB clubs and brings with it plenty of jitters for Big League teams, some more than others. The Oakland Athletics seem to let those season debut butterflies get the best of them, losing 10 straight games on Opening Day. Oakland kicked off last year’s campaign with a 2-0 loss to Cleveland at home.

The A’s have been outscored 50-13 in that 10-season Opening Day drought. Oakland has had the misfortune of beginning the season against the Seattle Mariners and their staff ace Felix Hernandez in half of those games, including four straight years from 2010 to 2013. This time around, Oakland opens the 2015 season at home to the Texas Rangers Monday. Can they avoid another Opening Day letdown?

Lookahead spot

The Chicago Bulls are clinging to third place in the Eastern Conference, just a game up on Toronto in the standings. The Bulls have a monster matchup ahead on the schedule this weekend, visiting LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on Easter Sunday. But before then, the Bulls have a home date versus the Detroit Pistons Friday.

With the holiday weekend, the Bulls will be trying to cram in as much family time as they can around these games, which can often leave players unfocused – especially when you’re up against a non-contender like Detroit and staring down a showdown with the Cavs. The Pistons knocked off the Bulls 107-91 on March 21 and won 100-91 on February 20 with both games coming in Motown.

Schedule spot

The Washington Capitals are fighting to stay in the postseason picture, currently sitting in seventh in the Eastern Conference standings. They’re just three points ahead of No. 8 Boston and six points past Ottawa. The Capitals have a home stand against Carolina Tuesday then hit the road for a short three-game trip that could make or break their season.

Washington travels to Montreal Thursday to play the first-place Canadiens, then heads to Canada’s capital for a showdown with the Senators Saturday. The Capitals complete their 3-in-4 nights trek Sunday with a final stop in Detroit to take on a Red Wings team currently in sixth but tied with Washington at 92 points.

NBA Eastern Conference betting road map

CE Manager Mar 30, 2015

The playoff picture hasn't gotten any clearer in the Eastern Conference, with no fewer than four teams battling it out for the eighth and final playoff spot. Things are more settled at the top, where the Hawks own an eight-game edge over the second place Cavs.

Here's a look at four angles to consider over the next seven days.

Spread watch

The Boston Celtics are reeling at the absolute worst time, losers of five of their last seven games and winless ATS over their last three contests.

There is reason to believe they can turn things around this week, however. Boston will sandwich a pair of manageable road games around back-to-back contests at TD Garden. All four games are winnable, coming against the Hornets, Pacers, Bucks and Raptors. I expect to see the C's go 3-1 ATS at worst.

Note that Boston remains 10 games over .500 from an ATS perspective this season. This isn't the time to jump ship in my opinion.

Total watch

The 'under' has been a solid bet in games involving the Milwaukee Bucks but not so much lately.

Milwaukee has seen four of its last six games go 'over' the total but that's a short-term trend that will hold little weight this week. The Bucks have a big week ahead, with four games on tap against Eastern Conference opponents. It starts on Monday in Atlanta as Milwaukee aims to respond following a poor defensive showing against the sharp-shooting Warriors on Saturday night.

With major playoff implications, I expect to see the Bucks tighten things up considerably. Take a good look at the 'under' when they take the floor this week.

Injury impact

Sunday's narrow win over the lowly Philadelphia 76ers may have been a costly one for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they lost both Kevin Love and Iman Shumpert to injuries. The extent of those injuries is not known, so for now they're both listed as day-to-day.

Perhaps it's a good thing that the Cavs don't play again until Thursday when they host the Miami Heat. Needless to say, these injuries are worth paying attention to as we've already seen Cleveland cool off slightly, going just 3-4 ATS over its last seven games following an extended hot streak against the number.

After Thursday's game against the Heat, the Cavs will enjoy another couple of days off before hosting the Chicago Bulls on Sunday.

Playbook

At this time last week the Indiana Pacers biggest concern was a sagging offense that had played a major role in a five-game losing streak that ultimately would reach six before it was snapped last Wednesday against Washington.

We've certainly seen the Pacers step up their game offensively, however, scoring 100 points or more in five straight games. They've managed to win two of their last three contests, so the turnaround at that end of the floor has paid dividends.

Expect to see the Pacers continue to push the pace as they face four beatable Eastern Conference foes this week. Don't be surprised if their run of five consecutive 'overs' continues and they may be worth a shot against the number as well.
