The NBA season is approaching the All-Star break, but there are still two more days of action before teams take a breather. On Wednesday night, public consensus favors the Brooklyn Nets more than any other team on the board. The James Harden and Kyrie Irving-led Nets look like a legitimate NBA title contender while the Houston Rockets are floundering.

Brooklyn accounts for 95% of the total handle on the spread line and 93% of the total handle on the moneyline despite the fact that they are -455. This should come as no surprise when we consider the fact that the Nets have won nine out of 10 and this will be Harden’s first time facing his former team. It’s also worth noting that the Rockets are on a 12-game losing streak as well.

The public is also in love with the Charlotte Hornets. Charlotte is raking in 92% of the total handle on the spread line and the moneyline. They are a one-point favorite against the Minnesota Timberwolves, a team that is stocked with talent but still can’t seem to win games.

And the running theme with NBA betting this year continues. Every single game except one on Wednesday is seeing more action on the over when it comes to the total. The Portland Trail Blazers vs. Golden State Warriors game is the only matchup where more cash is on the under than the over. The total for that game is set to 235.5.
