It's rare for an NBA team to
shoot above 50.0% and it's one angle to utilize as a NBA
handicapper. When checking NBA boxscores, pay attention
to red-hot shooting clubs that just shoot 55.0% or more
from the field. That's because there is a great chance
the team will go cold next time they hit the hardwood
providing a good 'Go-Against' play.
Since 2012, 'Playing-Against' teams after dropping 55.0% of their shots through the iron the previous effort has produced a 273-271-8 record against the betting line (49.5%). Not exactly the Midas Touch of NBA handicappping. However, if we focus solely on 'Playing-Against' an un-rested FAVORITE after dropping 55.0% of their shots the hit rate improves to 57.7% (30-22 ATS).
Although, winning 57.7% in sports handicapping is considered success, it's possible to improve the hit rate to a whopping 76.7% by 'Playing-Against' an un-rested 'FAVORITE' after dropping 55.0% of their shots playing a rested team as it becomes a money-making 23-7 ATS.
It's important to remember that the rarity of that last angle requires patience waiting for the right moment but given the hit rate paying attention can pays off handsomely.
