NBA Betting – Midseason Odds on Almost Everything!

HawksMilsapLessTallThe NBA returns from its All-Star hiatus on Thursday. The first part of the year was full of surprises, from the upstart Hawks rolling to a 43-11 record to the disappointing Nuggets sitting 13 games below .500.

Each team has roughly 30 games left and there are numerous pressing questions still to be answered, questions like:
