There are currently 11 teams eliminated from the NBA playoff race. Combined, the league’s bottom dwellers have gone 281-577 (32.8%) straight-up this season. Despite struggling to win games, the NBA’s worst teams have covered the spread in nearly 50% of their match-ups (409-431-18 ATS).

 

Bettors know the Atlanta Hawks and Phoenix Suns are actively tanking, but have not been able to profit from their futility. Until now. Once the calendar flips to April, it is easy to bet against teams eliminated from the playoffs and win if you know what to look for.

Using Bet Labs, I’ve found a winning betting system for fading eliminated playoff teams that has two matches on Wednesday (7:00 p.m. ET and 7:30 p.m. ET).
