Giddy up, BetUS NBA basketball betting nation – there’s a new sheriff in town! After being on top of the ATS standings for the past 10 weeks, the Utah Jazz now have been supplanted as the top NBA Week 13 ATS team in the league. Not only that, but one other surprising ballclub has catapulted into the ATS top five as well. The 2020-21 NBA regular season is rolling into its second week of post all-star break action.

5. New York Knicks (22-17 ATS)
Julius Randle and the New York Knicks (20-19) bounced back nicely from their 134-101 drubbing against the Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday to beat Oklahoma City 119-97 on Saturday. New York is 5-2 SU and ATS over its last seven games heading into the new week. The Knicks have covered the spread an identical 11 times at home and on the road. New York’s league-leading defense (105.0 ppg) has held three of its last 10 opponents to fewer than 100 points.
4. Memphis Grizzlies (20-14 ATS)
Ja Morant and the Memphis Grizzlies (17-18) have dropped two straight heartbreakers, including a 128-122 road loss at Oklahoma City on Sunday.

3. Philadelphia 76ers (21-16-1 ATS)
Philly (26-12) has won and covered the spread five straight heading into Monday night’s action and now sits atop the NBA Eastern Conference standings. The Philadelphia Sixers laid emphatic 134-99 smackdown on the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday night – without all-star center Joel Embiid. Philadelphia has gone a blistering 7-1 SU and ATS over its last eight. The 76ers are 14-6 ATS at home this season. More importantly, Philadelphia has the look of a team prepared to challenge everyone for the Eastern Conference crown this season.
2. Utah Jazz (25-13 ATS)
In the words of the immortal Scooby Doo. Ruh roh! Are things about to unravel for Utah (28-9) as we move further into the second half of the season? Right now, it looks that way. Once, 25-9 ATS prior to March 1, Utah has gone 0-4 ATS over its last four while losing three times. Donovan Mitchell and the Jazz were on the wrong end of a 131-119 road loss against the Golden State Warriors on Sunday night. Bare in mind, the Jazz are just 11-9 ATS on the road this season. Stay tuned.
1. Phoenix Suns (25-12 ATS)
Chris Paul and the Phoenix Suns (25-12) had their five game SU and ATS winning streaks snapped in Saturday’s 122-111 road loss against the Indiana Pacers. No matter, Phoenix has gone an incendiary 8-2 SU and ATS over its last 10 as the top NBA Week 13 ATS team in the league. Devin Booker and company have scored 120 points or more five times over their last 10 while putting 130 or more on the scoreboard twice. Phoenix is 13-5 ATS on the road and 12-7 ATS at home. Best of all, the Suns look like a legitimate NBA Championship contender. At the very least, they’ll reach the Western Conference Finals.
