It's understood that NBA teams play a lot of back-to-back games and are at a disadvantage when facing a rested team. Heading into the 2016-17 All-Star Break teams playing without rest facing a rested team have won 37.7% of their games (88-145 SU). Even adding the great equalizer (spread) teams in the situation are not exactly best bets going 109-118-6 (46.7%) against the betting line.
Such numbers have not been limited to recent times. Going back to the 2013-14 campaign team playing with little shut-eye running the hardwood against a rested team have won 40.9% of their games (556-803 SU) cashing tickets 50.4% of the time. (676-660-3 ATS) still well under the long term 52.38% break-even rate needed to be successful in this business.

However, Terps 7-1 SU/ATS L8 away scoring 74.8 PPG and 13-3-2 ATS vs. the Big Ten are worth a second look facing a Badger team losing its way offensively recently netting just 58.5 points/game last two.
