It’s pretty simple. Find out who wins on the road in each sport and you’ll find out who’s going to win you some money.

In the NBA, the team with the best road record, the Celtics (20-8), are 33-21 ATS (61%) overall and an impressive 17-10 ATS (63%) on the road.

The Lakers hold the best road ATS mark (21-9, 70%) followed by the Magic (22-11, 66%), Hornets (17-9, 65%) and Celtics.

Not surprisingly, all six division leaders — except Utah (12-16) — have winning marks away from home and those six are all among the best moneymakers in the NBA.

This form also holds in the NHL also where several teams actually play better on enemy ice than in their own home buildings. The Sharks (17-8 ATS), Canadiens (18-13), Flyers (17-13) and Coyotes (17-14) all are moneymakers on the road. And the Red Wings (20-10), Stars (18-15) and Senators (16-12) have all been profitable for their backers.
