Even though the Hornets are favored in basketball betting odds, the trends support the Wizards in this game. Let’s take a closer look at the game between New Orleans and Washington.
Bet on basketball trends show that New Orleans and Washington have split their last 10 meeting overall but the Wizards are 7-3 against the basketball odds in those games. At Washington, the Wizards have won four of the last five games against the Hornets as bet on basketball stats show. The Hornets defeated Washington in New Orleans back in December by a score of 97-85 but they did not cover the bet on basketball pointspread as they were laying 14.5 points.
The Hornets have struggled on the road this season versus the bet on basketball pointspread. Their defense is solid, ranking in the Top 5 in the league as basketball betting stats show but their offense is weak. Chris Paul and David West can score but overall they don’t have a lot of offensive firepower. More often than not the Hornets are able to win the close games though in bet on basketball action and that is why they can be a factor in the Western Conference come playoff time.
Washington has been a disaster versus the bet on basketball number this season. They have been horrible at home and on the road versus the basketball odds. Their offensive numbers are near the bottom of the league as bet on basketball stats show and their defense is not much better. Antawn Jamison and Caron Butler are solid players but far too often they get no help and the Wizards get blown out versus the bet on basketball odds. Missing Gilbert Arenas has not helped the Wizards’ chances in basketball betting this season.
Seven of the last ten games between the two teams have gone under the bet on basketball total. The Wizards have been an over team at home this season and an under team on the road as bet on basketball stats indicate while New Orleans more often than not goes under the total.
