Basketball betting odds on Friday have the New Jersey Nets favored at home against the Charlotte Bobcats.
This is a rare home and home situation in NBA betting as the two teams meet again in Charlotte tomorrow night. Let’s take a look at this basketball betting matchup for Friday.
Basketball betting history shows that the Nets have won 7 of the last 10 meetings against the two teams but they are only 5-5 against the basketball odds. New Jersey has won three of the past five home games against the Bobcats and they are 3-2 against the basketball betting odds in those games.
New Jersey has been right around the .500 mark this season as basketball betting statistics show and it is mainly because of their offense. Vince Carter and Devin Harris have teamed up to make for a potent guard tandem, ranking 1st in the NBA as a duo in scoring as basketball betting stats show. The problem for the Nets is that Carter is oftentimes inconsistent as he has been his entire career and New Jersey does not play good enough defense to have any lapses.
Charlotte has a poor record straight up but they have been a basketball betting pointspread success so far this season. Their offense is weak but their defense usually keeps them in games, especially against the NBA betting number. The trade of Jason Richardson to Phoenix upgraded that defense even more since Boris Diaw and Raja Bell are solid defenders. Charlotte is not a team you want to face defensively and that is why many of their games go under the basketball betting total. This basketball betting matchup should be interesting as New Jersey can score while Charlotte can defend.
The over is 7-2-1 against the basketball betting number in the last ten games between the two teams. At New Jersey, the over is 4-1 in the last five meetings as NBA betting stats show.
