Basketball betting on Saturday has an NBA-TV game as the Washington Wizards host the Charlotte Bobcats. Both teams are in back-to-back NBA betting situations as they Bobcats played at home last night versus Cleveland while Washington was in Miami. Here are some trends and stats to consider for this game between Charlotte and Washington.
Basketball betting has seen Charlotte win and cover six of the last ten against Washington in this series. The teams met four times a year ago and the Bobcats won three of the four both straight up and in basketball betting. The only Washington victory came at home by a score of 95-93. The Bobcats won the other game in Washington 92-89 and they won both home games by scores of 101-89 and 80-72 in NBA betting. The Bobcats have won three of the last five games at Washington in basketball betting.
Charlotte may not have a winning record straight up but they do have a winning record vs. the basketball betting odds. The Bobcats still play tough defense as they are 2nd in the league in fewest points allowed. They still can’t score though even with the addition of Stephen Jackson. It was expected that his addition would upgrade their offense and maybe in time he will help, but so far the offense is still poor and that hurts them in basketball betting.
Washington has not been a good team this season either straight up or against the NBA betting number. They have struggled in all phases of the game. It hasn’t helped that they have been hurt by injuries again. Antawn Jamison missed the early part of the season but he is back now so Washington should improve in basketball betting. Mike Miller is now out with an injury and Caron Butler has been dealing with injuries issues as well. Washington just can’t stay healthy and it really hurts them in terms of basketball betting. If they ever could get their players on the floor together they could be a team to watch in NBA betting. Gilbert Arenas leads the team in scoring and assists this basketball betting season.
This game should be very competitive in basketball betting since neither team is that strong. Taking the points might be the way to go in this basketball betting matchup and that would point you to the Bobcats on Saturday night.
