One of the great NBA betting online ironies is that the best teams are often bad values. Past Los Angeles Laker teams immediately come to mind. As they were hanging championship banners nearly every year LA busted bankrolls along the way. Seems like the Golden State Warriors are now in the same predicament. As defending NBA champions Golden State gets plenty of public love. Add to that the Association’s best player in Stephen Curry and the spotlight gets brighter. This year the Warriors boast the NBA’s best record. Consequently, Golden State has been bet beyond reason.

In their last game Washington scored a 109-104 home cover vs. Philadelphia. Breaking out with 24 points per game has been Bradley Beal. Coming off his first All Star Game appearance Beal is primed for many more to follow. Furthermore the 24 year old guard has emerged as a reliable quarterback for the Wizards. Defensively the Wizards are middle of the pack in the Association.
Team vs. Team
Head to head the Wizards have had the recent Sportsbook advantage. Washington has paid out in three of their last four with Golden State. Over the total has paid in three of the last five meetings.

Matchup to Watch
As bad as the Warriors have been as a NBA Betting Online value the Wizards have lacked value at home. In addition, the inconsistent Washington defense is unlikely to slow down the top ranked Golden State attack. Curry and Beal make for a great matchup of guards. However, Curry has the undeniable edge and superior supporting cast. If there is a spot where the defending champs bring value this could be it.
