Feeling the Heat at Washington- NBA Betting

January 8th, 2018 NBA Basketball

NBA betting on Saturday includes an NBA-TV contest between the Miami Heat and Washington Wizards.

It is somewhat of a tough spot for the Heat in NBA betting considering this is the last game of a three-game road trip and they played last night at Charlotte.

NBA betting trends are somewhat mixed on this game. The Heat have won six of the last ten games between the two teams but they are just 5-5 against the NBA odds. The teams have split the last four meetings in Washington although the Heat are 3-1 against the NBA odds in those matchups. Miami has won all three of the previous meetings between the two teams this season and none of them were really competitive in terms of NBA betting odds.

The Heat have been below average against the NBA betting number on the road this season. Miami gets a lot more respect this season since Dwyane Wade leads the NBA in scoring as basketball betting stats show. Wade is a major force and can win games and impact the NBA betting odds. The Heat are also decent defensively and should be able to shutdown the Wizards in this game. The one wildcard in basketball betting could be Gilbert Arenas if he is back in the lineup as expected. Whether or not Arenas is in shape is another story but he could make an impact.

Washington has been a mess this season and the absence of Arenas is a big reason why. The Wizards have been very weak at home this season versus the NBA betting number. Washington has had all kinds of trouble scoring as they rank right near the bottom of the league as NBA betting statistics indicate. Washington is not a whole lot better on defense which is why taking the Wizards at anytime in NBA betting is always a risk. Antawn Jamison has led the team in scoring for much of the season, especially since Arenas and Caron Butler were injured.

The under in the last ten matchups between the two teams is 7-2-1 as NBA betting stats show. Three of the last four games at Washington have gone under the basketball betting total.

It is always nice to see your NBA betting action and that can be the case with this game since NBA-TV is televising the contest. opening an account at SBG Global today and begin your NBA betting.
