Golden State Warriors vs. Washington Wizards

Golden State a Potential Betting on NBA Games Overlay at Washington?

January 24th, 2019 NBA Basketball, Sportsbook

Despite not being a top playoff contender and having a losing record Washington has been an improved wagering value recently.  With one of the top offenses in the NBA the Wizards can stay within the number for betting on NBA Games.  In fact, Bradley Beal makes the Wizards a threat to get the money regardless of opposition.  Golden State has the opposite problem in that they win so much the betting public drives down their value.  Few teams are bigger overlays on the board in any sport.  In the same way their prolific offense is a draw to gamblers.

Warriors vs. Wizards TV Coverage:  TNT

Golden State Warriors

As two-time defending champion Golden State is the most popular team for betting on NBA Games with.  Certainly, the Warriors simply have too much casual money flowing their way due to making the Finals four consecutive years.  Golden State is 32-14 straight up, 20-25-1 vs. the line, and 25-21 over the total.  Owing to that record the Warriors are running away with the Pacific Division.  NBA metrics have the champs ranked first for scoring offense but 19th for points allowed.  Late this has been Golden State’s best stretch with just three board losses in their last 10 games.

Washington Wizards

Due to their utter lack of sportsbook appeal Washington has covered seven of their last nine games.  And three of their last five went over the total.  Overall the Wizards are 19-26 straight up, 19-26 against the spread, and 26-19 over the total. Head coach Scott Brooks leads the NBA’s ninth ranked scoring offense.  But that is offset by the 29th ranked defense.  As a result, the Wizards are barely ahead of Orlando for third place in the Southeast Division standings.  Brooks is struggling to gain the playoffs for the third straight year.

Stats to Consider

Golden State has been a reliable road team for most of this season.  Consider the Warriors have covered eight of their last 12 away games.  Five of their last six road tilts cleared the total.  Balanced against that is Washington’s good recent value at home.  In fact, the Wizards have paid in six of their last seven games at Capital One Arena.  Three of their last four home contests went under the total.

Team vs. Team

Despite being the superior champion Golden State has struggled with betting value against Washington.  The Wizards have covered four of the last six games between these two teams.  Three of the last four went over the total.  But at Capital One Arena the Warriors have shown better.  To illuminate Golden State has paid in five of their last eight visits to Washington.  The last two games between these teams at DC went under the total.

Matchup to Watch

Naturally the dynamic duo of Stephen Curry and Kevin Durant give Golden State a big betting on NBA Games matchup advantage.  Curry and Durant are both averaging over 28 points per game.  And Klay Thompson is a third threat with 22 points per outing.
