Basketball betting on Friday has the Golden State Warriors hosting the Washington Wizards in a game that can be seen on ESPN.
It is the third game of a four-game road trip for the Wizards. They finish up the NBA betting trip at Phoenix tomorrow.
Basketball betting favors the Warriors on Friday since they have done well in this series at home against Washington. They have won the last three and 12 of 18 at home against the Wizards. Overall though, the teams have split their last ten meetings. Since they are in difference conferences they usually only play twice a year, home and away. Last season it was each team winning at home in basketball betting blowouts. The Warriors won 119-98 at home while the Wizards won 124-100 on their home court. Four of the last five games in this series have gone over in NBA betting.
Washington has not been a good team in basketball betting this season. They are poor at home and on the road versus the NBA betting number. One of the things you can count on with Washington though is that they play low scoring games on the road in basketball betting. The Wizards have been going under the total most of the time in their games away from home. Washington has a below average offense and their defense is nothing special either so it is hard to take Washington with any confidence in basketball betting. That could be why more people are looking to play the basketball betting totals in Wizards games.
Golden State has not done very well straight up this season but they are still a consideration versus the basketball betting odds, especially at home. The Warriors have been a basketball betting pointspread success so far this season in home games. It is all offense for Golden State as they are in the Top 5 in the league while ranking at the bottom of the league in defense as basketball betting stats show. Golden State’s plan is to outscore teams and most of the time it does not work in basketball betting. Monta Ellis has been leading the team in scoring but Golden State doesn’t play any defense so it really doesn’t matter how many points they score. Head coach Don Nelson seems to have given up on this team so it is hard to figure out Golden State in NBA betting.
