NBA Betting Trends

Washington

The Wizards are just 4-12 against the spread in their last 16 games as a road favorite and 3-12-1 ATS in their last 16 Tuesday games.

Charlotte

The Hornets are 3-7 against the spread in their last 10 games as an underdog, but 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games against a team with a winning percentage below .400.

Prediction:

Washington won the first meeting between these two, 125-118 at home on Nov. 22. The Wizards haven’t been playing well, but they have really faced a touch schedule over recent weeks. They have been up against the likes of the Clippers, Heat, 76ers, Magic, Lakers and Nuggets lately. They actually beat Philly and have won and covered against the Suns and Hornets. Charlotte has been losing, but to the likes of the Hawks, Nets, Suns and Bucks. Some good teams in there, but nothing like what Washington has been up against. I think the Wizards will be relishing a break from this tough schedule and could actually pick up some steam here in upcoming games.

NBA Prediction: Washington Wizards -2.5
