Basketball Betting: Washington Wizards vs. Detroit Pistons

Basketball betting includes an Eastern Conference pairing of Detroit and Washington. NBA basketball betting fans should look beyond the obvious here.

Basketball betting has not been profitable on the Washington Wizards this season as you would expect with a team that was a disastrous 4-16 straight up.  Yet the Wizards have had better NBA basketball betting value than the straight up number indicates.

Basketball betting handicappers would also be surprised that Washington, from December 2 through December 11, went on a strong NBA basketball betting stretch in which they were 5-1 against the spread.  The Wizards had an overall mark of 9-11 against the basketball betting odds, which included an even 4-4 split in road action.

The Wizards were also an even 4-4 basketball betting split on the road over/under board for the season.  Washington was a middle of the pack NBA basketball betting offensive team, ranking 15th.  The Wizards basketball betting weakness was their 27th ranked defense.

Caron Butler has been a bright spot for Washington with an average of 22 points per game to lead the team.  Basketball betting value has not been good for Detroit, especially as of late.

From November 20 through December 12 the Pistons went on a basketball betting stretch in which they were just 3-7 against the spread, including 4 consecutive basketball betting failures on the tail end of that string.  Detroit had an overall record of 12-9 straight up but just 9-12 against the basketball betting odds.

The Pistons had an over/under basketball betting home record of 4-6 under the total.  Detroit’s basketball betting problem was their 23rd ranked offense.  Their defense has been more impressive to basketball betting fans as it ranked 13th overall in the league.

The acquisition of Allen Iverson has not done much to lift the Pistons so far as they look to be a class beneath the Cleveland Cavaliers, who they trail for the top spot in the Central Division standings.  Iverson was averaging just under 6 assists per game and has not been dominant.
