NBA Basketball Betting: Washington Wizards vs. Boston Celtics

NBA basketball betting Friday includes the best and the worst of the East as Washington visits Boston in a NBA betting mismatch.

NBA basketball betting handicappers should take note, however, that the Wizards will get added value from the NBA betting oddsmakers.  The question is whether it will be enough to get the cash?  NBA basketball betting on the Washington Wizards is a hard sell, even with those extra points that they will get from the basketball betting odds makers in order to attract action their way.

So far this season there hasn’t seemed to be a number big enough for Washington to consistently come in under.  The Wizards had a NBA basketball betting record of 5-23 straight up and 11-17 against the spread.  Washington had a road NBA basketball betting mark of 5-7 against the spread and went under in 8 of those 12 games.

Washington was creeping close to break even as a NBA basketball betting dog with a mark of 10-12 against the line.  After a 7 game losing streak against the NBA betting board the Wizards covered their next two games on December 25 & 27.

Washington brings no NBA basketball betting strength on either side of the court as they ranked 23rd overall on offense while ranking 21st overall on defense.  The Wizards top NBA betting asset has been Caron Butler who was averaging 21 points per game scoring.  Antawn Jamison led Washington in rebounds with over 9 per game.

The Boston Celtics had a terrible start against the NBA basketball betting board despite a stellar straight up record.  The Celtics began to get a lot of their value back in December, however, as they went 8-6 that month against the basketball betting odds.  Boston was 15-13 against the spread as a NBA basketball betting favorite.

The Celtics do not have a NBA basketball betting weakness as they were ranked 8th overall on offense and 3rd overall on defense.

Paul Pierce led team in scoring with an average of 18 points per game while Kevin Garnett continued to be one of the most valuable assets in NBA basketball betting as he led Boston in rebounds with an average of 9 per game. is your ultimate home of pro hoops action, open an account now!
