NBA Betting: Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Washington Wizards

NBA betting for Saturday includes two stiffs as the Thunder and Wizards meet in an online basketball betting matchup of last place teams.

NBA betting handicappers realize that there are always great online basketball betting opportunities, no matter how unappealing a game may at first appear.  Despite being one of the worst teams in pro basketball the Oklahoma City Thunder has plenty of NBA betting merit, as surprising as that may be.

Oklahoma City had an overall NBA betting record of a hopeless 3-24 straight up but a profitable 15-12 against the NBA betting lines.  Better yet the Thunder had a road NBA betting record of a staggering 10-3 against the spread.  For good measure the Thunder had a strong over/under NBA betting run of 9-4 over the total in road action this year.

From November 29 through December 19 the Thunder went on a nice online basketball betting run in which they got the cash in 7 out of 10 games.  Oklahoma City’s ultimate NBA betting lesson is that when a team is at its absolute worst appeal with the overall general public, they often bring the most value on the board.

OKC is getting a lot of added value from the linemakers trying to balance their books and attract action the Thunder’s way against their more attractive opponents.  Kevin Durant was one of the few positives for Oklahoma City this season as he led the team in scoring with an average of 23 points per game.

The Washington Wizards, on the other hand, have had little to offer NBA betting fans.  Washington had an overall NBA betting record of just 4-20 straight up and 9-15 against the NBA betting lines.

Just when fans began to think that Washington would bring some NBA betting value after a 5 game payoff streak from December 2 through December 9, the Wizards went right back into the online basketball betting tank as they lost 5 consecutive games against the spread from December 11 through December 19.

Washington had a home NBA betting mark of just 5-9 against the spread with an over/under mark of 7-6-1 over the total as a host.
