Online Basketball Betting: Washington Wizards vs. New Orleans Hornets

Online basketball betting has what at first glance appears to be a December 30 basketball betting mismatch between Washington and New Orleans.

Online basketball betting bettors can often get caught up in the mistake of not looking beyond the straight up records and into the overall basketball betting value of such pairings.  The Washington Wizards had an online basketball betting record of a rotten 4-23 straight up and 10-17 against the NBA betting odds.

So far the Wizards have gushed red ink and have not earned any online basketball betting value.  From December 11 through December 25 Washington continued their online basketball betting slump with a record of just 1-7 against the spread.

Washington was not a totally bad online basketball betting dog, however, as they were 10-12 against the spread.  In away basketball betting action the Wizards were 5-7 against the board with 8 of the 12 games going under the total.

In a dismal season of failure, Caron Butler has been one of the few online basketball betting highlights for the Wizards as he has averaged 21 points per game.  Antawn Jamison has also been a basketball betting asset with an average of 9.4 rebounds per game to lead the team.

The New Orleans Hornets have been something of an online basketball betting surprise as they have hung in there with San Antonio for the top spot in the Southwest division.

The Hornets have lost some value against the NBA betting odds recently however and they had an overall online basketball betting mark of 17-9 straight up but just 11-13-2 against the spread.  New Orleans has not been a great online basketball betting value at home as they were just 6-7-1 against the spread.

The online basketball betting strength of the Hornets has been their 2nd ranked defense.  Their offense, on the other hand, has been a liability and was ranked 25th.  Chris Paul is the Hornets offense as he was averaging 20 points per game scoring and a most impressive 11.3 assists per game.
