Bet Golden State Warriors Vs Washington Wizards Hoops

Written by on February 2, 2016

No team in the era of the 82-game NBA season has ever been able to end the season with losses in the single digits. The 1998 Chicago Bulls came the closest, going 72-10 that year. The Golden State Warriors are currently on pace to beat that record, but still have a lot of work to do in order to post that magical number. They will continue their quest on Wednesday.

How to bet Golden State Warriors Vs Washington Wizards

When: Wednesday, February 3, 8 PM ESTWhere: Verizon Center, Washington DCTV: ESPNRadio: KNBRTV Stream: WatchESPNThe Warriors are pretty much always considered a pretty safe bet when playing straight up, but that often means taking pretty short odds to get the win. This is certainly not an easy game for them, though, and the Wizards might well be a good bet to cover. The full odds and lines for this one will be up at the NBA betting page as soon as they go live.

Why bet on the Golden State Warriors

As I mentioned at the start of this piece, the Warriors (44-4) are very much on pace to end the season with single-digit losses, which would of course be an NBA record. This is not going to be easy to accomplish, as injuries and off nights could well derail their record-setting efforts. They had one of those off nights over the weekend when they struggled to knock off the hapless Philadelphia 76ers. While it was not their best effort, they still managed to get the win, and then followed that up with a much more convincing win on the road in New York. The Warriors have won 4-straight on the road, and while all 4 of their losses this season have come away from home, they are still 18 games above .500 in road games. The Warriors are averaging 115.9 PPG, and are giving up 102.3 PPG.

Why bet on the Washington Wizards

It may not yet be a season to remember for the Wizards (22-25), but they still have a lot to play for in the Eastern Conference, as they are just 3 games out of the final playoff spot. This is a team that has been underachieving all season long, but which definitely has the personnel to pull themselves out of the hole they are currently in. The Wizards are just 4-6 in their last 10 games, but the teams that they have beaten during that stretch have all been very good ball clubs. Washington seem to be in a situation where they play to the level of their opponent, which may serve them well in this one. The Wizards are averaging 102.2 PPG, and are giving up 105.0 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

This is a game that has the potential to turn into a bit of a shootout, which should make it one that is incredibly entertaining to watch. Games that go that route, though, tend to favor the high scoring Warriors, so I give them the nod here.Golden State Warriors 115 Washington Wizards 98
