Betting Lines: Golden State Warriors (-5.5) vs. Charlotte Bobcats (O/U: 195)
Game time: 10:00 a.m. AEDT

Cats are dogs by 5.5 points at home? The books are severely underrating Charlotte here. The Warriors are the better team but these cats should challenge them all the way. Moreover, the Bobcats have lost 14 straight against West teams this season… A stat that is worthy of whiteboard material in Charlotte’s locke room.

Yes, Stephen Curry (22.5 PPG and 8.9 APG) and Klay Thompson (20.9 PPG) are tough covers but the Bobcats can do some damage with Al Jefferson (15.9 PPG and 9.1 RPG) too…

Pick: Warriors ATS, Under 195
Prediction: Golden State Warriors 98, Charlotte Bobcats 94

Golden State Warriors Trends
- Warriors are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. East teams
- Warriors are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games vs. Southeast division teams
- Warriors are 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 games on the road

Charlotte Bobcats Trends
- Bobcats are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games
- Bobcats are 14-37-1 ATS in their last 52 games vs. West teams
- Bobcats are 0-7 ATS in their last 7 games vs. Pacific division teams

Betting Lines: Denver Nuggets (-2) vs. Washington Wizards (O/U: 200.0)
Game time: 10:00 a.m. AEDT

Same with the Bobcats, the books are not paying attention much to the Wizards, which have won five of their last seven games. This basically shows that they have been competitive in recent weeks. The two losses came against the Indiana Pacers (expected) and an OT home loss to the Milwaukee Bucks.

It’s going to be a sweet battle between the league’s rising point guards in Ty Lawson and John Wall and the latter always plays against “premier” PGs in the NBA.

Denver Nuggets Trends
- Nuggets are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games on the road
- Nuggets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games vs. the Wizards
- Nuggets are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games after a 1-day rest

Washington Wizards Trends
- Wizards are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games vs. Northwest division teams
- Wizards are 22-9-1 ATS in their last 32 games vs. West teams
- Wizards are 24-11 ATS in their last 35 games at home

Pick: Wizards ATS, Under 200.0
