Stephen Nover Free Wednesday Play
Charlotte vs. Washington,
03/12/2014 19:00 EDT
Point Spread: +4½/-110 Charlotte
Washington is decent this season. Not good mind you, but they do have five above average players for the first time in a long while.
However, the Wizards are terrible in this type of situation - hosting a sub-.500 team at home. First off, the Wizards have been a money-burner at home covering just 40 percent at Verizon Center this season.
They have been at their worst at home when going against foes with a losing record where they have gone 2-9-1 ATS the past 12 times.
The Wizards are 8-2 in their last 10. Note, though, that only two of those victories were against current playoff teams and those teams were Toronto and Atlanta, which has lost 14 of its last 16.
The Bobcats have covered nearly 60 percent of the time when taking two or more points during the past 17 instances. They are highly motivated to earn their way into the playoffs and own the superior defense and best big man on the court, Al Jefferson. Charlotte also has Gerald Henderson back.
Both teams last played two nights ago. The Wizards lost to Miami by nine while the Bobcats won for the third time in their last four games defeating the Nuggets at home by seven. Charlotte is 8-2-1 ATS when playing on one day's rest.
