NBA Betting – Wizards, Nets Still Stumbling

Gilbert ArenasWashington Wizards @ Philadelphia 76ers

Bodog Odds (Bodog Reviews): 76ers -5

The Washington Wizards continue to be one of the biggest train wrecks in the NBA. In the offseason, they looked like they would have plenty of promise considering Gilbert Arenas was getting healthy, Flip Saunders was hired as head coach and the team appeared to have more depth than in previous years.

Fast forward into January and the Wizards are just 10-21, in the midst of a four-game losing streak and on the verge of completely quitting not even halfway through the season because of chemistry issues.

There have been reports that Arenas pulled a gun on a teammate in a locker room brawl, which has distracted this team from playing basketball even more so.

On Tuesday, the Wizards will face the Philadelphia 76ers and considering the Wizards beat the Sixers last week, it should be Philadelphia’s turn this week.

The Wizards are a team that is just discombobulated right now. It’s hard to bet on them because they weren’t playing well before and now the team is the subject of league scrutiny because of the Arenas gun incident. The Sixers are also one of the worst teams in the Eastern Conference but this is a contest they can win.

Sportsbook Promos Pick: 76ers -5

Milwaukee Bucks @ New Jersey Nets
Sports Wager Odds: Bucks -1.5

The New Jersey Nets have still won just three games this year. The good news for them is that they are 1-1 in their last two games.

The Nets have been absolutely abysmal this year and might be on pace to set some records. The only bright spot for the Nets is that they will have another opportunity to win on Tuesday as they host the Milwaukee Bucks.

The Bucks are in a tier higher than the Nets but they clearly aren’t in the NBA elite. The Bucks have just 13 wins on the year and only three of which have been on the road. The Bucks are 3-11 away from home this year.

The more important trend may be the fact that the Bucks are sloping downward right now. They have lost seven of their last 10 games and are just 4-10 since they were last over .500 at 9-8.

Look for the Nets to eke out a close win on Tuesday, making it two in their last three.

Sports Betting Tip: Nets +1.5
