15* NBA Friday Undervalued Underdog on Washington Wizards +7
Denver vs. Washington,
01/20/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 108 - 104
Point Spread: +7/-105 Washington
The Washington Wizards are showing solid value as a big home underdog to the Denver Nuggets tonight. The Wizards have played much better of late after a very slow start. Washington is coming off a huge 105-102 home win over the Western Conference-leading Oklahoma City Thunder. That victory showed what they are capable of, and I look for the Wizards to come in with a lot of confidence against the Nuggets tonight.
The Nuggets are off to a solid 10-5 start, but they are only outscoring opponents by 5.6 points/game this season, including 4.0 points/game on the road. The Wizards are only getting outscored by 5.1 points/game at home. There is at least a couple points of value with the home underdog tonight.
This is also a huge look-ahead spot for the Nuggets, who will be playing their 3rd game in 4 days. Denver plays New York tomorrow. The Nuggets have several players on their team that were in a blockbuster trade that sent Carmelo Anthony to New York. These Denver players certainly want revenge on their former team, and will be looking forward to that tomorrow. Roll with the Wizards Friday.
