4* NBA *BEST BET*
Charlotte vs. Washington,
04/23/2012 19:00 EDT,
Score: 73 - 101
Point Spread: +10½/-107 Charlotte
4* NBA *BEST BET* on Bobcats +10.5
The Bobcats are the worst team in the NBA and quite possibly the worst team ever. They need a win in one of their final three games to avoid the NBA's all-time worst winning percentage. With Orlando and New York up next, this is their best chance to avoid falling into the history books for all the wrong reasons. I expect Charlotte to go after this game hard.
Fading Washington as a favorite has been a very strong play this season. According to the closing line, the Wizards have been favored 10 times this season going 3-7 ATS in those games, including 0-6 ATS in their last 6. In other words, this is not a team that can be trusted laying points, especially this many.
The Wizards have won 3 in a row with 2 of those wins coming against the Bulls and Heat but it should be noted that Deng and Rose weren't in the lineup for the Bulls and Bosh and James didn't suit up for the Heat (Wade only played 2 minutes before leaving with an injury).
We'll take the points.
