TOM STRYKER’S FREE NBA BASKETBALL SELECTION FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 22ND
#514 CHARLOTTE (-) over Washington at 7:05 PM EST
After limping into the All-Star break off a pair of SU and ATS road losses to the Pacers and Magic, the Hornets will get back on track on Friday night with a solid performance against the visiting Wizards. Washington slipped into intermission on a dismal 3-7 SU (3-5-2 ATS) run and it will have issues in this division war.
A quick glance at the history in this series shows that Charlotte has dropped the last two meetings both SU and ATS. Thankfully, when taking the court at home off back-to-back SU and ATS losses, the Hornets have been at their financial best inking a rewarding 61-41-2 ATS record including a sound 50-30-2 ATS in this set provided they are rested. With those two parameters live and Charlotte competing against an opponent that holds a team won/loss percentage of .400 or better, this team trend jets to a reliable 40-20-2 ATS.
Backing the Wizards on the road can be hazardous to your wallet too. On foreign courts, Washington is currently riding a ridiculous 8-33 SU and 9-30-2 ATS mark in its last 41 tries including a horrible 3-24 SU and 4-21-2 ATS provided its opponent carries a team won/loss percentage of .455 or better. In addition, when holding a team won/loss percentage of .401 or better and matched up against a division foe, the Wizards have lost their magic notching a woeful 42-66-4 ATS record provided their opponent enters off a SU and ATS loss. If Washington is running against a rested foe, this team trend falls to a pitiful 26-50-4 ATS.
Resting uncomfortably at No. 7 in the Eastern Conference standings, the Hornets need to get the second-half of the season started off on the right foot in order to stay in the thick of the playoff race. A revenge win over the Wizards will do the trick. Take Charlotte. Thanks and best of luck, Tom.
