The best NBA game Wednesday night just might be the Charlotte Bobcats heading to Brooklyn to take on the Nets. Both teams are in the Eastern Conference playoffs fighting for seeding to avoid Miami in the first round. The squads are both streaking as well. It's been beneficial to be a Brooklyn bettor lately as they recently won ATS in 7 of 10 games. Their overall home record is an impressive 20-11 even if the ATS number is slightly lower at 18-13. Brooklyn had won 7 of 8 games straight up before a 94-101 loss in Washington and the hot streak was enough to bring the Nets to within 1 game of the #5 seed Washington Wizards.
Charlotte currently sits in the 7th spot in the Eastern Conference playoff chase where they're currently slated to face the Heat in the 1st round. The Bobcats would love to get out of that slot considering the 0-4 record they've posted against LeBron and the gang this season. The desire to move up is evident in Charlotte's play recently where they've won and covered the spread in 5 of 6 games.
Brooklyn benefits in the fatigue factor as they not only play at home but against a Charlotte team playing their 3rd game in 4 nights. Things got ugly the last time the two met at the Barclays Center as Paul Pierce's 25 points fueled a 105-89 Nets win. The spread in that game was Brooklyn -7.5 but the total turned out to be exactly on the 194 number resulting in a push.
Charlotte is 19-14-1 ATS on the road this season
Charlotte is 19-14-1 against the over/under on the road this season
