Washington and Philly are on the front end of this trend today. They play in Washington tomorrow.— Jonathan Von Tobel (@meJVT) January 8, 2019
Oklahoma City & San Antonio will start a home-and-home on Thursday in OKC which ends Saturday in San Antonio.
The Sixers took care of business against the Wizards on Tuesday night in Philly, and now they travel to Washington to play the second game. If history repeats itself and this trend continues, Washington will both win and cover tonight since teams in their situation have yet to lose a game this year. The trend is even stronger for teams that lose on the road in the first game and then play at home in the second.
The Wizards currently sit at +3 on FanDuel Sportsbook, a line you might think is low until you see this stat.
#Sixers and #Wizards played last night in Philly. Sixers won by 17. They play again tonight in D.C. My gut tells me it’s hard to beat the same group of grown men and pro #NBA players two days in a row. May make my first NBA play of 2029 on @WashWizards MoneyLine #MatlockMoney— Matlock NCAAB (@MatlockCaller) January 9, 2019
The Thunder and the Spurs are approaching a home and home later this week as well, so after keeping on eye on the Wizards, it would be wise to turn your attention to that impending two-game series.
With so many potential matchups like this throughout the rest of the year and in coming years with the new NBA scheduling, this could turn into quite the profitable trend if it continues over a larger sample size.
