LAS VEGAS - Welcome to this Wednesday edition of the Daily Sports Betting Preview!

Today’s Preview kicks off with a look at the matchup between the Washington Wizards and the Golden State Warriors. Then, the Preview examines the PDC Premier League, where Peter Wright takes on Glen Durrant.

Finally, the Spring Sweet Spring #1 Regionals features a matchup between SKADE and AGF that could be a solid play for CS:GO bettors.

There’s a lot to cover, so let’s get started!

NBA Betting

The Golden State Warriors are shaping up to be one of the most important teams in the league during the final stretch of games.

This is in no small part due to Steph Curry, who has been an absolute supernova recently, inserting himself into the MVP conversation simply through elite scoring down the stretch.

Curry should be enough to make the difference in this matchup against the Washington Wizards, as the Warriors are road favorites over the Wizards.

Golden State Warriors vs. Washington Wizards Moneyline

  • Golden State Warriors -135
  • Washington Wizards +115

The Wizards are not a good team, but they aren’t an atrocious one either, with an overall record of 24-33, while the Warriors are 29-29.

At home, the Wizards are 13-16 overall, so they are a bit better at home than they are on the road. The Warriors, meanwhile, are 12-19 on the road, despite being a .500 team, meaning that they tend to underperform when playing away.

Golden State Warriors vs. Washington Wizards Spread

  • Golden State Warriors -2.5 (-105)
  • Washington Wizards +2.5 (-115)

The spread matches the moneyline, with Golden State being slightly favored, but not heavily, and with respect being paid to Washington and their home court advantage.

On the spread, the Wizards are 14-15 at home, while the Warriors are 12-19 on the road - Washington could cover this spread. NBA betting enthusiasts could go either way when it comes to this matchup, on both the moneyline and the spread.

This game airs at 7:00 p.m. EST, and will be available to watch on NBC Sports and NBA League Pass.

Darts Betting

In the PDC, Peter Wright reigns supreme. The current PDC World Champion is known for his elite level of play as much as he is known for his flamboyant haircut. Today, Wright faces off against Glen Durrant, the winner of the 2020 PDC Premier League, and a worthy challenger.

Still, the sportsbooks see Wright as a notable favorite in the matchup given his elite talent level.

Peter Wright vs. Glen Durrant Moneyline

  • Peter Wright -950
  • Glen Durrant +450

Durrant has only been playing in the PDC for a few years, beginning in 2019, with most of his career taking place in the BDO. He was an outstanding player in the BDO, winning three consecutive World Championships, but that’s still not a resume that equals Wright’s.

Peter Wright vs. Glen Durrant Spread

  • Peter Wright -3.5 (-110)
  • Glen Durrant +3.5 (-120)

The spread on this matchup ends up sitting Wright as a -3.5 favorite over Durrant, although there is some shading on this line.

The shading ends up putting Durrant +3.5 as a favorite over Wright -3.5 by a slight amount. Darts betting fans could look for the potential upset from Durrant, a player who can still surprise people.

This match airs at 4:30 p.m. EST, and will be broadcast via DAZN in the United States.

Esports Betting

The Spring Sweet Spring #1 Regionals are in progress, and SKADE is set to take on AGF in one of the matchups this round.

SKADE has been on a run recently, winning all five of their last five matches, including in the first rounds of this tournament. They’re ranked far higher than their opponents when it comes to that, as they are ranked #56 by ESL and #30 by HLTV.

AGF, meanwhile, is ranked #86 by ESL, and is unranked by HLTV, which only ranks the top 30 teams.

SKADE vs. AGF Moneyline

  • SKADE -475
  • AGF +310

The moneyline reflects this discrepancy fairly well, with SKADE as serious favorites with -475 odds to win the matchup.

These teams have not played before, but AGF has been on quite a run of their own, defeating Nordavind and UoL in recent matchups. Still, they don’t seem to have faced down an opponent on SKADE’s level yet, and that should give Skade an advantage.

SKADE vs. AGF Spread

  • SKADE -1.5 (-140)
  • AGF +1.5 (+110)

Indeed, SKADE is favored to win this matchup 2-0, as opposed to any other option. Given that this is a best of three matchup, a spread of SKADE -1.5 can only be covered by a SKADE sweep.

The fact that SKADE has -140 odds to accomplish this is telling in terms of what the online sportsbooks expect the result to be. Esports betting fans should prepare for a SKADE victory, but the spread is a compelling wager in this matchup.

This match airs at 12:15 p.m. EST, and will be broadcast on Twitch.tv.

Good luck!
