NBA FREE PICK: Take Washington. According to latest NBA trends, the Wizards are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games vs. a team with a losing home record, 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. loss and are 6-1-2 ATS in their last 9 games overall. Detroit is 3-7 ATS in their last 10 vs. Eastern Conference, 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games vs. a team with a losing S.U. record,  1-4 ATS in their last 5 games following a S.U. loss, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NBA Southeast, 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games and are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on one day of rest.

Both teams are struggling but few teams play as hard as Washington. Even with their injuries, they've covered two straight and four of their last six games. Detroit has lost six straight and has only covered one of those games. Jordan Crawford secured his second career triple-double in Tuesday's 100-95 loss to Atlanta and followed that up with 19 points against the Magic. Brandon Knight is Detroit's second-leading scorer with 14.5 points, but was just 1-for-10 from the floor and finished with two points against Toronto. He didn't fare much better versus Washington last season, averaging just 5.3 points in three games. Expect Nene to come through for the Wizards tonight as they cover and possibly win a rare road game.
