Washington Wizards Fantasy Spin

Bradley Beal scored a team-high 27 points against the Magic during a 95-91 win on Friday, adding six rebounds, seven assists, two steals and five 3-pointers in 37 minutes. Coming into this game, Beal was struggling in dimes with 3.7 in his previous three and treys with 1.3 in those three, so this strong game put those pointless concerns to bed. He's logging huge minutes, he's blocking shots more and he's even at 1.8 steals this month. Beal has everything you want from a top-15 player in nine-cat leagues, including a good late schedule.

San Antonio Spurs Fantasy Spin

LaMarcus Aldridge (sore left wrist) scored 28 points (12-of-20 FGs, 4-of-4 FTs) with 12 rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes on Saturday against the Pelicans. Aldridge played through some wrist pain, but fought through it and led the Spurs to a win without DeMar DeRozan (knee). They were able to limit his minutes on the front end of a back-to-back set, which bodes well for his status heading into Sunday's game. As long as LMA is able to tolerate any pain he's having, he'll be out there and should remain in your fantasy lineups.

NBA Betting Trends

Washington

The Wizards have covered the spread in six of their last seven games overall and are 4-0 ATS in their last four games coming off a win.

San Antonio

The Spurs are just 2-8 at the betting window in their last 10 games after scoring more than 125 points in their previous game.

Prediction

The Wizards are an abysmal 3-14-1 against the spread in their last 18 games in San Antonio and failed to cover the number in 21 of their previous 29 meetings with the Spurs overall. The favorite has also dominated this series, posting a 21-8 ATS record in the last 29 meetings while the home team is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings. The Wizards have not been a profitable road team, dropping 27 of their last 35 games against the spread away from Washington while the Spurs are 27-10 against the number in their last 37 home games.
