They are also the league’s top rebounding team at 48.8 per game. Defensively, the Bucks allow just 107.3 points per game while limiting opponents to 43.1 percent shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading the team with 26.4 points, 12.6 rebounds and 5.9 assists per contest. Khris Middleton is adding 17.4 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.
Wizards tough at home
Washington is coming off a 107-89 win at home over the Pacers. They have covered the spread in three straight home games. The Wizards are now 22-29 on the season, 15-9 at home, 23-28 against the spread and 29-22 with the over.
The Wizards have struggled defensively this season, giving up 115.3 points per game while opponents shoot 47.4 percent against them. Offensively, Washington is putting up 112.7 points per game while shooting 46.5 percent as a team. Otto Porter Jr. is questionable to play tonight due to a toe injury.

NBA Betting Trends
The Bucks are 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six road games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games playing on 1 day of rest.
The Wizards are 8-1 against the spread in their last nine home games and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 conference games.
The Wizards have played the Bucks tough already this season, picking up a 113-106 win at home on Jan. 11. The Wizards are one of the top cover teams at home this season, going 16-8 against the spread. Milwaukee certainly is one of the best teams overall in the league, but I like the Wizards to give them a game tonight. Washington has been playing some of its better basketball over the last month and not been an easy out, especially at home.
