The Warriors have now won eight of their last 10 games but are just 5-5 against the spread during that same stretch. They're also 27-30 against the number on the season, which includes a losing mark on the road at 13-16 against the spread.

The Wizards have won seven of their last 10 games but dropped both of their games post-All-Star game. They're also just 4-6 against the spread over that 10-game stretch but are 32-25 against the number on the season and are 20-12 ATS at home.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

OUR PREDICTION: The All-Star break clearly hurt the Wizards' momentum. They went into the break having won four straight but came out of the long weekend losing back-to-back games to the 76ers and Jazz, respectively. Both games weren't close either, as the Sixers beat the Wizards by 8 and the Jazz routed Washington by 10. That said, I like the Wizards here. For starters, the Warriors played last night in Philadelphia, where Stephen Curry had a historically bad shooting night in Golden State's victory. The Warriors have also already clinched a playoff spot and the Wizards will be determined and focused not only to knock off the NBA Finals favorite, but also to get back on track after stumbling out of the break.
