Bet on Wizards vs. Suns

Washington has been one of the best in the East for quite a while, but the Wizards are playing down right now. They have struggled to cover against some shaky teams lately and now they head to Phoenix to play a surging Suns team. Phoenix has covered in four straight at home and I like the Suns to cover again tonight.
