Wizards drop fiver straight
Washington is riding a five-game losing streak entering tonight, including a 113-108 loss at home to Miami on Saturday and a 124-106 loss against the Lakers on Tuesday. The Wizards are 30-45 on the season, 8-29 on the road, 35-40 against the spread and 45-29 with the over.
The Wizards are a pretty solid offensive team, averaging 114.3 points per game while shooting 47 percent as a team. Defensively, Washington is giving up 116.9 points per game while allowing opponents to shoot 47.7 percent. Trevor Ariza is listed as doubtful to play against his former team tonight. He is averaging 14.3 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Bradley Beal is leading the team with 25.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 5.6 assists per contest.
Suns also on a skid
Phoenix has lost four straight coming into tonight, including a 125-92 loss at Utah on Monday night. The Suns are now 17-58 on the season, 10-26 at home, 34-41 against the spread and 43-32 with the under.
The Suns are a poor defensive team like Washington, as they are giving up 116.1 points per game while opponents shoot 48.1 percent against them. Offensively, Phoenix is putting up just 106.7 points per game while shooting 45.6 percent. Josh Jackson is questionable to play tonight while Tyler Johnson, Kelly Oubre Jr. and T.J. Warren are already sporting injuries that have them out. Devin Booker is leading the team with 26.2 points and 6.7 assists per game. Deandre Ayton is adding 16.3 points and 10.2 rebounds per contest.
NBA Betting Trends
The Wizards are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games against Western Conference opponents, but just 13-34 ATS in their last 47 road games.
The Suns are 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 Eastern Conference games and 8-21 ATS in their last 29 home games against a team with a losing road record.
Washington and Phoenix are both bad and neither has anything to play for. However, Phoenix seems completely focused on non-essential things like have Booker put up big points. Washington isn’t going to just focus on Bradley Beal. I am sure the Wizards will spread the ball out and be able to score with ease on this Phoenix defense.
NBA Prediction: Washington Wizards -1.5
