Wizards vs. Suns Prediction
The Washington Wizards have had their issues covering the spread for bettors in Phoenix and that's where they'll be tonight when they visit Devin Booker and the Suns at 10:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Wizards are 7-point road favorites versus the Suns while the over/under is currently sitting at 214 points. Washington is 6-4 over its last 10 games and 6-4 against the spread during that stretch, while Phoenix has lost seven of 10 but is 6-4 at the betting window over that span.
As previously mentioned, the Wizards have not had much luck covering the spread when playing in Phoenix or against the Suns. They're 4-10 against the spread in their last 14 games overall versus the Suns and have failed to cover in five of their last seven games in Phoenix.
The Wizards have also had issues covering coming off of losses, going just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games following defeat. They're 2-5 ATS in their last seven games versus Western Conference foes as well, and 2-5 ATS in their last seven games versus opponents with losing records.
On the other side, the Suns have actually been profitable coming off losses. They're 6-1 at the betting window in their last seven games following defeat and they're also 8-3 at the betting window in their last 11 games playing on one day of rest.
