Bet on Wizards vs. Knicks

The Knicks could relish the role of playing spoiler tonight and keep the Wizards from running right over them. Washington is an impressive team, but not the best on the road, going just 17-21. The Wizards should be able to win this game, but I expect it to be competitive and come down to the wire.
