Bet on Lakers vs. Wizards

The Lakers played yesterday and traveled to D.C., but there are so many young legs on this team that bouncing back is probably less of an issue. Washington hasn't really been playing very good basketball lately aside from a strong showing in Toronto. This spread seems a few points too high. We'll take the visitors.
