Bet Today's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Washington. As of this afternoon, 69 percent of bettors are putting their money on the Wizards. 

Injury Report: Now that point guard John Wall (knee) is back in the fold and small foward Otto Porter Jr. (hip) is recovered, Washington doesn't have any notable injuries. Atlanta is thin in the frontcourt with Mike Muscala and Dewayne Dedmon both recovering from leg injuries. 

Who the Trends Like: The over is 12-3-1 in the last 16 meetings in Atlanta. Atlanta is 1-4 ATS in its last five games following a straight up win. The under is 6-1 in the last seven Washington games versus an opponent with a losing straight up record at home. 

Who We Like: For whatever reason, these two squads routinley put up a lot of points when they meet each other in Atlanta. With the Wizards being healthy, their offense is beginning to thrive. And defense has never been a strong suit for Atlanta. Expect a show out of Wall and Atlanta point guard Dennis Schroder to allow the total points to go over.
