Knicks vs. Wizards Prediction
Should bettors take the points with the visiting New York Knicks Sunday evening when they take on the Washington Wizards at 6:00 p.m. ET?
Sunday, March 25, 2018
TV: NBATV, 6:00 p.m. ET
Washington opened as a 10-point home favorite and that’s where the point spread currently sits at the majority of online sportsbooks. As for the total, it opened at 217 and that’s where it sits.
As of this writing, 69% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Wizards to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 72% of the betting tickets are on the over.
KEY INJURY TO WATCH
The Knicks will not have Kristaps Porzingis (knee) nor Ron Baker (shoulder), whom are both out for the year, while Lance Thomas (personal) is probable. For the Wizards, John Wall continues to be out with a knee injury suffered earlier this month.
The Knicks are just 2-8 over their last 10 games but they’ve actually been a decent play at the betting window, which cannot be said for the Wizards. New York is 4-1 against the spread in its last five games overall, is 4-0 against the number in its last four games after allowing 100 points or more in its previous game, and is 4-1 at the betting window in its last five games when its opponent allows 100 points or more in its previous game.
On the other side, the Wizards have covered the spread just once in their last six games, are 1-4-1 against the number in their last six home games, and have not covered the spread once in their last six home games when facing an opponent with a road winning percentage of less than .400.
