10* Washington (7:05 ET): It’s not all that often you see the Wizards favored and the fact that they would be laying points to Golden State is something that could not have been believed at the start of the season. But we know how things have gone for the Warriors this year with both “Splash Brothers” (Curry & Thompson) out, leaving the team as a shell of its former championship self. Despite a convincing win the other night in Cleveland, the Dubs still have the worst overall record in the league at 11-39 SU.
The Wizards have been a disaster defensively this season, ranking last in the league in efficiency and points allowed. Fortunately for them though, Golden State has been pretty bad defensively as well. Over the last six games, the fewest points allowed by the Warriors was 112 and that came in the win Saturday at Cleveland. Meanwhile, Washington has actually held its last two opponents to 107 pts and as a result won both games. It should be noted the Wizards do allow far less PPG here at home than on the road.
I like the matchup for Washington for several reasons. One is that Golden State is playing for a fourth straight time on the road and all of those games have been out East. It was a rare good game for Warriors on Saturday, but that also came at the expense of the worst team in the league. Before that, they’d lost 15 of 16 overall and had gone nearly two months w/o a road win. This will be the Wizards’ third straight game at home and leading scorer Bradley Beal has been motivated by being “snubbed” as an All-Star. 10* Washington
