Wizards 128, Pistons 119
The WIZARDS ( +220) just beat the Pistons (-278) by a 133-119 score Dec. 19 at LCA, and they're 2-0 SU/ATS vs. Detroit this season. What you have to like about Washington is its bombs away perimeter shooting. It ranks third from behind the 3-point line, while the Pistons are a dismal 23rd in 3-pointer defense.
New to sports betting? A $10 bet on the Wizards to win outright returns a profit of $22.
The WIZARDS ( +5.5, -106) are a nice play against the spread. As mentioned, they're 2-0 ATS against the Pistons (-5.5, -115), who enter the game on a five-game losing skid while also going 0-5 ATS. They have averaged just 105.4 PPG in the past five while allowing 120.6 PPG.
The OVER 231.5 ( -106) is where it's at. The Pistons are terrible defensively, especially lately, while the Wizards have been dropping in plenty of triples. Washington was 18-of-34 (53.0 percent) from behind the 3-point line in the Dec. 16 meeting. The offenses might not be as prolific in this one, but an Over bet is still the way to go.
