The Washington Wizards look for their first home victory after a 2-1 start. The Washington Wizards are averaging 105.3 points on 43.8 percent shooting and allowing 105.7 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 25.3 points and 4.3 rebounds while John Wall is averaging 22 points and 6.7 assists. Otto Porter Jr. is grabbing seven rebounds and Nene Hilario is dishing two assists. The Washington Wizards are getting 72.3 points from their starters, which is six points more than league average. The Wizards now just have to be better defensively, as they’ve lost 13 of their last 15 regular season games when allowing 100 or more points. Martell Webster is questionable with a hip injury.
The Spurs are 8-0 ATS in their last 8 vs. Eastern Conference and 49-22-1 ATS in their last 72 vs. NBA Southeast. The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NBA Southwest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 vs. Western Conference. The Spurs are 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Washington and 20-6-2 ATS in the last 28 meetings overall.
The Spurs have been far more consistent than the Wizards, a team that lost to the Knicks in their season opener. Even with Washington having the rest advantage, the Spurs and the small chalk has to be the play here against an inconsistent Wizards team.
