The Thunder are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 vs. NBA Southeast and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 vs. Eastern Conference. The Wizards are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 2 days rest and 7-23-1 ATS in their last 31 games following a ATS loss. The Thunder are 3-9 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Washington and 7-15-2 ATS in the last 24 meetings overall.
If Beal is going to play, I like the Wizards at home and the free points. If Beal doesn't play, well, the Thunder should be the pick. I'm assuming Beal is going to play, so I'm siding with the Wiz crew.
