The Washington Wizards play host to the Milwaukee Bucks tonight at the Verizon Center.
The Wizards will be going for a third straight win tonight after making light work of the Bulls in a 114-100 win on Monday. John Wall led the team with 17 points and 10 assists and Ramon Sessions added 16 points and five other players finished in double figures as the Wizards put together one of their best performances of the season to beat the Bulls at home. With the win, Washington improves to 17-19 on the season and 9-8 on the road where they've won three of their last four.

Meanwhile, the Bucks are coming off their second win in three games, beating the Bulls by 106-101 last night. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the way with 29 points, Greg Monroe had 17 points while Jabari Parker and Khris Middleton added 16 points each as the Bucks rallied in the fourth quarter to beat the Bulls and improve to 16-24 on the season and 11-7 at home.
In ATS trends, the Bucks are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games playing on zero days rest and 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games overall, while the Wizards are 4-0 ATS in their last four games against a team with a losing record and 9-3 ATS in their last 12 games overall.
Head to head, the Bucks are 1-4 ATS in the last five meetings in Washington and 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings overall.
The Bucks could very well pull off the upset despite having play just last night, but I like the Wizards to win and cover at home after what I saw from them in their impressive win on Monday.
