The Washington Wizards and the Oklahoma City Thunder do battle tonight at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
The Wizards have won three of their last four and will be full of confidence following Monday's 101-95 overtime home win over the Kings. Bradley Beal drained a career-high seven threes en route to 31 points, John Wall added 19 points with eight rebounds and 11 assists while Otto Porter Jr. chipped in with 15 points but it was the Wizards' defense which shone in overtime where they held the Kings to just three points. With the win, Washington improves to 6-10 overall and 5-5 at home.

Meanwhile, the Thunder will be aiming for a fourth straight win tonight after taking down the Knicks by 112-103 on Monday. Russell Westbrook led the way with another triple-double, finishing with 27 points, 18 rebounds and four assists but he also had plenty of support as Enes Kanter scored 27 points while Steven Adams and Anthony Morrow chipped in with 14 points each. As a team, the Thunder shot 50 percent from the field while holding the Knicks to below 40 percent and they did well to limit Carmelo Anthony to four of 19 shooting from the field. All-around a solid win for the Thunder who are now 11-8 overall and 4-4 on the road.
Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 road games against a team with a winning home record and 0-4 ATS in their last four games following a ATS win, while the Thunder are 6-2 ATS in their last eight against the NBA Southeast and 1-5 ATS in their last six Wednesday games.
Head to head, the Wizards are 0-3-1 ATS in the last four meetings and the Over is 9-4 in the last 13 meetings.
The Wizards are quietly gaining confidence and are playing better than their 6-10 record suggests, but they're faced with a tough task in trying to silence the Thunder in their own building. It'll be a close game for three quarters by I expect Westbrook and the Thunder to pull away late and earn the win at home where they are 7-4.
