I wasn't that high on the Wizards with John Wall due to the lack of depth, so without him, I can't back Washington against good teams. The 76ers still have their issues to figure out, but they're more than capable of beating up on a team without its best player. The 76ers have also played their best at home and are catching the Wizards on the end of a back to back. Give me the home team and the reasonable line.
