The Washington Wizards will be without Bradley Beal for this contest, which explains the line, but they’re still on fire, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 2.8 points while shooting 50 percent from the field.

Even without Beal, the Wizards winning outright wouldn’t be surprising. Give me the points.
