The Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards meet Wednesday in NBA action at the Capital One Arena. The Phoenix Suns have split their last 8 games. The Washington Wizards have lost 6 of their last 9 games.

The Phoenix Suns are averaging 115.5 points on 47 percent shooting and allowing 111.6 points on 47 percent shooting. Devin Booker is averaging 27.1 points and 5.6 assists, while Deandre Ayton is averaging 17.8 points and 9.7 rebounds. Mikal Bridges is the third double-digit scorer and Cameron Johnson is grabbing 3.4 rebounds. The Phoenix Suns are shooting 37.8 percent from beyond the arc and 78.7 percent from the free throw line. The Phoenix Suns are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.3 rebounds per game.

The Washington Wizards are averaging 111.2 points on 47.8 percent shooting and allowing 113.7 points on 46.5 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 23.7 points and 3.7 rebounds, while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 21.9 points and 2.6 assists.

The Washington Wizards are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 75.8 percent from the free throw line.

The Suns are 9-3 ATS in their last 12 Wednesday games. The Wizards are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 5-13-2 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The over is 7-3 in Suns last 10 road games. The under is 5-0 in Wizards last 5 overall. The Suns are 13-3 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Washington and 19-9 ATS in the last 28 meetings.

Both teams on the end of a back to back, I’ll take a stab with the team at home that didn’t have to travel. The Phoenix Suns have been a mess these last couple of weeks, and they’re undermanned, which makes being on the end of a back to back tougher. The status of Bradley Beal will be key as he got injured last night. Still, it’s Washington or pass for me given the Suns injury report.
