The Philadelphia 76ers are obviously capable of blowing the doors off here, but this is a lot of points. While the Wizards don’t win a lot, they’re a competitive squad that actually wins on the road by an average of 0.1 points and loses as underdogs by an average of 2.2 points. The Wizards aren’t getting blown out a lot. Give me the points.
