Washington Wizards Betting Preview
The Washington Wizards need a win to snap a 5-game losing streak. The Washington Wizards lost to the Knicks by 21 points on Friday. The Washington Wizards are averaging 114.1 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 122.9 points on 49.6 percent shooting.

The Washington Wizards are allowing 35.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 38.9 rebounds per game.
I'm not excited to lay this many points with the Milwaukee Bucks, especially on the road. The Bucks continue to be shaky defensively, and they're 4-8-1 ATS on the season. However, the Washington Wizards aren't a serious team as they also don't play a lick of defense, and it feels like Jordan Poole is just around to have fun now that he's got a ring and money. I wouldn't touch this game personally, but I'm on the Bucks if forced.
