The Pistons are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall.

The Washington Wizards should be favored as they're the better team, at home, with the rest advantage, but this line feels a bit too steep. The Washington Wizards are in no position to be double-digit favorites against anyone, especially when they lose at home by an average of 0.6 points. This will be just the second time this season the Wizards are double-digit favorites. No, thank you. Give me the points.
