Markieff Morris is the third double-digit scorer and Kelly Oubre Jr. is grabbing 5.5 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 32.6 percent from beyond the arc and 79.2 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Wizards are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41.2 rebounds per game. The Washington Wizards have lost seven of their last eight road games.
The Sacramento Kings look for back-to-back victories for the first time to get back to a .500 record. The Sacramento Kings are averaging 117.2 points on 50.8 percent shooting and allowing 122 points on 48.8 percent shooting. De'Aaron Fox is averaging 17.6 points and 6.6 assists while Willie Cauley-Stein is averaging 16.4 points and 7.4 rebounds.

The Wizards are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Friday games and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Kings are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, 2-6 ATS in their last 8 Friday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Wizards are 1-3-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Sacramento, 3-0-1 ATS in the last 4 meetings and the under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Kings last 5 overall and the over is 4-0 in Wizards last 4 overall.
I'm not trying to back either one of these teams right now, as the Wizards have some brutal losses under their belt and refuse to make progress year to year, while the Kings, well, the Kings are the Kings. The Wizards are 29th in points allowed per game and the Kings are 28th in points allowed per game. Combined, the Wizards and Kings are allowing 246.5 points per game. The over has hit in all four of the Wizards games this season and four of the Kings five games. Instead of playing with this spread, give me the over.
