San Antonio, Texas
The Line: San Antonio Spurs -6.5 -- Over/Under: 224.5
The Washington Wizards and San Antonio Spurs meet Sunday in NBA action at the AT&T Center.
The Washington Wizards look for another win after winning five of their last seven games. The Washington Wizards are averaging 112.7 points on 46.4 percent shooting and allowing 115.5 points on 47.2 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 24.7 points and 5.1 rebounds while Trevor Ariza is averaging 14.9 points and 6.1 rebounds. Otto Porter Jr. is the third double-digit scorer and Jeff Green is grabbing 4.7 rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 34.3 percent from beyond the arc and 76 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Wizards are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 41 rebounds per game. The Washington Wizards have lost six of their last eight road games.
The San Antonio Spurs could use a win here after splitting their last eight games. The San Antonio Spurs are averaging 111.9 points on 48.1 percent shooting and allowing 109.6 points on 46.2 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 21.5 points and 6.3 assists while LaMarcus Aldridge is averaging 20.6 points and 8.6 rebounds. Rudy Gay is the third double-digit scorer and Bryn Forbes is dishing 2.2 assists. The San Antonio Spurs are shooting 40.7 percent from beyond the arc and 81.6 percent from the free throw line. The San Antonio Spurs are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 44.3 rebounds per game. The San Antonio Spurs have won six of their last eight home games.
The Wizards are 8-27 ATS in their last 35 road games, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NBA Southwest and 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Spurs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Sunday games, 27-10 ATS in their last 37 home games and 19-6-1 ATS in their last 26 games overall. The Wizards are 3-14-1 ATS in the last 18 meetings in San Antonio and 8-21 ATS in the last 29 meetings. The under is 9-4 in Spurs last 13 home games. The under is 11-5-1 in Wizards last 17 Sunday games.
With this line, I'm assuming that Aldridge and DeRozan are going to play in this contest. The Washington Wizards have been fade material on the road all season long where they're not covering at all and are being outscored by an average of 9.2 points. The San Antonio Spurs have been the complete opposite at home where they've been a covering machine and are winning by an average of seven points. The Wizards are just 3-8 ATS this season when an underdog of at least six points. As long as the Spurs have their top-two scorers in this game, I'll lay the chalk.
