Wizards at Nets odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Nets 112, Wizards 104

Money line

The Wizards have struggled, winning only three of their last 13 games, but the Nets have only two wins in their last 13. The difference is that, since adding G Seth Curry and C Andre Drummond after the trade with the 76ers, the Nets are 2-0. Drummond gives them size and Curry shooting.

The Nets are only 13-14 at home, but Washington is 11-16 on the road.

The Nets are 2-1 against the Wizards this season, winning the other game they played in Brooklyn.

You’re late to the party, and it’s chalky, but take the NETS (-205).

Against the spread

The Wizards have covered the spread only twice in their last 10 games and are 21-34-2 ATS overall this season. They are not a good bet on the road at 8-18-1 ATS.

The Nets have only covered the spread four times in their last 10 games but have done so in three straight coming into tonight’s matchup.

With the new additions, the Nets should be able to take care of business against Washington before the All-Star break.

Take the NETS -4.5 (-120).

Over/Under

The Nets’ last two games, both wins, had fewer than 218 points.

The totals for the three games between the two teams this season were 194, 237 and 225.

Washington has allowed 112 or more in four of their last five games.

Before the Nets’ two wins, they had allowed 110 points or more in nine straight.

But if we are going to look at how the Nets look now, it is going to be close, but I LEAN UNDER 215.5 (-115).
