Brooklyn Nets Betting

Nets head coach Kenny Atkinson knows that getting wins will be essential from here on. Breathing down their neck are the Orlando Magic, meaning a loss could be detrimental. After losing Kyrie Irving, the task of leading Brooklyn depends on the healthy bodies available. That includes Spencer Dinwiddie and Caris LeVert who may have to do that for the rest of the season. Their defense needs to hold up especially against Bradley Beal. They are defending the perimeter well, a plus for them since the Wizards do have reliable shooters.

Players to watch: S. Dinwiddie PG 56 GP 41 GS 31.3 MIN 20.8 PTS 0.5 OR 3 DR 3.5 REB 6.7 AST 0.6 STL 0.3 BLK 2.7 TO 2.8 PF 2.5 AST/TO 17.94 PER

C. LeVert SG 31 GP 17 GS 27.9 MIN 15.7 PTS 0.9 OR 2.8 DR 3.7 REB 3.7 AST 1.1 STL 0.2 BLK 2.6 TO 1.9 PF 1.4 AST/TO 12.34 PER

J. Harris SF 55 GP 55 GS 31.3 MIN 13.7 PTS 0.9 OR 3.4 DR 4.3 REB 2.1 AST 0.6 STL 0.3 BLK 1.4 TO 2.3 PF 1.5 AST/TO 12.57 PER

Washington Wizards Betting

The Wizards are dangerous and it all starts with Bradley Beal. They have shown in past games that they can play good basketball. In fact, they almost pulled a stunner against the Milwaukee Bucks. That alone should serve faire warning to the Nets who are several notches lower. Beal is expected to lead the way anew although help from the bench is expected. Though Brooklyn has been struggling offensively, stepping up in defense could increase their chances of winning. They are allowing opposing teams 120.1 points per game, something they cannot afford against the Nets.

Players to Watch: B. Beal SG 49 GP 49 GS 35.7 MIN 30.1 PTS 1 OR 3.4 DR 4.3 REB 6 AST 1.1 STL 0.4 BLK 3.5 TO 2.3 PF 1.7 AST/TO 22.83 PER
