Washington suffered their third loss in four games on Tuesday, bowing to the Milwaukee Bucks, 151-131. Bradley Beal erupted for 47 points and Thomas Bryant had an outstanding all-around performance with 18 points, 10 rebounds and 6 assists.

Charlotte Hornets vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks
Both with poor records in their last 10 games, the Hornets (2-8) and the Wizards (3-7) split their first two head-to-head games of the season, making it tough for online bookmakers to set profitable odds.
Moneyline: Pick the Wizards at -157. Washington’s back-to-back setbacks further buried them in the standings but they showed in their last two games that their offense has remained elite. I can’t see the Hornets containing Beal and the Wizards’ high-octane offense.
ATS: Bet on the Wizards to cover the 3.5 point spread. Washington is 10-10 ATS at home this season.
TOTALs: Back the OVER at 227 points. The Wizards scored 133 and 131 points in their last two games. Although the Hornets just posted 97 in a win against the Knicks, I am confident Washington’s offense will push the total score past 227 points.
Score Prediction: 135 – 118 Wizards
