Portland Trail Blazers vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks

The Wizards will once again miss several key plays and possibly top-scorer Bradley Beal in the game. This will bode well for NBA parlay and money bettors picking the Blazers to take the W.

Moneyline: The Blazers should have an easy time winning this game since the Wizards are very much heavily depleted. Expect Lillard and McCollum to produce big numbers.

ATS: Portland will easily cruise to a double-digit lead and cover the spread in the process, especially if Beal sits out.

TOTALs: The total opened at 233 points. The Wizards are one of the best offensive teams in the NBA at 116 points per game, but without their key bench players and Beal, they will have a hard time reaching their point average per game. I pick UNDER.

Score Prediction: 116 – 110 Blazers
