San Antonio Spurs Betting
The losing woes have continued for the Spurs, who dropped their sixth straight game against the Dallas Mavericks 117-110. DeMar DeRozan exploded for 36 points on 14-for-20 shooting with 8 rebounds and 4 assists, but that stats line would still pale in comparison to the 42-point, 11-rebound, 12-assist triple-double game from Mavs star Luka Doncic. The Spurs’ defense was also non-existing as they allowed Dallas to shoot 50 percent from the field.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (21.0 PPG, 5.1 RPG, 4.8 APG), LaMarcus Aldridge (18.3 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 2.3 APG), Bryn Forbes (14.2 PPG, 2.6 RPG, 1.2 APG)
Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards just look lost in the vast sea without injured guard John Wall. Bradley Beal, who has been carrying the load for this franchise the last two seasons, recorded 34 points, 6 rebounds and 8 assists in Sunday’s 125-121 loss to the Orlando Magic. Washington had a poor defensive job in the payoff period, in which the Magic scored 44 points.
Players to Watch: Bradley Beal (30.1 PPG, 4.7 RPG, 6.9 APG), Thomas Bryant (14.4 PPG, 9.0 RPG, 2.5 APG), Isaiah Thomas (13.3 PPG, 1.7 RPG, 6.0 APG)

San Antonio Spurs vs Washington Wizards Betting Picks
Top online sportsbooks viewed the Spurs as playoff contenders in the West this season with two legitimate All-Stars on their roster. However, sagging defense and the absence of a potent three-point weapon has really doomed this team during this rough stretch.
Moneyline: The Spurs edged the Wizards, 124-122, in their first meeting last season. San Antonio is sporting a 2-3 record against Eastern Conference teams but 1-5 on the road. Still, the Spurs’ 7-3 head-to-head record vs. Wizards in the last 10 games should make them an ideal pick to win straight up.
ATS: Despite the miserable record, the Wizards are solid against the spread with a 7-3-1 ATS record. Unfortunately, the spread (+2 points) is just too narrow that it’s harder to trust the Wiz to cover the spread.
TOTALs: The total opened at a high 239 points. Considering the Wizards’ are one of the top-5 offensive teams and the Spurs are having trouble slowing down the pace like they used to be, the total for this game will go OVER.
Score Prediction: 126-120 Spurs
