Washington Wizards vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Picks

The Wizards are 3-7 while the Cavaliers are 2-8 in their last 10 games. Top online sportsbooks are playing conservative for now by putting the Wizards as 1-point spread underdog, but expect the margin to change dramatically over the coming hours.

Moneyline: Bet on the Wizards at +101. It’s the best deal for any punter out there. The Wizards are always a threat as long as Bradley Beal is there to play. Plus, the Cavaliers are on a five-game losing streak.

ATS: Pick the Wizards to cover the 1-point spread. I expect the action in the spread betting game to move up and down between 1 to 5 points. Regardless of where it ends up, I’m confident Washington will take an ATS win on the road.

TOTALs: Cash in on UNDER at 233 points. The last time they played each other, the score wound up at 213 points. While the OVER is 7-3 in the Cavs’ last 10 games, the totals set in these games were just ranging around 210 to 220 points. Setting aside a 129-point explosion on Wednesday, the Wizards’ offense isn’t as explosive as it was in November and December.

Score Prediction: 115 – 110 Wizards
