Washington Wizards Betting

Washington Wizards won their last game against the New York Knicks when they managed to score 121 points. The Wizards restricted the Knicks to 115 points and it was an important victory. Washington is still struggling to get past their 12th position in the Eastern Conference play. Overall, the Wizards have a long way to get on top and they must work on their offensive and defensive strategy equally. However, the Wizards are playing this game on the road and they must do their best to prevent the Pistons from scoring.
