Washington Wizards Betting
In their last game, they won against the Detroit Pistons by six points to snap a three-game skid. Bradley Beal looks to have shaken the rust already as he finished with 29 points and six assists while Ian Mahinmi is still taking the starting position at center to finish with 21 points, seven rebounds and three blocks. Bryant came off the bench and he had 13 points, six rebounds and a block in 21 minutes of action. On the other hand, Bertans is another player that seeks to shake off the cobwebs and he did fairly well with 8 points and three rebounds in 23 minutes. But this is the Heat they are facing and at home, they are an elite team that carries some energy coming from their crowd and they have to come in with their best game of the season to have a chance.

After a skid in San Antonio, Miami sealed an overtime win against the Sacramento Kings by five points. The team played without Jimmy Butler and rookie Kendrick Nunn took over leading the team with 25 points, seven rebounds and six assists.
