Washington Wizards vs New York Knicks Betting Picks

Both 5-5 in their last 10 games, the Wizards and Knicks will go for the win Wednesday, albeit for different reasons. The Wizards want to stay in the playoff picture in the East, while the Knicks look to build a winning culture with their young guys.

Moneyline: Pick the Wizards at +120. Washington has a bona fide All-Star leading their team. Bradley Beal has been balling in the last few games and I expect him to carry the fight for the Wizards.

ATS: Bet on the Wizards to cover the spread. Washington is 4-2 against the spread in its last 10 games.

TOTALs: Back on the OVER at 229.5 points. The Knicks were just figured in a high-scoring battle against the Hawks, while the Wizards boast one of the top offenses in the league. I think OVER is the smarter over/under basketball pick for this game.

Score Prediction: 123 – 110 Wizards
