Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards are the closest team to chase and steal the last spot for the NBA Eastern Conference playoffs but they have been having a hard time staying afloat as they lost six of their last ten games. But for the past four games, they have evened out their wins and losses and seems a team that is looking to pick up the pieces. Bradley Beal has been one of the most lethal scorers in the league and he has been proving it in their past games. This season he averages, 30.4 points and 6.1 assists per game while he is getting help from Davis Bertans and Rui Hachimura.

The Portland Trail Blazers finally snapped a three-game losing streak with a win over the Orlando Magic by 23 points. They still don’t have Damian Lillard back but CJ McCollum has been trying to fill up the main scoring role as he fired 41 points along with five rebounds and five assists. Gary Trent Jr. stepped up with 24 points while Hassan Whiteside has been their anchor in the paint with 16 points, 13 boards and two blocks. Overall, this team now needs Damian Lillard to get a chance at that last playoff spot but right now, they have been overtaken by the Sacramento Kings.
