Red-Hot Wizards Continue to be Undervalued

The Oklahoma City Thunder weren’t able to get the job done against ex-teammate Kevin Durant and the Golden State Warriors on the weekend, but they’ll have a chance to right the ship vs the Washington Wizards in D.C. on Monday. Sportsbooks opened the Wiz as 5-point favorites with a total of 217.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in four of the Thunder's last five games against the Wizards.
  • The Wizards are 16-0 SU and 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games as favorite.
  • The Thunder are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games on the road after losing their most recent road game.

Washington has quietly been one of the hottest teams in the Association of late, as the squad has rattled off victories in 16 of its last 19 games. All-star point guard John Wall has averaged 25.6 points and 13.4 assists in his last seven outings. His backcourt mate, Bradley Beal, has recorded at least 27 points in four of the last seven contests.

The Wiz have scored at least 100 points in 20 straight games, and they’ll need to bring their best offensive effort against a team that’s had their number. OKC has won five straight and seven of eight against the Wizards, including a 126-115 overtime triumph on November 30.

Oklahoma City has been a bad play in terms of underdog value. In the Thunder's last 12 when tabbed as pups, they're 2-10 ATS.
