Can High-Scoring Wizards Keep up Their Pace on the Road?

The Washington Wizards were phenomenal in front of their hometown fans a year ago, and it looks like the dominance in D.C. has continued into the new campaign. The Wiz, who’ve collected consecutive wins at Capital One Arena, take their show on the road for the first time in the new campaign against the Denver Nuggets.

Xbet opened the Wiz as 3-point road underdogs with a total of 222.5.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Nuggets’ last seven games.
  • The Nuggets are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games as favorite.
  • The Wizards are 1-5 SU and ATS in their last six games as an underdog of 3.0 or less.

Washington hasn’t started a season 3-0 since 2005, but if they can keep up their high-scoring ways it could happen again. The Wizards have averaged 117.5 points per game while knocking off Philadelphia and Detroit in the nation’s capital, utilizing an aggressive approach that has seen them get to the free-throw line with ease. The Wizards have produced an average of 29.5 made free throws, tops in the NBA.

In the wake of a 96-79 win over Sacramento in their home opener on Sunday, the Nuggets snapped a 23-game losing streak when held under 100 points. A strong showing on defense was the major reason for the triumph, as the young Nuggets continue to thrive under head coach Mike Malone’s system.

OVER bettors love seeing these teams get together, and for good reason. In the last five meetings between the Wizards and Nuggets, the OVER is 4-1.
