Wizards Continue To Be An UNDER Machine Without Wall

The Washington Wizards are being tested by the absence of all-star point guard John Wall right now, but they’re still coming through with victories thanks to strong play from the bench. The Wiz continue their road trip in the City of Brotherly Love on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The Wizards are 12-3 SU in their last 15 games against the 76ers.
  • The 76ers are 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against teams with winning records.
  • The 76ers are 1-6 SU and 1-5-1 ATS in their last seven games after losing as a favorite.

Wall is expected to miss the next two weeks due to a knee injury, and Bradley Beal had an off-night in a 92-89 Washington victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday. The bench saved the day, however, as the unit outscored Minnesota’s bench 49-11 in the victory. Otto Porter was the lone starter to score in double figures, as reserve players Kelly Oubre Jr. (16 points) and Ian Mahinmi (eight rebounds) stepped up in a big way.

Star rookie point guard Ben Simmons is questionable for the game due to an ankle injury he suffered in Monday’s 113-91 setback to the Cleveland Cavaliers. Simmons is averaging 18.1 points, 9.1 rebounds and 7.4 assists on the year and will reportedly test the ankle during the pregame walk-through before a decision is made regarding his playing status. If the LSU product is unable to suit up, backup point guard T.J. McConnell will start in his place.

Philly had won five of its last six prior to the blowout to the Cavs, when failure connecting from downtown played a major part in the loss. The 76ers made just three of 28 shots from three-point range in the game.

After yet another UNDER in Minnesota, totals bettors once again capitalized on Washington. In the Wizards’ last 12 games, the UNDER is 10-2.

A 109-99 result in favor of the 76ers is the prediction by the OddsShark handicapping pick engine. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NBA matchups here.
