The Washington Wizards, losers of four of their last five games, will be seeking to right the ship Saturday when they welcome the Charlotte Hornets to town. A leaky defense can be pointed to as the reason for Washington’s struggles, as the Wiz have allowed over 100 points in eight straight contests.
- The OVER is 4-0 in the Wizards last 4 overall.
- The UNDER is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings between the Wizards and Hornets.
- The underdog is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings between the Wizards and Hornets.
Charlotte has historically fared well against Washington, taking six of their previous eight meetings with the Wizards.
As bad as the Wizards’ defense has been lately, the Hornets have been on the other side of the fence. Charlotte has held nine of their last 11 opponents to under 100 points, including a 101-87 victory over Washington in the last meeting between the clubs on Nov. 25.
