Another Sky-High Total on Deck in Warriors-Wizards

The Golden State Warriors haven’t been playing the type of high-octane basketball we’re used to seeing from them so far in the young NBA season, but they’re starting to round into form in the wake of back-to-back wins. Stephen Curry and company will look to tighten things up on both ends of the floor when they welcome the Washington Wizards to town tonight.

MyBookie opened the Wiz as 11-point road underdogs with a total of 230.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Warriors are 11-1 SU in their last 12 games at home.
  • The Wizards are 1-9 SU and ATS in their last 10 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Wizards’ last seven games on the road.

Golden State barely eked out a win over the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday but some clutch three-pointers in the final minutes of the game by Curry and Kevin Durant earned them a 117-112 home triumph. The defense hasn’t been there for the Dubs, which caused Draymond Green to call their efforts “horrible” on the defensive end. The Warriors led the NBA in defensive field-goal percentage (43.5) last season but have slipped to 45.2 percent through five games this year.

The Wizards are coming off their first loss of the season, falling 102-99 to the Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday. If the Wizards are going to go toe to toe with the Warriors like the Raptors did, they’ll need their star player to get going. John Wall is just 10-for-35 from the floor over the last two games and 2-for-14 from downtown this season.

Golden State’s dominance over the Wizards is well known, evidenced by the Warriors claiming 11 of the last 13 meetings between the squads.
