How Will Wizards Respond After Getting Smoked by Utah?

After suffering the second-worst loss in franchise history, the Washington Wizards will try to bounce back against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. The Wizards matched the NBA season low for points in a 116-69 thumping at the hands of the Utah Jazz in their last time out.

MyBookie opened the Wiz as 5.5-point road underdogs with a total of 204.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Wizards’ last 15 games.
  • The Wizards are 3-1 ATS in their last four games with no days off between games.
  • The total has gone OVER in the Wizards’ last four games against the Trail Blazers.

Washington shot 28.2 percent from the field in the loss to the Jazz, which is the second lowest in the Association this year. The Wizards will be without John Wall for the sixth straight game tonight as the superstar point guard recovers from a knee injury. Wall’s absence has clearly hurt the team, as starting shooting guard Bradley Beal has consistently been double-teamed in that span.

The Trail Blazers haven’t been getting the job done at the Moda Center, as Portland owns a mediocre 7-6 SU mark at home this season. Portland has traditionally been strong on home court but is coming off rough losses to the Milwaukee Bucks and New Orleans Pelicans. CJ McCollum loves facing Washington, evidenced by his 30 points per game average in his last two vs the Wizards.

Betting Portland after a loss has been a poor strategy of late. In the Blazers’ last eight when coming off a loss, they’re a brutal 1-6-1 ATS.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Portland Trail Blazers opened as 6-point favorites at online sportsbook BetOnline, while the NBA total line was sitting around 201.5 at Bovada for those who prefer OVER/UNDER betting on the total amount of points scored.
