Why bet the Washington Wizards odds at +1
The best reason to bet the Wizards in this contest is that they’re the more mature, and talented team. Washington (23-27 SU, 26-23-1 ATS) has won two of its last three games including its 111-108 win over New York as a 1.5-point road dog on Wednesday. The Wizards, despite underachieving all season long, have also won three straight and seven of their last eight meetings against the Bucks.

Why bet the Milwaukee Bucks Odds at -1

The best reason to bet the Bucks in this contest is that they’ve played a lot better at home than on the road. Milwaukee (21-32 SU, 26-26-1 ATS) has gone 14-8 SU at home this season while compiling a solid 12-9-1 ATS mark on their home floor. The Bucks are coming off a thrilling 112-111 win over Boston as a 4-point home dog on Wednesday night and will likely carry that confidence over into this contest.

Expert Analysis and Free Pick

The Wizards and Bucks can both put points on the board and neither plays much defense at all, but I believe the best pick for this contest is to play the Under 210 total points.
Milwaukee and Washington have played Over 210 total points just twice in their last seven meetings and average a combined 201. points per game while allowing a combined 108.4 points per contest defensively.

54 percent of the betting public likes the Over, but I’m going with the 46 percent of bettors that like the Under. The Under is 6-0 in Milwaukee’s last six games following a straight up win and 4-1 in their last five games after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game.

My Final Score prediction is Milwaukee 102 Washington 100
