The over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The Washington Wizards are the better team in this contest, but they're still a club that's lost four of their last five games and is allowing 51.2 percent shooting from the field and 41.3 percent shooting from deep during that stretch. The Golden State Warriors just beat the Phoenix Suns Saturday night as double-digit underdogs. While the Wizards have had more success this season and have the rest advantage, they're not that better than Golden State, and they certainly shouldn't be big favorites on the road against anybody. Like last night, give me the Warriors and the points.
