The Washington Wizards are shooting 36.4 percent from beyond the arc and 75.2 percent from the free throw line. The Washington Wizards are allowing 39 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game.
The Miami Heat need a win after losing 10 of their last 13 games. The Miami Heat are averaging 106.5 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 111.9 points on 45.2 percent shooting. Bam Adebayo is averaging 19.9 points and 9.4 rebounds while Jimmy Butler is averaging 18.8 points and six assists.

The Wizards are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Heat are 0-7-1 ATS in their last 8 home games and 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Wizards last 5 road games. The over is 5-2 in Heat last 7 games as a favorite. The Wizards are 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Miami and 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
The Washington Wizards aren't a good basketball team and aren't a team I back much. However, the Miami Heat are watching their season fall apart rather quickly, as this team can't rebound, can't defend the three and forgets how to score in the second half. The Heat are losing their last five games by an average of 8.2 points and we just saw them lose to the Wizards on Wednesday without Westbrook. I'm not laying big chalk with the Heat. It's Wizards and the points or pass.
