The Washington Wizards are on the end of a back to back, but they're playing their best ball of the season and have had ridiculous covering success in these schedule spots. The Los Angeles Clippers are head and shoulders the better team here, but they're just 3-3 against the spread as a double-digit favorite and are winning their last five games by an average of 1.2 points. The Clippers aren't blowing the doors off opponents right now. Give me the points with the Wizards.
