The Wizards are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up win and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Friday games. The Warriors are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games playing on 2 days rest and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Wizards last 5 overall. The under is 6-2 in Warriors last 8 games playing on 2 days rest. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings in Golden State and 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Washington Wizards continue to lose and come up short against the spread, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 9.6 points. The Golden State Warriors aren't playing much better, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 10.2 points. It's tough to back either of these teams with confidence, but the Warriors are the better team when healthy, and they should have their key players on the court here. It's Warriors and the chalk or pass for me.
