The Oklahoma City Thunder and Washington Wizards meet Monday in NBA action at the Capital One Arena.
The Oklahoma City Thunder need a win here to snap a 10-game losing streak. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 105.3 points on 44.4 percent shooting and allowing 114.3 points on 46.9 percent shooting. Shai Gilgeous-Alexander is averaging 23.7 points and 4.7 rebounds while Luguentz Dort is averaging 13.6 points and 3.6 rebounds. Darius Bazley is the third double-digit scorer and Ty Jerome is grabbing 2.9 rebounds. The Oklahoma City Thunder are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 72.7 percent from the free throw line. The Oklahoma City Thunder are allowing 35.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45.3 rebounds per game.
The Washington Wizards look to stay hot after winning six of their last seven games. The Washington Wizards are averaging 113.9 points on 46.9 percent shooting and allowing 118.3 points on 47.1 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 31.1 points and 4.8 rebounds while Russell Westbrook is averaging 21.9 points and 10.8 assists. Rui Hachimura is the third double-digit scorer and Davis Bertans is grabbing three rebounds. The Washington Wizards are shooting 34.5 percent from beyond the arc and 75.8 percent from the free throw line.

The Thunder are 4-11-1 ATS in their last 16 games playing on 0 days rest and 1-8 ATS in their last 9 games overall. The Wizards are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 home games and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The under is 10-2 in Thunder last 12 road games. The under is 8-3 in Wizards last 11 overall. The Thunder are 5-11 ATS in the last 16 meetings in Washington.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been fade material for a while and them being on the end of a back to back doesn't help much. OKC entered last night losing their last five games by an average of 21 points while shooting just 44.1 percent from the field. The Washington Wizards are playing their best ball of the season right now and seem like they want to make a last second push toward a playoff spot. I don't trust the Wizards with big chalk, but this line just goes to show how bad OKC is and how little confidence oddsmakers have in them. It's Wizards or pass.
