The Washington Wizards play host to the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Capital One Arena on Friday night.

The Cleveland Cavaliers look to have moved on from their five-game skid as they are now aiming for a fourth straight victory after routing the Heat in a 111-85 road win on Wednesday. Kevin Love led the team in scoring with 22 points on six of nine shooting off the bench, Jarrett Allen added 19 points with 11 rebounds and five blocks, Evan Mobley scored 17 points with 11 rebounds and four blocks while Darius Garland chipped in with 16 points and seven assists. As a team, the Cavaliers shot 54 percent from the field and 16 of 31 from the 3-point line as they jumped all over the Heat early, holding them to just 16 points in the first quarter to take the early double-digit lead, before finishing with a flurry to make it a blowout.

Meanwhile, the Washington Wizards have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their last four games and they will be looking to stay hot after taking down the Timberwolves in a 115-107 home win on Wednesday. Montrezl Harrell led the team in scoring with 27 points on in just 21 minutes off the bench, Bradley Beal added 19 points with six rebounds and nine assists while Daniel Gafford chipped in with 18 points, 10 rebounds and three blocks. As a team, the Wizards shot 49 percent from the field and 10 of 32 from the 3-point line as they fell behind early after allowing 33 points in the second quarter, before taking over in the second half where they outscored the Timberwolves by 62-50. Spencer Dinwiddie had a night to forget as he finished with just three points on one of nine shooting, while Harrell barely missed as he shot 11 of 12 from the field off the bench.

Looking at the betting trends, the Cavaliers are 4-0 ATS in their last four games as an underdog, 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games and 5-0 ATS in their last five games overall. The Wizards are 5-1 ATS in their last six home games, 15-7 ATS in their last 22 games against a team with a winning record and 1-4 ATS in their last five games as a favorite.

Head to head, the under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings in Washington and the under is 4-1 in the last five meetings overall.

The Cavaliers have been a streaky team this season, but they’re on a winning streak right now and they come into this game with plenty of momentum after dismantling the shorthanded Heat on Wednesday. The Wizards have been building nicely themselves and just took down the red-hot Timberwolves behind another big game from Harrell. This shapes up to be a close one, so I’m leaning towards the Cavaliers and any points I can get. The Cavaliers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games and I think that trend continues here.
