The Washington Wizards travel to Little Caesars Arena to battle the Detroit Pistons on Wednesday night.

The Washington Wizards have been in a slump as they’ve lost four of their past five games and they will be eager to snap a three-game skid after falling just short to the Pacers in a 116-110 road loss on Monday. Bradley Beal led the team with 34 points on 12 of 19 shooting, Kyle Kuzma and Daniel Gafford each scored 14 points while Montrezl Harrell chipped in with 11 points off the bench. As a team, the Wizards shot 53 percent from the field and seven of 15 from the 3-point line, but another slow start cost them as they were always fighting an uphill battle after scoring just 18 points in the first quarter. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had a rough night as he scored just eight points on three of 11 shooting while Raul Neto scored just six points on one of six shooting off the bench.

Meanwhile, the Detroit Pistons have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 10 of their past 11 games and they will be hoping to snap a nine-game slide after getting routed by the Thunder in a 114-103 home loss on Monday. Cade Cunningham led the team with 28 points, 11 rebounds and five assists, Jerami Grant added 20 points with six rebounds and five assists while Saddiq Bey chipped in with 15 points but no other player finished in double figures. As a team, the Pistons shot just 41 percent from the field and 16 of 41 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 37 points in the first quarter to take the early 18-point lead, before getting blown off the floor in the second half by 64-40. Bey shot just five of 16 from the field and the Pistons didn’t get enough from their bench as Saben Lee led the reserves with just nine points on three of nine shooting while Frank Jackson scored just four points on two of six shooting.

Looking at the betting trends, the Wizards are 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight road games, 0-5-1 ATS in their lasty six games against a team with a losing record and 2-6-1 ATS in their last nine games overall. The Pistons are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games against a team with a winning record and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a loss of more than 10 points.

Head to head, the under is 4-0 in the last four meetings overall, the Wizards are 1-5 ATS in the last six meetings in Detroit and the Wizards are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall.

The Wizards haven’t quite looked like themselves lately and they could be shorthanded once again as Davis Bertans is listed as day to day. The Pistons have been ice-cold lately and their confidence took a massive hit after getting routed by the Thunder in their own building on Monday. It’s always tough to pick between two struggling teams, but this is just the type of game that the Wizards need to win if they’re serious about the playoffs this season. The Wizards are 5-2 ATS in the last seven meetings overall and I think that trend continues here as they get the much-needed win behind another big game from Beal.
