The Wizards are 7-16-1 ATS in their last 24 road games and 16-33-2 ATS in their last 51 games overall. The Lakers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite and 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 4-0 in Wizards last 4 overall. The under is 4-1 in Lakers last 5 home games. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Los Angeles and 5-2 in the last 7 meetings.

I don't want to back the Washington Wizards on the road as much as the next guy, but I'm not sure if we have any other option. The Los Angeles Lakers have been a disappointment all year, and it feels like things are getting worse by the day. Not only are Lakers players arguing with fans, and it feels like guys are checking out, but they just lost to the Rockets. A veteran team fighting for playoff seeding lost to possibly the worst team in the league. Every other day, the Lakers hit a new low. They may win and cover, but I won't have my money on the Lakers.
