The Wizards are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Portland and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings.

I don't want to lay chalk with the Washington Wizards as much as the next guy, especially on the end of a back to back, but there's no doubt they have the better roster, with Portland throwing out a G League team these days. The Portland Trail Blazers have not only lost six straight games, but they're losing their last five games by an average of 31.4 points while shooting 36.6 percent from the field. It's bad out here, folks. It's the Wizards or pass for me.
