The Washington Wizards are coming off a confidence boosting win over the Lakers, and they need to take advantage of games like this if they have any chance of sneaking into the play-in tournament. The Houston Rockets aren't winning, aren't covering numbers, and you shouldn't expect things to change on the end of a back to back. The Rockets are losing their last five games by an average of 9.8 points while not playing a lick of defense. The Rockets are 13-21 against the spread at home. I'll lay the reasonable chalk here with the Wizards.
