The Washington Wizards and New York Knicks meet Sunday in NBA action at Madison Square Garden. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Washington Wizards are averaging 112.9 points on 48.6 percent shooting and allowing 113.8 points on 47 percent shooting. Bradley Beal is averaging 23.2 points and 3.9 rebounds, while Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 23 points and 2.6 assists.

The Washington Wizards are allowing 36.6 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game.

The New York Knicks are averaging 115.3 points on 46.6 percent shooting and allowing 112.8 points on 45.9 percent shooting. Julius Randle is averaging 25.4 points and 10.1 rebounds, while Jalen Brunson is averaging 23.8 points and 3.6 rebounds. RJ Barrett is the third double-digit scorer and Immanuel Quickley is grabbing 4.1 rebounds. The New York Knicks are shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the arc and 76.9 percent from the free throw line. The New York Knicks are allowing 35.2 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.7 rebounds per game.

The Wizards are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 road games and 4-10-1 ATS in their last 15 games overall. The Knicks are 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 home games and 14-6-1 ATS in their last 21 games overall. The under is 17-8 in Wizards last 25 road games. The under is 4-0 in Knicks last 4 overall. The Wizards are 13-4 ATS in the last 17 meetings in New York.

The New York Knicks should be big favorites at home for obvious reasons, and a blowout would surprise nobody. However, the Knicks are 1-3 ATS as double-digit favorites and the Wizards have been more competitive lately, and they're still in the convo for the play-in tournament. This is a lot of points. I'll take my chances with the Wizards and the free buckets.
