Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Washington Wizards vs. Atlanta Hawks
Tuesday, December 18, 2018 7:30 PM
Play: Total: 237.0/-109 Under
Washington has had problems with their defence this season, but did play a tougher brand of basketball last time out taking out the LA Lakers 128-110. The team as a whole has been asked to step up and take responsibility in transition . Also with the acquisition of two way hard working Trevor Ariza from Phoenix in a trade, Im looking for him to spark this team to work harder on their stopping abilities starting tonight against their hosts Atlanta. I know Atlanta likes to run and gun , but their offensive efficiency is ranked 28th in the league, and they could easily be slowed here tonight vs a side looking to be more responsible defensively. This will Im betting one of the factors that makes this total beatable with a under wager. Note:Under is 9-4-1 in Wizards last 14 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400. WASHINGTON is 13-4 UNDER off a home win by 10 points or more over the last 2 seasons with a combined average of 209.5 ppg scored. ATLANTA is 19-7 UNDER after scoring 105 points or more 3 straight games over the last 3 seasons with a combined average of 207.6 ppg going on the board. WASHINGTON is 9-1 UNDER vs. sub par rebounding teams - outrebounded by opponents by 5+/game over the last 2 seasons with a combined average score of 207.2 ppg scored.ATLANTA is 22-8 UNDER vs. sub par rebounding teams - outrebounded by opponents by 3+ per game over the last 3 seasons with a combined average of 204 ppg going on the scoreboard. NBA Road teams where the total is greater than or equal to 220 (WASHINGTON) - after 1 or more consecutive wins, a bad team (25% to 40%) playing a team with a losing record are 29-3 UNDER L/22 seasons for a 91% conversion rate for bettors.
