The Wizards have been almost unbeatable at home lately and they face the Knicks tonight, who will likely be without Derrick Rose. Considering the Wizards have won eight of their last nine ATS and SU at home, I’m keeping the streak alive tonight.

  New York Knicks vs Washington Wizards


The Knicks may be +8 underdogs on tonight’s slate, but they are still overvalued. They will likely not have Derrick Rose for tonight and after he dropped 20-plus points in both of their first two meetings with Washington, he will be missed tonight.

While Brandon Jennings is a very good fill-in, he will be no match for John Wall tonight. Neither Knicks point guard is very good on defense, but Jennings is going to be much worse than what Rose could have given New York tonight.

That being said, the Wizards are primed for a big win and cover here. The Knicks are still coming off their four-overtime game for Sunday, while the Wizards have been excellent ATS when playing at home.

Washington is 17-8 ATS this season when playing at home and they have won and covered eight of their last nine home games. Considering they have won and covered four straight games against the Knicks dating back to last season, it’s time again to lay the points with the Wizards for your NBA picks.
