The Wizards have been hotter than any team lately ATS and SU. With the Lakers coming into D.C. on Thursday after getting blasted in several of their most recent road games, it’s time to back the Wizards in their NBA odds once again

LA Lakers At Washington Wizards

Julius Randle is out for a while with pneumonia, and that is a serious hit to an already struggling Lakers team. He has been one of the better all-around players this season, and tonight against the red-hot Wizards,it’s hard to trust the Lakers staying in the game. Plus, the Wizards have won 10 straight games and covered in nine of them. At home they are now 18-8 ATS on NBA odds, while the Lakers are 11-15 ATS on the road.

A big reason for the Lakers’ road struggles has come lately. They have lost 10 straight road games and covered only four of those 10 games. Plus, they have an average margin of -17.1 points. They have lost a couple of games by 40-plus during that stretch, and while I doubt they lose by that much tonight, with the Wizards playing well this one should be an easy cover for Washington.

The Wizards are on a torrid streak covering spreads at home. If you had bet them in their last 15 home games, you’d be 14-1 ATS. That’s pretty tough to bet against, especially against a bad team missing a starter. The Lakers are allowing nearly 112 points per game on the road this season, and over their last 10 road games they are giving up 114.8 points per game.
