The Washington Wizards are a different team when they play at home and their offensive success has been the biggest reason. Now coming in against another team that ranks in the bottom 10 in defensive efficiency and the NBA Odds are screaming for an over play.

  Wolves vs. Wizards 

The Wizards are not a great team, but they can fool you into thinking they are when they play at home this season. Washington is 13-6 SU and 12-7 ATS when playing at the Verizon Center this season and they are averaging over 108 points per game.

Enter the Wolves, who have started to figure things out on defense, but they too have had some issues stopping people when they go on the road.

Leave out their last game against the Sixers, who have very little offense and you can see why the Wolves have been bad on defense away from Minneapolis. They have allowed over 106 points per game on the road this season and overall they are still allowing 110.4 points per 100 possessions.

If the Wizards push the pace some here, which they have started to do at home, the over is going to cash for us easily in this one. Both of these teams rank among the bottom 10 teams in the league in defensive rating and while they have yet to play one another this season, last year they had a game that finished 132-129. I doubt we see that high of a score tonight, but one like 110-105 is not out of the question.
