There is a good chance that John Wall makes his return to the Wizards on Tuesday night, which could really give these NBA Odds against the Brooklyn Nets more valuable.

Washington Wizards vs Brooklyn Nets

If Wall is able to make a return to the lineup tonight, the Wizards’ prospects on offense go way up. Not only are they playing against one of the league’s worst defenses, they are getting back a walking double-double and one of the best point guards in a league. It’s almost the same as a starting quarterback means to his offense.

Not only that, but Washington has owned Brooklyn. They are averaging nearly 120 points per game in their last four against the Nets, and Brooklyn has been giving up points in bunches lately.

The Nets are allowing 115.3 points per game at home, and they are scoring nearly 114 per game there as well. Not to mention the Nets will likely get to debut Jahlil Okafor tonight, who could really help them offensively, but will be a downgrade defensively.

It makes the line movement in this one all the more noteworthy. After opening at 213 ½, the line has made its way north of 215 points, and potentiall7 216 before it’s all said and closed tonight.

If Wall is back tonight, and the Nets get Okafor’s services, I could see this one once again being a high-scoring affair between these two teams.
