The Washington Wizards continue to establish themselves as a force in the Eastern Conference thanks to the dynamic backcourt combo of John Wall and Bradley Beal, and the Wiz will attempt to keep the momentum rolling in the home stretch of the regular season when they pay a visit to the Los Angeles Clippers tonight. Oddsmakers initially set the Clips as 5-point faves with a total of 219.5.
– Shark Bites
- The Clippers are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games at home.
- The total has gone UNDER in five of the Clippers’ last six games as a favorite of 5.0 or less.
- The total has gone OVER in 12 of the Wizards’ last 15 games.
Wall has almost single-handedly engineered a four-game winning streak for his team, willing the Wizards to within 1/2 games of the second-place Cleveland Cavaliers and two games behind the Boston Celtics for the top seed in the conference. Wall recorded 37 points and 11 assists over Cleveland and followed that up with 34 and 14 in Tuesday’s 119-108 triumph over the L.A. Lakers.
Washington overcame a 13-point fourth quarter deficit to defeat the Lakers for its 16th comeback win from a double-digit deficit this season. Wall is averaging 28.8 points, 11 assists and 2.8 steals during the four-game winning streak.
The Clippers are locked into fifth place in the Western Conference but haven’t been able to eclipse the Utah Jazz who are 1 1/2 games ahead of them in the standings. L.A. has recorded eight straight home victories over the Wizards and won 13 of the last 16 meetings between the squads.
The OVER is red-hot when the Wizards and Clippers face off, evidenced by six of the last eight matchups between the clubs.
