Nets vs. Wizards Prediction & Pick

The Nets are starting to find their groove with a core of Durant, Kyrie Irving and Ben Simmons. They have won five of their last seven games and lead the NBA in shooting percentage (49.8%). Brooklyn has a perfect chance to keep their success going given Washington's recent defensive struggles.

The Wizards have allowed an average of 122.3 points over their last three games and rank 29th in defensive efficiency during that span. Seeing them suddenly turn that around at the Barclays Center would be surprising. When these two teams met on Nov. 4, the Nets cruised to a 128-86 victory.

Brooklyn is 4-2 straight up in its last six games against Washington, so I'll side with the Nets.

Final Score Prediction: Nets: 119 | Wizards: 104

Nets vs. Wizards Best Bet

Ben Simmons has been ruled out tonight due to a knee injury. However, it shouldn't matter much as he didn't play against the Wizards during the first head-to-head meeting, either. It was Durant (28 points, 11 assists & 9 rebounds) that torched Washington's defense. Expect more of the same here.

Washington is a dismal 1-5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games and two of its last three losses have come by at least 6 points. On the other side, three of Brooklyn's last four wins have come by at least 6 points. The Nets allow an opposing shooting percentage of just 44.4% (No. 1 in NBA).

Bet: Brooklyn Nets -5 (-110)
