Betting Pick:

We are aware that 6 of the last 7 in this matchup have gone over the total including all 3 this season. However, the teams’ current play suggest a play on the under. The Hawks have failed to score in triple digits in 6 of their last 8. The injury to guard Kyle Korver is the main reason for the lack of scoring with Atlanta having a 1-4 O/U record in his absence. He is questionable to play again tonight and with the Wizards new found defense we’ll look to the under.
Take the UNDER 197.5.

Why waste money? Bet this game at and lay -105 instead of -110!
