Over/Under Total Pick:
Technically both of these teams have something to play for so we may see some effort on defense. The Wizards are playing good defense allowing only one opponent to reach 100 points in their last 10 games which has helped their last 5 games to stay under the total line. The Heat hasn’t been playing their best D of the season and that is reflected in their 2-4 straight up record in recent games. They need to ramp up the defense to be able to have any kind of playoff run and I believe that starts tonight in Washington.
Take the UNDER 191.5.
