15* Wizards/Kings NBA Late-Night BAILOUT on Washington +4
Washington vs. Sacramento,
01/16/2013 22:00 EDT,
Score: 94 - 95
Point Spread: +4/-105 Washington
It's no coincidence that the Washington Wizards have won three straight games heading into this contest with Sacramento Wednesday. After knocking off the Oklahoma City Thunder 101-99 on January 7th, John Wall returned to help lead the Wizards to a 93-83 win over the Atlanta Hawks on January 12th.
Wall played an even bigger role in their 120-91 win over the Orlando Magic last time out, scoring 12 points while dishing out six assists in 20 minutes on January 1th. It was also no coincidence that the Wizards had a season-high 29 fast break points against the Magic Monday.
"It just came out of nowhere how fast we're playing now," said Bradley Beal, averaging 18.3 points during the winning streak. "With John back, the speed is so much faster."
"He brings the added dimension that nobody has," coach Randy Wittman said. "Guys have to run harder."
"These games have not been flukes, we've just been playing very well," said guard A.J. Price, who has scored 34 points while shooting 11 of 21 over his last two games. "We lost so many close games that I think once we started losing so many in a row, it became a mental thing."
Now, riding a mental high, I like the Wizards to pick up win No. 4 in a row at Sacramento tonight. The Kings are not playing well right now, losers of four of their last five with their only victory coming at home by a final of 124-118 against the lowly Cleveland Cavaliers. Three of their last four losses have come by 20 points or more.
This play falls into a system that is 45-17 (72.6%) ATS over the last 5 seasons. It tells us to bet on teams (WASHINGTON) - off 2 consecutive home wins by 10 points or more, well rested team - playing 6 or less games in 14 days.
The Wizards are 9-1-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a S.U. win. Washington is 7-1-2 ATS in its last 10 when their opponent allows 100 points or more in their previous game. The Kings are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wizards are 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Sacramento. The underdog is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings. Roll with the Wizards Wednesday.
