Two teams fighting for the 8th and final playoff place of the East are clashing today, when the Washington Wizards (29-39), looking to extend their current small winning streak, are hosting the Charlotte Hornets (30-37), who on the other hand have won only once in their last 5 games.

Spread: Washington Wizards -3.5

Total: +232

Washington Wizards have a 29-39 record (33-35 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. They have back-to-back wins and in their last game they won at home against the Magic with a 100-90 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.8 ppg, adding 5.3 boards and 5.6 dimes per game. He is followed by John Wall with 20.7 ppg and a team high 8.7 dimes per game but he will miss the rest of the season with an injury.

Charlotte Hornets have a 30-37 record (30-36-1 against the spread) so far this season and are currently tied with the Magic in the 9th place of the East. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Rockets with a 106-118 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Kemba Walker with 25.1 ppg, adding 4.3 boards and a team high 5.8 dimes per game. He is followed by Jeremy Lamb with 15.1 ppg and 5.6 boards per game.

In their three previous meetings earlier this season the Hornets lead the Wizards 2-1 wins with each team having won at home. Wizards have a 20-12 home record, while the Hornets are 9-23 on the road. Wizards are better offensively, scoring 114.4 ppg to Wizards’ 110.8, while Hornets are better defensively, allowing 111.8 ppg to Wizards’ 116.8. Wizards have a better field goal percentage (47% to 44.9%), while Hornets have a better 3-point percentage (35.2% to 34.4%). Hornets are better both in boards grabbed (44.1 to 41.8) and in turnovers committed (12.1 to 13.9), while Wizards are better in dimes made (26.7 to 23.2). Hornets are struggling lately and Vegas odds give the Wizards a -2 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home victory.
