Two teams fighting for the 8th and final playoff place of their respective conference are clashing today, when the Washington Wizards (27-39), looking to end their current small losing streak, are hosting the Sacramento Kings (33-32), who on the other hand want to turn their latest victory into a streak.

Spread: Washington Wizards +1
Washington Wizards have a 27-39 record (31-35 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 11th place of the East. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Timberwolves with a 130-135 score in overtime, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 25.8 ppg, adding 5.2 boards and 5.5 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.
Sacramento Kings have a 33-32 record (38-26-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 9th place of the West. They have won two of their last three matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Knicks with a 102-94 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Buddy Hield with 21 ppg, adding 5.3 boards per game. He is followed by De’Aaron Fox with 17.4 ppg, 3.7 boards and a team high 7.2 dimes per game.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once at home (Wizards by 18 points and Kings by 4). Wizards have a 18-12 home record, while the Kings are 13-18 on the road. Wizards are better offensively, scoring 114.5 ppg to Kings’ 113.6, while Kings are better defensively, allowing 114.7 ppg to Wizards’ 117.2 ppg. Wizards have a better field goal percentage (47% to 46.2%), while Kings have a better 3-point percentage (37.5% to 34.4%). Wizards are better in dimes made (26.8 to 25.4), while Kings are better both in boards grabbed (45.4 to 41.6) and in turnovers committed (13.3 to 13.9). Vegas odds give the Kings a -1 spread for this game but don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the Wizards in this one.
