Two squads sitting in and out of the playoff spots of the East are clashing today, when the conference leaders Milwaukee Bucks (39-13), who have been red-hot having lost only once in their last 11 games, are hosting the Washington Wizards (22-31), who on the other hand have won once in their last 5.

Spread: Milwaukee Bucks -11.5
Milwaukee Bucks have a 39-13 record (30-19-3 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the first place of the East. They have won ten of their last eleven matches and in their last game they won on the road against the Nets with a 113-94 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Giannis Antetokounmpo with 26.7 ppg, adding team highs both in dimes made with 5.9 and in boards grabbed with 12.6 per game. He is followed by Kris Middleton with 17.3 ppg, 5.8 boards and 4.2 dimes per game.
Washington Wizards have a 22-31 record (23-30 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the 10th place of the East. They have lost four of their last five matches and in their last game they lost at home against the Hawks with a 129-137 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 24.8 ppg, adding 5.1 boards and 5.1 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.
In their two previous meetings earlier this season each team won once (Bucks on the road by 16 points and Wizards at home by 7). Bucks have a 22-4 home record, while the Wizards are 6-20 on the road. Bucks are better both offensively, scoring 117.2 ppg to Wizards’ 113.1 and defensively, allowing 107.2 ppg to Wizards’ 116. They also have better percentages both in field goals (48% to 46.6%) and in 3-pointers (35% to 34.4%). Bucks are also both in dimes made (26.3 to 26) and in boards grabbed (49 to 40.8) and both teams are almost equal in turnovers committed (13.4 to 13.7). Bucks are the absolute favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -11.5 spread and expect them to beat the odds against an inferior Wizards squad.
