Wizards vs Bucks Prediction | NBA Picks

Moreover, pertaining to betting records, Washington is 13-10 as a favorite, 10-16 as an underdog and 7-16-1 ATS away, while Milwaukee is 28-13 as a favorite, 3-8 as an underdog and 10-17 ATS at home. Keep in mind, Bradley Beal is out for the Wizards tonight. To add insult to injury, as stated above, Washington is on a five-game skid. They can defeat the Bucks on the road, but it will be a greater challenge without Beal. Leading into this matchup, Milwaukee is a 11-point favorite.

Additionally, while the Bucks could probably still win, they have a bad habit of surrendering close leads during garbage time. This is why some bettors are picking the Wizards to cover the spread. Milwaukee has failed to cover the spread 17 times at home this season. All things taken into account, pick the Bucks to win, they will cover the spread and the total will go under 227.
