The Washington Wizards are one of the hotter teams in the league with wins in 13 of their last 17 games and they nearly beat the Hawks on Monday without Beal. At the time of this article posting, Beal is probable to play. The Atlanta Hawks are winning their last five games by an average of 9.2 points, but they’ve been hit or miss all season long and aren’t a team you should be willing to lay big chalk with. The Wizards have been the better team this season and at full strength, it’s hard to turn down the free points here.
