Washington at Denver
Tuesday 03/22 09:05 PM Eastern
3 units on Washington +8.5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73) RESULT: LOSS
Expect this line to move up as the day goes along and there is a reason for it. Denver has been en fuego of late winning 11 of their last 12, but has started to appear a little bored in doing so. The teams they have been beating are not exactly world beaters. Yes, they are blowing teams out but we need to temper our enthusiasm here just a bit. The Wizards may be the second best team to play them at home during the streak, with the Suns being the best. They are not going to cover forever, and the lines are starting to shift towards the sky. Washington is better than the Bucks, and we will get a better line tonight with the Wizards. I have little doubt that Denver will win, but the Wizards should get the cover here. Again, this will probably move up higher throughout the day. If it goes down to eight jump on it, but I suspect we could see 10 by tip. Three stars on the Wizards tonight.
