3 units on Seattle -8 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73) RESULT: LOSS
This is game 4 of a five-game trip for the Wizards. They were blown out at Denver, beat Utah by a point, then rallied from far back to lose but cover Friday night at the L.A. Clippers. In the game they lost C Brendan Haywood to a broken thumb and they could use him here versus the Sonics and their centers Jerome James and Vitaly Potapenko. The Sonics are on a 5-game winning streak and clinch a playoff spot with a win as they are headed for there first division title since 1997-98. Seattle's on a roll and home teams off 5+ consecutive wins cover the spread 66% of the time in the NBA after the all star break. Washington is 1-9 ATS as a road dog of 6.5 to 12 points this year. Three stars on Seattle vs. a weary Wizards team that is going to run into a buzz-saw tonight.
