The 2016 Washington Wizards are 3-2 both straight up and against the point spread in the second-half of the season. Washington lost a winnable game in Chicago on February 24th. The Wizards are fourth in the division, five and a half games out first place. They are 18-18 vs. The Eastern Conference. The franchise just signed forward J.J. Hickson, who will also backup Marcin Gortat and Nene at Center. Team president Ernie Grunfeld is aware of Hickson’s experience, athletic ability and physical presence in the post.

The key to a Wizards win is to concentrate on defense.
The Philadelphia 76ers are on a six-game losing streak and are 0-3 Against The Spread their last three basketball games. Philadelphia is last in the division and is probably going to stay in the cellar. Reports out of the “CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE” is the team is preparing to offer Atlanta Hawks backup point guard Dennis Schroder a maximum offer. Current point guard Ish Smith is doing a reasonably good job but will come into next season as a backup. Head Coach Brett Brown is keeping the team positive despite their record. Philadelphia ranks at the bottom of the league in offense and defense. Fans in the basketball-crazed Philadelphia deserve a better product on the court. Rookie Jahlil Okafor leads the team in scoring. Power Forward Nerlens Noel is tops on the team in rebounds, steals, and shot-blocks. Both Okafor and Noel can be the future providing a strong interior presence. The key to a 76ers victory is to make open shots.
The Wizards are 5-1 Against The Spread the last six between the teams.
Philadelphia is 1-4 ATS their last five on Friday’s.
