With Bayless beginning the season as starting point guard over Markelle Fultz, there is a clear talent advantage at the position for the Washington Wizards to exploit. Wall is capable of putting any team away all by himself when he’s on, and Scott Brooks will be heavily leaning on his star man in what is a favorable matchup for the Wizards.
The last time we saw the Wizards at home in the then Verizon Center, now the Capital One Arena; John Wall was standing on the scorer’s table after hitting a game winner against the Celtics in one of the most memorable games in franchise history.
John Wall and co. have gone on the record stating that anything short of an Eastern Conference Finals appearance would be a disappointment. On Wednesday, the quest for 50 wins and that Eastern Conference Finals appearance begins.
While the Wizards are the better team and were a money machine last season at home both ATS and SU, I still have questions about their bench. Once Beal and Wall leave the game for rest, the Wizards do struggle to keep a lead, allowing teams to come back and position itself for a cover. Also, the 76ers were this feisty team that played hard last year and covered a lot of numbers on the road. This year, there’s talent to go with that scrappiness. I’ll take my free buckets with the road team in this spot.
