    When: Wednesday, November 20, 2019
    Where: Capital One Arena, Washington
    NBA Odds: Spurs (TBA) vs. Wizards (TBA)

    What to know about the Spurs

    The Spurs have not had the best of times in recent weeks. They are currently on a five-game losing run — the most recent of which was a 121-116 defeat to the Portland Trail Blazers. With a 5-8 record, they will need to buck up if they want to continue their run of making it to the postseason.

    What to know about the Wizards

    Although the Wizards ended a three-game losing run with a 137-116 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves, they returned to the loss column on Sunday. Their 125-121 defeat to the Orlando Magic puts them at a current 3-8 record. However, they will have their best opportunity at returning to the win column when they host the Spurs who are enduring a poor run of results.

    Betting trends

    The Spurs have won their last three regular season meetings against the Wizards.

    What to know about the Trailblazers

    The Trail Blazers got back to winning ways with a 121-116 win over the San Antonio Spurs. However, it’s been an all-round poor start to the 2019-20 NBA season for Damian Lillard and company. They are currently 5-8 and will need to be more consistent if they want to repeat their heroics of last season.

    What to know about the Bucks

    The Bucks are in good form having won their last three games. Their most recent victory was a 102-83 win over the Indiana Pacers with Giannis Antetokounmpo continuing to be efficient with 26 points and 13 rebounds. As it stands, their record is 9-3 and given recent form, they should be confident of their chances to beat Portland.

Summer free agent signing Jimmy Butler has been in good form with 18.4 points and 7.2 assists while Kendrick Nunn has averaged 17.8 points. In fact, six Heat players average over 10 points per game. They will fancy their chances against the Bulls.

    What to know about the Bulls

    As they have in recent seasons, the Bulls are struggling. They have won once in their last four games with the most recent being a 117-111 defeat to the Brooklyn Nets. As a result, their regular season record is 4-9. The good news is Zach Lavine is averaging 21.6 points. The bad news is Lauri Markkanen has been poor recently with 14.5 points.

James Harden continues to keep firing on all cylinders as he is averaging a remarkable 39.5 points and 7.8 assists. During that run, they notably beat the Clippers in a 102-93 win in Houston. Can they do it again in Los Angeles? Based on recent form, one would think so.

    What to know about the Clippers

    The Clippers have enjoyed a mixed start to the season. They have won just three of their last six games and currently have an 8-5 record. The good news, though, is that Paul George is back. Having missed the Clippers’ defeat to the Rockets earlier this season, it will be interesting to see how both teams fare with George and Kawhi Leonard on the court at the same time.
