The Wizards head to Phoenix to take on the Suns on Saturday night. We’ve got a bit of narrative in this matchup. The two PGs are both sides — Chris Paul and Russell Westbrook — were traded for each other not too long ago. Now, both players are on different teams following that deal between the Rockets and Thunder. CP3 vs. Russ is primetime TV and this matchup should be up in pace and high scoring. Let’s look at the lines on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Washington Wizards vs. Phoenix Suns 10:00 p.m. ET

Pick ATS: Wizards +12

If Bradley Beal and Westbrook are both healthy, I’ll opt to take the points despite this being a matchup between one bad team and one good team. Bad in the sense that the Wizards can’t play defense and are 19-32 and the Suns can play defense and are 36-15, second place in the West. The Wizards have ripped off two straight road wins and have some momentum. Washington is actually 14-11 on the road ATS this season, which isn’t awful. If Beal is going to play, I’ll ride the Wiz. If Beal is out, try and hop on the Suns while the spread is low or get the in-game line if it goes down a bit.
