This contest between two relatively even teams has seen sharp action completely alter the odds.
The two teams have roughly the same against the spread records. Washington is 12-15-1 while Sacramento is 12-16.
And each team has its deficiencies, though on different sides of the ball.
The Kings have one of the worst defenses in the NBA, ranking 28th overall in adjusted defense, according to NBA Stats. Meanwhile, the Wizards are 22nd overall in adjusted offense.
Despite Sacramento’s terrible defense, their adjusted offense is actually above-average at 13th. The Wizards have the 17th-best defense out of the 30 teams in the league.
Washington will be missing Rui Hachimura due to injury and Kyle Kuzma is questionable because he’s on the COVID-19 protocol list.
Sacramento is dealing with their own coronavirus issues. Interim head coach Alvin Gentry will miss this game after testing positive for the virus. It’s unclear as of Wednesday afternoon if any players have tested positive.
