Washington vs Portland: prediction for the NBA match
Washington started to win games recently, but Wes Unseld's men played against underdogs. Wizards defeated the Magic (102:100) at first, and then they recorded a victory over Oklahoma (122:118). In the most recent match Wizards beat the Magic once again (112:106).
It will be interesting to see, how Wizards will play against a stronger team. Despite the absence of Lillard, Portland is still a dangerous opponent. At least, players from that team are much stronger than Thunder or Magic have.
Portland Trail Blazers
Portland Trail Blazers are in a difficult situation. Blazers are playing without their leaders. Moreover, Anfernee Simons also missed the previous match. He is not injured, it was reported that he was out for the game against Denver due to personal reasons. He should be available this time.
Weakened Trail Blazers failed to put up a fight to the Nuggets. They suffered a humiliating defeat at Ball Arena (108:140). McLemore, Smith and Little tried to do something, but unfortunately it was not enough for the team to succeed.
In 3 out of 5 most recent matches the Blazers managed to beat that total
Kuzma averages 17,2 points per game at home
Simons will be available to play in the upcoming match. With this player in the line-up Portland managed to beat Sacramento and Brooklyn. We think that Simons' arrival will help the team to put up a fight to Washington. Blazers should avoid a blowout in this game.
Our prediction - Handicap (+8,5) for Portland

With Simons in the line-up Portland perform much better on the offense. For example, Trail Blazers managed to score 114 points in the match against Brooklyn. We are expecting a high-scoring game.
Our second bet is on total over 215,5 points
