John Wall and the Washington Wizards make their lone trip to Oakland on Tuesday to take on reigning MVP Stephen Curry and the defending NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. The Dubs look to sweep the season series for the fifth time in the last six years.

The premier point guard matchup did not disappoint in the first meeting between Golden State and Washington. Curry and Wall combined for 92 points, 12 assists, 10 rebounds and five steals in the Warriors' 134-121 victory. You can catch all of the fireworks from the last game below:



Golden State opens up the betting lines as 13 point favorites over Washington according to virtual sportsbook BetOnline. It is the 10th straight game that Golden State is favored at home by at least 10 points. However the Dubs have managed to cover the spread just once in their last five games according to OddsShark.com

The last time that Washington was a double digit underdog was all the way back on February 3rd when they hosted the Warriors. The Wizards are 0-2 ATS as double digit underdogs this season.

The OVER/UNDER line for Tuesday's contest currently sits at 226.5 total points. In their last four games, the Wizards and Warriors have averaged a combined 229 total points. The total has gone OVER in four of Washington's last six games on the road. But as Golden State ramps up their defense come playoff time, the total has gone OVER only once in their last five games.
