The Washington Wizards are one of the hottest teams in the NBA heading into Saturday’s showdown with the Brooklyn Nets. Of course, despite closing out the month of January on a six-game winning streak, the Wizards still have work to do to get above .500. Nevertheless, their recent run has included road wins over Dallas, Houston, and New Orleans, so they won’t be intimidated to face the Nets, especially with three players in Bradley Bear, Kristaps Porzingis, and Kyle Kuzma who all average at least 21 points per game. Washington could also benefit from facing an ice-cold Brooklyn team that’s 4-7 SU and 5-6 ATS in its last 11 games. That stretch has happened without Kevin Durant, who remains out, giving the Wizards another potential advantage. However, there is a chance Ben Simmons will return for Saturday’s game, although that doesn't guarantee the Nets will be ready to take down the red-hot Wizards.

No. 1 Purdue vs No. 21 Indiana
The biggest game of the college basketball weekend is a rivalry in the Big Ten, as the no. 1 Purdue Boilermakers make the short trip to visit the no. 21 Indiana Hoosiers. Purdue has been close to perfect this season, sitting at 22-1, losing only a one-point home game against Rutgers. Even though the Boilermakers have a losing record against the spread this season, they have covered six of their nine games since their loss behind 7’4’’ center Zach Edey. As for the Hoosiers, they had a five-game winning streak snapped earlier this week by Maryland. However, Indiana has just one home loss this season and also has a dynamic big man in Trayce Jackson-Davis. On the other hand, despite impressive wins this year over Xavier, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, the Hoosiers are just 1-5 against the spread as underdogs this season, a trend that doesn’t bode well for them against the top-ranked team in the country.
