Prediction

Considering the teams' recent performances and statistical trends, the over of 226.5 points appears to be the favorable pick for this game.

Both the Wizards and the Rockets have demonstrated an ability to score points, albeit with varying levels of defensive efficiency. With key players like K. Kuzma and A. Sengun leading their respective teams' offensive efforts, a high-scoring affair is likely.
