Washington has lost two in a row, but is 6-4 ATS in its last 10 games. The over has gone 7-3. Chicago ended a seven-game losing skid Friday night with a 114-113 home victory over the Timberwolves. The Bulls are 4-6 ATS in their last 10 games. The under has gone 7-3.
The Bulls stunned the Timberwolves last night in the return home for Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson, but Zach LeVine was awesome against his former team with a game-best 35 points. Despite being on a back-to-back, the Bulls are much better at home and are coming in with confidence. The spread seems a bit too wide for my tastes to take the Wizards. Side with the Bulls here.
