Wizards vs. Bulls Free Pick
The Chicago Bulls look to make it a three-game winning streak tonight when they host the Washington Wizards at 8PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Bulls are a slight favorite at home tonight, as they are getting odds of -1.5 points against the Wizards. The over/under total for the contest has been set at 210 points.
Chicago is 29-26 on the season, 18-10 at home and 22-33 against the spread. Washington is 26-29 overall, 12-13 on the road and 29-26 against the spread. Washington won the lone meeting this season, 114-100. The game was in Chicago and the Wizards were an 8.5-point underdog. Washington has won and covered in five of its last seven against the Bulls, three times as an underdog.
Just when it looked like the Bulls were mailing it in, having lost five straight and losing Jimmy Butler to a knee injury, the team has now rattled off two straight wins at home, including a 10-point win over the Raptors last week. Chicago has also covered in three straight. Washington has been pretty strong at the betting window lately, going 6-2 against the spread in its last eight. However, the Wizards have failed to cover in two straight road games. Washington is also just 10-15 against the spread this season after a win. The Wizards have been an erratic team all season, hovering around the .500 mark but never quite getting there. Chicago seems to have woken up from their slumber and are playing at a high level lately. Expect that to continue against the streaky Wizards.
