Washington Wizards vs Chicago Bulls 1/15/2020 Betting Odds
Washington Wizards Betting
Despite Bradley Beal going in and out of the lineup, the Wizards have kept themselves in the hunt for the last seed in the Eastern Conference. They have won three of their last five games, including a back-to-back stunner against the Denver Nuggets (128-114) and the Boston Celtics (99-94).
Players to Watch: Bradley Beal (27.7 PPG, 4.7 RPG and 6.5 APG)
Davis Bertans (15.4 PPG and 5.0 RPG)
Rui Hachimura (13.9 PPG and 5.8 RPG)
Chicago Bulls Betting
The Bulls have dropped seven of their last eight games, but thanks to a weak Eastern Conference, it’s still mathematically possible for them to make a push for a playoff berth. Then again, the time is now to make the move. Zach Lavine is playing excellent basketball, though he will need consistent production from his teammates to end their playoff drought.
Players to Watch: Zach LaVine (23.9 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 4.0 APG)
Lauri Markkanen (15.4 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 1.6 APG)
Coby White (11.3 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2.2 APG)

Washington Wizards vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks
The Wizards are 4-6 in the last 10 games but came through with a pair of big wins against the Nuggets and the Celtics. The Bulls are 2-8 in their last 10 games, and injuries continue to pile up for this team.
Moneyline: If you are willing to gamble, then picking the Wizards at 190 might not be a bad idea. Bradley Beal has finally returned from his injury layoff, giving the team a go-to-guy who can score in the clutch.
ATS: Both are bad ATS teams over the last 10 games, but betting on the Wiz to cover the 4.5-point spread looks like the better option here.
TOTALs: The total opened at 227.5 points. The over/under betting game for both the Wizards and the Bulls have been erratic the past 10 games (5-5), but I feel Washington will be putting up big numbers against Bulls on Wednesday. I pick OVER.
Score Prediction: 123 – 112 Bulls
