Washington Wizards Betting

The Washington Wizards need to find a way to play good basketball until the final buzzer. They were favorites against the Cleveland Cavaliers but lost steam in the end. Bradley Beal and David Bertans are doing well offensively but bench support is needed. The Bulls may be undermanned but the boys of head coach Jim Boylen are putting up a good fight. Washington has struggled on the road, another reason why Chicago may pull this one off.

Chicago Bulls Betting

With several players out injured, the eight-game skid of the Chicago Bulls is understandable. However, that is no excuse for them to try to win. Zach LaVine needs to play consistently and join hands with Coby White. Defense has been key to their success this season, meaning Boylen may try to contain Beal and other key players on Sunday. Chicago needs to limit the Wizards better than their average of 109.4 point average.

Washington Wizards vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks

On paper, the Wizards roster is better compared to the Bulls. Unfortunately, they are playing on the road again and Washington has not done so well. It all depends on how the Bulls respond to Boylen. They are expected to focus on defense and this is perhaps why basketball lines are picking them to triumph. The game means more to Washington, currently at 9th spot out East. The Wizards are trying to catch up to the Orlando Magic and every win counts.

Moneyline: The ML handed to the Wizards for this game is at -106 while the Bulls are at -104 at home.

ATS: -1 is given to the Wizards across the spread while on the other side of the line are the Bulls with +1.

TOTALs: 231.5 is the given total for this match with the Wizards going over and the Bulls the team under.
