Washington Wizards vs Chicago Bulls 2/23/2020 Betting Odds
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.
Players to watch: B. Beal SG 46 GP 46 GS 35.5 MIN 29.1 PTS 1 OR 3.4 DR 4.4 REB 6.2 AST 1 STL 0.4 BLK 3.2 TO 2.2 PF 1.9 AST/TO 22.7 PER

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.
