Washington Wizards vs Chicago Bulls 2/8/2021 Betting Odds
Washington Wizards Betting
The Washington Wizards have been very disappointing to say the least as this team is just a few games behind the league’s worst Detroit Pistons. This is quite an understatement since this team boasts former league MVP Russell Westbrook and one of the most prolific scorers right now in Bradley Beal. Thomas Bryant’s season-ending injury is the biggest blow as the team has a big void in the center position in which Robin Lopez can’t fill in. This team still has some promising players in Rui Hachimura and Deni Avidja but they have not been fulfilling their potential.
Players to watch: B. Beal SG 19 GP 19 GS 35.2 MIN 33.2 PTS 1.5 OR 3.6 DR 5.1 REB 4.3 AST 1.3 STL 0.6 BLK 3.1 TO 2.6 PF 1.4 AST/TO 24.94 PER
R. Westbrook PG 14 GP 14 GS 32.9 MIN 19.4 PTS 1.6 OR 7.6 DR 9.2 REB 9 AST 0.8 STL 0.4 BLK 4.9 TO 2.9 PF 1.9 AST/TO 15.51 PER
T. Bryant C 10 GP 10 GS 27.1 MIN 14.3 PTS 1.8 OR 4.3 DR 6.1 REB 1.5 AST 0.4 STL 0.8 BLK 1.1 TO 3.1 PF 1.4 AST/TO 19.05 PER.
Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls have been on an up and down trend. At this point, it is really hard to see them coming out of it as their core combination of Coby White, Lauri Markkanen and Zach LaVine. The team needs to make moves soon and LaVine has been the subject of trade rumors. The experiment has been overdue and this young group of players need to go elsewhere as they try to find the next centerpiece player. Rookie Patrick Williams has been doing well but his talents have a lot to go if given the right positioning. Expect that there will be moves very soon.
Players to Watch: Z. LaVine SG 22 GP 22 GS 35.4 MIN 27 PTS 0.6 OR 4.7 DR 5.3 REB 5.3 AST 1.2 STL 0.5 BLK 3.9 TO 2.7 PF 1.4 AST/TO 21.8 PER
L. Markkanen PF 14 GP 14 GS 30.4 MIN 19.1 PTS 0.6 OR 5.5 DR 6.1 REB 0.9 AST 0.6 STL 0.4 BLK 1.7 TO 2.2 PF 0.5 AST/TO 17.3 PER
C. White PG 22 GP 22 GS 33.5 MIN 15.2 PTS 0.4 OR 4.3 DR 4.6 REB 5.5 AST 0.5 STL 0.1 BLK 2.5 TO 2.5 PF 2.2 AST/TO 10.84 PER.
