Wizards are Covering Spreads at Home

Two underperforming Eastern Conference squads that have been plagued by a ridiculous amount of injuries collide Wednesday when the Chicago Bulls invade the Verizon Center to square off with the Washington Wizards. Home cooking has been massive for the Wiz, as Randy Whittman’s crew are 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS in their last eight at home but are just 1-5 SU and ATS and in their last six overall.

Shark Bites
  • The Wizards have scored UNDER half of the posted total in five of their last seven games.
  • The total has gone OVER in 21 of the Bulls' last 29 games after winning the previous game in a matchup.
  • The visiting team is 11-4 ATS in its last 15 games in this matchup.

The depleted Bulls are coming off a huge road win over the Toronto Raptors but once again face roster concerns. Pau Gasol will be sidelined for the contest, while Derrick Rose’s status is up in the air and Mike Dunleavy is questionable as well. The good news for Bulls backers is star shooting guard Jimmy Butler is back in the fold, and sophomore Doug McDermott is finally living up to his potential as a spot up shooter.

Chicago has not won consecutive road games since January 28, and its defense has yielded an average of 109.8 points in the last 12 away from home. Chicago is also 2-11 ATS in their last 13 after winning as an underdog.

Wizards’ dynamic point guard John Wall has stepped up against the Bulls this season, posting 33 points and 17 assists in his first two against the bunch from the Windy City.
