Chicago Bulls vs. Washington Wizards
The Chicago Bulls look to make light work of the visiting Washington Wizards on Monday night. The Bulls are -12.5 point favorites over the Wizards with an over/under point total set at 189.5.
Head to head, the Wizards are 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings, while the road team is 5-2 ATS in the last 7 meetings and the favorite is 5-0 ATS in the last 5 meetings. The Bulls are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 vs. Eastern Conference and 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 home games, but just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a home favorite of 11.0 or greater. The Wizards on the other hand are 8-20 ATS in their last 28 road games vs. a team with a home winning % of greater than .600 and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games as a road underdog of 11.0 or greater.
Even though they have had to work for it lately, the Bulls continue to pile up the wins, racking up their third straight in overtime against the Pistons last night. The Wizards on the other hand won rare back to back games last week, however they came crashing down with a 103-65 loss in New York in their next outing.
I’m going to keep this one real short. Even though three of Chicago’s last four games have been decided in overtime, with one of those coming just last night, I would probably still take them here if they were a 16-17 point favorite. How can you take the Wizards here and feel confident about it after their 38 point loss in their last road game against New York? It’s been a while since Chicago blew anyone out of the water, so what better time than tonight.
