Washington Wizards vs Chicago Bulls Spread and Prediction.
Date/Time: 02-10-2018, 20:00 EDT
Spread: Chicago Bulls +5
Bulls have a 19-35 record (30-23-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the 12th place of the East. In their last game they snapped a seven-game losing streak by winning at home against the Timberwolves with a 114-113 score, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Zach LaVine with 17.2 ppg, adding 4.5 rebounds. He is followed by Lauri Markannen with 15.3 ppg and a team high 7.7 rebounds per game, while Kris Dunn adds 13.7 ppg, 4.6 rebounds and a team high 6.4 assists per game but he is out with an injury.
Wizards have a 31-24 record (25-30 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit on the 4th place of the East. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost at home against the Celtics in overtime with a 104-110 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Bradley Beal with 23.7 ppg, adding 4.5 rebounds and 4 assists per game. He is followed by John Wall with 19.4 ppg and a team high 9.3 assists per game but he is out 6-8 weeks due to an injury.
In their previous meeting earlier this season, Wizards won at home with a 114-110 score. Bulls are 12-14 at home so far this season, while Wizards are 14-14 on the road. Wizards are better both offensively, scoring 107.3 ppg to Bulls’ 103.6 and defensively, allowing 105.7 ppg to Bulls’ 109.3. They also have better percentages both in field goals, shooting with 46.57% to Bulls’ 43.78% and in 3-pointers, shooting with 37.02% to Bulls’ 36.14%. Wizards are also better in assists made (24.1 to 23.6), while Bulls are only better in rebounding (44.7 to 42.9). It is going to be a close game and Vegas odds give Wizards a -5 spread but don’t expect them to beat those odds as Bulls will force a closer game than that at home.
