It is the first of a three-game homestand for the Wizards. In this basketball betting series, the Bulls have won 7 of the last 10 but it is Washington that has covered the spread in six of the ten.
NBA betting had the teams meeting last month in Chicago and the Bulls won 121-119 but they did not cover the six-point basketball betting points spread. Chicago has actually done better against the number on the road in this series as they are 3-1 both straight up and against the NBA betting line at Washington. In this series, eight of the last ten have gone under the basketball betting odds.
Chicago has played well recently and has been worth taking in NBA betting. Chicago has won their last four games and six of their last seven. The Bulls are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. the Eastern Conference. The Bulls are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 road games. The Bulls are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall. The one problem for Chicago has been against the Southeast Division as they are 9-23 ATS in their last 32 vs. the Southeast. The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in the last 7 meetings against Washington.
The Wizards are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Wizards are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 vs. the Central Division. Washington is just 11-16 at home this season in NBA betting. The Wizards are a much different looking team than they were earlier this season. They no longer have Caron Butler or Antawn Jamison so it is hard to know what the Wizards will do on a nightly basis. Andray Blatche looks to be one player that can make an impact for the Wizards while Mike Miller and Randy Foye can also score.
Eight of the last nine Washington games against the Central Division have gone over the NBA betting total. That is the only trend for Washington that points to a high scoring game though. Seven of their last nine overall have gone under and eight of their last eleven at home have gone under in NBA betting. The last four meetings between the two teams in Washington have gone under. Chicago has gone under the basketball betting total in 16 of their 29 road games this season.
