After failing to beat the Heat on Sunday, the Bulls will play one of the worst teams in the league on Monday night as they travel to DC to play the Wizards. The Heat are among the best teams in the league and the Bulls missed a few late-game opportunities to tie or get the lead, so there’s little doubt they’ll be looking to redeem themselves and pound the Wizards.
Chicago hasn’t experienced a consecutive regular season. Losing since Febuary 5-7, 2011 there’s little chance they are going to drop one towards Washington. The Bulls have won the last 6 matches between the two squads, and beat the Wizards in their last three competitions by an average of over 20 ppg. The most recent time the two squads played one another was January 11, which was a 78-64 Bulls win even with the team being without starting point guard Derrick Rose.

This time, Rose will be back, and he’s arriving off of a 34-point displaying in Miami, a match where he missed his final 2 free throws and final field goal. But might the Wizards be turning a corner with new interim coach Randy Wittman? After going 2-15 to start the season, the team has won two of their last three matchups after head coach Flip Saunders was fired.
Whilst the Bulls have been powerful at home and on the road, earning an 8-4 road record, the Wizards have had trouble everywhere. They are 3-8 playing in DC, which is markedly greater than their 1-8 record when playing away from home. Their defense is their worst enemy, allowing over 98 ppg on average.
Maybe with a new coach, the Wizards will realize more of their talent to be a decent – although not great – squad this year. However the online sportsbook continues to be giving the edge to the Bulls, listing them as the 8.5 point faves to win. The total is scheduled at 190.5.
