Wizards vs Bulls Picks and Predictions for Friday, January 7

Boston Celtics vs. New York Knicks game preview, picks and predictions for this Thursday Night NBA basketball game.

Wizards vs Bulls Odds: 

This Wizards vs Bulls game is set to tip off at 8:00pm et at the United Center in Chicago.

The latest Draftkings NBA odds have the Bulls as a -7 point favorite against the spread and the over/under at 219.5 total points.

Washington Wizards Betting Preview: 

These two teams last met on New Years Day, where Demar DeRozan hit that buzzer beating 3-pointer to lead the Bulls to the 120-119 road win. In that matchup, DeRozan and LaVine combined for over half the total points and they both should be able to put up similar numbers this go around.

The Washington Wizards come into this game just one game behind the Hornets for that 8th seed in the Eastern Conference. They sit 19-19 overall, but just 9-12 on the road this season. In their last game on Wednesday, the Wizards shot only 44% from the field and 25% from 3-point land, which is a perfect recipe to get the 114-111 home loss against one of the worst teams in the league, the Houston Rockets.

Washington has been struck by the bug and their bench has been depleted with Bryant, Gill, Waters, Hachimura, and Wanamaker all in health protocols with Harrell listed questionable. So an even heavy load will be placed on Bradley Beal and Kyle Kuzma to try to lead this team to a big upset win against this red hot Bulls.

The Wizards on the road this season have been subpar offensively only scoring an average of 104.6 points per game, while on defense giving up an average of 109 points per game. Washington is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games and the total has gone over in 5 of the Wizards last 7 games.

Chicago Bulls Betting Preview: 

The Chicago Bulls come into this game red hot winning their last 8 games in a row and now at the top of the Eastern Conference at 25-10 overall. They last played Monday Night in the 102-98 win against the horrible Orlando Magic, so with 3 full days of rest they should be well prepared to take care of business against the Wizards.

The Bulls will only have Alex Caruso miss this game due to health protocols.

At home this NBA Season, the Bulls are scoring an average of 111.8 points per game while giving up only an average of 105.6 points per game on defense.

Chicago is 7-0 straight up in their last 7 games at home and total has gone over in 6 of Chicago’s last 7 games against an opponent in the Southeast Division.
