Against the Spread Pick
The Wizards are not good but they are one of the more interesting teams in the league. They can score and even with injuries they are able to put a scare in and beat some good teams. When they play teams who appear to be more their level they are not getting the job done as well. This game will fall into the latter. Bradley Beal was back in the lineup and that will definitely give them a chance to win on the road. The Bulls have been bad all season but at the same time they have not been seeing much development either. Wendell Carter is hurt again which should mean that Lauri Markkanen can get off and we have been waiting for that to happen a lot of the season. Zach LaVine is scoring almost 25ppg but nobody gets more empty calories than that dude. Look for Beal to outplay LaVine and Washington to get the cover here.
Over Under Pick
The Wizards are the worst defensive team in the league. That has led to more over than unders on the season but not a huge difference. What is really drawing me in is the fact that they are giving up an average of 121ppg on the road this season. Even the Bulls should be able to score a lot in this one. Take the over.
