Chicago Bulls vs. Washington Wizards NBA Free Pick
Play Chicago Bulls +1.5.
I’m recommending a play on the Chicago Bulls on Friday night. Chicago is off an ugly 97-77 loss to the Utah Jazz last time out and I expect the Bulls to come out focused and ready for action, start to finish on Friday. Chicago played poorly at both ends of the floor, shooting just 33%, while allowing the Jazz to nail 47.4% of their shots. But Tom Thibodeau normally gets his team right back on track after an odd loss.
In fact, his Chicago Bulls’ teams are 27-14 ATS off an upset loss as a home favorite and they’re 37-18 ATS off a home loss in general, holding those 55 opponents to an average of just 89 ppg. We will also be backing the NBA’s best road team, sporting a strong 14-4 SU record away from home.
Washington has played well at home (15-4 SU), but John Wall has never beaten the Bulls when Derrick Rose is in uniform and I expect the streak to continue. The Wizards are 14-2 when Wall scores at least 18 points in a game, but one of those losses came against these Chicago Bulls on December 23, a 99-91 Chicago win. Wall scored 18 points in the loss, but was once again out-done by Rose who threw in 25 points on 10-of-17 shooting. Rose gets a shot to turn around his recent shooting slump and we believe he’ll make the most of it. I’m backing the Chicago Bulls on Friday night.
