The Washington Wizards and Chicago Bulls meet Monday in the NBA action at the United Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Wizards vs Bulls prediction.

Washington Wizards

The Washington Wizards have been one of the more disappointing teams all season, but they've come to life with four wins in their past nine outings and are now aiming for a third straight win after sneaking past the Raptors in a 112-109 win on Saturday. Deni Avdija led the team with 22 points, 13 rebounds and five assists, Corey Kispert and Jordan Poole each scored 18 points while Kyle Kuzma chipped in with 16 points, nine rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Wizards shot 47 percent from the field and 11 of 35 from the 3-point line as they played surprisingly good defense to keep them within striking distance all the way until the fourth quarter where they exploded for 35 points to come away with the unlikely victory at home despite little support from their bench players.

Chicago Bulls

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in a rut as they've lost five of their last eight games overall and they will be hoping to snap a two-game skid after getting routed by the Celtics in a 124-113 loss on Saturday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 28 points, six rebounds and nine assists on 12 of 19 shooting, Nikola Vucevic, Alex Caruso and Ayo Dosunmu each scored 14 points while Coby White chipped in with 11 points and 10 assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 57 percent from the field and nine of 24 from the 3-point line as they withstood an early barrage from the Celtics to keep the game within single digits until they went cold and managed just 21 points in the fourth quarter to allow the Celtics to slip away.

  • Alex Caruso ranks 2nd in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for steals per game (1.6) this season.
  • Nikola Vucevic ranks 10th amongst qualified players for rebounds per game (10.5) this season.

  • Deni Avdija ranks 14th in the Eastern Conference amongst qualified players for FG% (50.9%) this season.

Matchup/League Facts

  • The Bulls rank 30th in the league for opponent three-point field goals attempts per game this season (39.6).
  • The Bulls rank 29th in the league for opponent three-point field goals made per game this season (14.5).
  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for opponent points per game this season (123.7).
  • The Wizards rank 30th in the league for rebounds per game this season (40.8).

Wizards vs Bulls prediction

The Wizards are still missing a bunch of players with Landry Shamet, Tyus Jones and Isaiah Livers all out, while the Bulls are expecting to have Alex Caruso, Coby White and Dalen Terry available for this one. The Wizards have sprung to life with a couple of surprising wins, but the Bulls were on a nice run before they got stopped in their tracks by the red-hot Celtics in their last game. The line seems hefty for this one, but I'm not convinced with the Wizards last two wins and I think the Bulls can get a much-needed victory at home in this one.
