Bulls vs. Wizards Odds & Picks: Wizards Cover In Depleted Battle

Betsperts analyst Jennifer Eakins gives her best bets for the Bulls vs. Wizards on Wednesday, January 11th, 2023.

While potentially not the sexiest matchup since both the Chicago Bulls and Washington Wizards are dealing with injuries, the Bulls are heading to Washington, D.C. on Wednesday night with tip-off set for 7:00 PM ET at Capital One Arena. Chicago sits 10th in the East with a 19-22 record, while the Wizards are not far back in 12th at 17-24 heading into this Eastern Conference showdown.

Bulls vs. Wizards Best Bets

Wizards +1.5 (-110 DraftKings)

With both sides of the court nursing injuries to key pieces, this contest should be much closer than if they were at full health. Their points scored per game this season are fairly similar, with the Bulls averaging 114 per tilt and the Wizards putting up 112. Defensively, Washington is allowing close to two fewer points per contest this season than Chicago but needs to recover from a three-game stint where they are yielding 127.3 points to opponents.

The line indicates that the Bulls mostly likely will be without DeMar DeRozan, and Washington could catch a break and sneak the cover with even a sprinkle on the moneyline, too.

Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)

Bulls vs. Wizards Game Total Under 229.5 (-110 DraftKings)

Have I mentioned that both teams are missing their firepower in this matchup? I tend to lean toward overs in most contests but it’s tough to see these squads putting up a lot of points tonight. In their last three games, the Wizards have averaged 111 points per contest, with Chicago posting 117 and that was with DeRozan. On the season, the average both defenses have surrendered per night is 228.8 and that was when healthy for the most part. This should be a low-scoring matchup, so roll with the under tonight.
