The Washington Wizards hit the road and will visit the Chicago Bulls at the Barclays Center on Wednesday night. These teams faced each other earlier this month in Washington where the Bulls outscored the Wizards 128-86.
The Wizards have lost 3 of their last 4 games and are 3-6 on the road so far this season with an 11-10 record overall ranking 1st in the Southeast Division. The Wizards have gone 7-8 against Eastern Conference opponents. Washington has a 4-4 record in games decided by at least 10 points.
Bradley Beal is averaging 23.5 points and 5.6 assists for the Wizards. Kristaps Porzingis is averaging 20.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks over the past 10 games for Washington.
In their last 10 games the Wizards are 6-4, averaging 114.4 points, 41.3 rebounds, 24.8 assists, 7.1 steals and 5.8 blocks per game while shooting 46.5% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 111 points per game.
The Bulls get here with a 3-4 record and 2-2 on the road so far this season ranking 3rd in the Central Division. In their last game, they lost 114-109 against the Philadelphia 76ers. DeRozan, who reached the 20,000-point milestone in Friday’s loss at San Antonio, led Chicago with 24. Nikola Vucevic added 23 points and 19 rebounds. The 6-foot-10 center from Montenegro made five 3-pointers.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington's last 5 games.
Washington are 2-4 SU in their last 6 games against Chicago.
Washington are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games on the road.
Washington are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Chicago.
The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Chicago's last 16 games.
Chicago are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Chicago's last 6 games at home.
The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Chicago's last 9 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.
The Bulls have won 3 of their last 4 games and they have been playing better defense since Kyrie Irving returned. The Wizards offense exploded in their last game scoring 142 points vs Twolves. I expect a high scoring game as both offenses are hot right now. Take the over.
PICK: Over 229.5 (-110)
