AustinsProps' Wednesday NBA Article Pick - 12/7
Washington Wizards @ Chicago Bulls (8pm)
We have a massive 11 game NBA slate tonight with tons of value to be had. Looking into this matchup we have a Wizards team who have been extremely inconsistent thus far who currently sit at 11-13 on the year. They take on the Bulls at home who currently sit 9-14 on the year. It’s no secret that this team has underperformed massively, however in this spot at home I really am liking them tonight.
The Wizards are very banged up and will be missing Bradley Beal, Rui Hachimura, and Delon Wright. When you look at this lineup it looks extremely thin. With Beal missing guys like Kuzma, Morris, and Kristaps usage will go up a ton. This is a huge piece removed from their lineup and them being on the road will make it extremely challenging. The Bulls will look to limit Porzingis tonight through Nikola Vucevic matching up with him who’s had some success in the past matching up.
I think Chicago simply benefits with beal missing and I think WAS will struggle trying to limit this fast paced offense. The Bulls likely will have their stars DeMar Derozan and Zach Lavine manage the pace of this game. If Chicago goes on a big run I don’t see the Wizards having the personnel to matchup and form a comeback and for that reason I’m all over Chicago -5 tonight at home.
CHICAGO BULLS -5 @ -110
