Why the Wizards can cover

Chicago no longer has anything to play for on Friday night after clinching the No. 9 seed in the Eastern Conference on Thursday night. The Bulls will host the Hawks in next week's play-in tournament, so they could get caught looking ahead to that matchup. Washington, meanwhile, is trying to give the home crowd one more win before the regular season concludes this weekend. 

The Wizards have already pulled off one upset at home this month, taking down Milwaukee as 13-point underdogs last Tuesday. Shooting guard Corey Kispert had 27 points and seven rebounds, while small forward Deni Avdija added 23 points, eight rebounds and five assists. Chicago has only covered the spread four times in its last 12 games, including a 3-6 mark in its last nine games against Eastern Conference teams. 

Why the Bulls can cover

The Bulls have dominated this head-to-head series in recent years, winning 13 of the last 18 meetings and seven of the last 10 at Washington. They snapped a two-game losing streak with a 127-105 win at Detroit on Thursday, covering the spread as 11-point favorites. Veteran DeMar DeRozan poured in 39 points and dished out seven assists, knocking down 14 of 22 shots from the floor. 

Center Nikola Vucevic added a double-double with 27 points and 11 rebounds, while point guard Coby White chipped in 18 points. They are facing a Washington team that is playing without Kyle Kuzma (ankle), Tyus Jones (back) and Marvin Bagley III (knee). The Wizards are 5-13 against the spread in their last 18 home games played on a Friday. See which team to pick here.
