Washington enters game five on Tuesday night with the chance to clinch the series victory against the Bulls in Chicago. The Wizards have dominated this series, taking the Bulls to school in all three of their wins. This would have been a sweep if Chicago had not grabbed a three-point victory towards the end of game three. Now, the Bulls are in a ton of trouble, which is why we will back the Wizards on the road as they advance to the second-round.
Wizards making a major statement so far
Through the first four games of this series, the Wizards have made it known to the rest of the NBA that they are here to play and have built a strong foundation to win. Now, they are just one win from securing a first-round series victory over the Chicago Bulls. This series might have played out a little differently if the Wizards had to defend against Derrick Rose, but that is not the case as the Wizards prepare to move forward in the post-season.
Bulls in hot water with no signs of life
Aside from a three-point win in game three of this series, the Bulls have shown absolutely no life so far. They are running out of time to wake-up, and even if they do win game five, they still might not have enough left to overcome their 3-1 series deficit. Chicago, in order to win tonight, will need to get off to a fast start so Washington cannot do the same thing and put Chicago in a hole.
When Chicago and Washington collide for game five on Tuesday night, plenty will be at stake for the Bulls in front of their home fans. The Bulls are four-point favorites at SportsBetting.ag, but we still like Washington in this contest as they advance in the playoffs. We will drop 10 percent of our bankroll on the Wizards and the OVER 183 total points scored at -110 tonight.
