March Madness is about to conclude in a mere matter of days. Next up on the sports networks radar will be to profile the NBA playoffs. From mid-April until the Finals conclusion in June, series upon series will be played out. A potential first round matchup in the Eastern Conference is the Bulls vs Wizards. Currently the Bulls are a .5 game back of the Raptors for the third seed, while the Wizards hold the sixth.

A lot can change in the handful of games left in the regular season. But in tonight’s regular season game between the Bulls and Wizards I’d expect a playoff type atmosphere. The Wizards are coming off a hard fought win last night at Madison Square Garden, while the Bulls had were able to win against the short handed Bucks by twelve points.

The line opened on this game as even, and has shot up to the home town Wizards -2.

The money play is on the Wizards at home in my estimation. They’ve been an underrated defensive team and should be able to outplay the Bulls on the offensive end with their guard play. If this was a game a month or two ago it wouldn’t be a play, due to the inconsistent effort on behalf of the Wizards.

This time of year though with their first trip to the playoffs in many years forthcoming, that should not be an area to worry about. Play the Wizards tonight.
