NBA: Bulls to crash out in Tuesday night treble
Chicago’s postseason will come to a close at the United Center tonight with defeat to Washington Wizards ending the Bulls’ play-off run.
While this may be upsetting for Windy City residents, others can make the most of the situation by backing the Wizards for glory as part of this Tuesday night treble.
A Wizards win, along with home victories for Oklahoma City and the LA Clippers could return £47.63 from a stake of just £10 at odds of over 7/2.
Chicago came into this seven-game series with a lot of confidence but the Bulls are now staring elimination in the face with Washington leading 3-1 and one win away from progressing.
With Tom Thibodeau’s men enjoying home advantage it’s tempting to back the Bulls to earn a stay of execution but with the United Center residents losing six of their last 20 at home the Wizards will be confident of getting the result they need.
Randy Wittmans’ men have now won seven of the Last 10 meetings and are on a five-game win streak on the road so expect the visitors to triumph.
The highly-fancied Thunder have not had things their own way as expected and go into this game with the series tied at 2-2.
However, home advantage will come into play in this one, with Kevin Durant and co. winning seven of their last eight in front of their own fans.
The head-to-head stats, 5-5 from the last 10, show that this could be a tight encounter but with the Thunder able to take a giant step toward progression expect KD to deliver.
LA can put their off-court controversies to one side tonight and let their basketball to the talking at the Staples Center.
With the series tied at 2-2 and both teams winning five of the last 10 meetings this match-up is set to be fiercely contested but home advantage should tell for a Clippers side that has lost just three of it last 15 as hosts.
The Warriors are 4-2 from their last six and such form will inspire the injury-free Clippers to take a 3-2 lead to California.
