Why bet on the Chicago Bulls
The Chicago Bulls (15-11) are on a 3-game losing skid that has seen them drop all the way down to the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference. They are now just 4-6 in their last 10 games. The Bulls are a less than impressive 9-17-0 ATS this season, and they have only managed to cover 3 times in their last 10 games. While the UNDER has hit more often than not in Bulls games this season, it’s worth noting that the OVER has come up in 4 of their last 5 games, including 3 games in a row now. The Bulls are averaging 100.4 PPG, and are giving up 99.5 PPG.
Why bet on the Oklahoma City Thunder
The Oklahoma City Thunder (19-9) are running away with the Northwest Division, and now have a 6-point lead over the Utah Jazz. They are 8-2 in their last 10 games, and will likely be coming into this on a 3-game winning streak since it is only the Lakers who stand in the way of winning their 3rd in a row. OKC are another team that has not been particularly good ATS this season, as they are 12-16-0 overall. The UNDER has come up in 19 of the Thunder’s 28 games this season, and the OVER/UNDER in OKC home games is 3-12-1. OKC is averaging 107.4 PPG this year, and are giving up 99.5 PPG.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
The Bulls already have a win over the Thunder this season, but that came on home court. Chicago is going to have a much tougher time versus a team that is 13-3 at home this season, especially when they are not playing very good ball.
