Bulls vs Nets Pro Basketball Odds Analysis

Posted by Henry Watkins on Wednesday,March 16, 2016 10:21, EST in

When you have a rich NBA history, there is a certain assumption that you are a team that will always be present once the postseason rolls around. The game is changing, though, and teams like the LA Lakers are no longer the force that they once were. Another big name team that is in danger of missing out on the postseason this year is the Chicago Bulls, although their reason for potentially not making it is somewhat different than that of the Lakers. Chicago are a team that have been riddled with injuries to key players all season long, and while the bench guys have done all they can to keep this team afloat, it really is beginning to look as though those injuries are beginning to take a toll. The visit of the Brooklyn Nets on Thursday night is the type of match-up that you would expect the Bulls to win, but you just never know these days.

Why bet on the Brooklyn Nets

Let’s not try to pretty things up here for the Brooklyn Nets (19-48). This is a team that has been nothing short of awful all season long. They have just 4 wins in their last 10 games, and just snapped a 4-game losing skid by beating the Philadelphia 76ers, which isn’t really anything to write home about. That said, one of their 19 wins this season came against the Bulls at the United Center, so this is not necessarily the slam dunk that you might consider it to be. The Bulls are a wounded animal, and Brooklyn may just be able to act on that. Extrapolate things a little further, and you will see that the Nets have actually won 2 of their last 3 games in the Windy City. Brooklyn are averaging 98.2 PPG, and are giving up 104.4 PPG.

Why bet on the Chicago Bulls

No matter how much you may dislike this franchise, you have to feel some level of sympathy for the Chicago Bulls (33-32). The have had to deal with more than their fair share of injuries, and the fact that they are clinging to the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference is a testament to their tenacity. At the end of the day, though, grit and determination may not be enough to get the job done. The Bulls are just 4-6 in their last 10 games, but the good news is that they have gone 21-12 on home court this season, which may give them a slight edge here. Chicago are averaging 101.6 PPG, and are giving up 102.9 PPG.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The recent history between these two teams shows that we really shouldn’t take the Bulls home court advantage for granted. That said, I still think Chicago are good enough to pick up the win in what should be a close game.
