Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Chicago Bulls have been miserable for weeks. The team has not gotten along, and they are not playing consistent team basketball at all. The Chicago Bulls are going to miss out on the playoffs, and have to play their final two games next week against the 76ers and the Pelicans. Look for one of their Central Division rivals to put them out of their misery with a blowout win on Saturday. Expect the Cavaliers to play their top roster, and win this big. Bet the Cleveland Cavaliers -7.5 over the Chicago Bulls.
The final score prediction: Cavaliers 108 and Bulls 92.
