Why Bet on the Chicago Bulls

Chicago had pretty big expectations for this season. While they are winning, fans always want more. They have won three games in a row and may have found their groove. Unfortunately, injury has set in for the Bulls. Noah is out for the year, Butler is injured and Rose got hurt a couple games ago. Those are three huge pieces to this team. The Subs (Doug McDermott and Taj Gibson) have really been stepping up in the absence of the starting players which is a big plus. The Bulls should be underdogs in this game which is always intriguing.

Why Bet on the Atlanta Hawks

Atlanta is 17-12 at home and really plays great ball in their place. Another thing the Hawks have in their favor is the 113-90 victory they had over the Bulls a couple weeks ago. That surely will give Atlanta some confidence in this one. They are healthy and playing pretty good ball since the All Star Break. Paul Millsap leads the Hawks in both scoring and rebounding and will be a force the Bulls can’t contend with. With the Bulls having key injuries it may be the time to bet on the Hawks.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction

This should be a really solid game from start to finish. We look for the Bulls to be competitive but in the end, Atlanta will walk away with the win and the cover. Both teams have been below average against the spread this season. Chicago is just 23-33 ATS and Atlanta is 27-30 ATS.The odds are set at Hawks -5 and our pick is Atlanta -5. The final score prediction for this game is Atlanta Hawks 103 and Chicago Bulls 92.
