Chicago At Cleveland NBA Lines, Expert Pick & TV Info

Written by on February 24, 2017

There has been a lot of talk over the past couple of seasons about how the Cleveland Cavaliers, as talented as they are, can look very unfocused at times during the regular season. In truth, it’s a little easy to understand, especially when you look at where they are right now. They are 11 games up in the division and cruising, and they have a 3-game lead at the top of the Eastern Division, a lead that has never really looked in any type of trouble. The Cavaliers have made a habit of beating everyone that they face, but there has been one team that has given them some real problems over the past couple of seasons. That team would be the Chicago Bulls, a division rival that have had the number of the Cavs in their recent meetings. The two Central Division rivals will go head to head once again on Saturday night in Cleveland, with the Bulls looking to maintain their hold over the Cavs. Find the latest NBA betting odds here.

Why bet on the Chicago Bulls

It may seem had to believe given how dominant the Cavaliers have been since LeBron went home, but the Bulls have beaten Cleveland 5 of the last 6 times thy have faced them, including two wins this season. This is all the more surprising when you see that the Bulls are a game below .500 overall this season, and that they have only gone .500 versus teams with winning records. The Bulls are also just 5-6 in division games, but you cannot take away the fact that they have somehow been able to figure out the Cavaliers. What makes all of this more interesting is that there is a legitimate chance that the Bulls could slip to the #8 seed and face the Cavaliers in the opening round of the playoffs. This is a real opportunity to get in the heads of the Cavs.

Why bet on the Cleveland Cavaliers

The Cavaliers are super talented, but they are also just a little frustrating. There are too many nights when it appears as though they ae going through the motions, but they have proven in the past that they can turn it back on when they really need to. They are doing that again now, as they appear to have bounced back after going down to the Thunder last week. They rebounded nicely from that loss and have now won 4-straight, doing so in the style that we have come to expect. The one thing that you can’t take away from this team is their performance at home, where they are 25-5.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

As a fan of trends, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the Bulls have been so dominant versus the Cavaliers of late, but I think Cleveland will come out and buck that trend on Saturday night.
