Score: 111 - 118
Point Spread: +1/-115 Chicago
his is a 10* GAME OF THE WEEK on the Chicago Bulls.
REASONING: The Hornets had won two straight and five of six before falling 121-109 at home to the Cavs on Saturday. The Bulls come in off their second straight loss and fifth in their last sixth after an embarrassing 116-96 setback at home to Milwaukee on Saturday. The Bulls play with revenge though today, as the Hornets have won three straight in the series, including a 103-91 victory at home in the first matchup this year on December 23rd, 2016. Charlotte is ranked 16th in the league in scoring at 104.9 PPG and ranked eighth in scoring in allowing 102.6. Chicago is ranked 23rd in the league in scoring with an average of 100.5 PPG. Note that the Bulls are first in rebounding with 47.7 PPG. The Bulls are tough defensively as well, ranked sixth in allowing 100.6 PPG. Note that Charlotte is just 1-3 ATS this year after a loss by ten points or more, while Chicago is 3-1 ATS as a home fav of three points or less. We think the home side is much “hungrier” today and look for this determination to pay dividends once it’s all said and done. Play on CHICAGO.
