Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Nets dropped their last three games after back-to-back wins over Portland 119-115 and New Orleans 135-125 last week. Kyrie Irving has been playing with a bummed shoulder, and that injury is noticeably affecting his performance in the last three games. Caris Levert, one of the Nets’ scoring leaders, will also miss quite a number of games due to a thumb injury.

Players to Watch: Kyrie Irving (28.5 PPG, 5.4 RPG, 7.2 APG), Spencer Dinwiddie (17.1 PPG and 4.6 RPG), Taurean Prince (13.0 PPG and 6.5 RPG)

Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls suffered 124-115 loss to Central Division rival Milwaukee Bucks, but they should nevertheless be contented with the turnout (2-2 record) in their last four games. Zach Lavine, Lauri Markkanen and Coby White are leading the team in the scoring department, while Wendell Carter Jr. emerges as a game-changing factor on both ends of the floor. The former Duke standout is averaging 13.3 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1 block in his second NBA season.

Players to Watch: Zach LaVine (20.4 PPG, 4.1 RPG, 4.4 APG), Lauri Markkanen (14.4 PPG, 7.5 RPG, 1.9 APG), Coby White (13.7 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 2.3 APG)

Brooklyn Nets vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks

Legal betting sites are optimistic about the Nets sustaining their dominance over the Bulls after winning 3 of 4 regular-season games with Chicago last season. However, with the possibility of Irving sitting out Saturday’s ballgame, the Bulls could be in a position to pull off a SU and ATS win.

Moneyline: The Bulls’ chances of winning the game will be dependent on Kyrie Irving’s availability. If the All-Star point guard takes an off-day, expect Chicago to take control of the game and hold on to a narrow win at home, where they are 2-3 this season.

ATS: Saturday’s win would push the Bulls to 5-1 ATS in the last six games.

TOTALs: This game will go UNDER the total, which opened at 231.5 points. The Nets failed to exceed the century mark for the first time this season in their last game against the Nuggets. Moreover, the possibility of not having Irving on the floor should indicate lesser point production from the Nets.

Score Prediction: 110-103 Bulls
