Charlotte Hornets Betting
The Charlotte Hornets closed their campaign just before the All-Star break on a strong note, registering wins against the Detroit Pistons, 76-87, and the Minnesota Timberwolves, 115-108. Second-year sensation Devonte’ Graham, who has emerged as one of the top contenders for Most Improved Player of the Year, put up terrific stats line in those games. He finished with 14 points, 11 assists and 7 rebounds against the Pistons and followed it up with 28 points, 8 assists and 4 rebounds against the Timberwolves.
Players to Watch: Devonte’ Graham (18.1 PPG, 3.6 RPG and 7.8 APG)
Terry Rozier (17.8 PPG, 4.5 RPG, and 4.1 APG)
Miles Bridges (13.0 PPG, 5.5 RPG and 1.7 APG)
Chicago Bulls Betting
The All-Star Weekend in Windy City allowed everyone to forget another disappointing season for the Chicago Bulls. With the mid-season festivities over, the Bulls face reality once more as they enter the second half of the season trying to stay relevant in what appears to be another early exit for once-proud franchise.
Players to Watch: Zach Lavine (25.3 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 4.1 APG)
Coby White (11.1 PPG, 3.5 RPG, 2.4 APG)
Tomas Satoransky (10.3 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 5.3 APG)

Charlotte Hornets vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks
Online Bookmakers are making a gamble here by putting the undermanned Bulls as the favorites over the Hornets, who played solid basketball in back-to-back games. The Bulls have Zach Lavine balling like crazy the last two months, but a supporting cast hampered by injuries certainly doesn’t bode well for this team going forward.
Moneyline: Bet on the Hornets at +170. Charlotte’s last two games showed a glimpse of the future with Graham leading the charge. The Hornets lead their regular-season series against the Bulls 2-1, including a 10-point win, 83-73, last December 13.
ATS: Bet on the Bulls to cover the spread. I am expecting another toe-to-toe matchup between these two teams, who had two nail-biting games earlier this season.
TOTALs: Back the UNDER at 200.5 points. Based on the scores of their last game, it all seems that this game is heading to another low-scoring game.
Score Prediction: 95 – 93 Hornets
