Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls after winning six consecutive games have lost their last two against the Memphis Grizzlies and the most recent was a 13-point loss against the Miami Heat, 99-112. During that match, DeMar DeRozan struggled and snapped his 30-game scoring streak by contributing only 18 points. Zach LaVine tried to pick things up as he led the team with 22 points while Ayo Dosunmu started this game and tallied 18 points. The Bulls are still missing the services of Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso making their guard rotation very thin at the moment with Coby White struggling to be consistent.

Atlanta Hawks Betting

The Atlanta Hawks are continuing to be one of the most disappointing teams entering this year as their defense dropped significantly to become the worst in the league. Trae Young has been trying to carry the team but his efforts are getting wasted as his support players are not delivering the goods. Most of the team’s core are underperforming and there is not much motivation felt in the locker room. There are rumors that the team will be dismantled by the off-season and retooling around Young once again. For now, it is not a surprise if the Hawks will not make the playoffs.
