Chicago Bulls vs Atlanta Hawks 5/1/2021 Betting Odds
Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls playoff hopes are very much dimmed as they trail the Washington Wizards by three games with their record at 26-37. It doesn’t help that the team they are chasing is on back-to-back wins while their performance so far has been dismal losing back-to-back. Their advantage right now against the Atlanta Hawks is that their opponents are on a tail end of a back-to-back. Life has been tough for the Bulls losing Zach LaVine in a critical stretch. This team should be looking forward to keeping their two stars, LaVine and Nikola Vucevic, healthy and build a good team around them.
Players to watch: Z. LaVine SG 53 GP 53 GS 35.2 MIN 27.5 PTS 0.6 OR 4.5 DR 5.1 REB 5.1 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 3.6 TO 2.3 PF 1.4 AST/TO 21.47 PER
N. Vucevic C * 20 GP 22 GS 32.5 MIN 22.3 PTS 2.1 OR 8.8 DR 10.9 REB 3.6 AST 1 STL 0.8 BLK 1.7 TO 2.2 PF 2.2 AST/TO 22.98 PER

Atlanta Hawks Betting
The Atlanta Hawks are on a tough stretch as they once owned the top four seed in the NBA Eastern Conference and now they are tied with the Boston Celtics with the sixth place. This team needs to step it up and make the most of their remaining games to keep or improve their playoff position. It helps that Trae Young and Cling Capela are back in the roster and expect this team to try and mount an early lead against the Bulls so they can also give rest to their stars for the long haul. Judging from their performance against the Sixers, the Hawks need to find their rhythm to become playoff ready.
Players to Watch: T. Young PG 55 GP 55 GS 34.1 MIN 25.4 PTS 0.6 OR 3.2 DR 3.9 REB 9.5 AST 0.9 STL 0.2 BLK 4.2 TO 1.8 PF 2.2 AST/TO 22.49 PER
