Chicago Bulls vs Brooklyn Nets Betting Picks

The Bulls are surprisingly 5-5 in their last 10 games, while the Nets are just 4-6 in that number of games despite Kyrie Irving’s return. Sports betting punters must feel a little bit disappointed with the Bulls and the Nets since they are supposed to be good playoff teams this season.

Moneyline: Bet on the Bulls at +180. The Bulls are playing competitive basketball in the last four weeks. They have been going toe-to-toe against elite squads, including a very good Pacers team in their last game.

ATS: Pick the Bulls to cover the 5.5-point spread. I expect Zach Lavine to take over again and lead Chicago to a double-digit win.

TOTALs: Bet the OVER at 220.5 points. The OVER is 7-3 in Brooklyn’s last 10 games, while Chicago is scoring decently the last three games.

Score Prediction: 118 – 108 Bulls
