Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls are going to have to pull heaven and earth together in order to make the playoffs. First, the Washington Wizards need to lose their next two games and the bigger challenge is getting a win over the titans of the NBA Eastern Conference Brooklyn Nets and Milwaukee Bucks. It is only now that Zach LaVine and Nikola Vucevic are getting used to each other. They are giving the Bulls fans a glimpse of the future as they won four of their last five games with their two all-stars working together. It is just going to be a tough battle and they need other players to keep up in order to get a good chance against the Nets.

Players to watch: Z. LaVine SG 58 GP 58 GS 35.1 MIN 27.4 PTS 0.6 OR 4.4 DR 5 REB 4.9 AST 0.8 STL 0.5 BLK 3.5 TO 2.4 PF 1.4 AST/TO 21.77 PER

Brooklyn Nets Betting

The Brooklyn Nets are currently second in the NBA Eastern Conference standings and they need to win both games to seal the position against the chasing Milwaukee Bucks. They don’t hold the tiebreaker and they will wish that the Bucks lose at least one of the two games left on their calendar. This team is looking good as they hold a good advantage over the Chicago Bulls but they have to be wary of a lingering upset. Next in their schedule are the lottery-bound Cleveland Cavaliers who are better off losing than winning their last matches to increase their draft odds.

Players to Watch: K. Durant PF 33 GP 30 GS 33.3 MIN 27.5 PTS 0.4 OR 6.6 DR 7 REB 5.3 AST 0.8 STL 1.4 BLK 3.4 TO 2 PF 1.6 AST/TO 26.8 PER

J. Harden SG 35 GP 34 GS 37 MIN 25.1 PTS 0.9 OR 7.8 DR 8.6 REB 11 AST 1.3 STL 0.7 BLK 4.1 TO 2.4 PF 2.7 AST/TO 25.18 PER.
