The Chicago Bulls have been decent their last seven games, beating four sub. 500 teams and falling to three elite Eastern Conference opponents. Zach Lavine has led the team in scoring over the last nine games and will be the marked man against the Cavaliers after dropping 42 points on them in a 118-116 win last weekend.
Players to Watch: Zach Lavine (25.0 PPG, 4.7 RPG and 3.8 APG)

The Cavs’ free-fall continues with yet another disappointing loss to the Washington Wizards, 124-112, on Thursday. Collin Sexton recorded a team-high 29 points and Larry Nance Jr. grabbed 12 boards. However, Cleveland allowed Washington to shoot 55.3 percent on the floor, while Bradley Beal exploded for 36 points on 15-for-22 shooting.

Chicago Bulls vs Cleveland Cavaliers Betting Picks
The Bulls are 4-6 in their last 10, while the Cavaliers are worse at 2-8. Both teams are virtually out of the Eastern Conference playoffs, so expect these teams to field several lineups featuring their young players. However, for bettors, this could be a make-or-break situation for their NBA parlay bets since any team can go out with a win.
Moneyline: Bet on the Bulls at -105. I am riding on the hot hand of Zach Lavine. Watch out for the budding star to make his presence felt against the Cavaliers and lead his team to another win.
ATS: Cash in on the Bulls to cover the 1-point spread. By winning as dogs, the Bulls will claim their third ATS win in four games.
TOTALs: Pick the OVER at 217 points. Their last head-to-head game saw these teams combining for 232 points. The Bulls and Cavs aren’t known for their defense, so I expect the total score to go beyond 220 points.
Score Prediction: 120 – 110 Bulls
