The Chicago Bulls have been decent their last seven games, beating four sub. 500 teams and falling to three elite Eastern Conference opponents.

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
