Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls are now on a four-game winning streak and they are creeping the Brooklyn Nets by half a game for the best record in the NBA Eastern Conference. This team managed to pull off victories over the Charlotte Hornets, New York Knicks, Brooklyn Nets and the most recent were the Denver Nuggets. The Bulls are going to face a huge challenge as the teamโ€™s leading scorer DeMar DeRozan will be sidelined due to COVID-19. There is much on the shoulders of Nikola Vucevic and Zack LaVine for this matchup but they need players like Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso to step it up as well.

Players to watch: D. DeRozan SF 24 GP 24 GS 35.3 MIN 26.4 PTS 0.6 OR 4.7 DR 5.3 REB 4.1 AST 0.9 STL 0.4 BLK 2 TO 2.3 PF 2 AST/TO 23.59 PER

Z. LaVine SG 25 GP 25 GS 35 MIN 25.9 PTS 0.4 OR 4.9 DR 5.3 REB 4 AST 0.5 STL 0.4 BLK 2.6 TO 1.5 PF 1.6 AST/TO 21.85 PER

N. Vucevic C 18 GP 18 GS 33.3 MIN 15.3 PTS 1.7 OR 8.9 DR 10.6 REB 3.8 AST 1 STL 1 BLK 1.6 TO 2.3 PF 2.4 AST/TO 16.32 PER.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The Cleveland Cavaliers have lost back-to-back games and they are heading to this matchup with a 13-12 record. The Cavs are currently tied with the Atlanta Hawks and Cleveland Cavaliers. This team hopes to avoid getting into a losing streak after being beaten by the Utah Jazz and the Milwaukee Bucks. Darius Garland has been stepping up to lead the team in scoring and assists while Jarrett Allen is a solid player in the paint averaging a double-double in points and rebounds. Rookie Evan Mobley is also showing star potential and has been an x-factor who provides the team with decent scoring and rebounding.

Players to Watch: D. Garland PG 23 GP 23 GS 34.6 MIN 19.3 PTS 0.5 OR 2.4 DR 2.9 REB 7.3 AST 1.2 STL 0.1 BLK 4 TO 1.8 PF 1.8 AST/TO 16.96 PER
