Chicago Bulls vs Indiana Pacers Betting Picks
The Bulls are 6-4 in their last 10 games, while the Pacers are 7-3. Online bookmakers are making a safe bet on the Pacers since they have been the better team all season long. Also, the Pacers have defeated the Bulls in their two earlier matchups this season.
Moneyline: Pick the Pacers at -400. Again, it’s a safe bet. The Bulls are gaining momentum entering the halfway point of the season, but the Pacers have enough firepower to waylay their Central Division rivals.
ATS: Bet on the Bulls to cover the 8-point spread. I feel the Bulls will give the Pacers a good fight. Zach Lavine is off to another big night, and that will give Chicago a fighting chance in this game.
TOTALs: Back the OVER at 215 points. The Pacers scored 129 points in back-to-back games. The Bulls aren’t good defensive team either.
Score Prediction: 120 – 115 Pacers
