Chicago Bulls Betting

The Bulls are still finding the right formula heading into their fourth regular-season game of the season. There’s no better player to epitomize the Bulls’ volatile form in the opening week than Zach Lavine, who scored 16, 37, 11 in the first three games. After dropping a career-high 25 points in a win vs. Memphis, rookie guard Coby White recorded just 8 points on 3-of-14 shooting against the Raptors on Saturday.

Players to Watch Zach Lavine (21.3 PPG, 4.3 RPG, and 5.0 APG), Lauri Markkanen (17.7 PPG and 11.7 RPG), and Coby White (16.0 PPG and 5.0 RPG).

New York Knicks Betting

Even before the season started, the Knicks weren’t expected to be a force in the Eastern Conference, not with the young roster they have. However, three straight losses only show how green this Knicks squad is. Top-rookie swingman RJ Barrett has been the bright spot for New York in the losing streak. In the last game against the Celtics, the former Duke standout dropped a career-high 26 points on 9-of-20 FG shooting. Julius Randle emerges as the leader for the Knicks, chalking up double-doubles in the first three outings.

Players to Watch: RJ Barret (21.0 PPG and 5.0 RPG)), Marcos Morris (16.3 PPG and 4.3 RPG) and Julius Randle (16.3 PPG and 10.7 RPG_)

Chicago Bulls vs New York Knicks Betting Picks

Despite coming in as the slight online sports betting favorites, the Bulls are going to need more consistency from Lavine, White and Markkanen to get past the Knicks.

Moneyline: Contrary to the betting lines, the ESPN basketball power index put the Knicks’ winning percentage at 52.1 percent. The Knicks might be on a three-game losing streak but they are 6-4 against the Bulls in the last 10 head-to-head games.

ATS: Similar to the head-to-head stats, the Knicks have a 6-4 ATS against the Bulls in the last 10. In those games, New York is averaging 106.30 points on 45.63% FG shooting.

TOTALs: The O/U total for this game is set at 219 points. New York is averaging 110.00 points per game while Chicago is scoring 117.50 per contest in the opening week of the season. Defensively, neither team is that elite. Therefore, this game will easily exceed the O/U total.
