Cleveland Cavaliers vs Chicago Bulls 3/10/2020 – The Chicago Bulls host the Cleveland Cavaliers in a battle of two teams outside the NBA playoff picture. The Cavaliers are on a two-game winning streak and basketball lines see them bagging this one. However, the undermanned Bulls also want to check their skid. Chicago leads the all-time regular season series and won two of their three meetings this year. That could serve as extra motivation for the Cavs to go for a win.

Cleveland Cavaliers Betting

The rejuvenated Cleveland Cavaliers are back on track, winning their last two games. Though they are still at the tail-end of the Eastern Conference, it is all about trying to adjust and prepare for next season. Collin Sexton will lead the way anew with Kevin Love and Andre Drummond likewise in focus. Defense could use some improvement, seeing how the Cavs are allowing opponents 114.9 points per game.

Players to watch: C. Sexton PG 64 GP 64 GS 32.9 MIN 20.7 PTS 1 OR 2.2 DR 3.1 REB 2.9 AST 1 STL 0.1 BLK 2.4 TO 2.2 PF 1.2 AST/TO 16.32 PER

Chicago Bulls Betting

Despite being undermanned, the Bulls are still finding ways to stay competitive. They lost a close one against the Brooklyn Nets and hope to bounce back against the Cavs. Leading the way will be Lauri Markannen and Coby White with Zach LaVine still questionable to return. Defense could be the key to a Bulls win, a formula head coach Jim Boylen has relied on heavily this season. The Bulls are limiting opponents to 110 points per game.

Players to Watch: Z. LaVine PG 60 GP 60 GS 34.8 MIN 25.5 PTS 0.7 OR 4.1 DR 4.8 REB 4.2 AST 1.5 STL 0.5 BLK 3.4 TO 2.2 PF 1.2 AST/TO 19.55 PER
