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.
