New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks

The Knicks have surprisingly dominated the Bulls in their last three matchups, sweeping their rivals in those games and limiting them to an average of 96 points. The injury to defensive specialist Otto Porter Jr. would certainly not help Chicago, who got torched by Bobby Portis’ 28 points the last time around.

Moneyline: Motivated by the front-office challenge, the Knicks will register their third win of the season at the expense of the NBA Moneyline favorites Bulls.

ATS: Despite their horrible 2-8 slate, the Knicks are actually solid 5-5 against the spread. A win vs. the Bulls will put them above .500 in that area, at least.

TOTALs: This game will go under the NBA over/under totals of 216 points. The Bulls and Knicks went over for a combined six out of 20 games.

Score Prediction: 103-96 Knicks
