New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls 2/1/2021 Betting Odds
New York Knicks Betting
The New York Knicks had a good start but they are regressing in every game that they play. After a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers, they had a very dismal performance against the Los Angeles Clippers and lost by 14 points, 114-129. Julius Randle had his usual numbers of 27 points, 12 rebounds and five assists while RJ Barret chipped in with 23 markers. Immanuel Quickley continues to bolster the team’s bench with 25 points. The Knicks were good offensively but their defense has allowed the Clippers to run over them and it is an unlikely trait of a team coached by Tom Thibodeau.
Players to watch: J. Randle PF 21 GP 21 GS 36.5 MIN 22.4 PTS 1.5 OR 9.7 DR 11.1 REB 6 AST 0.7 STL 0.2 BLK 3.3 TO 3.4 PF 1.8 AST/TO 20.57 PER

Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls after winning three consecutive games are coming in this matchup against the New York Knicks on a three-game losing streak. They were on a tough path having the defending Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics and Portland Trail Blazers in those losses. Their most recent loss 1-point against the Blazers are very much commendable and has some good upsides. Zach LaVine had 26 points and seven rebounds but it is Lauri Markkanen fulfilling his potential as the next Dirk Nowitzki with 31 points, six rebounds and six three-pointers. Coby White also had a good game with 20 points and six assists.
Players to Watch: Z. LaVine SG 18 GP 18 GS 35.5 MIN 26.9 PTS 0.6 OR 4.8 DR 5.3 REB 5.2 AST 1.3 STL 0.6 BLK 4.4 TO 2.7 PF 1.2 AST/TO 21.4 PER
