Warriors at Bulls: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks
Warriors 119, Bulls 115
Money line (ML)
The Warriors (-165) are moderate favorites on the road against the Bulls (+140) in a battle of winless clubs in Chitown. Neither of these teams instills a lot of confidence.
Against the spread (ATS)
The WARRIORS -3.5 (-115) have gotten pounded in their first two games, losing 125-99 in the opener in Brooklyn, and 138-99 in Milwaukee on Christmas Day. The Bulls +3.5 (-105) haven’t been much better, falling 124-104 at home to Atlanta in their opener Dec. 23, and they were dumped 125-106 on Saturday in the Windy City.
Golden State has cashed in the past four meetings against Chicago, and they’re 4-1 ATS in the past five on the road against teams with a home winning percentage under .400. The Bulls just might be the elixir to cure the ills of the struggling Dubs.
OVER 226.5 ( -115) is worth a small-unit play, as neither of these teams has shown much ability on defense. While the Under is 11-5 in the past 16 meetings in Chicago, a good chunk of those games came when Golden State was a championship-caliber team.
These days they’re a turnstile at the defensive end, and you can expect both of these teams to score plenty of points in their first real opportunity to win a game this season.
