Knicks at Bulls: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Bulls 115, Knicks 110
Money line (ML)
The Bulls (-180) are a risky play at this price, as I’d rather just lay the points which is less costly. Chicago is coming off a 123-122 loss to the shorthanded Portland Trail Blazers Sunday. The Knicks are an equally risky proposition, as they are coming off a 14-point drubbing at home against the Los Angeles Clippers. AVOID.
Against the spread (ATS)
The BULLS -4.5 (-110) aren’t catching a lot of points here, but I’d rather go lightly on the spread than try and figure out a straight-up winner between two mediocre squads. Chicago lost by one at home Saturday, but at least it’s rested a bit and hasn’t had to travel.
New York just played on its home floor Sunday afternoon, and then traveled to Chitown. Advantage Bulls.
The OVER 217.5 (-110) is the best play on the board in this game. Chicago enters on a 5-2 Over run in the past seven at home, and 7-3 in its past 10 games overall. The Over has also connected in seven of the previous 10 meetings between these teams on the west side of Chicago.
