New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls Betting Pick

The Pick: New York Knicks -5

Wednesday Night at 7:30PM EST at Madison Square Garden

Why bet the New York Knicks?

✅ The New York Knicks come into this game having won nine of their last 10 games, having just had their nine-game win streak snapped by the Phoenix Suns. The Chicago Bulls, meanwhile, have been a middling 4-6 in their last 10 games and have struggled to find their footing with Zach LaVine out due to health and safety protocols. Expect the Knicks' hot streak to continue.

✅ In addition to their recent run of form, the Knicks have a serious edge in terms of their sense of urgency here. While the Chicago Bulls wait for LaVine to get healthy, the Knicks are playing their final home game before a six-game road trip. On that road trip, the Knicks will face the Nuggets, Suns, Lakers and Clippers, four of the top-five teams in the Western Conference. They will enter Wednesday knowing they need a win to avoid slipping in the standings once they hit the road.

✅ The New York Knicks are the number one team in the NBA against the spread this season, covering at 63.9% during the 2020-2021 campaign. They will improve on that number against the Bulls here.

Bulls vs Knicks Against the Spread Predictions

Bulls vs Knicks against the spread predictions refer to whether the New York Knicks or Chicago Bulls win or lose by the necessary points to cover the spread. For a hypothetical line, we will use the Bulls -4.

This means a wager on the Bulls would require them to win by more than fourmpoints to be considered a winner. A wager on the Knicks, at +4, would require them to either win the game outright or to lose by fewer than five points to be considered a winner.

Chicago Bulls vs Knicks Over / Under Betting

Chicago Bulls vs Knicks Over/Under betting is a way of wagering on the contest without being required to pick the winner of the game. Instead, these wagers are against a set total of combined points in the game.

For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 218 points. Over/Under wagers on this New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls contest would be betting over or under 218 combined points for the two teams.

There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency. Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor.

New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls Moneyline Predictions

Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play.

Instead of laying or taking the points on the spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, for instance the New York Knicks vs Chicago Bulls Money Line predictions, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering.

For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Bulls-4 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Bulls can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The New York Knicks can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds.

In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -170 on the Bulls and expect to get about +140 on the New York Knicks.

With the Bulls having a slight edge on the all time series the history points to the Bulls side, but not to a degree in which history can be the sole determining factor on a bet, history is just one piece of the puzzle. The more recent matchups have been split, and we need to look at other factors to determine the best play in these matchups.

There are hours of research required for successful NBA predictions, and we are here to provide that for you, with a conclusion summed up and bottom lined. Check above for a synopsis and who to play in this Knicks vs Bulls matchup.

Knicks vs Bulls Odds

The NBA carries the most fluid odds of all the major sports in the United States. We often see a slowmrelease of odds and against the spread, over/under and money line odds all fluctuate, often rapidly rapidly throughout a given day leading up to tipoff. The Knicks vs Bulls odds won’t draw a massive betting market from the general public, so just a handful of large wagers could move the lines significantly in one direction or the other.
