Why bet the Chicago Bulls?

Predictive nature of the Chicago Bulls: In 2021, the Bulls have been quite consistent in beating who they are supposed to beat and losing to who they are suppised to lose to. They are 6-2 in games against teams who are currently outside the playoffs, while they are just 2-9 agaisnt teams who would make the playoffs if the season ended today.

Chicago Bulls schedule softening: After playing 11 of their first 18 games agasint the stronger Western Conference and 11 of their first 18 games agaisnt current playoff teams, the schedule hits a soft spot this week. This matchup with the New York Knicks is the second of four straight games against non playoff Eastern Conference teams. Of course the Bulls won this same home matchup with the Knicks by a score of 110-102. The Bulls were laying four points in that game and we get an even more favorable line the second time around.

New York Knicks on a skid: After a strong 5-3 start to the season, the New York Knicks have cooled off considerably. The Knicks are 4-10 in their last 14 games overall. They have lost five of their last six overall and have lost four straight games on the road.

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.
