Chicago Bulls have a 1-3 record (1-3 against the spread) so far this season and are tied with two more teams in the 12th place of the East. They have back-to-back losses and in their last game they lost on the road against the Knicks with a 98-105 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Zach LaVine with 21.2 ppg, adding 4.5 boards and a team high 4.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Lauri Markkanen with 17.8 ppg and a team high 10.2 boards per game.
In their four meetings last season the Bulls led the Cavs 3-1 wins, winning both road games by an average of 18 points. Cavaliers are 1-0 at home, while the Bulls are 1-2 on the road. Bulls are better offensively, scoring 104.2 ppg to Cavs’ 102.3, while Cavaliers are better defensively, allowing 107.3 ppg to Bulls’ 110.2. Cavaliers have better percentages both in field goals (44% to 40.5%) and in 3-pointers (30.8% to 27.5%). They are also better both in boards grabbed (48.7 to 44.2) and in dimes made (20.7 to 20), while Bulls are better in turnovers committed (11.8 to 15). Bookmakers give the Bulls a -2 spread but don’t expect them to beat the odds and pick the hosts in this one.
