The Line: Chicago Bulls +2 -- Over/Under: 188 See the Latest Odds
The Golden State Warriors head to Chicago on Wednesday to face off against the Bulls.
The Chicago Bulls are currently four games above the .500 mark on the season as the Bulls are sitting at 30-26 this season. Chicago is in prime position to make the playoffs in the East this season, as the East is horrible, and really anything close to .500 should get you in. Chicago is coming off a solid win on the road against the Hawks on Tuesday night, defeating Atlanta 107-103. The Bulls had seven different players reach double digit points on the night against the Hawks, with Dunleavy leading the way with 22.

The Golden State Warriors are 35-22 this season, but with the West being a much tougher conference this season, the Warriors are only in sixth place. Golden State is currently in the top ten in both scoring offense and scoring defense this season, putting up an average of 103.3, while allowing just 98.6. The Warriors got a win in their last outing, defeating the Pistons 104-96 on Monday night. That was the first game in a tough six game road stretch for Golden State.
The Golden State Warriors are 5-0-1 against the spread in their last six games overall, and the Warriors are 3-0-1 against the spread in their last four games when playing on one day of rest. Golden State is also 5-1-1 against the spread in their last seven games when playing a team with a winning record.
The Chicago Bulls are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games when playing on no rest, and the Bulls are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall.
I like the under here. The Warriors definitely have the ability to light up the scoreboard, but with this one being in Chicago, I look for a more defensive game here. The Bulls defense is legit, and with both teams trying to secure a strong seeding for the playoffs, look for the defenses to play stingy here on Wednesday.
