The Chicago Bulls are currently leading the Central division, with a record of 10-6 on the season. Everyone seems to watch Bulls games closely, as we are just waiting for Rose to leave the game once again with another injury. Chicago, like the Nets is a balanced team, playing respectable on both ends of the court. The Bulls are scoring an average of 101 points per game, while allowing just over 99 points per outing. Chicago is 3-3 in their last six games heading into this meeting with the Nets, with their last outing resulting in a win on the road against Boston on Friday.
I have to take the Nets here. Chicago may be the better team right now, but the Nets are solid as well, and getting a three point bucket at home against the Bulls looks like the side to be on. Rose is set to be on the court for Chicago, which honestly I think has inflated this line a bit as I have this one right around pick’em.
