The Hawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Wednesday games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Bulls are 8-24 ATS in their last 32 vs. NBA Southeast and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Hawks are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Chicago and 3-7 ATS in the last 10 meetings overall.
I continue to say that I don't like this Hawks team, as they're so inconsistent, especially on the road. The Bulls are banged up but do have some depth and a fighting style of play that allows next man up. I see Gasol, Brooks and others having a big game, giving the Bulls a much needed win heading into the AS break.
