These are two banged up and struggling basketball teams right now, so you can make a case for either side. The difference here is the Bulls have lost eight of their last 10 games, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 6.8 points while allowing 51.2 percent shooting from the field. The Pacers are inconsistent, but they're in better shape than that. I'll lay the bucket with the Bulls at home.
