The Charlotte Hornets invade the United Center to do battle with the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday night. Here’s a Hornets vs Bulls prediction. 

Charlotte Hornets 

The Charlotte Hornets have been in a slump as they’ve lost seven of their last 10 games overall and they will be looking to bounce back after getting beaten by the Timberwolves in a 123-117 loss on Saturday. Terry Rozier led the team with 23 points and seven assists, Miles Bridges added 22 points, PJ Washington tallied 18 points, seven rebounds and five assists off the bench while Gordon Hayward chipped in with 17 points on seven of 11 shooting. As a team, the Hornets shot 48 percent from the field and 12 of 25 from the 3-point line as they clawed their way back from an early 12-point deficit to lead midway through the fourth quarter, only to get outscored by 21-11 in the final 4:44 to allow the Timberwolves off the hook in a disappointing finish. 

Charlotte Hornets Team Facts

  • The Hornets have lost each of their last eight games at United Center following a loss.
  • The Hornets have failed to cover the spread in each of their last eight games at United Center following a loss.
  • Six of the Hornets’ last seven road games against Central Division opponents have gone UNDER the total points line.

Chicago Bulls

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in a rut as they’ve lost eight of their last 11 games overall, but they will be aiming for a third straight win in this one after sneaking past the Pelicans in a 124-118 win on Saturday. Coby White led the team with 31 points, nine rebounds and six assists, DeMar DeRozan added 24 points with 10 assists while Torrey Craig and Ayo Dosunmu scored 15 points each. As a team, the Bulls shot 54 percent from the field and 17 of 40 from the 3-point line as they looked to be in trouble when they trailed at halftime, but they exploded for 71 points in the second half to earn the solid victory at home where they are now 6-6 on the season. 

Chicago Bulls Team Facts

  • The home team has won each of the Bulls’ last six games.
  • The home team has covered the spread in each of the Bulls’ last six games.
  • Each of the Bulls’ last five games have gone OVER the total points line.

Hornets vs Bulls prediction

The Bulls are still shorthanded with Zach LaVine out and Torrey Craig listed as questionable, but the Bulls still open as favorites which isn’t a surprise given how poor the Hornets have been lately. To be fair, the Hornets were more than competitive against the Timberwolves in their last outing, but they’ve really been struggling since losing LaMelo Ball to injury. The Bulls are starting to look good with two wins in a row and I think they can make it a third straight win here.
