Indiana Pacers vs Chicago Bulls prediction

The Indiana Pacers have been a wreck since the tournament and still don’t play defense, so excuse me if I’m not excited to lay points on the road. The Chicago Bulls have quietly been winning games these last couple of weeks, and they’ve covered 8 of their last 10 games. The Bulls beat the Pacers on the road as underdogs back in October. The Bulls could easily win this game outright given the way the Pacers are stinking up the joint lately. Give me the free bucket.
