Bulls vs Knicks prediction

The Bulls have been a hit or miss hard to trust team all season, and I’m going to assume they’re going to sit their starters with a play-in game against the Hawks already locked in. The Knicks could end up with the second seed in the east, so there’s motivation, and they already beat the Bulls by 11 points on the road a few days ago. The Knicks are a top-7 cover team in the NBA with a cover percentage of 55.1 percent. Thick line, but we’re assuming the Bulls aren’t going to play their starters. Give me the Knicks in a comfortable home victory as they fight for the second seed in the east.
