The Chicago Bulls are simply unbackable at the moment, especially on the road where they're losing by an average of 9.7 points. The Brooklyn Nets are on the end of a back to back, but they've been a consistent team and have been nothing but money at home as of late. It's tough to back teams that are in complete tank mode unless the line is crazy steep. I'll take the Nets in a comfortable home victory.
