Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls: BETTING TIPS, PREDICTION & BETTING ODDS

For the 2nd consecutive season the Atlanta Hawks find themselves in the play-in tournament, but can they get in just like they did last year? The path is a lot tougher this time around, they’ll have to win both of their play-in games just to face the Boston Celtics in the first round and likely get eliminated. This team just isn’t in the best of shapes right now, they’ve lost 6 games in a row despite getting their star player Trae Young back from injury. The last game of the season was particularly embarrassing as they allowed Indiana to score 157 points on them. A lot of people were left upset due to the lack of effort on defense by the Hawks, let’s see if they can turn things around vs Chicago. They did beat the Bulls in the last regular season meeting, so maybe they can base their optimism on that game?

Chicago battled on the final day vs the Knicks, only to fall in overtime by a single point. On paper they are the better team here, over the last 20 games when they’re the favorite they are 13-7 SU. They’ve also covered the spread in 10 of 14 games vs Southeast Division teams, this is a favorable match-up for DeMar DeRozan’s team. The 34 year old is in the running for clutch player of the year, whenever you have that type of player on your roster in a high stakes game it gives you a ton of confidence. Chicago’s only flaw this year is their lack of three-point shooting. Only 3 teams in the NBA (Portland, Detroit and Orlando) average less threes made per game, this could become an issue against a Hawks team that likes to score a lot.

I still like Chicago despite all their flaws here. They’re the healthier team and players like Caruso should be able to contain the likes of Trae Young and Dejounte Murray from going off here. Take the home team to cover.

Atlanta Hawks vs Chicago Bulls Total Points: Under 221.5

Under 221.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

Keeping the tempo of the game under control is a must here for the Bulls as they simply don’t have the offensive firepower to go toe to toe with the Hawks on offense. Chicago has done a solid job at slowing things down in their last 8 games, averaging just 97.2 possessions per game which ranks them 24th in the NBA. We have a relatively high projected total of 221.5 points, for a play-in tournament game that does sound like an ambitious number. Both play-in games on Tuesday went under the total, I’m expecting more of the same on Wednesday as teams actually put in the effort on defense. Recent trends are also in favor of the under here, that bet has cashed in 4 of the last 5 meetings at the United Center. Atlanta has gone a bit cold from three-point land lately, connecting on just 13 or less threes in 6 of their last 7 games. With Young still finding his rhythm since coming back from injury, it has been a struggle scoring the basketball. Apart from their blowout loss to Indiana, their last 3 of 4 games have been relatively low scoring. For the Bulls the under has cashed in 4 of 5 home games, with that also being the case in 4 of the last 6 head-to-head I think it’s worth sticking to the trends and backing the under in this game as well.
