Chicago Bulls vs Cleveland Cavaliers: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

On the day when most teams are playing their last game before the all-star break, we have a Central Division rivalry taking place in Cleveland as the Cavs host the Bulls. This will be the 3rd meeting of the season between the two teams, neither of the first two were competitive with Cleveland winning them by 14 and 18 points respectively. What stood out in those wins were their performances on the defensive end as they held Chicago to just 95 and 91 points. A similar effort would be welcome here, as the team looks to bounce back from a surprising 123-121 home loss to the Philadelphia 76ers, which snapped a 9-game win streak. The Cavs went into that game as 8.5 point favorites, but still managed to lose to an Embiid-less 76ers team. Tonight they’re 9.5 point favorites against Chicago, and after covering the spread in 5 of the last 6 home games against them, optimism will be on a high before tonight’s game.

The Bulls have actually performed well lately, covering the spread in 8 of their last 12 games overall. Losing Zach LaVine for the season hasn’t had that much of a negative impact, Chicago is just 2 games back from having a .500 record as they find themselves in 9th place in the East. The resurgence of Coby White has been big for them, his 19.4 points and 5.3 assists per game this season have made him a building block for years to come. Joining LaVine on the sidelines could also be Alex Caruso who is questionable with a toe injury, his potential absence will be felt here. Chicago is on a 6-game losing streak in head-to-head meetings, while also failing to cover in all 6 of those games. The good news is their three-point shooting has been consistent, they’ve drained at least 12 threes in 4 straight.

Chicago Bulls Point Spread Prediction

Chicago Bulls +9.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds

Can we trust the Cavs to bounce back here following that loss to Philadelphia? I’m not so sure, the Bulls have been very competitive in their games lately and I don’t think they’ll lose by double-digits for the 3rd straight time vs Cleveland. I’ll take the road team plus the extra points.

Bulls vs Cavaliers Total Points Prediction: Over 223.5

Over 223.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds

In order for the Bulls to be competitive here, they really need to step it up offensively and score at least 110 points. Cleveland shut them down in the first two meetings, but things have improved dramatically since then as the Bulls have jumped from 21st in offensive rating to 11th over their last 10 games. As a result the over has cashed in 6 straight games for them, including 5 of their last 6 on the road. For the season they’re 16-11 on the O/U away from home, their last 3 games have all gone over 223.5 points which is tonight’s projected total. Cleveland has also seen at least 220 points scored in 3 of their last 5 games and after a sub-par effort against the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday I am not sure if they’ll be able to contain the Bulls here. Opponents are shooting 36.6% from three-point land in the last 3 games vs the Cavs, Chicago’s consistency from long range should come in handy here. I’m backing the points.
