There is one NBA pick tonight.
Chicago Bulls +6 spread against Orlando Magic for 3% of the bankroll.
After getting completely blown off the court in their last two games, we believe this is an ideal situation to 'buy-low' on the struggling Chicago Bulls. The Bulls are still trying to adjust not only their new coaching staff, but also to their rotations, however, we don't believe they are as poor of a team as they have showed as of late. They have recently gotten their best player back in Lauri Markkanen and are working on bringing back both Bobby Portis and Kris Dunn back into the mix. This is a team that is starting to get healthy and we wouldn't be surprised to see them start trending upward very soon.
The Orlando Magic also haven't been world-beaters by any stretch of the imagination, having lost convincingly in their most recent matchups as well. Both of these teams are fairly even in talent; however, we believe the recent perception of the Bulls have played a huge role in this spread. Orlando also won't have the advantage of homecourt as this game is being played in Mexico City, so we can't see the justification in them being listed as rather hefty favorites other than based on Chicago's recent results.
We expect the Bulls to be much more competitive in this contest and wouldn't be surprised if this game went to the wire and they won outright. We believe there is quite a bit of value in this spread, on a neutral court and is worth backing Chicago given the situation.
