There is one NBA pick tonight.


Chicago Bulls +14 spread against Denver Nuggets for 3% of the bankroll. 

The Chicago Bulls have been one of the worst teams in the league this season and they have been struggling mightily recently, having lost 8 straight games heading into this contest with the Nuggets. Despite their struggles, they have shown their ability to stay competitive in games and we feel that this is a spot where they can do just that.

The Denver Nuggets are coming off an absolutely terrible performance in their last contest where they gave up 51 points in the first quarter to the Golden State Warriors. While many may believe Denver will be in a bounce back spot tonight, we actually believe they will be dealing with a bit of a hangover in this one. Not only did they have a terrible showing against the premier team in the league, but they also surrendered first place in the conference. Now, they have to somehow motivate themselves to play the lowly Chicago Bulls? We simply don't see that happening.

Denver is unquestionably the better overall team in this matchup and could arguably win this game by 20 points, should they so choose, however, this seems like a flat-spot for the Nuggets and a matchup that they could be disinterested in. If that is the case and they come out a bit flat, the Bulls should be able to find a way to keep this within the generous number. Chicago has already played the Nuggets close this season, ultimately falling 107-108 at home, so they would like nothing more than to exact some revenge tonight and against a mentally wounded team, this may be their best opportunity. The value is with the road team in this one.
