Point Spread Pick:
The Bulls have been red hot as of late winning 9 of their last 10 with their only loss coming on the road to the Miami Heat. Chicago backers have cashed in at the windows with Bulls going 10-2 against the spread in their last 12 games. The Bulls have crushed Brooklyn in both meeting this season by 15+ points so its hard for us to believe that the Nets will be able to reverse the trend in their first game at home off a 7 game road trip. We’ll take the hot team plus the points in a game that we feel the Bulls should win outright. Take the Chicago Bulls +3.5.
