Chicago Bulls vs. Golden State Warriors Betting Lines

Time: 10:30 PM EST Thursday February 6, 2014, TNT

Location: Oracle Arena, Oakland, California

The Golden State Warriors host the Chicago Bulls in a non-conference match up.

In their last games: The Bulls beat the Phoenix Suns 101-92 and the Warriors lost to the Charlotte Hornets.

In their win over the Suns the Bulls did not have a great shooting game, but they played great defense holding Phoenix to 38.8% shooting and they forced 21 turnovers.

In their loss to the Bobcats the Warriors failed to show up on offense shooting a terrible FG% of 31.2%. Golden State’s great G duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thomson combined to shoot 13/31 from the floor.

This is the first match up between these 2 teams this season and the last time they met last season at Golden State the Warriors beat the Bulls 113-95.


Here are some additional handicapping angles to ponder:

The Golden State offense will be facing a Chicago defense that ranks 2nd in the league only giving up an average of 92.8 ppg.

After winning 13 of 15 games the Warriors have lost 4 of their last 6 and have dropped to the 7th spot in the Western Conference.

The Warriors are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 home games against the Bulls.

In the last 8 games between these 2 teams the total has gone Under 6 times.

The Warriors have lost 5 of their last 7 home games.

Point Spread Pick:

The Jekyll and Hyde Warriors are coming off of an embarrassing 16 point home loss to the Bobcats on Tuesday night which we feel won’t bode well for the Bulls tonight. Golden State’s timing may have been off with the extended time rest preceding the Charlotte game and should be able to shoot much better than Tuesday’s 31.2% shooting from the field tonight. We would have liked to have seen a 6 on the board for this game, so we’ll make this only an opinion.
