Point Spread Pick:
The Bulls have won 6 of 7 since their road loss vs. the Warriors on February 6th losing only to the Heat. Chicago was coming off of a 101-92 upset victory over Phoenix as a 7.5 point dog and may have been a little too full of themselves last time these two met. The Bulls hasn’t been dominating at home, but are 16-10 straight up and should put out a much stronger effort this go around.
Take the Chicago Bulls +3.
