The Chicago Bulls travel to Golden State to take on the Warriors Thursday night and Jeff Alexander says that the Warriors will cover the spread. Oddmakers from online sportsbook Bodog opened the betting at Golden State –13, but the line has since dropped to Golden State –12.5.

Alexander writes: The Bulls are banged up. Gordon , Deng, and Hinrich all missed Wednesday's game against Portland. With other guys stepping in and playing more minutes than normal, they will really be feeling the effects tonight when they visit the run and gun Warriors. Golden State is 8-2 SU and 7-2-1 ATS in its last 10 at home versus Chicago. This is the Bulls 4th game in 6 days on the road. Judging by this line, oddsmakers are confident in a blowout and we are too. Lay the points.

Public betting information currently shows that of the 2,168 wagers placed on tonight’s game, 54% of bettors like the Bulls +12.5. Accuscore disagrees with the public, however, and has the Warriors as a 79% favorite.

Chicago’s top three scorers are Ben Gorden (23.9 points per game, 3.5 assists and 3.5 rebounds), Andres Naciani (16.3 points per game, 2.1 assists and 5.7 rebounds) and Joe Smith (13.5 points per game, 1.4 assists and 6.6 rebounds). Golden State’s top three scorers are Stephen Jackson (20.4 points per game, 4.9 assists and 4.6 rebounds), Baron Davis (20.4 points per game, 9.1 assists and 5.2 rebounds) and Monta Ellis (18.3 points per game, 4.7 assists and 4.5 rebounds).

 

Some trends to consider for tonight’s game:

- GOLDEN STATE is 4-1 against the spread versus CHICAGO over the last 3 seasons

- GOLDEN STATE is 3-2 straight up against CHICAGO over the last 3 seasons

- 3 of 5 games in this series have gone UNDER THE TOTAL over the last 3 seasons
