The Cleveland Cavaliers and Chicago Bulls will open their 2015-16 seasons against each other on Tuesday night when the two teams meet at the United Center.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Bulls opened as a 1.5-point home favorite but the line has jumped to Chicago -3. As for the total, it opened at 197 and that's where the number currently sits.
The Cavs are just 2-5 against the spread in their last seven games in Chicago and 2-6 against the number in their last eight games overall versus the Bulls. That said, the underdog is 6-2 at the betting window in the last eight meetings between these two teams so perhaps Cleveland will thrive in an underdog role tonight.
For what it's worth, the under is 4-1 in the Bulls' last five home games dating back to last season and 5-1-1 in the Cavs' last seven road games, again, dating back to last year.
