Bulls vs. Knicks Pick

NBA Predictions: Will Knicks secure win over struggling Bulls? 1/10/18

Are the Chicago Bulls going to lose a third straight game tonight when they face the host New York Knicks at 7:30PM ET?

Who Oddsmakers Like: New York. According to oddsmakers at Bovada.lv, the Knicks are a 4.5-point favorite on the spread line. The total is set at 209 points. New York opened as a 4-point fave, while the total has also gone up slightly from 208 points when it opened.

Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: New York. As of Wednesday afternoon, 66 percent of public bets have come in on the Knicks.

Injury Report: Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic missed the last game with a virus and is questionable tonight. Zach LeVine will miss his last game with a torn ACL tonight and is slated to make his Chicago debut Saturday versus the Pistons. Cameron Payne is recovering from foot surgery and could return in mid-January. For the Knicks, Michael Beasley missed the last game with a sprained ankle and is questionable tonight. Tim Hardaway Jr. is out with a stress reaction in his leg and is out at least another week.

Who the Trends Like: Chicago is 0-4 ATS in its last four meetings in New York and 2-5 ATS in the last seven meetings overall. The under is 3-1-1 in the last five meetings in New York.

Who We Like: I don't love betting on the Knicks as favorites, but this is a good spot for them. Chicago hasn't been as good with Mirotic out this season and if he misses this game, it will only make things tougher. The Bulls have lost five of their last six games and lost its last road game by 41 points at Indiana. New York has looked a bit rejuvenated in a close loss at Miami and a victory at Dallas. I expect the Knicks to continue their improved play tonight behind a big night from Kristaps Porzingis.
