Cavaliers host Bulls tonight

NBA Odds & Betting Trends 2/18/16 – Chicago Bulls vs. Cleveland Cavaliers

The NBA is back from the All-Star Break tonight and features two of the best in the East as the Cleveland Cavaliers host the Chicago Bulls at 8PM ET on TNT.

According to oddsmakers at RealBets, the Cavaliers are heavily favored in this game, as they are getting odds of -12 points against the Bulls. The over/under total for the game has been set at 207 points.

The Cavaliers come into the second half of the season with the top record in the East at 38-14 while the Bulls are on a bit of a down stretch at 27-25. The Bulls lost and failed to cover in six of their last seven games before heading into the break, with seven of their last eight coming on the road. Cleveland has won its last three and eight of its last 10, going 5-3-1 ATS in its last nine games.

Part of Chicago’s problems come with the loss of Jimmy Butler to a knee injury. He is out until early March which has sparked the Bulls to go 1-4 since he went down. Kevin Love is expected to play for Cleveland after suffering a shoulder injury, but getting the break to recover. Chicago has actually won both meetings with Cleveland this season and the Bulls are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 trips to Cleveland. The under has been common with these two as they have hit the under in 4 of their last 5 meetings.
