Will Bulls get back on track in Orlando?
The Chicago Bulls look to snap a losing skid tonight when they face the Orlando Magic on the road at 7PM ET.
According to oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Bulls are favored on the road tonight, as they are getting odds of -4 points against the Magic. The over/under total for the game is listed at 210 points.
Chicago is 36-35 overall, 12-22 on the road and 29-42 against the spread. Orlando is 29-43 overall, 18-16 at home and 39-32-1 against the spread. The home team has won both games this season, as Chicago had a 92-87 win on Nov. 1 and Orlando had a 102-89 victory on March 2. The Magic have covered in six straight meetings with the Bulls.
Chicago needs to start getting desperate, as the Bulls have lost back-to-back games to the Knicks and now find themselves 2 games out of the Eastern Conference playoffs. They face an Orlando team that has lost six straight, all by 5 points or more. The Bulls haven’t given much reason to be confident lately, but their situation has to inspire some motivation. With a small spread, the Bulls should be able to win and cover. If they can’t do it tonight, their playoff hopes are getting nearly non-existent.
