LINE MOVEMENT

The Hornets opened as 5.5-point road favorites and that’s where the point spread currently sits at the majority of online sportsbooks. The total, meanwhile, climbed slightly to 215.5 after hitting the board at 215.

PUBLIC BETTING

As of this writing, 69% of the betting tickets wagered at online sportsbooks are on the Hornets to cover the point spread tonight. Meanwhile, 53% of the betting tickets are on the under.

KEY INJURY TO WATCH

There are several starters out for the year on both sides. Cody Zeller (knee) is done for the Hornets while Kris Dunn (toe) and Zach LaVine (knee) are out for the season in Chicago. The Hornets might not have Nicolas Batum (ankle) either. He’s questionable.

BETTING STRATEGY

The over has been an excellent play in this series, covering in all five of the last five meetings overall and going 3-0-1 in the last four meetings in Chicago. The over is also 5-0 in the Hornets’ last five games when facing an opponent with a losing record, is 9-3-1 in their last 13 games versus Central opponents, and cashing in 19 of their last 26 games versus a team with a winning percentage below .400. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Bulls’ last four games versus a team with a losing record, is 4-0 in their last four home games when facing an opponent with a losing road record, and is 3-0-1 in their last four home games. Look for Kemba Walker and Co. to put on an offensive show tonight.
