Bet on Cavaliers vs. Bulls

The Cavaliers have had their struggles against the Bulls, but a lot of those meetings were against much more talented Chicago teams. This version of the Bulls is inexperienced and struggling badly, which Cleveland will take advantage of tonight. Look for yet another big night from both LeBron and Love, while the Cavs bench is playing their best basketball of the season. Take Ceveland in a rout.
