NBA FREE PICK: Take Atlanta. According to latest NBA trends, the Bulls are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following a ATS win, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 3-8 ATS in their last 11 after scoring 100 points or more in their previous game and are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games following a S.U. win. Atlanta is 5-1-1 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games, 20-6-1 ATS in their last 27 games playing on 0 days rest.

The Hawks did lay an egg on Friday, losing to Philadelphia on the road by 19. But the Bulls had to use a lot of energy to beat the Knicks by four in a very emotional game, which saw three Knicks get ejected including Carmelo Anthony. Chicago used starting center Joakim Noah for 41 minutes and starting guard Marco Belinelli for 45 minutes. Atlanta used Al Horford for 36 minutes, but no other Atlanta regular played more than 28 minutes. The Hawks have more depth and should be fresher for this game.
