Nets at Bulls picks and predictions:


Nets 112, Bulls 109


The Bulls are expected to secure a victory at home, but I’ll take the NETS (+115) on the road. Chicago has struggled recently, and the roster has failed to perform well together, while Brooklyn still has a well-rounded roster sans Irving and Durant.

Against the spread

NETS +2.5 (-115) is the choice here despite Brooklyn’s moneyline likely having the better value at such a small spread. The Nets won by 11 just a couple of weeks ago against the Bulls despite Chicago having its usual trio of F DeMar DeRozan, G Zach LaVine and C Nikola Vucevic.

The Bulls are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games following an ATS loss, and they are 0-6 ATS in their last 6 games overall.


UNDER 222.5 (-110) is the lean in this matchup with the Nets playing at a slower pace since trading Irving and Durant. The Under is also 9-1 in the last 10 meetings between these teams.
