Chicago Bulls at Atlanta Hawks Overview
There must be something in the water as teams that were expected to be tanking have been winning as of late. First, it was the New York Knicks, now it is the Chicago Bulls. Chi-town comes into this contest going 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five matches. Most recently, we saw Chicago orchestrate a 109-107 win on the road in Memphis against the Grizzlies on Wednesday. The result was classed as an upset as the Bulls closed as a three-point underdog.
The Hawks also enter into this contest in winning form. Atlanta has posted a 2-1 SU record over their last three outings, most recently capped off by a win at home against the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday. Overtime was required to declare a winner, but Atlanta made the most of it defeating the T-Wolves 131-123 despite closing as a five-point underdog. The Hawks have successfully covered in their last four contests.
Reasons To Avoid Chicago
The stock is high on the Bulls here it is for this reason we have seen the points get scoffed up out of the gate because they may appear too easy here against the Hawks with the points to take back. Given the fact Chicago plays better basketball on the road than they do at home (10 of their 17 wins this season came outside of the Windy City), it can be inferred that the Bulls will be primed for another upset. However, the value has already been sucked out of backing the Bulls here as the line has moved downward by 1.5 points since the open of this market.
Reasons To Back Atlanta
Atlanta owns an enormous edge in offensive production as they curate 111.3 points per game (18th in the NBA) which is nearly ten points greater than Chicago’s 28th-ranked scoring offense which produces just 103.8 points per game. Moreover, Atlanta’s bench also proliferates 8.8 more points per game on average compared to Chicago’s bench operation. The combination of these two advantages puts Atlanta in position to not only win here but so do by perhaps very significant margins.

Bulls at Hawks Prediction 03/01/2019
Some of the sharper books in this market have still priced the Hawks half of a point ahead of the general trend across the market this resonates with us. After all, the Hawks had a practical blueprint for executing just over a month ago that delivered them a double-digit victory over their counterparts. We have to believe that the Hawks will implement this strategy again and see similar results. Even if it is less effective compared to the January 29th episode, Atlanta only needs a basket to win and cover here. We trust they will get it.
