Why Bet The Chicago Bears To Beat The Warriors
The Chicago Bulls have won three of their last four games, including an 112-107 win over the Sacramento Kings on Monday. They are 26-26 SU and 26-26 ATS this season. They average 102.6 points per game (23rd) and give up 102.1 points per game (6th).
The Bulls shoot 44.1% from the field (24th) and 31.9% from three point land (32nd). Shooting forward Jimmy Butler (24.6 PPG & 6.5 RPG) has been sidelined for the last two games with a heel bruise. He’s listed questionable for Wednesday Night. Butler contributed 28 points in 30 minutes to the 128-100 trip-opening win at Oklahoma City, before taking time off to help soothe his bruised heel.
Shooting guard Dwayne Wade (19.1 PPG & 4.5 RPG) has stepped up his game in Butler’s absence, totaling 50 points, 15 rebounds and nine assists in the games at Houston and Sacramento.
"He’s a great player and hit a big one for us. He’s been doing that for a (long) while," teammate Michael Carter-Williams said. "His instincts are still there. He comes up big down the stretch."
Chicago allows 45.7% shooting from the field (18th) and 36.2% from beyond the arch (19th). They average 47.0 rebounds per game (1st), 5.1 blocks (11th) and 7.8 steals per game (13th). Taj Gibson leads the team with 7.0 rebounds per game and Rajon Rondo with 6.6 assists.
Why Bet The Golden State Warriors To Beat The Bulls
The Golden State Warriors lost their last outing 109-106 to the Sacramento Kings. They are 43-8 SU and 24-25-2 ATS this season. They average 118.2 points per game (1st) and allow 105.3 points per game (15th).
The Warriors shoot 49.9% from the field (1st) and 38.7% from three-point land (2nd). Steph Curry (25.6 PPG & 6.4 APG) scored 35 points against Sacramento. Kevin Durant (25.8 PPG & 8.4 RPG) had an unusually quiet game only shooting 2-10 from the field, 0-6 for three points for 10-points.
"We got what we deserved — before I was tossed and after," Kerr said. "It was one of the worst games we played all season. We had no purpose. The ball didn’t move. I didn’t even recognize our team out there tonight. Maybe we were due for one."
Golden State allows 43.6% shooting from the field (3rd) and 32.2% from three-point land (1st). They average 45.1 rebounds per game (5th), 6.5 blocks (1st) and 9.4 steals per game (1st). Draymond Green leads the Warriors with 8.4 rebounds per game and 1.94 steals.
