Looking to grab on some early lines today to continue the decent run on the NBA picks we are having now.
CHI Bulls -7 to beat LA Lakers @ 1.68 (Bet365) – 3 points
The Chicago Bulls showed last time around against the Golden State Warriors that they are up to beating almost any team in the NBA including ending a 19 game winning streak at the Oracle Arena.
The Bulls have finally started to see signs of Derrick Rose come back to NBA MVP form, netting 30 points last time around. Pau Gasol has been a double double machine so far this campaign. He is the one who led the Bulls to a 20 point victory over the Lakers at home, and will be looking to lead the lineup of players including Noah, Mirotic, Gibson, Hinrich, Brooks and Snell to another victory against the worst team in the Western Conference. Not to forget the possible inclusion of Jimmy Butler who has been the top scorer for the Bulls this campaign; but missed last time out due to an illness, so its unclear if he will take part.
The Lakers have lost 9 straight games now, and most of them they have been smashed by 10 or more points that too against like New Orleans, Utah Jazz, Miami Heat among weaker teams that they have fallen to in their recent stretch. Nick Young will be expected to step up for the absence of Kobe Bryant; but it will be needed to see how he handles the pressure of being the main guy there. Last time they were leading by 19 points and finally lost by 6 against the Wizards, so this young team may not necessarily have what it takes to deliver the victory.
Chicago has won three straight and six of seven against Los Angeles Lakers, and I expect them to take another victory against the Lakers tonight.
