Bulls vs. Lakers Point Spread: NBA Odds, PredictionCat:未分類

NBA Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Almost all of the stats are ugly to the Bulls. They’ve lost eight straight and they are up on your way. Chicago is 3-7 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 after allowing 100 points or more in their previous game and 3-11-1 ATS in the past 15 against teams from the NBA Pacific Division. The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in their last five matches against the Western Conference. The Lakers have been 14-9 straight up at home but have covered in only nine of these games. They’re 4-10 ATS in non-conference matches and 7-16 ATS when facing a team with a losing record. That’s ugly. Chicago Bulls The Bulls have lost all the last seven, giving up at least 117 points in four of these games. This team has a listless defence that cannot stop anyone. Even though they allow 111.0 points per game on the season (17th), they have allowed an average of 126.7 within their past three. This includes a beat down in the hands of this Golden State Warriors, who also scored 146 points from this team. The Bulls have looked utterly lost since trainer Jim Boylen took over the group from recently fired head coach Fred Hoiberg. The gamers do not enjoy his style and also have had run-ins with him. Oddly enough, although the front office just gave Boylen an extension and a rise. The team is just 5-14 under Boylen. Los Angeles Lakers The Lakers are without LeBron James right now but they can’t pin all their problems on his absence. They had been 17-10 at one stage this season and are just 6-13 since. He’s been out since Christmas Day but the Lakers decline started while he was there. This team has dropped five of the last seven and seven of 10. The Lakers offence has completely disappeared without James in the lineup since they’re averaging just 107.3 points per game over their last 15 contests (23rd in the NBA). That’s a massive dip in the 121.0 that they averaged in October (third in the NBA). The issue is that this can be a very disjointed roster and players aren’t developing. Kyle Kuzma is enjoying great but Lonzo Ball is donating just 9.4 points per game while shooting 36.2percent from the area this month. JaVale McGee averaged 15.5 points a game in October but is down to just 8.4 in January. And Brandon Ingram is still a bit inconsistent as he’s scored 17 or more four times this month but scored 15 or less in another three games. Insert in that Josh Hart has just 17 points in total in the previous 3 games and lots of the fingers start pointing towards Walton that he can’t create the young players on this roster. The good thing is that the Bulls are a larger mess and the Lakers should take care of business in this area. Read more: adamssportsblog.com
