They won’t get a break on Wednesday as they face a Houston Rockets team that is averaging 107 points per game.
Let’s look at the matchup and NBA picks.
Chicago Bulls 3-9 ATS on the Road
Not only are the Chicago Bulls playing poorly overall, they are losing against the pointspread. They come into this game with a 3-9 record against the spread on the road. The team simply isn’t scoring enough points to win. They scored just 77 in a loss to the Toronto Raptors on Saturday. The team is counting on players like Carlos Boozer and Kirk Hinrich to lead them on offense and each of those players has seen better days. The only reliable scorer they have right now is Luol Deng.
Houston Rockets 16-9 SU, 13-11-1 ATS
The Houston Rockets are 7-5-1 ATS at home this season. They have been off since Sunday when they played very poorly in a road loss to the Sacramento Kings. They should be really focused for this game on Wednesday. The team is still second in the NBA in scoring at 107 points per game but they are 28th in points allowed at 102 points per game. The team has surprisingly gone under in 9 of their 13 home games this season.
These teams have split their last ten meetings overall with the Houston Rockets winning the last meeting 120-97 in Chicago. The Houston Rockets have won the last two in the series at home and five of the last six in Houston have gone over the total.
I will lay the points in this one and take the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.
