They then lost to the San Antonio Spurs before facing the Houston Rockets on Thursday. Now they get another tough opponent as they host the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday.
Here is a look at the contest and NBA predictions.
Oklahoma City Thunder 17-14 ATS on the Road
The Oklahoma City Thunder have been decent on the road against the spread at 17-14. The problem on Monday is that they will be playing with no rest as they were home against the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday. The Oklahoma City Thunder are averaging 106 points per game while allowing 99 per contest. The team has not played as well in recent weeks as they did earlier in the year and now there is no guarantee they are going to be the top seed in the Western Conference.
Under the Total with the Chicago Bulls at Home
The Chicago Bulls have been a great team to bet under the total when they are at home. They went under in 21 of their first 31 home games. They are the second best defensive team in the league as they allow about 92 points per game. They are last in the league in offense as they score just 93 points per game. They are finding ways to win though and they could finish third in the East behind the Miami Heat and Indiana Pacers.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have won 7 of the last 10 in this series and they have covered six of the last ten. Seven of the last nine have gone under the total.
The trends definitely point to a low scoring game so I will go under the NBA betting odds at the sportsbook.
