Bulls at Clippers: Odds, betting lines, predictions and picks
Clippers 117, Bulls 102
Money line (ML)
The Clippers (-750) are huge money line favorites in this game despite just a 6-4 record on the season. It’s clear who is the better team here, but the records aren’t all that different. The Clippers should have no problem winning this game, but we’ve already seen them be upset by teams like the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season.
Given how streaky Los Angles can be on a night-to-night basis, PASS on the money line here in favor of the point spread as it just doesn’t provide enough value for a potential payout.
Against the spread (ATS)
The CLIPPERS -11.5 (-110) are double-digit favorites Sunday afternoon and it’s not hard to see why. They have a healthy roster, an explosive offense and several of the best on-ball defenders in the NBA.
They are also facing a Chicago team allowing 120.2 points per game this season. Expect this game to be close for a while, but for the Clippers to assert their dominance in the second half and cover this spread to win by at least 12 points.
Both teams are averaging at least 110 PPG with the Bulls currently sixth in scoring offense. With Chicago without several players, the Bulls could be in a bit of trouble against Los Angeles’ defense.
For that reason, take the UNDER 221.5 (-105).
