– Shark Bites
- The total has gone OVER in five of the Bulls’ last seven games at home.
- The Bulls are 6-2 SU and ATS in their last eight games at home against teams with winning records.
- The Hawks are 7-0 SU in their last seven games after losing as a favorite.
The Hawks dug themselves out of a 24-point hole at halftime against the Clippers in their last game, which resulted in a 115-105 loss. The setback was especially disappointing considering the Clips were playing without stars Chris Paul and Blake Griffin.
Chicago’s struggles vs Atlanta date back to last year as well, as the Bulls have lost six straight to the Hawks. Second-year Jerian Grant is the new man running the floor in the Bulls’ revolving door of point guards, as Michael Carter-Williams was recently removed from his starting role. Beleaguered veteran Rajon Rondo has served as the backup for the better part of a month.
The UNDER is a solid bet when the Bulls and Hawks get together, as four of the last five meetings between the clubs have gone below the closing total.
