NBA betting continues as the Chicago Bulls will host the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday, March 15th in this Eastern Conference versus Western Conference matchup at the United Center. This will be the finale of a two-game series. The Bulls will try to split it one game apiece while being at the comfort of home.
Most fans, I think, are still on the fence whether or not the Sacramento Kings are legit basketball contenders. No need to think it over. They are. Currently sitting at 3rd in the Western Conference standings, the Kings are one of the best offenses in the NBA led by their high-low duo in Domantas Sabonis and De’Aaron Fox. Both are having tremendous years and, if they weren’t playing in Sacramento, would be getting a lot more national attention.
Having two winners in a trade is very difficult. I think we can call the Pacers-Kings trade a win-win. Sabonis has been the missing link the Kings have needed. 19 points 12 rebounds (leads NBA) and 7 assist from your center are stats un heard of outside of back to back MVP Nikola Jokic. Difference is, I surprised you with those stats because you never heard them on a major media network. He truely is a tremendous player and at only 26 years old, hes got a ton of great years left for the NBA and the city of Sacramento.
Thats the question I keep asking myself when I look at the Chicago Bulls as a whole. A solid season last year, only to falter and be 5 games under .500 this year. One night beat the Nuggets by 21 and then the next lose to the Pacers at home. It’s hard to figure this team out. Even management didn’t know what to do. Sell Lavine or trade for a postseason run? There answer lies right in the middle.
The Bulls are hear to tread water unless a miracle happens in the last 30 days. Zach Lavine and Demar DeRozan are going to carry the offense and the rest of the team is here to complete their cardio. Vucevic is solid, but given his age, can’t be consistent, especially at the rim defensively. Trying to guess which team will show up is a fools game and why they are almost dead even ATS this season.
The Kings and Bulls have played each other one time this year. That was in December where the Kings defended their home floor in a 9 point victory. Zach Lavine was able to score 41 points, but shocker it went for not as the Bulls still lost. Don’t expect much of a difference in this one.
In this matchup, I’m taking the Kings covering the 1 point. Honestly, I’m shocked its essentially a pick em. I think the Kings are clearly the better team and even though they’re on the road I think the spread should be higher. Give me the Kings.
The over under is sitting at 239. That is high for a team with a two man offense. I don’t think this game will be as back and forth as other games and I would take the under. It hit 220 last time. I think about 230 is the right spot.
