Our Sportsbooks: What a difference a year makes huh?
Coming into the 2007-08 season, the general consensus was that the Chicago Bulls, (10-17 SU, 8-19 ATS, 13-14 O/U), would be one of the few legitimate contenders to win the eastern conference title while the Orlando Magic, (21-11 SU, 23-9 ATS, 16-16 O/U) even after acquiring free agent forward Rashard Lewis, were expected to be a middle-of-the-pack team that was still a couple of years – and players – away from really being competitive.
Well, that scenario has been thrown out the window with the Bulls’ dismal start –and Orlando’s equally surprising strong start to the season.
Now, the team’s face each other tonight with totally different agendas on their respective itineraries.
Orlando is 6-4 in its last 10 contests and has won three straight coming into this affair, including a 104-95 win over the Charlotte Bobcats on Saturday.
The Bulls, on the other hand, are just looking to build some continuity after having won consecutive games for the first time all season, (though they beat two patsies in New York and Milwaukee).
Chicago is averaging a league-low 91.9 points, but they’ve scored at least 100 over the Bucks and Knicks in their last two wins and shot 50 percent from the field for just the third time this season in beating New York 100-83 on the road on Sunday.
Orlando beat Chicago two out of three times last season.
Here is a look at tonight’s Key Trends, followed by my NBA Betting Free Picks:
Key Magic Trends
The Magic are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a road favorite of 0.5-4.5.
The Magic are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
The Magic are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 games as a road favorite.
Key Bulls Trends
The Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.
The Bulls are 13-3-1 ATS in their last 17 vs. NBA Southeast.
The Bulls are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog of 0.5-4.5.
Key Head-to-Head Trends
The Over is 7-1 in Magic last 8 road games vs. a team with a losing home record.
The Under is 5-1 in Magic last 6 games as a road favorite.
The Over is 5-0 in Bulls last 5 games as an underdog of 0.5-4.5.
The Under is 5-0 in Bulls last 5 vs. a team with a winning S.U. record.
Key Totals Trends
The Under is 8-1 in the last 9 meetings in Chicago.
The Magic are 4-10 ATS in the last 14 meetings.
The Road team is 5-1 ATS in the last 6 meetings.
Analysis: While the Bulls have looked pretty good their last two games, let’s not forget they were facing the disappointing Milwaukee Bucks and dismal New York Knicks. Still, something tells me that the Bulls will cover the spread against the league’s best ATS team tonight – with the likelihood of winning outright being a very real scenario. Take the Bulls to cover while picking up a win over a quality team.
