Chicago bulls Cleveland cavaliers

The NBA is back in action tonight, and the Chicago Bulls will hope to leave their struggles behind them as the team went 1-6 both SU and ATS prior to the All-Star break. Unfortunately, they’ll have to attempt to turn the page on their recent skid in Cleveland against a Cavs team who’s 22-4 on their home court this season.
