Warriors Struggling in Trips to Windy City

Jimmy Butler Draymond Green

The Golden State Warriors looked like a shell of their usual selves at times in the past week but they’re firing on all cylinders now. The Dubs (38-4 SU) dropped two of three games against Denver and Detroit but rebounded in a big way by hammering LeBron James’ Cavaliers 132-98 in Ohio on Monday. Next up on the docket is another road date with an Eastern Conference heavyweight, the Chicago Bulls, on Wednesday.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in 12 of the Bulls' last 14 games vs the Western Conference.
  • The Warriors are 17-2 SU in their last 19 games against the Eastern Conference.
  • The visiting team is 3-8 ATS in the last 11 games in this matchup.

When Golden State and Chicago get together, OVER bettors are laughing all the way to the bank. The OVER has cashed in five of the last seven meetings between the squads. The Windy City has not been friendly territory for Golden State, as Stephen Curry and company are a paltry 2-11 SU in their previous 13 trips to the United Center.

The Bulls, who opened as 6-point underdogs, have been one of the worst bets in the league as of late, failing to cover the closing spread in five of their last six matchups. Fred Hoiberg’s crew has managed the fourth fewest covers in the Association at 16-24 ATS despite winning 24 games outright.
