Faves are Hot When Clippers, Bulls Meet

Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin

The Chicago Bulls have struggled to adapt to rookie head coach Fred Hoiberg’s new system so far in the NBA season and have been on the losing end of three-straight games ahead of Thursday’s home matchup with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 2-5 ATS in their last seven games with no days off.
  • The visiting team is 8-2 SU and ATS in its last 10 games in this matchup.
  • The Clippers are 5-0 SU and ATS in their last five games on the road against the Bulls.

Fourth quarter collapses have been the norm for the Bulls as of late, as Chicago has faltered late against the Hornets, Suns and Celtics entering the game. The Clippers have won six of seven and three in a row in the wake of a 109-95 win over Milwaukee on Wednesday and appear to finally be getting their act together after a rough start to the campaign.

Wagering on chalk has been very profitable in recent meetings between the Clips and Bulls. The favored team has paid out in seven out of the last eight clashes between the clubs.
