Chalk is a Great Option in Bulls-Hawks

The Atlanta Hawks and Chicago Bulls are trending in different directions ahead of Monday night’s tilt in the Windy City. Atlanta can punch their playoff ticket with a win tonight, and the trends are working in their favor to do so. The favored team is 10-0 SU and ATS in the last 10 matchups between the Eastern Conference clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Hawks are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games.
  • The Bulls are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • ​​The total has gone UNDER in nine of the Hawks' last 12 games with one day off between games.

As of February 26, these teams were separated by just 4.5 games in the standings. Since then, the Hawks have gone 13-3 SU to move into the conference’s third seed while the Bulls have lost 10 of 16 to fall into the ninth spot, outside of the playoff picture.

Chicago has allowed 108.5 points per 100 possessions over the last 16 games. The Bulls’ mins-7 net rating during that stretch is better than cellar dwellers New Orleans, Phoenix and Philadelphia.
