Match Prediction New York Knicks Vs Chicago Bulls

Based on how these teams will set up, there’s a decent chance of this game going over the total. After plugging in both teams’ efficiency and pace metrics into my model, I’m projecting a total closer to 220 points.

Here’s a breakdown of the predictions:

  • Close Game: Most analysts expect a close game, with some leaning slightly towards the Bulls due to their home court advantage.
  • Bulls Favored: The Bulls are favored by 1.5 points on the spread according to CBS Sports
  • Knicks Offense: The Knicks’ hot shooting, especially from 3-point range, could be a challenge for the Bulls’ defense.
  • Bulls Defense: Chicago’s strong defense could limit the Knicks’ scoring and help them secure the win.
  • Over/Under: The total score prediction is around 212 points, suggesting a potentially high-scoring game.

Head To Head

  • Overall: Chicago Bulls lead the all-time series 151-128.
  • Regular Season: Bulls also lead the regular season series 127-116.
  • Recent Games: This season, the series is tied 1-1. The Bulls won the last game 108-100 on April 5th, 2024.

New York Knicks Vs Chicago Bulls Preview

The Knicks, who battled back from a 21-point first-half deficit to beat the Kings on Thursday, can feel a bit better about themselves after snapping a three-game losing streak.

However, there won’t be much time to celebrate as the Knicks embark on a four-game NBA road trip, beginning with a stop in Chicago to face the Bulls on Friday night.

Since the Knicks are on the second leg of a back-to-back, the Bulls will have a rest advantage, considering they haven’t played since their home loss Monday to the Hawks.

The rest factor is clearly built into the point spread, with Chicago being bet up to a 1.5-point favorite after opening at -1. With all things being equal, I have the Knicks closer to a two-point road favorite in this spot.

Nonetheless, this is far from an optimal spot for the Knicks, and in this preview I’ll share how bettors can still find value in this game by pivoting to the total.

Knicks Seeking Momentum:

  • Coming off a big comeback win against the Kings, Knicks will look to build momentum.
  • Jalen Brunson and Josh Hart were on fire offensively, combining for 66 points.
  • Knicks will need to improve rebounding and limit turnovers to challenge the Bulls.

Bulls Aiming to Bounce Back:

  • The Bulls suffered a narrow loss to the Knicks on April 5th.
  • Their defense, usually a strength, struggled to contain Brunson and the Knicks’ scorers.
  • Playing at home should be an advantage, but the Bulls need to find their defensive rhythm.

Key Storylines:

  • Offensive Show vs. Defensive Grit: Can the Knicks’ hot shooting continue against a Bulls team known for its defense?
  • Brunson vs. LaVine: A battle between two All-Star caliber guards could decide the outcome.

Chicago Bulls Vs New York Knicks Betting Odds

  • Spread: Chicago -1.5
  • Total: 211.5
  • Moneyline: Chicago -119, New York -100
