The Knicks are 14-5 ATS in their last 19 road games and 37-18-1 ATS in their last 56 games overall. The Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The over is 10-4 in Knicks last 14 games as an underdog. The under is 12-3 in Bulls last 15 overall. The Knicks are 6-2 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
The New York Knicks are off to a strong start and have had covering road success dating back to last season, but the lack of tough schedule does have the jury still out on this team overall. The Chicago Bulls are a team I've been hyping up since the preseason, and they continue to roll. The Bulls just have a pep in their step that's different, and they're a tough team to bet against. Even with LaVine dealing with an injury, we're only asked to lay a bucket here. Give me the Bulls.
