The Bulls are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games and 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games overall. The Clippers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 17-6 in Bulls last 23 overall. The over is 4-1 in Clippers last 5 overall. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings.
The Chicago Bulls are playing well and are worth a look in the underdog role, but they're also a tough sell against some of the better teams in the league, as there's just still some showing and proving to do. The Los Angeles Clippers are playing their best ball of the season, and playing on the end of a back to back shouldn't matter much given that a lot of their stars didn't play much due to a blowout. I'll lay the cheap line with the Clippers at home.
