The Hornets are 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 road games and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games playing on 0 days rest. The Bulls are 35-15-1 ATS in their last 51 games as a favorite and 5-15 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The over is 5-1 in Hornets last 6 road games. The under is 15-6 in Bulls last 21 overall. The Hornets are 2-6 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Chicago and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings.

The Charlotte Hornets are on the end of a back to back, but they're playing the better ball right now, and they have more to play for in terms of fighting for a better seed in the play-in tournament. The Chicago Bulls have not only had issues against good teams all season long, but there's a lack of motivation here with them locked into the sixth seed. It wouldn't be surprising at all to see the Bulls rest some players for this contest. Also, the Bulls are losing their last five games by an average of 8.8 points. I'll grab the free bucket.
