The Chicago Bulls and Houston Rockets meet Saturday in the NBA action at the Toyota Center. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
The Chicago Bulls are averaging 113 points on 49 percent shooting and allowing 112.7 points on 46.8 percent shooting. DeMar DeRozan is averaging 25.1 points and 5.1 assists, while Zach LaVine is averaging 24.7 points and 4.7 rebounds. Nikola Vucevic is the third double-digit scorer and Patrick Williams is grabbing 4.2 rebounds. The Chicago Bulls are shooting 36.1 percent from beyond the arc and 80.8 percent from the free throw line. The Chicago Bulls are allowing 35.3 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 42.6 rebounds per game.
The Houston Rockets are averaging 110.3 points on 45.4 percent shooting and allowing 118.2 points on 47.9 percent shooting. Jalen Green is averaging 21.7 points and 3.8 rebounds, while Kevin Porter Jr. is averaging 18.8 points and 5.4 rebounds. Alperen Sengun is the third double-digit scorer and Jabari Smith Jr. is grabbing 6.9 rebounds. The Houston Rockets are shooting 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 75.4 percent from the free throw line. The Houston Rockets are allowing 37.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46.4 rebounds per game.
The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Rockets are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 Saturday games and 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The under is 16-6 in Bulls last 22 overall. The over is 5-2 in Rockets last 7 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings.
I'm not sure what the Chicago Bulls have done recently to deserve to be laying this sort of chalk on the road, but I'm not buying it. The Houston Rockets are a mess obviously, but they've also been a lot more competitive recently, and that includes losing their last 5 games by an average of 0.2 points. The Rockets lose, but they play hard. The Bulls have issues winning games these days, let alone covering big chalk. Give me the home dog.
