Chicago Bulls vs Cleveland Cavaliers prediction

You can make a case for either side here, and it will be interesting to see how the Cleveland Cavaliers respond from the travel from Paris and time zone change again. With that said, the Cavs are rolling off wins right now, and they've won five straight games against the Bulls, which includes a win a couple of days before Christmas. The Bulls are just 6-12 SU on the road, which doesn't bode well for them here. I'll ride the hot hand and lay the reasonable number with the Cavs at home.
