Chicago Bulls vs Los Angeles Lakers prediction

The Los Angeles Lakers need to win games like this at home if they're going to gain ground in the standings and make a real run at a playoff spot. However, the Lakers have yet to play consistent ball, and I'm not thrilled to back them in the favorite role. The Chicago Bulls continue to win games and cover numbers, and they beat the Lakers last month as 3.5 point underdogs. You can argue we're getting free points with the better team. Give me the Bulls.
