The NY Knicks and Chicago Bulls meet Tuesday in NBA action at the United Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Knicks vs Bulls prediction.

New York Knicks

The New York Knicks have been in decent shape as they've won five of their last nine games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after blowing past the Bucks in a 122-109 road win on Sunday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 43 points and eight assists on 16 of 32 shooting, Donte DiVincenzo drained eight 3-pointers to finish with 26 points while Isaiah Hartenstein chipped in with 18 points and 10 rebounds on eight of nine shooting. As a team, the Knicks shot 48 percent from the field and 14 of 29 from the 3-point line as they struggled to contain the Bucks early on and trailed by 11 points at halftime, before they exploded for 72 points in the second half to win comfortably in the end.

Chicago Bulls

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been in a bit of a rut as they've lost six of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping to bounce back here after getting thrashed by the Magic in a 113-98 road defeat on Sunday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 30 points and five assists on 13 of 22 shooting, Javonte Green added 15 points with three blocks while Ayo Dosunmu and Andre Drummond each scored 14 points. As a team, the Bulls shot 50 percent from the field and six of 20 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and could never recover after scoring just 14 points in the first quarter to trail by as many as 21 points early.

Knicks vs Bulls prediction

The Knicks are still missing Julius Randle and Duane Washington Jr. while the Bulls are keeping an eye on Alex Caruso and Ayo Dosunmu who are both listed as day to day. The Knicks haven't been at their best lately, but they would've taken plenty of confidence from their gritty win over the Bucks on Sunday, while the Bulls have gone cold lately and just got demolished by the Magic in their last outing. You can make an argument for either side here, but I think the Knicks are playing the better basketball at the moment and I think they get the job done behind their defense.
