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

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been in decent shape as they've won three of their last five games overall and they will be gunning for a third straight win after sneaking past the Wizards in a 129-127 road win on Friday. Jevonte Green led the team with 24 points on 10 of 15 shooting, Adama Sanogo added 22 points with 20 rebounds while Coby White and Jevon Carter scored 20 points apiece. As a team, the Bulls shot 49 percent from the field and 14 of 35 from the 3-point line as they worked hard to erase an early 16-point deficit, before they escaped on free throws down the stretch in a game that could've gone either way.

New York Knicks

Meanwhile, the New York Knicks have been in great shape as they are looking to cap off their regular season with a fifth straight win after beating the Nets in a 111-107 home win on Friday. Jalen Brunson led the team with 30 points and 11 assists, Josh Hart added 1 points on six of nine shooting while OG Anunoby and Mitchell Robinson each scored 15 points. As a team, the Knicks shot 45 percent from the field and 14 of 30 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start and fell into an early 17-point deficit, before they flipped the script with a dominant 30-13 third quarter push to pull off the impressive comeback victory.

  • The Knicks rank 1st in the league for opponent free throw percentage this season (76.3%).
  • The Bulls rank 30th in the league for opponent three-point field goals attempts per game this season (39.5).
  • The Bulls rank 29th in the league for opponent three-point field goals made per game this season (14.6).

Bulls vs Knicks prediction

The Bulls are still shorthanded with Andre Drummond still out, and they have Ayo Dosunmu listed as questionable, while the Knicks are still without Duane Washington Jr and Julius Randle. The Bulls have been in decent form lately, but they were far from convincing in their narrow win over the struggling Wizards. I am more comfortable going with the more consistent Knicks, who are riding a four-game win streak at the moment. I can see the Knicks winning this one at home, but with the line so big, I think there is some value with the Bulls to keep this one relatively close in the end.
