Hawks vs Bulls prediction

The Bulls should be favored at home, and they've won 4 of the last 6 games against the Hawks. The Hawks are also the worst cover team in the NBA at 35.3 percent. However, the Bulls have been inconsistent as all hell and a team I've had a hard time feeling them out all season. Right when the Bulls look like they're turning the corner, they go on a losing skid. The Hawks beat the Bulls on the road by 12 points earlier this month as two point underdogs, and now they have Trae Young back. A backcourt of Young and Murray can win games by themselves when they're both clicking, and the Bulls don't have the horses to counter, considering they're 22nd in scoring and 18th in field goal percentage. The Bulls could also be without Andre Drummond and Ayo Dosunmu. This feels like a game that will be decided in the final five minutes. I'll grab the free bucket with the Hawks.
