Matt McCuen tries to stay hot with his NBA best bets. Can he continue the run with Chicago today?

NBA Best Bet For Saturday: Backing the Bulls at Home

We are red hot in the NBA at the moment as we are on a current streak of 10-2 over the last two weeks, including just one loss this week. This feels great to be on a run this hot, but we still have a lot of work to do! Last night we cashed in very easily on the Hornets money line, and I found another line tonight that I think is simply way off.

Cleveland Cavaliers vs Chicago Bulls Prediction

The Cleveland Cavaliers will head to the Windy City to take on the Chicago Bulls. These two teams have both been impressive in their own right this season. The Cavs enter red the year with low expectations to make the postseason.

They have really shocked the NBA with their style of play and performance. They are also doing all of this without the best player on their roster in the form of Collin Sexton. The man who has stepped up has been all-star guard Darius Garland. Garland has really picked up the scoring for the Cavs this year while also being the team's best playmaker.

Jarret Allen also landed himself a spot in the all-star game this year for the Cavs and has been outstanding on both ends of the floor this season for Cleveland. The Bulls enter play as one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference. Their Achilles heel has been playing good teams. They have really struggled against top-tier teams in the NBA this season, and the Chicago faithful are hoping that is something they can get fixed by the time the playoffs come around.

The Bulls, however, have exceeded expectations from a record standpoint this season. The star for this team has been the pride of Compton, California, Demar Derozan. Derozan has been lights out for the Bulls this season and is currently one of the favorites to win MVP. His stellar play landed him an opportunity to play in the all-star game this season. The Bulls have been without two key pieces to the team in Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso. Despite their bad record against the NBA's best teams, this is still a team that not many want to see come playoffs. 

I will be backing the Bulls on the moneyline tonight. The first thing here to address is the Cavs are on a back-to-back tonight. They just took a hard-fought loss to the Miami Heat in Miami, and now they have to turn around and play a road game in Chicago. Chicago has also been a tough place to play for opponents this season as the Bulls have the least losses at home of any team in the eastern conference this season.

The Bulls bring a 24-10 home record to the plate. This is a great atmosphere to play in, and the Bulls obviously feel comfortable playing here. This is a game I also think that the Bulls match up very well from a guard standpoint. I think the Cavs will struggle to guard LaVine and Derozan one on one, which should create a lot of open shots for this Bulls team.

They should be as healthy as they have been the last couple of weeks for this game tonight which should be another advantage. This could be a game where the Cavs come out hot in the first half, but the full game will go to the Bulls as fatigue will set in. Let’s keep things rolling on the hardwood tonight!
