Atlanta Hawks vs. Chicago Bulls Prediction: Should You Back DeMar DeRozan, Bulls in Play-In Tournament?

Last night was the first of the NBA Play-In Tournament. It was action-packed, with the Lakers and Kings both taking care of business with wins. Tonight’s matchups aren’t as star-studded, but there is one game I am looking to bet on. Let’s dive into my favorite NBA play for Wednesday night…

Atlanta Hawks vs. Chicago Bulls Prediction

The Hawks have yet to lose a game in the NBA Play-In Tournament. Can we expect this trend to continue on the road against the Bulls on Wednesday? I was a little surprised to see Chicago laying three points in this matchup; that’s some serious respect for a Bulls team that finished the season 39-43 with limited star-power.

Trea Young has made his return to the Hawks after dealing with an injury. With three games under his belt heading into the tourney, the Hawks and their perfect Play-In record look like the easy play on the spread. I want to stay as far away as possible from the Hawks in this game; we know how easy-looking plays typically end up turning out…

Who wants to lay 3 points with the Bulls in this game? It doesn’t feel like a popular play, and that only makes me like Chicago even more in this spot. Let’s not forget how well DeMar DeRozan has been playing of late, dropping 30+ points in each of his last four games-played. I’m expecting another big game out of DeRozan at home against this poor Hawks defense.

The Bulls are the least popular team in the Play-In tourney. Nobody wants to bet on them, but they are three-point favorites tonight for a reason. The Hawks have yet to lose a game in this tournament since they started the Play-In, but I’m expecting that trend to come to an end on Wednesday night. Fade the Hawks and back DeRozan and the Bulls to defend their home floor with a big win, shocking the public and chalking their Hawks bets.
