Chicago Bulls Travel to Sacramento to Face the Kings
As the Chicago Bulls prepare to face the Kings, we wonder about their performances lately. It would seem that they’ve had inconsistencies on both sides of the basketball. The good news is they have superstars Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan.
Were it not for them; the Bulls would be in much worse shape. This matchup against the Kings is a much more favorable matchup.
The Sacramento Kings are on the outskirts of the Western Conference as of today. They’ll likely miss the playoffs considering they’re so far away from the No.10 spot.
However, this doesn’t mean they won’t do their best to string together a few wins. Taking down the Chicago Bulls will be a big morale boost. They’ll have to rely on De’Aaron Fox to help them in their quest today.
Game Preview: Chicago Bulls at Sacramento Kings March 14th
It’s no secret that Chicago has one of the best offenses in the NBA, averaging 112.45 points per game. However, it’s been their defense that concerns us the most over recent weeks.
Not long ago, the Bulls went on a four-game losing streak, including a 130-124 loss to the Hawks. These kinds of games are guaranteed to see the Bulls lose their position in the Eastern Conference.
The Sacramento Kings are on quite the losing streak themselves, and things are getting worse. Domantas Sabonis has also been suspended after an altercation with a referee.
With their season falling apart, a win here could get everyone’s spirits up. The Kings have a strong offense, led by De’Aaron Fox. Averaging 110.01 points per game, they’ll need it all on Monday.
Chicago Bulls at Sacramento Kings Betting Prediction
These two teams last faced off on February 16th, 2022. The Bulls came in as six-point favorites and won the game 125-118. Considering that wasn’t very long ago, the margin and points spread will likely be the same.
The Bulls have a great record against the spread this year but have fallen short when traveling. Still, we have to trust that they can get a win on the road here.
During their losing streak, the Bulls had a tough time at the sportsbook as well. It seems as if they’ve shaken off the cobwebs and are ready to get back to winning. Considering Domantas Sabonis is out for the Kings, they should have a better chance here.
The spread being around six points is pretty good as well. It’ll be helpful since Chicago’s defense has had trouble.
We’d definitely take the over in this game, especially with how both teams have performed recently. In their games against each other, they’ve hit the over six times in ten games.
This season, both of these teams have gone over more times than they’ve gone under. The smartest bet in this one is taking the Chicago Bulls and the over.
