Cleveland at Chicago

Thursday 03/31 08:05 PM Eastern

2 units on Chicago -2.5 (-110) (risk 2 to return 3.82)  RESULT: WIN

The Red-Hot Chicago Bulls have won seven straight on way to a 5-1-1 against-the-spread mark. Tonight they look to keep the momentum going as they host the Cavaliers in this all important Eastern Conference matchup. Chicago is looking to grab home court advantage in the first round steam roll over the Cavaliers who can't buy a win on the road. Cleveland snapped a two-month road losing streak Monday with a single point victory at New Orleans however history suggests they fumble in Chicago. The Cavs are 1-11 and a dreadful 2-10 against-the-number last twelve on the road losing by 10.6 points/game and come in sporting a horrid 0-7 straight-up and against-the-spread record last seven on the road vs. a division opponent. A new head coach hasn't helped this. The Bulls on the other hand are 8-4-2 ATS it's last fourteen in second of back-2-back but a solid 4-0-1 ATS at home in the situation are 6-2 (5-3 ATS) last eight hosting Cavaliers including a 113-85 whipping on Dec 8th. Home team in series being 5-0 ATS L2Y's helps the cause. Play on Chicago for two stars.
