Denver at Chicago

3 units on Denver +5 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73) RESULT: WIN
This line opened at Chicago -2 and it's moving the wrong way. Yeah, the Bulls have won six straight at home and 10 of their last twelve at the United Center but they just don't match up well against the Nuggest. Denver has owned the Bulls over the past several years and beat them 99-81 in November. Denver struggles on the road - everywhere but in Chicago. They've won 3 of their last 4 in Chicago and they are 10-5 against Eastern Conference teams this season. Camby is questionable but 'Mello is back. Chicago's on a tear but this spread is just too big as Denver could easily win this game outright. Three stars on Denver plus the points.
