Resident Expert Predictions

San Antonio Spurs
Point Spread Pick
CHI Bulls -10.5

The San Antonio Spurs have dropped 8 games in a row, the current longest losing streak in the NBA. They should find it tough to improve on that tonight on the road against the Chicago Bulls. The visitors have picked up just 5 away wins this season, the joint-fewest in the league. Their point differential in those games is -12.2. With Keldon Johnson and Tre Jones both questionable to play and Jeremy Sochan and Devin Vassell confirmed out, they could be shorthanded too. The hosts, on the other hand, have won 2 straight games and only have Alex Caruso listed as questionable.

Over the last 10 games the Spurs have the worst net offensive and defensive rating in the NBA. With the Bulls in the top 10 in the league in that category, they could be set to dominate tonight. With the potential injuries on the Spurs roster, Stanley Johnson could be set to play a larger role. The forward has the worst defensive rating of any Spurs player who has played 10 games this season, so it could allow the Bulls wings to go off. DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine each have a pair of 30-point performances in their last 6 games. Look for one of these stars to carry the Bulls to a dominant win. The Spurs have allowed 127 points per game over their last 10, and they don’t have the scoring to compensate for it.

Bulls -10.5 available at time of publishing. Playable to Bulls -11.5.

San Antonio Spurs
Game Totals Pick
Over 236.5

Over the last 10 games both these teams have ranked in the top half of the league in pace. Couple that with the defensive issues of the Spurs and we should get a high-scoring encounter. The hosts have ranked 11th in true shooting percentage over that stretch and should be well positioned to take advantage of a poor defense.

With Nikola Vucevic on the floor, the Bulls have been vulnerable in transition. They are 28th in opponent fast-break points per game over their last 10 outings. It is something this young Spurs side could look to exploit to pad their scoring numbers. The Bulls are also 24th in opponent points off turnovers during that time which could create more run-out opportunities for the visitors. I’ll back the over.

Over 236.5 available at time of publishing. Playable to over 237.5.

Show Bio

Like most Lithuanians, I started watching basketball from the age of six. I'm based out in London and played basketball at the University of Lincoln here in the UK. I had always had an interest in the NBA but things really took off in the summer of 2010. That year Linas Kleiza led Lithuania to 3rd place at the World Championships and signed with the Toronto Raptors to replace the departing Chris Bosh. I've been a Raptors fan since that day and I've not missed a game since. I've been handicapping games for more than a decade, specializing in player props.
