Chicago Bulls at Los Angeles Clippers Betting Analysis
The Chicago Bulls look to sweep a three game road trip in Los Angeles against the Clippers on Monday night.
The Clippers are coming off a 131-110 drubbing at the hands of the New Orleans Pelicans on Saturday night. The Bulls beat the Lakers 118-108 on Sunday night.
This will be the second and final game in a regular season series that Los Angeles leads 1-0 after winning 108-103 in Chicago on January 31st. Tip-off is scheduled for 10:30 PM EST/7:30 PST from Crypto.com Arena.
Bulls Keep Rolling
The Chicago Bulls upped their record to 36-38 on the season after Sundays win against the Lakers. Turnover differential proved to be the difference as Los Angeles doubled their turnovers 18-9.
Zach Lavine led all scorers with 32 points on an efficient 13-19 from the field. Demar Derozan recorded a 17 point, 10 assist double-double while Colby White added 13 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists off the bench.
The Bulls currently occupy the 10th seed, the last team to make the play-in tournament with a 2.5 game lead over the Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers. Chicago is a below average team in scoring, ranking 20th with 113.4 points a game on 49% shooting.
Defense has become their calling card as they now sit at 5th in defensive rating and 7th in defensive scoring with only 112.2 points allowed per game. Alex Caruso (foot) and Javonte Green (knee) are both listed as questionable for this contest.
Time Running Out On Clippers
The Los Angeles Clippers fell to 39-36 on the season after losing to New Orleans on Saturday. The Pelicans dominated the interior with a 45-31 rebounding advantage while outscoring the Clippers 54-38 in the paint.
Bones Hyland led his team in scoring with only 18 points off the bench. Kawhi Leonard scored only 12 points, going 4-16 from the field and 0-6 from three-point land.
Paul George missed his second straight game with a knee sprain and remains out for the next 2-3 weeks. Kawhi Leonard is listed as probable with a face injury while Brandon Boston Jr and Norman Powell have both already been ruled out.
The Clippers currently occupy the 5th seed in the Western Conference, only one game from dipping into the play-in tournament.
The Clippers rank 23rd in scoring with only 112.8 points a game on 47.4% from the floor. They sit at 10th in defensive rating and 12th in defensive scoring with 112.6 points allowed per game.
Chicago Bulls at Los Angeles Clippers Expert Prediction
The Los Angeles Clippers are 4.5 point home favorites with the total set at 220.5. This is a pivotal game for both sides as playoff positioning is at stake.
The Bulls are playing on back-to-back nights but the Clippers are dealing with injuries as Paul George is out and Kawhi Leonard is banged up. Chicago is on fire, going 7-2 SU over their last nine games and 4-1 ATS over their last five games.
The Bulls have also dominated the recent head-to-head meetings, going 5-2 ATS across their last seven contests. I will gladly take the Bulls with the points tonight and could see sprinkling the money line as well.

Like most, he took his lumps when he first got started, but now he is one of the most respected NASCAR bettors in the industry. Andy has expanded that sports betting experience to become profitable in a number of other sports, transforming this interest from a side hobby to a major source of income.
