NBA: Bulls (+8) Vs Suns $
The Phoenix Suns are undoubtedly the hottest team in the NBA right now. They have 12 wins in their last 13 games with the only blemish being a road loss in ATL. They managed that streak despite several key players being on the sidelines including Deandre Ayton who is now back in the lineup and playing as well as ever. The Suns are well-coached and have tremendous leadership (Chris Paul) and great young talent (Devin Booker). They are currently the favorites to return to the NBA Championships out of the West.
Laying eight or more on the road for such a powerful team should not normally be a big deal. But tonight they travel to Chicago to face the Bulls who have spent much of the season as first-place leaders in the East. This is not the same as going into a place like Orlando, Washington, or even New York. The Bulls are a quality team with several star players. They are not going to just roll over in such an important matchup as this.
I expect this to be a close competitive game. Eight-point dogs at home for the Bulls is just too juicy for me to pass up even against the best team in the league.
