The Chicago Bulls face off against the Charlotte Bobcats tonight at the United Center, and the hometown team is favored by (-12) which lets you know what the Vegas oddsmakers think about the ‘Cats. The Bulls have looked impressive of late, and especially Derrick Rose who now appears to have a legitimately good three point jump shot. This will add a lot of different elements to his game when he can pump-fake that three and then burn his man at the rim.
Here is the TV info for this one which tips off at 8:00 PM EST.
TV: SportSouth, CSN-Chicago, DTV: 650, 665, 753, 754.
Look for the Bulls to win this one, but I might hesitate on taking the over just because it is so high. Taj Gibson likes what he is seeing out of his team’s work habits though and these are the lowly Bobcats we are talking about who were recently beaten down by LeBron James and company.
“Guys have a good rhythm. Everybody has been putting in extra work after practice, late at night. It’s shown. I’m happy with our progress,” Gibson said to the AP. “We’re just focused on getting better. It’s early in the season. We understand we’ve got a long way to go.”
The Bulls have built some momentum coming off a resounding win over the Pacers, which showed they mean serious business in the Eastern conference.
Sidenote apology: to my readers who picked the Pacers in that one, in my defense they were undefeated at the time.
Thanks for reading folks, and will keep this schedule/preview/betting line articles coming in the next few weeks.
