Basketball Pick Bulls vs Cavs

Chicago Bulls face off against Lebron James at the Q Monday night at 8:05 and the game can be seen live on TNT or on the NBA Network. 
If you caught the first game and are a Chicago Bulls fan than you may be a little concerned and well I really don't blame you as James and the Cavaliers looked unstoppable last Saturday night as they coasted to an easy 13 point victory in game 1. So the Cavaliers are looking to go up 2-0 tonight. The current NBA Line has the Cavs favored by 10.5 points with an over under of 191.

Shaq even looked like his old self thanks to James' vitalizing 24 point home playoff opener. The total rebounds were dominated by the Clevelanders 50 to 38. Young Florida Gator Joakim Noah was the only power player that Chicago tried to match up against down low and the results were disastrous. "We have some length up front," Bulls coach Vinny Del Negro said. "We're not the biggest team, obviously, but we've done a nice job rebounding all year. But [the Cavs'] combination of guys causes a lot of problems. Shaq can wear you down." O'Neil finished with 12 pts and five rebounds with 3 blocks playing 24 minutes and Vajejao had 15 boards to ensure a strong rebounding night for the oversized Cavs.  "It's something we've been looking forward to all season," James said. "We have a lot of size, a lot of depth. We showed it."

Game 1 was not really as close as the 13 point win looks like as they were up 18 points and just put on the cruise control ending at victory lane.  Derrick Rose had 28 points and actually got Chicago within 7 points in the fourth quarter at one point before faltering. "In the NBA betting playoffs, possessions are huge," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "(Varejao) had a lot of them for us. You see it in the 15 rebounds but he got many more 50-50 balls that may not show up in the stat column. The energy he brings to the game when it comes to earning more possessions is off the charts. He can be a pest."

The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog. The Bulls are 1-4-1 ATS in their last 6 Conference Quarterfinals games.  The Bulls are 1-4 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Cleveland.

The Cavaliers are 13-3 ATS in their last 16 Conference Quarterfinals games. The Cavaliers are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games.

The Under is 4-0 in the Bulls last 4 overall. The Under is 4-1 in the Bulls last 5 road games. The Under is 23-9-1 in the Cavaliers last 33 vs. the Central. The Under is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings between the two teams.
