Hornets vs Bulls Prediction for Today's Game

Based on recent trends and head to head stats, Hornets the Scorecaster predicts Hornets to win tonight's game by -6 points. This model factors in recent against the spread (ATS) trends and scoring which predicts Hornets to cover the 6.5 point spread and the total to go and the total to go under 236.5 points. 

Staff Pick CHI ATS (-6.5)

The Hornets come into this one having lost 2 of their last 3 games. With LaMelo Ball back the Hornets have begun to play decent basketball. The Bulls come into this one having lost 3 of their last 4 games. Nikola Vucevic was the leading scorer in their last game with 23 points. The Hornets have been playing well but with this game being in Chicago I don't see them taking down the Bulls. Take Chicago to win and cover the 6.5 points.
