Basketball Betting – Bulls vs. Hornets

February 16th, 2024 Live NBA Betting Lines

Basketball betting has the New Orleans Hornets hosting the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. The Hornets are solid basketball  favorites in this matchup. Let’s take a look at the basketball betting numbers for the Bulls and the Hornets.

Basketball scheduling information does not favor the Bulls in this game. It is the 6th game of a 7-game road trip for the Bulls and the second of a back-to-back as the Bulls were in Houston last night. The NBA betting schedule shows that the Hornets are playing the 2nd game of a four-game homestand.

Basketball betting trends show that the teams have split their last 10 meetings both straight up and against the basketball odds. The Hornets have won three of the last five games against the Bulls in New Orleans but they are only 2-3 against the basketball odds in those games.

Chicago hasn’t done much this season to inspire much basketball betting confidence. The Bulls have a losing record both straight up and against the NBA betting line. They are not very good on the road even when they are getting big points versus the basketball betting line. On paper the Bulls seem to have enough talent with Ben Gordon, rookie Derrick Rose and Luol Deng but more often than not they don’t win.

New Orleans wins games because of their defense and because Chris Paul is a superstar. That doesn’t mean the Hornets always cover the basketball odds though. New Orleans is below .500 versus the basketball betting odds at home and on the road.

The NBA betting over is 6-3-1 in the last 10 games between the two teams. At New Orleans, the over is 4-0-1 in terms of the basketball betting total in the last five games. The Hornets are normally a good under team versus the basketball total at home but against the Bulls that has not been the case recently.

One of the busiest days during the basketball week is Wednesday. <Open a New Account at SBG Global and enjoy all the great basketball action.
