Basketball betting on Monday includes what should be a very competitive battle between the Chicago Bulls and New Jersey Nets.
Pro basketball betting scheduling information shows that this is the last game of a four-game road trip for the Bulls.
Basketball betting trends show that the Bulls and Nets have split their last 10 meetings both straight up and against the pro basketball betting number. At New Jersey, the Nets have won and covered the basketball odds in the last four games against Chicago. Last year New Jersey won 110-102 and 112-103 at home against the Bulls as basketball betting stats show. It has been a home team dominated series recently with the home squad winning the last five times as basketball betting results indicate.
Basketball betting statistics show that Chicago has just not found a way to win very often on the road this season. Ben Gordon has led them in scoring along with rookie Derrick Rose but the Bulls have struggled defensively and that is not the way to cover the basketball odds on the road.
New Jersey is a very similar team to Chicago in most respects but there is one major difference. New Jersey has actually played better on the road than they have at home as basketball betting stats indicate. The Nets have just not defended their home court but in this matchup against the Bulls they should have the pro basketball betting edge. New Jersey can score with Devin Harris and Vince Carter and their offense might be able to outscore the Bulls and cover the basketball betting number.
The last five games between the two teams have gone over the pro basketball betting total. At New Jersey, three of the last four games have gone over the basketball betting total. That could happen again since both teams are strong offensively as basketball betting numbers show while they both struggle on the defensive end.
