Basketball Betting: Chicago Bulls vs. Charlotte Bobcats

Basketball betting features Michael Jordan’s old team, Chicago, facing the team he helps run, Charlotte, in an Eastern Conference NBA basketball betting matchup.

Basketball betting on the Chicago Bulls was not expected to bear much fruit this year and so far that has held true.  The Bulls have been on a recent NBA basketball betting slump.  From December 2 through December 12 the Bulls went on a basketball betting stretch in which they were 2-3 straight up but 0-5 against the NBA basketball betting board.

This has been the pattern of the Bulls for most of the basketball betting season, which was expected to be a rebuilding project for Chicago.  Despite their already weak reputation with the NBA basketball betting public the Bulls are yet to bring any surprise value that often comes from teams that lack public appeal.

Chicago had an overall basketball betting record of 10-12 straight up and 10-12 against the basketball betting odds.  The Bulls were in the middle of the weak Central Division, which is one of the most lightly regarded in all of basketball betting.  Chicago has been a 4-7-1 under team in away games this season.

Ben Gordon has led the Bulls in scoring with an average of 20.5 points per game.  The Charlotte Bobcats would never remind basketball betting fans of Jordan’s glory days with the Bulls.  Charlotte had an overall basketball betting record of a poor 7-16 straight up, but a much better 13-10 against the basketball betting odds.

That record is a great basketball betting example of how a team that carries little respect with the public can bring excellent value on the board.  Few basketball betting handicappers have the stomach to take a team such as Charlotte.  The Bobcats have been an even 7-7 split against the basketball betting lines in home action this season.

Charlotte has gone 4-9-1 under the total at home.  Charlotte’s 30th ranked offense has been the main problem.  Their leading scorer was Gerald Wallace, who was averaging just 15 points per game.
