NBA Picks: Chicago Bulls vs. Sacramento Kings

0 of 3

    The Chicago Bulls have won five consecutive meetings with the Sacramento Kings, which is important to consider when making your NBA picks on Wednesday night as the two teams meet up at Sleep Train Arena.

    Sports bettors will find that the Bulls are three-point road favorites in the pro basketball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total sits at 196 in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this non-conference affair from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction on the total along the way. 

Chicago Bulls

1 of 3

    The Chicago Bulls have dropped three of their last four games, including a 90-81 setback to the Los Angeles Lakers as 4.5-point road underdogs on Sunday.

    Sports bettors will find that the Bulls are 18-12-1 ATS on the road this season, with the OVER going 16-15 in that situation. 

Sacramento Kings

2 of 3

    The Sacramento Kings have scored 100 or more points in 13 of their last 15 games. Against Chicago, they will attempt to bounce back from a disappointing 115-113 loss to the Milwaukee Bucks as one-point home favorites on Sunday.

    Over the last two-plus seasons, the Kings are 20-20 against the spread in March, with the OVER going 28-12 in that situation. 

Prediction

3 of 3

    I'm going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their NBA picks on Wednesday night, as the OVER is 16-8-1 in the Chicago Bulls' last 25 games as a road favorite of three points or less.

    NBA Pick: Over 196
