Bulls Knicks Betting Tips – Knicks And Bulls Meet In Big-City Showdown

The New York Knicks have had an up-and-down start to January. They'll try to move forward this Friday night when they take on the Chicago Bulls.

Why Chicago Will Win

This is not high-stakes poker, but NBA basketball can throw in a surprising equivalent of a river card every now and then. Here's how Chicago can surprise the Knicks: This team seems to have New York's number so far this year. The Bulls have won both matchups this season and will look to continue the trend going into Madison Square Garden in the third game between these two teams in the 2012-2013 season.

Even though Chicago is missing its star point guard, Derrick Rose, it has to be said that shooting guard Luol Deng has been leading the way for the Bulls on the scoreboard and will try to do so again versus the Knicks. If he gets the help he needs from big men Carlos Boozer and Joakim Noah, especially in the realm of rebounding at both ends of the floor, Chicago can thrive. Rebounding is a category in which the Knicks have struggled in most games this season. If the Bulls can pound New York on the glass, things are likely to go their way. 

Why New York Will Win

When the best online betting sites size up this game, they will say that the Knicks should win. The main reason is this: The Knicks are tough to beat at home and if the game earlier this week against the Boston Celtics showed anything, it's that they are going to take home games that end in losses very personally.

Carmelo Anthony's reaction to Boston's win and Kevin Garnett's taunts showed that the competitive fire burns very deeply on this Knicks team. All other teams should beware and will need to get ready for a strong and physical kind of battle in the Garden. The Knicks do have one of the best home records in the league so far this season (13-4) and will be looking to build on that stat. Melo is also going to be looking to bounce back after having a poor game against Boston – he should be ready to go.

The last factor that might affect this matchup is Amar'e Stoudemire, who is still working toward normal game rhythm. He is striving to have a big breakout game since his return to action. His presence will be needed for rebounding against the Bulls in a major way.

Who Will Win

New York is due when it comes to playing against Chicago this year. The odds of the Knicks losing a third game to the Bulls in three meetings this season are awfully low, especially when you consider the fact that this game is on the Knicks' home court. In the end, New York is the team that will have the bigger advantage.
