Bulls vs Magic Predictions – Without Noah, Bulls Will Extend Losing Streak

Posted by on 3/10/2010 3:17:02 PM

The Chicago Bulls are struggling in a major way right now and once again, head coach Vinny Del Negro’s head appears to be on the chopping block. The Baby Bulls have now lost five straight – four of which were at home – and it doesn’t get any easier with a road trip to Orlando on Thursday. Online betting cappers should expect another loss.

What: NBA Betting
When: Thursday March 11th – 8:00 PM ET
Where: Amway Arena – Orlando, FL
Key Stat: Bulls have lost five straight

The Storyline – Bulls vs Magic Predictions

After such a positive playoff appearance last year, the Bulls are back to square one. They were sellers at the NBA trade deadline and they aren’t buying into what their coach has to say anymore. While they are still a good team, they are lacking direction right now.

The Magic are rounding into playoff form. Very quietly, they have been on a tear as they are 19-5 in their last 24 games. There’s no reason to expect them to slipup given how they are playing right now.

Offensive Matchups – Bulls vs Magic Predictions

The Bulls have never been a great offensive team and with their defense struggling to boot, they don’t have many answers. Derrick Rose can be special but he’s inconsistent while Luol Deng and Kirk Hinrich might be better served coming off the bench. The Bulls lack depth without John Salmons now and they don’t have much punch coming off the bench.

For the Magic, sportsbook bettors know they are good to start and deep to follow. The Bulls are without Noah, which means Dwight Howard should have a big game inside and open up a lot of problems for the Bulls everywhere else.

Betting Edge: Magic

Defensive Matchups – Bulls vs Magic Predictions

Defense has been a big problem for the Bulls with center Joakim Noah out of the lineup. A couple of weeks ago, they had the best defensive field goal percentage. They have given up at least 100 points in eight straight games and until Noah gets back, this is going to be a consistent problem.

Meanwhile, the Magic are simply one of the best defensive teams in the NBA. Especially at home, they put the clamps down on anyone and the Bulls don’t have an inside presence to keep Dwight Howard busy, so he’ll be an obstacle in the paint all night long.

Betting Edge: Magic

Notable Injuries – Bulls vs Magic Predictions

Sports betting cappers know that the loss of Noah is the big injury in this contest. He’s out for a couple more weeks and the Bulls defense has been reeling without him.

Betting Edge: Magic

Betting Prediction

The Bulls bread and butter is defense but they simply can’t play a lick without their big man in the middle. The Bulls have given up 100 points or more in eight straight games and 254 in their last two. That’s no recipe for success on the road against one of the best teams in the league.

Pick: Magic
