The Chicago Bulls (26-39) travel to meet the Charlotte Hornets (32-33) Thursday at Spectrum Center. Tip-off is set for 7 p.m. ET. Below, we analyze the Bulls-Hornets odds and lines, with NBA picks and predictions.
The Bulls are on a four-game slide, and they haven’t covered in either of the games, either. It’s been a power outage on offense, as they have scored 98 or fewer points in each of the outings, and the Under has hit in each of those contests, too.
The Hornets have won two of the past three outings, both against the Detroit Pistons. They’re still just 1-4 ATS across the past five outings, and they lost in Chicago on April 22 in the most recent meeting by a 108-91 count as 1.5-point underdogs.

Bulls at Hornets: Odds, lines, predictions and picks
Hornets 103, Bulls 99
Money line (ML)
The HORNETS (+120) are a value play on their home court, as they look for revenge against the Bulls (-145) after getting toasted 108-91 April 22 in Chi Town. They’re catching Chicago at a good time, as they’re 0-4 SU/ATS in the past four, and the offense is struggling mightily.
Against the spread (ATS)
The HORNETS +2.5 (-105) are not as good of a value catching a bucket-and-a-half as they are straight up, but if you expect a one-possession game, then play Charlotte with the points. They’re a much better play on the money line, however.
UNDER 218.5 (-110) is the way to go, as Chicago has scored 98 or fewer points in each of the past four contests, while Charlotte has scored just 111 or fewer points in each of the past five. The Under is 7-3 in the previous 10 for Charlotte. The Under is the best play on the board.
