Orlando Magic vs Chicago Bulls Pick, Prediction, and Odds
This upcoming Thursday, March 8th we have a match-up between two of the strongest teams in the NBA's Eastern Conference. The Orlando Magic will have a big task when they head on the road to take on the Chicago Bulls and their All-Star point guard Derrick Rose. The Magic have their own All-Star though in Dwight Howard, who is not only the best center in basketball, but is one of the most dominant forces inside since Shaquille O'Neal. This game will be a huge one, and currently the Bulls are sitting in 2nd place in the East with an incredibly impressive 29-8 record. The Magic on the other hand are sitting at 23-13 overall. The real thing that I feel is worth pointing out here is how strong the Bulls have been on their home court, as they have posted a 14-2 record. Both teams feature some strong players, and this game should be an excellent betting option as well when all is said and done.

The first question I have for this Orlando Magic team, is how they plan on slowing down Derrick Rose. Rose has been dominant against almost every team that he's played against, and I'm not sure if the Magic have the defensive firepower to be able to slow down D-Rose on Thursday. Another question though is for the Bulls' defense, and it is if they will be able to slow down the beast inside, Dwight Howard? Both teams need to figure out a way to stop the other teams' All-Star, but I do definitely think that one team stands out as a favorite to me to take down a strong win.
Tip off for this one is set for 8:00pm EST, and the game will be televised on TNT. This game will be one of the first few for both of these teams in the second half of the NBA season, so a big win for either of these teams would set a standard for the remainder of the year.

The Chicago Bulls. At home. Just those two lines right there make me get a bit worried for whoever their opponent is. Rose seems motivated this season to prove that the Bulls are serious contenders, and I think that they'll show that on Thursday night against the Magic. While I think the Magic can keep it close for a bit, I'm taking the Bulls strong all-around roster to pull off a nice win. I can see the Bulls taking this one down by about six or seven here. Look for Luol Deng to be a big player as well, as he definitely benefits from all of the attention that Rose constantly gets.

I expect the Bulls to be pretty good sized favorites here, but if I can get this line at around -5 or -4 for Chicago I'll be jumping all over it. The Magic have to talent to keep it within 9 or 10, so don't go too big when betting on this one!
