  • The Bulls will have had four days off when they host the Pelicans on Thursday (8 p.m. ET).
  • Using Bet Labs, we examine how well-rested NBA teams perform late in the season.

The Bulls host the Pelicans on Thursday (8 p.m. ET), and oddsmakers opened New Orleans as a 3.5-point favorite in the Windy City. Chicago has lost three straight and is 14 games under .500, and, of course, the Pelicans have Zion Williamson.

The pubic is backing Zion & Co., as more than 70% of spread tickets have been placed on the Pelicans. And while the Bulls do not have a player as exciting as Zion, Chicago does have an advantage in this matchup.

Pelicans vs. Bulls Betting System Pick

The Bulls last played back on Sunday while the Pelicans are on a standard two days’ rest. That extra time off not only gives players time to rest and recover, but creates an edge for gamblers.
