Here are our best predictions for Monday, January 23:
Performance: NBA Headlines, Eagles vs Bulls
Odds/Bets: -104 ($31.20 win $30)
book: fan duel
Time/TV: 7:10 p.m. (NBA League Pass)
Our opinion: Putting aside a loss to the Charlotte Hornets two days earlier, Atlanta has been very strong in just over a week, winning five in a row, including against the Knicks, Heat and against the Mavericks and Raptors. Contest.
Meanwhile, the Bulls are on a two-game winning streak against the underdog Pistons and the Warriors, who have sat many of their key starters. That came after home losses to Oklahoma City, the Washington Wizards and Boston by eight points.
Additionally, Trae Young will be in for a big game, as he has scored in the mid-to-low 20s in four straight games after averaging just under 30 points in his first four games. (see below.)
While there’s plenty of time left in the season, that could affect playoff seeding going forward, as Atlanta is currently eighth in the East and Chicago is 10th, two games behind.
nice to be young
Performance: NBA player mainstay, Hawks’ Trae Young outscores 26.5 points
Odds/Bets: -105 ($10.50 wins $10)
book: draft king
Our opinion: As we told you, Young is in for a big game, scoring 34 and 39 in two of his past three games against the Bulls. In fact, some of the best games of his career came against Chicago, including 49-point and 42-point games.
In a crucial game between the two teams, expect Young to be in his A’s and give the Eagles a tight win.

notes: If a line or odds are negative, it takes into account the juice that must be wagered. Example: Team A has a -160 line and must wager $160 to win $100 (or $16 to win $10). Or Team B is the 5-point favorite at -110 and must wager $110 to win $100 (or $11 to win $10.)
Conversely, on the positive line, if Team C is +140 on the losing line, $100 would bring in $140 (or $10 to win $14).
