The Bulls have covered 5 of the last 6-games versus the Jazz. These two teams have seen just 4 of their last 14 meetings go over the total.</p> [/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":248156, "sportsbooksIds":[43], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/] <p style="text-align:left" align="center"><b>It’s not Rosie in Chicago</b></p> <p style="text-align:left"><img style="font-size:1em" src="/picks-pictures/mo-williams-utah-2013-apjpg-28c70c8bb57aa4db.jpg" class="imgSelectedPicture article-image" alt="Image preview" id="ctl00_head_ArticleAdministrator_picturePreview_imgSelectedPicture" />The Chicago Bulls received a devastating blow to their chances for success this year, when Derek Rose was lost for the season. <a target="_blank" title="the latest NBA Injuries of the season" href="/nba-basketball/injuries/">Rose tore the meniscus in his right knee in last Friday’s 98-95 loss at Portland</a>. In their first full game without Rose in the lineup, the Bulls were hammered by the Los Angeles Clippers on the road yesterday 121-82. After holding 9 of their first 11 opponents to 97-points or less they were torched a by a red-hot shooting Clippers squad who shot 58.5% from the field. This will be the 4<sup>th</sup> of a 6-game in 10 day road trip. The Bulls have lost the first 3-games of the trip, and are currently a dismal 1-6 on the road. This will also be the Bulls 4<sup>th</sup> game in the last 5 days.</p> <p style="text-align:left" align="center"><b>Stop all this Losing Jazz</b></p> <p style="text-align:left">The Utah Jazz is off to a nightmarish start to the season losing 14 of their first 15-games. The crux of the problems can be easily identified, as they’ve been anemic offensively. They’re dead last in the NBA averaging a paltry 88.5 points per game. They’re next to last in the league in both free throw percentage, and three-point shooting. The Jazz have surpassed the century scoring mark just once this season, and that came in their lone win of the season 111-105 versus New Orleans. They’ve scored 93-points or less in 13 of their first 15-games. This will be Utah’s 3<sup>rd</sup> game in the last 4 days. Utah comes off yesterday’s 95-73 blowout loss at Oklahoma City.</p> <p style="text-align:center"><em>Make sure to check out SBRs:</em></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em><a target="_blank" title="Monday NBA Picks of the Day" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/monday-nba-picks-the-day-a-35249/">Monday NBA Picks of the Day</a></em></p> <p style="text-align:center"><em><a target="_blank" title="Suns vs. Heat NBA Picks" href="/nba-basketball/free-picks/suns-vs-heat-nba-picks-a-35241/">Suns vs. Heat NBA Picks</a></em></p> <p style="text-align:left" align="center"><b>NBA Super System</b></p> <p style="text-align:left">Any underdog that’s shooting 43% or worse from the field on the season, versus a team that allowed their previous opponent to shoot 55% or better from the field is 85-45 ATS (65.4%) since the beginning of the 1996-1997 year. <a target="_blank" title="we give your Free NBA picks &amp; betting odds" href="/nba-basketball/">Take the OVER for your NBA picks</a>.</p> <p style="text-align:left"><b>NBA Pick</b><b>: </b>Jazz +4.5 over the Bulls</p>
