January Showers
After opening the season 12-18 SU and 11-19 ATS in all games thru December 31st this season, the Chicago Bulls welcomed the New Year in style, going 11-4 SU and 9-5-1 ATS in games during January.
With the blue collar Bulls ranking in the Top 5 in the league in team defense and rebound margin, look for them to improve on an already stellar 6-3 SU mark in games with same season loss revenge in their forward movement.
Stat of The Week
Illinois is 18-0 SU at home in games versus Iowa in which the Illini own a winning record.
