Bulls-Knicks Christmas Day Game

The Bulls-Knicks Christmas Day game line has been released by our good friends at Bookmaker.com.  This is the first of a blockbuster series of five games being played Christmas Day and starts at 12 pm EST.  It was too early to determine whether the spread would move prior to game time as the line had only just been posted. 

The Knicks opened as 1.5 point favorites at home against the Bulls. 

The Bulls have won 4 of the last 6 in this series. 

The online sportsbooks were banking on a 30 percent plus ratings boost across the board for the NBA and a slate of marquee games taking place on Christmas Day to help generate additional revenue.
