Cavs vs. Bulls Game 4 Betting Line, DFS Picks: Chicago a 2 Point Home Dog

The Cavs vs. Bulls Game 4 overnight betting line had Chicago as a +1.5 to +2 home underdog and subject to change throughout the morning and early afternoon hours leading up to this critical game.

Power forward Pau Gasol departed Game 3 with a left hamstring injury and is questionable for Sunday’s game.  The Bulls are in a position to open up a 3-1 lead in this playoffs series.  Should Chicago advance, they would knock off a Cavaliers team that entered the 2014-2015 regular NBA season as odds-on favorites to win the Championship.

Make no mistake about it, Gasol’s presence will be needed for Chicago to advance.  This, however, could be offset by Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving dealing with a foot injury.

Cleveland last overcame a 2-1 series deficit in the 2007 East finals, while Chicago hasn't squandered a 2-1 lead since the first round in 2005.

The Bulls have covered in seven of their last ten games overall. 

For the daily fantasy sports player, Lebron James, Derrick Rose and Jimmy Butler each need to be on your radar.

James had 14 assists in Game 3 to move into fourth place on the NBA’s all-time playoff list with 1,073.  That was in addition to the 27 points scored and 8 rebounds along with one each of a steal and block.  That’s close to 60 fantasy points, well over his value.

Rose accumulated 30 points, 7 each of rebounds and assists along with one each of a block and steal to garner over 50 fantasy points.

Butler contributed 20 points ,8 rebounds and 2 assists to go along with 5 steals and a block. 

With Irving’s injury, whether playing or not, expect these two players to contribute more in terms of minutes.
