NBA FREE PICK: Charlotte Bobcats +12

Chicago vs. Charlotte, 04/18/2012 19:00
Point Spread: +12/-102 Charlotte

NBA FREE PICK: Charlotte Bobcats +12

I believe this is one of the few times where its worth taking a shot on the Bobcats to cover the spread. Chicago is expected to be without Luol Deng (doubtfull) and possibly Derrick Rose (questionable). While I still think the Bulls have enough talent to win the game without those two, I think the Bobcats are going to come to play tonight.

Charlotte needs to win one of their final six games to avoid finishing the season with the worst winning percentage in NBA history. No player wants to be associated with that label. Getting the Bulls without their two best players, should light a fire under Charlotte that they could win this game.

With a huge game against the Heat on the schedule for tomorrow, I expect the Bulls to do just enough to win this game. They aren't going to want to waste any energy on a team like the Bobcats. Chicago is just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games as a favorite of 11.0 or greater. BET CHARLOTTE!
