The Chicago Bulls (21-24) are set to host the Atlanta Hawks (24-23) at the United Center in one of seven NBA matchups slated for Monday, Jan. 23.

In a campaign filled with highs and lows, the Bulls are one step closer to a .500 record following Thursday's 126-108 win over the Detroit Pistons. Meanwhile, the Hawks' winning streak came to an end at five games with a 122-118 loss to the Charlotte Hornets over the weekend.

Can the Bulls send their fans home happy with a third consecutive victory? Or will the Hawks prove that their latest loss was just a one-off experience?

Bulls vs. Hawks Prediction & Pick

The Bulls and Hawks have been evenly matched so far this season. They've already split their first two meetings, each picking up their respective victory by one possession. However, those two meetings took place in Atlanta, whereas this one is at the United Center, where Chicago is 5-2 straight up in its last seven home games.

While the Hawks have won four straight road games, they've also lost four of their last five trips to the 'Windy City.' Even worse, they have a minus-13.4 scoring margin while averaging 16.6 turnovers in those games.

The Hawks have been playing fantastic lately, but the Bulls clearly turn things up whenever they're at home. Look for another close-fought matchup with Chicago emerging as the victor.

Final Score Prediction: Bulls: 121 | Hawks: 119

Bulls vs. Hawks Best Bet

Regardless of which team wins, I expect a high-scoring affair. For starters, the over is 4-1 in the Hawks' last five games while being 6-2 in the Bulls' last eight at home. Furthermore, the over has been hit in four of the last six Chicago-Atlanta matchups, averaging 238.8 points in those meetings.

With the Hawks averaging 129.0 points in their last three games and the Bulls going scoring 126-plus in back-to-back wins, there shouldn't be any shortage of offense tonight.

Bet: Over 239 Points (-110)
