The Toronto Raptors continue to make a push in the Eastern Conference and will take their strong play of late to the Windy City to meet the Chicago Bulls, who have proven themselves to be a contender this year. Fred VanVleet and Scottie Barnes are questionable to play for the Raptors, while Nikola Vucevic is probable for the Bulls.
The Bulls are 4-point favorites per DraftKings Sportsbook, with the total set at 219. If VanVleet and Barnes play, expect this line to shift slightly towards Toronto.
Pick ATS: Bulls -4 (-105)
Chicago has most of its rotation intact outside of Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and Derrick Jones Jr. The Bulls are a strong team at home and the Raptors might be down key players. With DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine healthy, it’s hard to bet against the Bulls here.
Over/Under: Under 219 (-110)
Over the last 10 games, the Bulls rank 20th in the league in points per game. The Raptors are 26th in that same span. Chicago is getting back into a rhythm offensively, so there could be some scoring from the Bulls. However, it’s hard to expect Toronto to match Chicago’s firepower especially if VanVleet and Barnes don’t play.
