Chicago Bulls vs Toronto Raptors: Betting Tips, Prediction & Betting Odds

Zach LaVine’s return has sparked a bit of a run by the Chicago Bulls who are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games. They’ll conclude a mini 3-game road trip tonight in Canada as they take on the Toronto Raptors, a team they’ve played really well against in recent meetings. Chicago is 9-4 SU in the last 13 games head-to-head, combine that with the fact that Toronto is playing on a 2nd night of a back-to-back and you have the Bulls as 2.5-point favorites here. This team is 11-7 SU in games played when they’re the favorite, however the road form isn’t exactly encouraging at 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games. At the Scotiabank Arena they’ve covered the spread only once in 5 visits. One key stat to consider before betting on this game is the Raptors three-point defense – they’re allowing teams to shoot 38.5% from downtown this season, so I doubt we’ll see the Bulls score only 9 threes in this game like they did in the loss to Cleveland the other day.

Toronto made headlines once again as they traded away the last remaining piece of the 2019 championship team Pascal Siakam. The experienced wingman was shipped to Indiana in exchange for picks and Bruce Brown Jr., in an effort to clear cap space but also shake things up for a team that’s just 16-25 SU this season. It definitely worked last night as Toronto destroyed Miami 121-97 to go back to .500 in home games at 10-10 SU. And this is where the issue lies ahead of tonight’s game. The Raptors have played in this scenario 7 times this season have just 2 wins, losing even to the likes of Detroit which is the worst team in the NBA. Since acquiring him from New York, R.J. Barrett has put up solid numbers, but it might take some time for this team and it’s new players to gel together.

Chicago Bulls Point Spread Prediction

Chicago Bulls -2.5 Point Spread is available at -110 odds at the time of publishing.

I would normally lean towards the Raptors here, but the circumstances are working in the Bulls’ favor. Former Raptor DeMar DeRozan is always extra motivated against the team that traded him away and went on to win a title after that. I expect him to show up big time here and the Bulls to cover the spread.

Bulls vs Raptors Total Points Prediction: Under 224.5

Under 224.5 Total Points is available at -110 odds at time of publishing.

Over their last 10 games, the Raptors have tried out a different style of play, they’re 8th in pace and 8th in offensive rating during that stretch, but that hasn’t yielded as many wins as they’ve hoped it would. Chicago, on the other hand, hasn’t really changed all that much since the beginning of the season. They’re only 23rd in pace in their last 10, averaging just 97.1 possessions per game, plus they’re all the way down in 24th in offensive rating which isn’t all that spectacular. Games between these two teams are defensive battles more often than not, the last 5 of 7 meetings have gone under the total and we’re seeing an average of just 217.1 points per game in the last 10 meetings. Chicago has a record of 1-9 on the O/U in their last 10 games vs Eastern Conference opponents, we just saw their game at Cleveland produce only 200 points total. The projected total of 224.5 points seems a bit high for this game, so I’ll be backing the under.
