Bet Tonight's NBA Action

Who the Public Likes: Chicago. As of Wednesday afternoon, 54 percent of public bets have come in on the visiting Bulls.

Injury Report: Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic battling a lower leg strain and is questionable for tonight. Lauri Markkanen is dealing with a personal matter and is out tonight. Cameron Payne is recovering from foot surgery and is out until early February. Kris Dunn is out indefinitely with a brain injury. For the Trail Blazers, CJ Wilcox is out indefinitely as he is rehabbing a knee injury.

Who the Trends Like: Chicago is 4-9 ATS in the last 13 meetings. The Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last four games playing on two days of rest. Portland is 5-0-1 ATS in its last six games overall.

Who We Like: Portland won the first meeting this season on New Year's Day, downing host Chicago 124-120 in overtime. The Bulls have surrendered at least 108 points in six of their last seven games and are one of the worst defensive teams in the NBA. Expect Damian Lillard and company to have their way offensively tonight. While Portland is a good defensive team, the pace the Bulls play at should allow them to get their fair share of points as well. I'm taking the over tonight.
