Bulls end brief win streak

The Chicago Bulls had their 2-game win streak come to an end on Saturday in a 114-83 loss at home to Utah. The Bulls are 21-53 overall, 12-24 on the road, 33-40-1 against the spread and 38-34-2 with the under.

Chicago is struggling on offense, averaging just 105.3 points per game while shooting 45.4 percent as a team. Defensively, the Bulls are giving up 113.2 points per game while opponents shoot 47.1 percent against them. Injuries have piled up for the Bulls as Zach LaVine and Otto Porter Jr. are both out today and Kris Dunn is doubtful. Those three combine for over 50 points per game. Lauri Markkanen is the team leader right now with 18.9 points and 9.0 rebounds per game.

Raptors losing grip for first

Toronto has dropped its last two games at home to the Thunder and the Hornets. The Raptors are now 4 games behind Milwaukee for first in the East. The Raptors are now 51-23 on the season, 39-9 at home, 32-42 against the spread and 41-31-2 with the over.

The Raptors are averaging 114.1 points per game on offense this season while shooting 47.3 percent as a team while the defense is giving up 108.8 points per game while allowing 45.1 percent shooting. Kawhi Leonard is leading the team with 27.2 points and 7.5 rebounds per game while Pascal Siakam is adding 16.8 points and 6.9 rebounds per contest.

NBA Betting Trends

Chicago

The Bulls are 9-4 against the spread in their last 13 road games, but just 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games on two days of rest.

Toronto

The Raptors are 3-8 against the spread in their last 11 conference games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 home games.

Prediction:

Toronto hasn’t been healthy often as of late, but the Raptors seem to be fully ready to go today against a Chicago team that isn’t good at full health, and the Bulls are really beat up right now. Toronto has won the two meetings with the Bulls already this season and I think they cruise to a third win today. Chicago just doesn’t have the bodies to compete tonight.

NBA Prediction: Toronto Raptors -13.5
