NBA Betting Trends

Toronto

The Raptors are 4-0 ATS in their last four games versus the Central Division. Toronto is 4-1 ATS in its last four road games.

Chicago

The Bulls are 6-22 ATS in their last 28 home games. Chicago is 0-5 ATS in its last five games versus the Atlantic Division.

Prediction:

There is no real rest advantage aside from Toronto having to travel a little longer to reach Chicago. The Raptors have the better team and Siakam is making his definitive star turn. With so many new pieces fitting in for the Bulls, they are going to have their ups and downs. Tonight's opponent is much tougher than the Grizzlies and I like Toronto to take care of business tonight as the road favorites.
