Why Bet on the Chicago Bulls?

The Bulls are on a roll with three straight wins to start the season. In the process, they beat the Pistons twice and scored a victory against the Pelicans in between those two games. It’s one of the best starts of the Bulls.

The team is averaging 106.3 (21st) points on 45.9 percent shooting while allowing 94 points (2nd) on 42.3 shooting in three games. The Bulls are shooting 41.6 percent from the three-point line and hit 83.1 percent of their free throws. Recent additions to the roster make the Bulls’ offense more competent. Zach LaVine averages 26.7 points and 4.7 assists per game while DeMar DeRozan adds more punch to the side with an average of 21.3 points and 6.3 rebounds per game.

Defensively, the team allows 30.6 percent shooting from deep and grabs 45.3 rebounds per game. As for turnovers, the Bulls’ defense forces 19.0 turnovers per game, which opens up more scoring opportunities for the side. Overall, the team produces numbers that show production on both ends of the court.

Why Bet on the Toronto Raptors?

The Raptors are struggling to find traction this season. The team is only three games into the season, there’s still time to adjust and build more momentum in the following weeks. It was a shaky start for the team after losing their opener to the Wizards, followed by a victory against the Boston Celtics. In their most recent contest, the Raptors fell in the hands of the Mavericks.

The Raptors averaged 97.7 points (26th) in their last three games. There’s a lack of urgency on the offensive side. The team records a 42.6 effective field goal percentage (29th) and shoots 26.4 percent from the three-point line.

Scottie Barnes is the top scorer of the team, as he is averaging 18 points and 1.7 assists per game. OG Anuoby is right behind him with 16 points and 6.3 rebounds.

But, the team tries to make up for it on the defensive end. The Raptors average 94.7 opponent points per game (4th) and 18.7 opponent turnovers per game (5th). Expect Nick Nurse and company to keep defense tight when they take on the Bulls on Monday.

Bulls vs. Raptors Expert Betting Prediction

A positive preseason and a good start in the first week give the Bulls the slight advantage here. We see a team that enjoys playing and solid team chemistry. The Bulls are a dangerous team and should get better as the weeks go by and they enter the game with a slight advantage.

Meanwhile, the Raptors struggle to find their footing. They could improve eventually, but not in recent games. Nevertheless, there’s a good chance that the 2019 champions keep the scoreline close and cover the spread. A win is not impossible with the help of their fans, but they have to be on full throttle to overcome this impressive Bulls squad.
