2017-2018 NBA Previews – Bulls Odds
Looking for 2017 Chicago Bulls Predictions? We’ve got your back. The Chicago Bulls made the playoffs last year as an eight seed, and if it wasn’t for an injury to Rajon Rondo they probably would have beat the Boston Celtics in the first round. Once the season was over though they went into full rebuild mode, and expect to be that way for a couple of seasons.

They traded away Jimmy Butler away for Zach LaVine, and even if LaVine turns out to be a star, it seems the Wolves won that trade. They also let Rajon Rondo walk, and they bought out Dwayne Wade who has since signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
This team is probably in full tank mode this year, and if they don’t get a top three pick in next years draft that would be a shock.
Chicago Bulls Strengths:
The strengths of this team might be limited this year, but they still have a few strengths that if nothing else should make this team exciting to watch.
The first strength on this team is Zach LaVine. He is a budding superstar as long as he comes back from his ACL injury ok.
He developed a jump shot that was deadly the last year with the Wolves, and if he can continue to shoot from beyond the arc he is going to turn into more then just a dunker.
He also has the personality that the people of Chicago should like. He is a must see attraction when he goes up for a dunk and fans might come out just to see him.
Another strength for this years team should be on the defensive end. Last year they were very good defensively and even with them missing Jimmy Butler who was a great defender this team should still be good on that side of the ball.
Another strength of this team is they aren’t going to have many expectations placed on them so the development of their young guys shouldn’t be rushed.
This team is going to have games where they look really bad, and then in other games fans will be able to see a glimpse of the future and what can be if the team just gets a few more pieces.
The other big positive for this team is that their success isn’t going to be measured in wins and losses, and it will be measured in the steps forward or backward that they take on the court.
Chicago Bulls Weaknesses:
For the Bulls they have a lot of weaknesses, and it starts in the front office. They have done a terrible job at building this team and has landed them here in the middle of this rebuild.
But on the court the biggest weakness has to do with talent. They don’t have a lot of guys that are going to wow you on a nightly basis.
They have a lot of guys that should be role players being asked to have a lot bigger role on this team because of the lack of talent and depth.
They are also probably going to have issues scoring points. Last year they struggled doing that and they only got worse offensively this off season.
Chicago Bulls Betting Prediction: 20-62
Vegas has set the over/under at 21.5 for this team which is the lowest over/under in the NBA. This team is going to have a lot of growing pains and although they do play in the Eastern Conference, which is the worse conference it’s not going to help in terms of wins and losses.
I think this team will be the underdogs in about every game, and they won’t win many of them. They will finish the season with 20 wins, and miss the playoffs.
