These teams began their season in the same location with the Raptors spanking the Bulls 117-100. Granted the Bulls were missing Bobby Portis who could potentially return this evening.
Portis was serving an eight game suspension for quite literally breaking teammate Nikola Mirotic’s face.
Kyle Lowry who was ejected Sunday for telling an official he missed a call will undoubtedly be focused on making amends for that oust and his teams subsequent loss to the Wizards.
Last season, the Bulls took the series 2-1 and also hold the all-time edge with a 48-34 win margin.
Through eight games the Bulls haven’t had much to boast about with a mere two victories. Yet, Chicago has looked slightly better in their last two outings registering a win over the Magic and pushing the Pelicans to overtime before succumbing.
Despite the potential return of Portis the Bulls are injury riddled and will be without the services of Zach LaVine (knee), Mirotic (face), Cameron Payne (foot) and David Nwaba (ankle).
Rookie Lauri Markkanen continues his impressive introductory professional season leading the Bulls in both scoring (16.2) and rebounding (9.0). When the teams met earlier this season the rookie had a solid debut with 17 points, 8 rebounds and a block.
Despite ranking 30th in the league offensively, the Bulls surprisingly boast the sixth best defense. Unfortunately, the Bulls porous offense equates to the 28th ranked minus -9.3 net differential.
This early in the season long road trips can be debilitating. Toronto experienced this to the nth degree having just returned from a six game opposite coast road trip, got one day off and had to face the Wizards.
To put this heinous schedule in perspective only five teams were relatively comparable. Atlanta (0 West) and Phoenix (3 East) had 5-game trips while the Spurs, Nuggets and Wizards each had four game opposite coast trips,
Toronto battled injury throughout the long trip with Jonas Valanciunas (ankle), Lucas Nogueira (ankle), C.J. Miles (illness) and Serge Ibaka (knee) all missing games.
Kyle Lowry is playing through a back injury and along with Ibaka and Miles are experiencing dips in their perimeter efficiency no doubt due to being hobbled.
To that end, teams seemingly have the book on this deficiency and are therefore slacking off the team and packing the paint.
The Raptors bench has been a pleasant surprise although Dwane Casey needed to utilize several reserves to compensate for the injured players. Jakob Poeltl and Pascal Siakam were particularly strong in their minutes and the rookie OG Anunoby continues to impress especially on defense.
Toronto remains top ten in offense (8), defense (8) and net differential (7).
NBA Betting Trends:
- Bulls are 8-2 in their last 10 head to head matchups
- Over is 12-4 in Toronto’s last 16 home games
- Bulls are 9-1 ATS in their last 10 head to head matchups
- Over Under is 9-1 in team’s last 10 head to head matchups
Free Chicago Bulls vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
Despite the Bulls recent dominance, the tide has shifted plus it’s rare for the Raptors to have consecutive bad outings. Prior to Lowry’s ejection he played a mere 12 minutes.
Therefore, expect the bulldog to spearhead a quick start as he captains the squad back into the win column.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Raptors -11
During the 3-3 road trip the Raptors had arguably one bad game in Denver. They responded with their most complete and impressive win the next game in Utah. Home cooking pays dividends and Toronto produces a similar effort to opening night capturing the win.
