The Eastern Conference goes at it with the Chicago Bulls heading north of the boarder to take on the Toronto Raptors.
The Raptors continue to push for a #1 seed while the Bulls are once again on the outside looking in at the playoff picture.
Every game matters now and neither team can afford a loss in regards to their respective race.
Chicago was expected to be where the Raptors are right now, but instead they may be missing the post season this year.
They Bulls have bounced back and forth with teams in the bottom of the East and for the time being they are in 9th place, a full game back of the 8th spot. Chicago has continued to see losses lump together, as they’ve dropped 2 straight games now.
Chicago has battled injuries all season long and once again their two stars are back in street clothes on the bench. Jimmy Butler and Derrick Rose are sidelined and while they hope both will be back Monday, there is a chance neither could be.
Chicago has dropped 6 of their last 8 and continued to look for production from someone. Butler is schedule to have another MRI, which could lead to him missing extended time. The importance of him in this lineup is so big as he is the main offensive threat they have.
Toronto on the other hand has won 3 in a row and puts the caps on a 7 game homestand here.
The Raptors have won 5 of the 6 games thus far and find themselves still just 2.5 games back of Cleveland. They’ve remained within striking distance all season long, but have been able to jump the Cavs.
The Raptors come with wins over the Hawks and Heat recently, as they continue to dominate Eastern Conference foes. The home court advantage too has been astounding for them. Toronto has gone 26-7 SU this season at home.
DeMar DeRozan has been the ignitor on this homestand. He has averaged 30.2 points per game and finished with 38 in the team’s latest win over the Heat in overtime.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Toronto Raptors NBA Prediction:
The Bulls fate in this one relies on the injuries.
Should Rose and/or Butler play, they would certainly have a chance. Should they not though, this team just doesn’t have enough to compete.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: There’s no line yet. Check back later for a free ATS or O/U pick.
Give the advantage to the Raptors as they play extremely well at home and should be able to handle business here against a very injury plagued team.
