Toronto rolls into town searching for an answer to their five-game losing streak, while Chicago snapped a two-game losing streak with a big win Sunday night at Portland.
Join me as I break this one down and share my best bets for Raptors vs Bulls on Tuesday, January 30.
Raptors vs. Bulls Best Bets
Please remember the numbers and betting odds might be different than they are at the time of publishing. Always remember to line shop to get the best number at the best odds across the Illinois sportsbooks.
Bulls -1.5 (-110) at DraftKings
The Bulls are down a couple of pretty good players, but they are 4-1-0 ATS over their last five with a 14-10 record at United Center. Chicago guard DeMar DeRozan has scored 20+ in four of the Bull’s last five, and reserve center Andre Drummond has done a fine job on both ends of the floor recently for Chicago.
Toronto has injury concerns. R.J. Barrett and Immanuel Quickley have both missed time due to injury and are questionable for Tuesday. Toronto was skidding before their missing time and is just 1-9 over their last 10.
The Raps are 1-4-0 ATS over their previous five and 4-6-0 ATS over their last 10. Toronto has allowed 116 or more in four of their last five, and we’ll go with the Bulls to cover the -1.5 (-110) at DraftKings Illinois.
Chicago Bulls ML (-125 at DraftKings)
The Bulls win basketball games at United Center, and -125 is a decent price for this matchup. I expect DeRozan to continue his strong play against a Toronto team with no incentive to win or play any defense. Chicago is still in playoff contention, and I expect them to play hard without LaVine in the lineup.
The Bulls are 4-1 at home over their last five, and the reeling Raps and their 6-17 away record should be a layup Tuesday night for the Bulls. Take Chicago to win (-125) at DraftKings.
