Two beautiful situations of odds. Although the raptors are having their issues this year they have had a consistency of doing well as an underdog whereas the bulls when needing to perform in the role as a favorite have typically not. The odds of bulls winning three in a row is incredibly low and furthermore the odds of them beating a third team that has had their number is incredibly low. Before the bulls beat the nets and pacers they were 1/9 for the last ten meetings against each team and now are facing the raptors whom also have that distinction against the bulls. Personnel wise the raptors have the defenders to slow down bulls and capitalize on their frequent mistakes which the pacers were not able to. The exclusion of Lowry and Van Fleet should not be an issue since Anuoby and Siakim, both whom did not play in the last meeting, are the main keys to this matchup. 

 

The clippers catching a fatigued suns and only getting 5 is just the right play to make. The last meeting Clippers defeated suns by 5 on the dot and the odds of that happening again are incredibly low.. one may say well Suns can beat the spread.... coming off an overtime victory and on a back to back the odds are incredibly low for the suns to be able to hang around enough to lose via 1-4 points. Clippers -5.5..-5 or -6 are all good in this spot.

Good luck on your picks, but because the last meeting was decided by 5 doesn't make the chance this meeting was decided by 5 any more or less likely

it does lol. capped games for a long time now man. Game won't be won by 5 on the dot again or less than 5. Either suns win, which is unlikely due to the overtime and stretch they are in or clippers cover.

This is not the same Bulls squad. The Bulls already beat the Raptors. Lowry is out and he had 20 and 8 in the most recent loss to the Bulls. Powell had 32 and he’s in Portland now. Vuc is now with the Bulls and is an inside and outside threat. If you’ve paid attention to the Raptors they haven’t defended the perimeter well lately and the Bulls could exploit that tonight. Bulls are stronger and have the length. Travel factor does play here but it doesn’t outweigh all those things I pointed out. The Bulls come off a game with 6 players in double figures and had 9 players in double figures in the last meeting verse Toronto. The Raptors received Hood and Trent in return for Powell and Hood is out. Vanvleet is out. Bembry is now suspended. Trent, Boucher, and Siakam aren’t outshining anyone on the Bulls quite honestly IMO. You may want to think this one over. Bulls ML is definitely the play of the day for me. Winning 3 in a row isn’t impossible and if you look at the Bulls schedule they might be winning more than 3 in a row this month. No way Bulls lose this game after taking over the 10th spot in the east. Bulls will make the playoffs and are playing for the moment while the Raptors are looking more and more like their gearing towards the future.

Raptors don't need Lowry or Van Fleet to beat bulls.. them being absent only frees up more time for Stanley and other defenders off the bench. That win that you are referring to is when Anuoby and Siakim did not play as well as Baynes of course. The secret in this game lies in the defense. Bulls are still sloppy and turnover the ball alot. They did the same against Pacers however coach left his second unit in too long and game got out of hand. The pacers could not score on the opportunities that the Bulls gave. You sound very insane saying "no way" the bulls lose this game. The same bulls team that lost to golden state.. the same bulls team that lose to cavs without their star players... the same bulls team that got beat by 22 by philly without their stars.. bulls consistently do not cash as a relied upon favorite even from a betting standpoint. Good luck with your pick.

Also it's a revenge game for raptors as well. I would strongly suggest you to bet Clippers spread instead of bulls and just pass if you don't even have the conviction to bet a spread of 4 in this matchup. Again.. good luck with your pick. I doubt Lavine and Cody both play as well.... but even then I still don't see bulls winning.

Rotations for Raptors will be quite different as well which will allow them to be more effective. Flynn did not play the first meeting.... as I was saying... more defenders in and out of rotation and different lineup all together then the first meeting. Bemby not playing is an advantage for the raptors... since he's not really that great to begin with and takes wasted shots.. Boucher whom dropped 17 on them will now be starting.. Van Fleet and Lowry being out makes raptoprs not as undersized at the one and two.. and Trent Jr. will get buckets.

 Bembry not playing isn’t an advantage lol.  The team has no backup pg tonight and he’s a playmaker he doesn’t force shots

Ok so maybe the Bulls squeeze out a victory but don’t cover. I think you’re reasoning makes sense. This is a long trip for Chicago. However Flynn is most likely running the offense tonight for the Raptors and I’m not sure I’ve seen him run the show before. But that’s a mismatch for the Bulls to exploit most likely. And who comes in behind him?

Yawn. Bembry is not good. Im not going to argue about what I know. Bulls lose just come back here and give props as I will do to you if otherwise. I went through this same exact thing with people yapping Gonzaga would win. Guys don't think games through.

 Idc either way I’m a raptor fan.  He’s a solid rotation piece on any team.

The Raptors bench is absolutely awful. One of the worst in the NBA without Lowry and Van Vleet in the starting lineup.

yawn... bench is different based on the matchup. As I stated above.. the rotations will do them favors for this matchup and they will win. Better defense in and out... Vanfleet and Lowry are undersized guards that shoot alot of jumpshots... it's all about the matchup. Bulls don't play good defense therefore it will allow for more scoring on the offensive end and they will capitalize off of their turnovers.

If Bulls score 120 they won’t need defense. That needs to be factored in. I don’t see Boucher stopping Vuc. Siakam might have his way but will they get enough from an offensive standpoint. I honestly don’t think so.
