Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls have 19 games left this season and want to make the most out of it. Injuries to key players are not helping, meaning coach Jim Boylen will turn to the ones available. Lauri Markkanen will need to step up on offense and get some help from Coby White. At 21-42, the Bulls could still catch the playoff bus if they string up wins starting now.
