Chicago Bulls Betting
The Bulls’ postseason dream this season is slowly fading away after yet another disappointing loss. The Bulls are among the worst shooting team in the NBA at 43.1 percent from the field. Yet, they always seem to find their bearings whenever they face the Pistons. In Chicago’s 119-107 win last December 21, Zach Lavine scored 33 points on 9-for-15 shooting, while Coby White added 19 off the bench.
Players to watch: Zach LaVine (23.9 PPG, 4.6 RPG, 4.0 APG)
Lauri Markkanen (15.4 PPG, 6.6 RPG, 1.6 APG)
Wendell Carter, Jr. (11.7 PPG, 9.9 RPG, 1.2 APG)
Detroit Pistons Betting
The Pistons absorbed a big blow in the gut after learning that Blake Griffin will be out probably for the remainder of the season following knee surgery. Without Griffin, Detroit could be a big seller in the trade market in the coming weeks. Andre Drummond’s name has been floating around, while Derrick Rose and Markieff Morris could be on the move as well. As for Friday’s ballgame against the Bulls, the Pistons will continue to heavily lean on Drummond and Rose to finally end their losing spell against Chicago.
Players to watch: Andre Drummond (17.5 PPG, 16.0 RPG, 2.7 APG)
Derrick Rose (17.5 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 5.8 APG)
Langston Galloway (10.7 PPG, 2.2 RPG, 1.4 APG)

Chicago Bulls vs Detroit Pistons Betting Picks
The Bulls-Pistons regular-season series is quite tricky for NBA parlay and NBA Moneyline bettors. While it’s true Chicago has the Pistons’ numbers in the first three games, a six-game losing skid should be a worrisome sign that things aren’t going well for Chicago. Will the Pistons finally get the breakthrough win this time around?
Moneyline: The Bulls opened at +140 as the underdogs in the match. The Pistons are coming off a tough 115-112 overtime loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers and might not be a solid pick at -160. My money is on the Bulls scoring a sweep over the Pistons largely because they are the healthier team coming into the game.
ATS: By way of an upset win, The Bulls will cover the spread and improve their ATS card to 19-19-1 his season.
TOTALs: I pick OVER. I expect the total score of this game to surpass 217 points. The Bulls have surpassed the century mark in each of the three wins vs. the Pistons this season. The Pistons also scored at least 110 points in their home-and-away series vs. the Cavaliers recently.
Score Prediction: 112 -108 Bulls
