Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls are currently placed second in the NBA Eastern Conference with their record of 39-22 and they trail the Miami Heat by just only one game. They are coming from a tough loss against the streaking Memphis Grizzlies, 110-116, and if they win this matchup, they can reclaim the best record in the East. During their loss against the Grizzlies, DeMar DeRozan continued to lead the charge with 31 points, seven rebounds and three assists while also being in the discussion for league MVP. Zach Lavin also had a good game doing 28 points but this team really misses the services of Lonzo Ball and Alex Caruso.
