Chicago Bulls Betting

The Chicago Bulls are having a hard time finding some positives in this NBA season as they have won only twice in the last ten games. In their last four, they split their wins and losses as they took victories over the Washington Wizards and Dallas Mavericks. In their last match, the Bulls held on their own as they spoiled Luka Doncic’s return from a short-term injury. Rookie Coby White showed that he has a lot of upside in his game as he came off the bench with 19 points, six rebounds and five assists. Otto Porter did 18 points while Denzel Valentine added 17 points. It was a moral victory as the Bulls scored a win without Zach LaVine.
