San Antonio Spurs vs Chicago Bulls 1/27/2020 Betting Odds
San Antonio Spurs Betting
The San Antonio Spurs are surging back into the playoff picture at the halfway point of the season. Unfortunately, the losses against the Phoenix Suns, 103-99, and the Toronto Raptors, 110-106, have somewhat ruined the good vibes surrounding the team the past three weeks. San Antonio, though, is still very much in the thick of things. As long as DeMar DeRozan continues to post big numbers, extending their playoff streak remains a big possibility for the Spurs.
Players to Watch: DeMar DeRozan (22.4 PPG, 5.6 RPG and 5.2 APG)
LaMarcus Aldridge (19.1 PPG, 7.5 RPG and 2.3 APG)
Patty Mills (11.4 PPG, 1.7 RPG and 2.0 APG)
Chicago Bulls Betting
The Chicago Bulls are salvaging Ws but they just couldn’t get a winning streak. Zach Lavine is the biggest reason why Chicago has something positive going on right now. Lavine has been the leading scorer of the Bulls over the last 11 games. On Saturday, he dropped 44 points in Chicago’s 118-106 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Players to Watch: Zach Lavine (25.3 PPG, 4.9 RPG and 3.9 APG)
Lauri Markkanen (15.0 PPG, 6.5 RPG, and 1.5 APG)
Wendell Carter Jr. (11.7 PPG, 9.9 RPG and 1.2 APG)

San Antonio Spurs vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks
The Spurs and the Bulls are both 5-5 in their last 10 games. Major sports betting shops are giving the Spurs a slight 1.5-point edge in spread betting, but oddsmakers are very much aware that the Bulls are becoming better and better in each game they play.
Moneyline: Back the Bulls at +115. Chicago is slowly gaining some identity with Lavine emerging as the bonafide go-to-guy. Expect Lavine to have a field day again in this game, leading his team to victory.
ATS: Pick the Bulls to cover the 1.5-point spread. Chicago is 11-14 ATS at home but is playing really well as of late against sub .500 teams.
TOTALs: Bet on the UNDER at 217.5 points. The Bulls’ offense is as inconsistent as their overall record. The Spurs aren’t the defensive force they were in the past but they like to slow down the pace for their big men to operate.
Score Prediction: 107 – 101 Bulls
