NBA Preview: Raptors at Bulls
Raptors Face Bulls and Old Teammate DeRozan Tonight
The Chicago Bulls (29-17) host the Toronto Raptors (23-22) in a game that's far more critical to the struggling Canadians. Currently teetering at the .500 mark, Toronto hold the 8th seed in the East, with Boston, Washington, and New York breathing down their necks.
The Bulls have won four straight games against the Raptors to take a 52-44 lead in the all-time series. Chicago has been particularly tough at home this season, going 16-6. But they have also lost 7 of their last 10 games overall.
The game starts at 8 pm ET. The Bulls are laying -4 with an O/U listed at 219.
WHAT ARE THE SPREADS EXPERTS RECOMMENDING?
This looks like an excellent spot to take the dog with the points, since Raptors could catch Bulls in a flat spot tonight, even if ex-teammate DeRozan is back in the lineup for Chicago (he's missed the last three games). The Raptors 8-5 record since the new year began is also reason for optimism.
