Chicago Bulls Vs. Toronto Raptors Odds, October 25, 7:30 PM EST, NBC
- Moneyline: Bulls -145, Raptors +125
- Spread: Bulls -3.0
- Totals: O/U 212.5
The Bulls have two 20 PPG scorers in their starting five this season with Zach LaVine averaging 26.7 PPG off of 51.9% shooting from the field and DeMar DeRozan averaging 21.3 PPG off of 43.6% shots.
Chicago is also third in the league in 3-point shooting at 41.6%. LaVine shoots 45% from behind the arc and point guard Lonzo Ball is shooting 38.1% from the 3.
Meanwhile, the Raptors have no 20 PPG scorers on their team and have the second worse 3-point percentage in the league with 26.4% from behind the arc.
The Raptors are also playing without injured Pascal Siakam who is arguably the team’s best player now that Kyle Lowry is on the Miami Heat.
The Bulls May Cover
The Raptors’ offensive struggles and the Bulls’ cohesive efficiency lends to NBA betting fans taking the Bulls to cover the 3-point spread. The Bulls have covered in every game this season and the Raptors have failed to cover in their two losses.
Taking the Bulls to cover -3.0 nets a more profitable return at (-115) than if one were to simply take the moneyline. Unless this is a breakout game for Toronto, the Bulls should easily be able to cover such a low spread.
Things tip-off tonight at 7:30 PM EST Monday. NBA gamblers can catch the game on NBC.
