Raptors are a Terrible Bet vs Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have had a season to forget this year, but Monday presents a matchup against a team they've traditionally dominated: the Toronto Raptors. The Bulls can sweep the season series with a win tonight, however their excellent play against the Dinos goes back much further. Chicago is 8-0 SU and ATS in their last eight versus Canada’s lone NBA club.

Shark Bites
  • The Bulls are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games against teams with winning records.
  • The Raptors are 15-1 SU in their last 16 games at home.
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Raptors' last seven games.

Thanks to a long list of injuries, the Bulls have been in a massive free fall over the past few months. Star shooting guard Jimmy Butler is expected to return tonight, which would give the depleted squad a huge shot in the arm. Butler is averaging 22.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game in the 2015-16 campaign.

OVER bettors love seeing these Eastern Conference foes collide, as each of the previous six meetings between the Bulls and Raptors have resulted in cashed OVER bets.

Chicago, who hasn’t lost in Toronto since April of 2013, will be looking to avoid their first nine-game road skid since the 2003-04 season.
