The Raptors return home for a one-game homestand Tuesday as they host the DeMar DeRozan and the Chicago Bulls. Toronto is a solid favourite on the NBA odds.

Bulls vs. Raptors NBA Betting Odds

Monday concludes the regular-season series between the teams, although they could meet in the Eastern Conference play-in tournament with Toronto currently ninth in the East and Chicago 11th. They split the first two meetings in a home-and-home on Nov. 6-7, each winning at home.

Fred VanVleet averaged 28.5 points and 7.5 assists in the two, OG Anunoby 17.5 points and 5.0 rebounds, and Gary Trent Jr. 15.5 points. Pascal Siakam missed both. Zach LaVine played one of the two and had 30 points. Nikola Vucevic averaged 16.5 points and 12.5 rebounds in the two, and former Raptor DeMar DeRozan just 14.5 points. Vucevic has five straight double-doubles vs. the Raptors.

Chicago leads the all-time series 55-46 and is 25-25 as the road team. The Raptors are 3-7 ATS in the past 10 meetings.

Chicago Bulls

The Bulls seem energized by the free-agent signing of guard Patrick Beverley, a Chicago native, after he was bought out by the Orlando Magic as the team is 2-0 in his two games (both blowout wins) following a 102-82 home win over Washington on Sunday. DeRozan had 29 points and LaVine 27. Beverley doesn’t really fill the stat sheet, but he’s a bulldog who brings intensity and good defence.

Coach Billy Donovan has been starting Beverley and bringing former No. 4 overall pick Patrick Williams off the bench. Backup guard and one-time Raptor Goran Dragic has missed the past four with left knee soreness. Bulls GM Marc Eversley served as the Raptors Assistant GM from 2006-13.

Toronto Raptors

Playing a second road game in about 24 hours, the Raptors were no match for the Cavs in Cleveland on Sunday, losing 118-93. The Raptors, now 14-25 this season against teams with .500 records or better, were outscored in every quarter and shot just 38.7 per cent from the field. Pascal Siakam had 25 points to extend his streak of games with at least 25 to seven straight. He and Vince Carter hold the team record with eight. Gary Trent Jr. was just 2-for-13 for seven points. OG Anunoby also had seven. The only bright spot? Coach Nick Nurse emptied the bench so no one played heavy minutes. Second-leading scorer Fred VanVleet missed his third straight game after the birth of his third child.
