The Chicago Bulls look to keep the ball rolling after winning six of their last eight games. The Chicago Bulls are averaging 105.3 points on 44.3 percent shooting and allowing 99 points on 44 percent shooting. Jimmy Butler is averaging 25.8 points and 6.6 rebounds while Dwyane Wade is averaging 18.9 points and 2.8 assists.

The Lakers are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games playing on 0 days rest and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 road games. The Bulls are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games playing on 3 or more days rest and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 Wednesday games. The Lakers are 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Chicago and 1-5 ATS in the last 6 meetings overall.
The Lakers are still without three key players and are coming off a Tuesday loss to the New Orleans Pelicans in which they shot just 42.5 percent from the field and made five threes. Without Young and Russell on the floor, scoring will be an issue for the Lakers. The Bulls are playing some of their best ball of the season and will be fresh considering they haven't played since Friday. Give me the home team by double digits.
