The Chicago Bulls invade the Scotiabank Arena take battle the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in fine form as they’ve won four of their last seven games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after having their two-game win streak snapped by the Celtics in a 123-119 road loss on Friday. DeMar DeRozan led the way with 46 points and five assists on 13 of 23 shooting, Nikola Vucevic added 24 points with 12 rebounds on 10 of 14 shooting while Zach LaVine chipped in with 16 points. As a team, the Bulls shot 51 percent from the field and 11 of 28 from the 3-point line as they clawed their way back from a 14-point deficit to trail by just two points with 1:01 left on the clock, but they just couldn’t get over the line as the Celtics escaped on free throws down the stretch.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been in great shape as they’ve won four of their last six games overall, but they will be looking to get back in the win column after falling painfully short to the Mavericks in a 111-110 road loss on Friday. OG Anunoby led the way with 27 points and five steals, Pascal Siakam added 18 points with seven rebounds and six assists while Chris Boucher chipped in with 17 points and nine rebounds. As a team, the Raptors shot 44 percent from the field and 11 of 34 from the 3-point line as they struggled for most of the contest and trailed by 19 points in the third quarter which proved to be just too much in the end as they got to within one point just before time expired.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 road games, 7-15 ATS in their last 22 games following a loss and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Raptors are 1-5 ATS in their last six Sunday games, 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games following a loss and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Head to head, the over is 4-0 in the last four meetings in Toronto, the Bulls are 22-8 ATS in the last 30 meetings overall and the Bulls are 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Toronto.

The Bulls will be shorthanded again as Andre Drummond, Coby White and Lonzo Ball are all out, while Zach LaVine and Derrick Jones Jr. are both listed as questionable. The Raptors could also be without some key players as Pascal Siakam is considered doubtful while Fred VanVleet is listed as questionable. It’s always tough to pick games with so many key players listed on the injury report, but the Bulls are 12-3 ATS in the last 15 meetings in Toronto and I think they can escape with the narrow win behind another big game from DeRozan who has been on fire lately.
