The Chicago Bulls played a tough game against the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night, and they’re back in action on the road on Thursday against the Detroit Pistons.
Detroit is down Jalen Duren, Cade Cunningham and Isaiah Stewart on Wednesday, and the team has lost five straight games ahead of this matchup.
Chicago’s record hasn’t been great over its last 10 games, but the team is in the top-10 in net rating over that stretch.
With the Pistons on track for a shot at the No. 1 pick, do the Bulls get back on track on Wednesday?
Bulls vs. Pistons odds, spread and total
Bulls vs. Pistons prediction and pick
There’s one key trend that favors the Bulls in this game: The Pistons are just 10-15-1 against the spread as home underdogs, losing those games by an average margin of 6.5 points.
With the Pistons down two key big men, Nikola Vucevic should have a field day for Chicago against a team that struggles at home.
The Bulls need every game they can get to make the playoffs, so I’d expect Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan to both suit up in this game.
Chicago has struggled as a road favorite (1-7 ATS), but the Pistons (27th in offensive rating, 28th in defensive rating) are the perfect team to reverse that trend against.
