Best NBA prop bets today for Bulls vs. Kings (Bet on the DeMar DeRozan bounce back)

Breaking down the best prop bets for the Chicago Bulls in their matchup against the Sacramento Kings.

The Chicago Bulls struggled on offense in their last game, scoring just 97 points in a loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. 

Tonight, they’ll take on the Sacramento Kings at Golden 1 Center, which could be a favorable matchup for the Bulls given the Kings’ defensive struggles at home this season. Sacramento ranks just 26th in the NBA in defensive rating at home. 

The last time these teams met, they combined for 238 points in a Kings win. If today’s game brings a similar score, there should be plenty of areas where we can take advantage in the prop market.

Here are my three favorite Bulls to target on Monday: 

Bulls vs. Kings best NBA prop bets today

  • DeMar DeRozan OVER 28.5 points and assists
  • Coby White OVER 10.5 rebounds and assists
  • Ayo Dosunmu OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

DeMar DeRozan OVER 28.5 points and assists

DeMar DeRozan struggled against Milwaukee, scoring just 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting, snapping a 10-game stretch where he scored 19 or more points (he had 20+ in nine of those games). 

However, DeRozan finished that game with nine assists, continuing a positive trend for him in that category. The Bulls star is averaging 5.3 assists per game on the season, including 5.4 assists per game over his last 15 contests. 

DeRozan is also averaging over 10 potential assists per game in that stretch. I expect him to bounce back in the scoring department tonight against a weak Sacramento defense, and it’s worth noting that he’s gone OVER 28.5 points and assists in 11 of his last 15 games. 

Coby White OVER 10.5 rebounds and assists

Coby White is averaging 4.8 rebounds and 5.3 assists (10.1 rebounds and assists) per game this season, but I think this is a chance to buy low on this prop for him. 

White had just five rebounds and assists in his last game, but he’s cleared this prop with 11 or more rebounds and assists in eight of 12 games since Jan. 31. Over that stretch, White is averaging 5.3 rebounds and 6.1 assists per game. 

He finished his last game with the Kings with 10 rebounds and assists, but I think he’s worth a shot in Sacramento where the team’s defense is significantly worse this season.  

Ayo Dosunmu OVER 1.5 3-pointers made

This is probably the most straightforward play to take tonight with Ayo Dosunmu shooting the lights out for the Bulls as of late. 

In his last 13 games (12 starts), Dosunmu has cleared this prop 11 times, shooting 47.4 percent from beyond the arc on 5.8 3-point attempts per game. 

His last matchup with the Kings was one of his higher volume days, as he attempted nine shots from deep and knocked down three of them. 

I love this number for Dosunmu on Monday night.
