The Chicago Bulls are looking to take their season series against the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night, but the team finds itself as a home underdog. 

The Bulls have struggled in this spot since the All-Star break, falling to 8-8-1 ATS as home dogs this season. 

So, I have two player props that I’m looking at in this game instead, especially after the last meeting between these teams ended up going to overtime.

Let’s break down why Coby White and DeMar DeRozan are great options in the prop market on Wednesday: 

Pacers vs. Bulls best NBA prop bets 

  • DeMar DeRozan OVER 26.5 points
  • Coby White OVER 9.5 rebounds and assists

DeMar DeRozan OVER 26.5 points

The last time these two teams played, DeRozan put on a show, scoring 46 points to lead the Bulls to an overtime win. 

As of late, DeRozan has been scoring the ball at a high clip, putting up 27 or more points in eight of his last 14 games. While he’s averaging 25.6 points per game over that stretch, the highs for DeRozan have outweighed some of the down games. 

The Bulls star should see a ton of good looks against an Indiana team that loves to push the pace (No. 2 in the NBA), and he’s attempted 19, 19, and 24 shots in his three games against the Pacers this season. 

If DeRozan continues to see that usage, he should be in line to clear this number tonight. 

Coby White OVER 9.5 rebounds and assists

White was held to just seven rebounds and assists in his last meeting with the Pacers due to injuring his hip in the game, but the Bulls point guard has responded well since returning to the lineup. 

The North Carolina product is averaging 6.0 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game in his last three games, tallying 15 rebounds and assists in a loss to Boston. White has cleared this prop in 13 of his last 21 games dating back to Jan. 31, and he’s averaging 4.7 rebounds and 5.2 assists per game on the season (9.9 rebounds and assists). 

I think White could be in line for a stat-sheet-stuffing game with some extra possessions involved due to Indiana’s fast-paced play.
