Through 2 Quarters

The Chicago Bulls are on the road but looking no worse for wear. They are way out in front at halftime with a 63-51 lead over the Toronto Raptors.

Center Nikola Vucevic (14 points) and point guard Lonzo Ball (12 points) have been the top scorers for the Bulls. Those points put Nikola Vucevic near his season high of 15.

Toronto has been relying on small forward OG Anunoby, who has ten points and five assists along with three boards, and shooting guard Gary Trent Jr., who has 12 points. Anunoby does need to be careful, however, as he is in early foul trouble with three.

Current Records: Chicago 3-0; Toronto 1-2

What to Know

The Chicago Bulls have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will take on the Toronto Raptors at 7:30 p.m. ET Monday at Scotiabank Arena. The Bulls should still be riding high after a victory, while Toronto will be looking to regain their footing.

Chicago strolled past the Detroit Pistons with points to spare this past Saturday, taking the game 97-82. The top scorer for Chicago was small forward DeMar DeRozan (21 points).

Meanwhile, Toronto came up short against the Dallas Mavericks this past Saturday, falling 103-95. The losing side was boosted by small forward OG Anunoby, who shot 5-for-9 from downtown and finished with 23 points.

Barring any buzzer beaters, Chicago is expected to win a tight contest. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread as they are currently on a three-game streak of ATS wins.

The Bulls’ win brought them up to 3-0 while the Raptors’ defeat pulled them down to 1-2. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Chicago ranks second in the league when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 94 on average. Toronto is not quite as good, but they are no chumps, either: they enter the matchup with only 94.7 points allowed per game on average, good for fourth best in the league.
