Tip-off is at 8:30 p.m. ET at Frost Bank Center in San Antonio. Chicago is favored by 2.5 points in the latest Spurs vs. Bulls odds, per SportsLine consensus, and the over/under is 224.5 points.

What you need to know about the Bulls

The Bulls had already won two in a row (a stretch where they outscored their opponents by an average of 6.5 points), and they went ahead and made it three on Wednesday. They walked away with a 111-100 victory over the Charlotte Hornets. Winning is a bit easier when you outrebound your opponent 21 to 12 on the offensive boards, as the Bulls did.

DeMar DeRozan led the way with 29 points, while Coby White contributed 19 points. The No. 7 overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, White has really stepped up since Zach LaVine (foot) left the lineup. White is averaging 21.5 points, 4.6 rebounds and 4.5 assists over his last eight games and is knocking down over 40% of his 3-pointers for the season. While the Bulls have covered in each of their last three games, they have lost versus the spread in each of their last four road games. See which team to pick here.

What you need to know about the Spurs

Meanwhile, the Spurs’ recent rough patch got a bit rougher on Wednesday after their 15th straight loss. They took a 102-94 hit to the loss column at the hands of the Minnesota Timberwolves. The loss unfortunately continues a disappointing trend for the Spurs in their matchups with the Wolves as they’ve now lost three in a row. Devin Vassell (22 points) and Keldon Johnson (21 points) led San Antonio, while Victor Wembanyama had 12 points and 10 rebounds but made just 4 of 13 shots from the field.

The top overall pick is averaging 18.9 points, 9.7 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.6 blocks and 1.3 steals per game. The Spurs are the third-youngest team in the NBA, and that youth is evident on both ends of the court. They commit the third-most turnovers on offense and allow the second-highest 3-point percentage on defense. The Spurs have covered in their last two home games and have covered in four of their last six games overall, regardless of location. See which team to pick here.
