Masai Ujiri told Toronto Raptors fans to expect some growing pains early in the season, and they’ve certainly been on full display due to some uneven performances from game to game. The latest Raptors odds seem to suggest that this streak is going to continue against an old friend.
DeMar DeRozan is coming to town with the Chicago Bulls, who have won each of their first three games. With Toronto coming off of a very deflating defeat against Dallas, it might be tough to take down such a deep roster.
Even with that skill, the Bulls are far from invincible, and with the likes of Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown already having tasted defeat at the hands of Nick Nurse and this young team, Chicago can’t write this game off as an easy victory.
Will Toronto end up snagging a win against DeRozan and the Bulls? Doing so would require them to break out of their shooting slump while maintaining their defensive edge.
Bulls vs Raptors Odds, Spread, Over/Under & Betting Pick
The latest odds from WynnBET have Chicago as -2.5 favorites against the spread, with Billy Donovan’s team -115 (bet $105 to win $100) to cover. The Bulls are -145 (bet $145 to win $100) on the moneyline, while Toronto checks in at +125 (bet $100 to win $125).
The over-under in this contest is 212.5, with the under coming in at -110 and the over also listed at -110. With Toronto struggling to create offense and staying in games on the back of some strong defense, Vegas is expecting a tough defensive matchup.

Toronto Raptors vs Chicago Bulls Prediction
The Raptors have scored 95 points or fewer in both of their losses, yet have shown enough offensive skill to completely demolish the Celtics on the road. Expect their uneven performance to continue against a Bulls team that is red hot right now.
Toronto will hang in there against DeRozan and friends, but with Nikola Vucevic going to work in the paint, the Bulls might have an X-factor in the post that helps them get the victory. If the interior defense and perimeter shooting doesn’t improve, Toronto could slump to 1-3.
Bulls 105, Raptors 100
