Sacramento Kings at Chicago Bulls Betting Analysis
Chicago will play without both Lonzo Ball and Zach LaVine. Ball won’t return to the lineup until late March while LaVine is out until late February.
But although the Bulls have had to play without two of their starters, they’ve continued to win ball games. Chicago is an excellent 4-0 straight up in their last 4. Against the spread, the Bulls have gone 4-1 ATS in their last 5.
DeMar DeRozan averages 28 points per game. DeRozan plays the small forward position. He also leads the team in assists with 5 per.
With DeMar having his best season ever, the Bulls have become one of the teams to beat from the Eastern Conference. But Chicago could struggle to take down the Kings on Wednesday night.
The Kings made a move before the trade deadline to secure the services of Domantas Sabonis. The defense has gotten a huge boost with Sabonis in the lineup. Since Feb. 2, Sacramento has gone 5-2 against the spread.
Not only that, but Sacramento heads into this after an embarrassing 109-85 loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night. Expect a bounce back from the Kings.
The Bulls are tough to beat. If we’re going to take a shot at beating Chicago with an under the radar squad, though, Wednesday night is the night to do it. The Sacramento Kings’ moneyline is the play.
