Chicago has lost seven of its past eight games ATS and SU, but tonight they play an Orlando team that might be worse than them. Are the Bulls trustworthy enough for your NBA picks?

The Bulls lost their last game, against the Wizards at home, but Chicago was without Zach LaVine because it was the second night of a back-to-back. The Bulls are back at home tonight after a full day off, so LaVine will be back in the starting lineup.

With that in mind, and with the Magic still without Aaron Gordon and Nikola Vucevic, the Bulls are a nice ATS value as -4 home favorites on the NBA odds board.

Chicago has been very good ATS against the East. The Bulls are 23-9 ATS against the East this season overall, and 5-3 ATS as a favorite and a home favorite.

Chicago is also 15-11-1 ATS at home this season, which should help them tonight, especially with LaVine back. Even with the Magic running through teams ATS as of late, the Bulls are the ones who are undervalued in this spot. Considering the Magic are only 15-19 ATS against the East, for my NBA picks I like Chicago laying the points.
