The Chicago Bulls and Toronto Raptors are two of the hottest teams in the NBA right now both SU and ATS. However, with the Bulls playing at home, is there value in these NBA Odds against these two former rivals?

Free NBA Pick: Over 215.5Best Line Offered: at Bookmaker

There is no telling what could go on with the spread in this game. With the Raptors as -5 road favorites, and the Bulls 7-4-1 ATS as home dogs this season, you know the spread will be hotly contested on both sides.

However, I am laying off the sharp ATS number and going with a play on the total of 215 ½. While there are other games on this monster NBA slate that project t be higher scoring, this game could see one or both teams get above 115 points.

These two hooked up earlier in the year and they blew right through the over, and so far the over has cashed three straight dating back to last season, and it’s cashed in four of the last five games between these two.

With Chicago tearing it up cashing the over in 13 of their last 18 games due to their bad defense and better-than-expected offense, I see the over cashing again in this one.

The Raptors have cashed the over in four of their last five road games, allowing 110.2 points per game during that stretch, so look for the Bulls to come out hot offensively. Some early offense should be all we need to make sure the game total goes over once again for these two teams.
