Nets vs. Bulls Betting Odds
*Lines accurate at time of publication
Nets vs. Bulls Best Bets
Nets Moneyline (+110 DraftKings)
Chicago has dropped six straight games and lost them by an average of 9.83 points. The Nets traded away star Kevin Durant, but have scored 109 points per game on 45.0% from the field without him and boast plenty of depth to handle this struggling Chicago squad. Odds are better on the moneyline here but feel free to take the points with Brooklyn if you’re so inclined.
Risk: 1 unit on DraftKings to win 1.10 units. (Playable to -100)
Nets vs. Bulls Game Total Under 222 (-110 DraftKings)
The Under is 9-1 in the last 10 meetings between these two teams and 4-1 in the last four contests in Chicago. The Bulls have averaged just 101.3 points per game in their last three and defensively have only allowed 109.7 their last three times on the court. Brooklyn has scored an average of 117.0 while yielding just 110.0 in the last three games. While 222 is on the low side, Chicago just can’t seem to get it together and a Durant-less Nets may not be able to pick up all the slack to hit the Over.
Risk: 1.1 units on DraftKings to win 1 unit. (Playable to -120)
