Toronto Raptors vs. Chicago Bulls - 11/7/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Toronto Raptors vs. Chicago Bulls - 11/7/17 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction”

The Raptors are 6-3 against the spread (2-1 home), while they are 4-5 on over/under (2-1 home), and while the spread is -11 on this one and not very easy to predict. The first quarter has been the downfall in poor performances, and Toronto was outscored 32-17 in the first period Sunday.

Both teams are going into the game off home losses. The Chicago Bulls have lost three of their last four road games. Chicago have not shot better than 47.7 percent in any game this season.

Bobby Portis will come off his eight-game suspension for Tuesday's game against the Toronto Raptors.

Mirotic still can not play because of the injury, but Portis is set to rejoin the Bulls on Tuesday night when visit the Toronto Raptors. While he's still likely the fifth offensive option in the Raptors' starting five, it's a good problem to have if he can continue to contribute.

Miserable shooting from beyond the arc (5-24) played a huge part in 96:107 loss to the Wizards, while the Raptors were also inaccurate enough from the free-throw line (17-27), so I believe they will improve against the Bulls because another miserable shooting night could cost them a victory.

"We just have to find a way to start the game strong", said Raptors forward Norman Powell, who scored 19 points on Sunday. Lowry's status for Tuesday's game is questionable with a back injury. I like the over in this game with the total being under 200 points. The Bulls frontcourt of Robin Lopez and Markkanen combined for 35 points and 16 rebounds. The Bulls are scoring 92.00 points per contest on average, and they are the last in the league in that segment, while they are allowing 98.25 points in return, which put them in a highly respectable fourth place in the National Basketball Association.

Holiday is a player who can get you points, but he's a high-volume shooter as opposed to an efficient one.

DeMar DeRozan has been excellent this season for the Raptors, averaging 23.9 points per game.

The Raptors are 11-point favorites this time around after covering a 13.5-point number with relative ease last month. Lauri Markkanen is averaging 16.3 points and nine rebounds while Justin Holiday is averaging 15.6 points and 1.4 assists. Casey struggled with that Sunday against Washington as he scrambled to figure out how to replace the ejected Lowry. Chicago latest away match resulted in a win at Orlando, and the Bulls are hoping to upset the Raptors in Toronto. Now, they received more bad news as their promising young swingman, David Nwaba, will miss the next two to four weeks due to a sprained ankle.

One thing to keep an eye on is the return of Bobby Portis. Tip-off time is 7:30 pm ET.
