I’m a believer in Chicago’s new-look roster, as Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan and Alex Caruso should bring some much-needed playmaking and defense to this team.
Here are three prop bets that I have my eye on for tonight’s matchup:
Best Prop Bets Bulls vs. Pistons
- Zach LaVine OVER 24.5 Points (-116)
- Killian Hayes to Record a Double-Double (+1700)
- Lonzo Ball OVER 11.5 Assists and Rebounds (+100)
Zach LaVine OVER 24.5 Points (-116)
LaVine has averaged 25.5 and 27.4 points per game over the past two seasons, respectively, and now he gets to play with Ball, a point guard that will set him up with much better looks than the shoot-first Coby White did.
LaVine quietly had an unbelievable season in the 2020-21 campaign, as he shot 50.7 percent from the field (up from 45.0 percent the season before) and 41.9 percent from 3-point range (up from 38.0 percent the season before).
I think he may be a bit undervalued at just 24.5 points in this game, even with the extra scoring presence that the Bulls added this offseason. Give me the over for LaVine here.
Killian Hayes to Record a Double-Double (+1700)
Allow me a moment to share some of Killian Hayes' playmaking prowess from the little action we’ve seen from him in the NBA. Hayes missed most of his rookie season due to injury.
Hayes has some special vision as a playmaker, and while he averaged just 6.8 points and 5.3 assists per game last year, his role should expand this season. The fact that he’s +1700 to record a double-double is just way too much value for me to pass up if it hits.
Lonzo Ball OVER 11.5 Assists and Rebounds (+100)
The Bulls brought Ball in this offseason to hand him the keys to their offense, and I think he could win the league’s Most Improved Player award.
The logic behind this prop is simple.
In his four NBA seasons, Ball has averaged combined assist and rebounds totals of 14.1, 10.7, 13.1 and 10.5.
He’s going to hover around that 11-12 mark on a nightly basis, and at +100 odds I love his chances of making a great first impression in Chicago.
