No DeMar DeRozan? No problem for the Chicago Bulls in their last game against the Denver Nuggets. However, can the Bulls carry that success over to a road matchup with the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Cleveland is the best team in the NBA against the spread this season, while Chicago isn’t far behind in third. 

Here are the odds for this game via WynnBET:

Bulls vs. Cavaliers Odds, Spread and Total


  • Bulls +3.0 (-110)
  • Cavaliers -3.0 (-110)


  • Bulls: +130
  • Cavaliers: -150


  • 211.0 (Over -110/Under -110)

Bulls vs. Cavaliers Prediction and Pick

DeRozan is out for Chicago as he is in the league’s health and safety protocols, but Zach LaVine and Lonzo Ball stepped up in a big way to beat the Nuggets earlier this week. 

Now, Chicago is a road dog against Cleveland who has dropped back-to-back tough games against the Utah Jazz and Milwaukee Bucks

While the Cavs are 18-5-2 against the spread this season, they have been favored just three times all year, going 2-0-1 ATS in those games. Chicago, on the other hand, is just 5-4 against the spread as an underdog this season. 

Cleveland has surprised a lot of people with a strong start, but I’m actually going to go the other way and back the Bulls after this line moved from +2.5 to +3.0. 

Chicago is sixth in the NBA in offensive rating and fifth in defensive rating while Cleveland is 19th and fourth in those same metrics. The Bulls’ offense can win them this game, and while losing DeRozan hurts, this team has made due without him or Nikola Vucevic already this season. 

PICK: Bulls +3 (-110)
