Chicago Bulls vs Phoenix Suns Betting Analysis

The Suns will get their second game with the new look against Chicago tonight, and what makes this game a bit difficult to handicap is that both teams have played awful opponents.

They’ve looked impressive in beating these bad teams, but tonight will be a nice little test for both teams to see what level they are at after the all-star break.

The bulls are the 11 seed in the East, but everyone is very bunched up so just a few wins will vault the Bulls into the play-in games.

Phoenix is the #4 seed, and with this roster they’ll be trying to get the team to gel quickly to make a run at the Championship.

Suns New Era

Phoenix cruised by Charlotte, but…it’s Charlotte. Durant and company looked solid together, and this should be the blueprint for the Suns with Durant and Booker scoring, Ayton controlling the boards (16 rebounds), and Chris Paul setting up the offense (11 assists).

Ayton will have a bit of a tougher time tonight in theory as he’ll have Vucevic to deal with, but Booker and Durant should not see much resistance against the Bulls.

Maybe Caruso and Beverley can be a nuisance to Booker, but Durant should be able to get whatever shot he wants.

Only scoring 105 against Charlotte was disappointing, but they only had 89 shot attempts in the game. Expect more tonight in a more exciting game.

Bulls Being Bullies

The Bulls have won three out of four out of the all-star break, but they were against Brooklyn, Washington and Detroit.

They lost to Toronto, and they only beat the Pistons by two points which is alarming as they had their normal starting lineup.

This is such a weird starting lineup now as they are putting Lavine, Caruso, and Beverley as starters with Vucevic and DeRozan, so immediately they have two starters who contribute very little for scoring.

I just don’t believe in this Chicago team at all. Losing to Toronto, who isn’t very good either, was a bad look as was only scoring 98 points.

They have issues on offense in their supporting cast, and they have defensive issues inside so this is a team I’m not excited to bet on.

Chicago Bulls vs Phoenix Suns Expert Prediction

It’s tough to bet on a team who is so new, but the talent on the team is special, and much better than Chicago.

Phoenix has built a team that is going to be tough to keep up with on the scoreboard, and don’t forget how good Durant’s defense was in Brooklyn.

Chicago has shown it’s struggling to score outside of big games from Lavine or DeRozan, and I don’t see them keeping up tonight. I’ll take Phoenix as a small favorite laying the points.

Prediction: Phoenix Suns -3.5
