The Bulls are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 Sunday games. The over is 6-0 in Bulls last 6 games playing on 1 days rest. The Raptors are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 games overall. The Bulls are 15-5 ATS in the last 20 meetings. The over is 6-2 in the last 8 meetings in Toronto and 14-4 in the last 18 meetings.

The Chicago Bulls have done nothing this preseason to get behind them with confidence, and that defensive effort seems to be getting worse every time they play. The Toronto Raptors held their own against a loaded Rockets team, and they enter this contest with some rest under their belt. You could argue the Bulls have looked the worst of any team this preseason for whatever that's worth. Either way, give me the Raptors at home and the small line.
