The Chicago Bulls invade the Amalie Arena to take on the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in great form lately as they’ve won five of their past seven games, but they will be looking to bounce back here after having their three-game win streak halted by the Suns in a 106-97 home loss on Friday. Zach LaVine led the team with 24 points on nine of 16 shooting, Coby White added 19 points while Thaddeus Young chipped in with 13 points, 10 rebounds and five assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 49 percent from the field and 12 of 31 from the 3-point line as they dominated the second quarter to lead by as many as 16 points early, before going ice-cold in the second half where they were outscored by 60-39. The Bulls were outscored in the paint by 66-44 and they committed 19 turnovers.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have been in decent shape as they’ve won five of their past seven games and they will be looking to stay hot after taking down the Rockets in a 122-111 home win on Friday. Norman Powell led the team with 30 points on 10 of 15 shooting, Kyle Lowry racked up a triple-double of 20 points with 11 rebounds and 10 assists while Fred VanVleet chipped in with 25 points on six of 23 shooting. As a team, the Raptors shot 44 percent from the field and 16 of 41 from the 3-point line as they took control of the game with 37 points in the second quarter, before holding the Rockets to just 21 points in the third quarter to lead by as many as 23 points. Pascal Siakam sat out the game due to health and safety protocols.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 road games, 7-0 ATS in their last seven Sunday games and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. The Raptors are 6-14 ATS in their last 20 home games, 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following a win of more than 10 points and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall.

Head to head, the over is 7-2 in the last nine meetings in Toronto, the Bulls are 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings overall and the Bulls are 10-2 ATS in the last 12 meetings in Toronto.

The Bulls have quietly been one of the form teams of the Eastern Conference as they were on a nice run before getting stopped by the red-hot Suns in their last outing. The Raptors are finally stringing together wins after a slow start to the season and they will be feeling good after taking down the slumping Rockets on Friday. The Bulls are 16-5 ATS in the last 21 meetings overall and I feel we're getting just enough free points in this one, especially with Pascal Siakam out for the Raptors.
