The Chicago Bulls travel to the Scotiabank Arena to do battle with the Toronto Raptors on Monday night.

The Chicago Bulls are growing in confidence as a new team and they will be gunning for a fourth straight victory after blowing past the Pistons in a 97-82 home win on Saturday. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 21 points, six rebounds and six assists, Nikola Vucevic racked up 15 points with 19 rebounds and three blocks while Zach LaVine chipped in with 14 points and five assists. As a team, the Bulls shot just 41 percent from the field and 11 of 26 from the 3-point line as they struggled early on and fell behind by nine points to start the game, but they took control of the game by the end of the first quarter and allowed just 26 points in the second and third quarters combined to lead by as many as 31 points before resting their starters early.

Meanwhile, the Toronto Raptors have had a mixed start to the season as they’ve lost two of their first three games and they will be hoping to bounce back after getting stopped by the Mavericks in a 103-95 home loss on Saturday. OG Anunoby led the team in scoring with 23 points, two steals and two blocks, Fred VanVleet added 20 points with five assists while Scottie Barnes chipped in with 17 points and eight rebounds. As a team, the Raptors shot just 40 percent from the field and 11 of 37 from the 3-point line as they got off to a quick start and jumped out to an early 14-point lead, but they couldn’t maintain that intensity, especially in the second half where they struggled to find their offense, falling behind by as many as 16 points in a disappointing finish.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 7-0 ATS in their last seven games as a favorite, 19-7 ATS in their last 26 games against a team with a losing record and 4-0 ATS in their last four games overall. The Raptors are 0-6-1 ATS in their last seven home games, 1-9-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog and 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games against a team with a winning record.

Head to head, the over is 8-2 in the last 10 meetings in Toronto, the Bulls are 19-7 ATS in the last 26 meetings overall and the Bulls are 11-2 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Toronto.

The Bulls are checking all the boxes at this early stage of the season as a new squad and their confidence will only grow if they can get their fourth straight win in this one. The Raptors have only played well in one of their three games so far and they won’t be feeling too good after squandering a 14-point lead against the Mavericks on Saturday. The Bulls are a perfect 3-0 ATS on the season and there’s no reason to go against that trend with the struggling Raptors still shorthanded in this one.
