The Chicago Bulls invade the Toyota Center to do battle with the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in great form as they’ve won six of their past nine games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back in this one after getting routed by the Pacers in a 109-77 home loss on Monday. DeMar DeRozan led the team in scoring with 18 points, while Zach LaVine added 17 points, but no other player scored more than eight points. As a team, the Bulls shot just 36 percent from the field and six of 28 from the 3-point line as they got off to an ice-cold start and scored just 16 points in the first quarter to fall behind by 21 points at halftime. The deficit only grew in the second half as the Bulls never found any rhythm on offense, even with the game decided early. Troy Brown Jr. scored just six points on two of nine shooting; Coby White scored just four points on two of 10 shooting while Lonzo Ball finished scoreless on zero of seven shooting.

Meanwhile, the Houston Rockets have been in terrible shape as they are still stuck on one win for the season, and they are now on a 15-game losing streak after getting routed by the Celtics in a 108-90 road loss on Monday. Aaron Brooks led the team in scoring with 17 points on five of nine shooting off the bench while Kenyon Martin Jr. chipped in with 10 points, but no other player finished in double figures. As a team, the Rockets shot just 37 percent from the field and 11 of 42 from the 3-point line as they got off to a decent start and hung around in the first half, before getting completely blown out in the third quarter by 34-16 to fall behind by as many as 29 points. Jalen Green and Eric Gordon scored just nine points apiece while Jae’Sean Tate finished with just six points.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games against a team with a losing record, 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following a loss and 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games overall. The Rockets are 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record, 15-40 ATS in their last 55 home games and 1-6-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.

Alex Caruso is considered questionable with a wrist injury so the Bulls could be a little shorthanded here, but let’s face it, they should still have more than enough firepower to get past the Rockets who are riding a 15-game losing streak. There’s always a chance that this game could be close if the Bulls make the mistake of looking past the Rockets, but coming off such a bad loss, I think the Bulls will come out firing in this one.
