Toronto Raptors vs Chicago Bulls prediction

The Toronto Raptors are better than what this recent stretch suggests, but at some point they have to prove it. The Raptors aren't winning, they're not covering numbers, and their offense is riding the struggle bus. The Chicago Bulls aren't a team I'm thrilled to lay big numbers with, but they should be able to get the job done here at home against a Raptors team that can't get out of their own way. The Raptors are 6-17 SU on the road this season. I'll lay the points with the Bulls.
