The Chicago Bulls and Orlando Magic meet Sunday in NBA action at the Kia Center. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Bulls vs Magic prediction.

Chicago Bulls

The Chicago Bulls have been in decent shape as they've won three of their last five games overall and they will be eager to keep it going after taking down the Knicks in a 108-100 home win on Friday. Javonte Green led the team in scoring with 25 points and 13 rebounds off the bench, Ayo Dosunmu added 24 points with six rebounds and five assists while DeMar DeRozan chipped in with 20 points and 10 assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 47 percent from the field and seven of 23 from the 3-point line, but this win was set up by their defense as they were always in control after limiting the Knicks to just 17 points in the first quarter to build an early 20-point lead.

Orlando Magic

Meanwhile, the Orlando Magic have been in fine form as they've won eight of their last 12 games overall, but they will be hoping to bounce back in this one after having their three-game win streak halted by the Hornets in a 124-115 road defeat on Friday. Paolo Banchero led the team with 32 points, eight rebounds and eight assists, Franz Wagner scored 22 points while Markelle Fultz chipped in with 15 points off the bench. As a team, the Magic shot 44 percent from the field and nine of 38 from the 3-point line as they got off to a terrible start, allowing 38 points in the first quarter to fall behind by 19 points and they just couldn't get into the lead despite scoring 36 points in the fourth quarter.

Bulls vs Magic prediction

The Bulls could be shorthanded with Coby White and Alex Caruso are both listed as questionable, while the Magic are keeping an eye on Caleb Houston, who is questionable for this one. The Bulls haven't been at their absolute best, but they just took down the Knicks in their last game, and they are certainly dangerous against this Magic squad, who just lost to the slumping Hornets in their last game. The Magic are certainly favorites for this one, but it just seems like we're getting too many free points for the Bulls here. Give me the Bulls with the points in a game they could win outright.
