Chicago Bulls Betting Outlook
- Championship Odds: +4000
- Conference Odds: +2000
- Division Odds: +750
There has been a stack of money for the Chicago Bulls after they made excellent off-season acquisitions. It’s clear the Bulls are trying to make a playoff run by adding the likes of Lonzo Ball, Alex Caruso and DeMar DeRozan.
They have a squad capable of giving Zach LaVine and Derrick Jones Jr. some help, so we’re not surprised by the big bets coming their way.
Chicago opened at +10000, and it has been backed into +4000 to win the NBA Championship. We always see one team backed off the charts before the season starts, and the Bulls are the trending team.
We’re not sure if a title run is in the offing, but the Bulls should be in the mix for a playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

Chicago Bulls Team Leaders
The oldest player on the roster is new recruit DeMar DeRozan at 32 years old. He’s not always the most vocal player on court but his experience playing for the San Antonio Spurs and Toronto Raptors is unparalleled at the Bulls.
It’s a young team, so the Bulls will need DeRozan and Alex Caruso to step up in the big moments. We haven’t left out LaVine, who is likely the best player on the team based on current talent levels.
He is maturing with every season, so with DeRozan by his side, he should see his overall game improve, and not just his scoring numbers.
Lonzo Ball, despite being only 23 years old, plays well above his age. He is another quality addition to the team leader group.
It was a disappointing season for the Bulls, who went 31-41 when finishing third in the Central Division. More was expected from the Bulls, especially in a division that included the Cleveland Cavaliers and Detroit Pistons.
LaVine led the team with 27.4 points per game, with Nikola Vucevic second-best with 21.5. The Bulls had seven players averaging more than 10 PPG, but it was defense that let them down.
There was a big focus on scoring points, but apart from Nikola Vucevic and Thaddeus Young, there wasn’t much of a defensive prowess.
Expectations were high for the Bulls, who were expecting to make the playoffs. To not really come close was a misstep for this franchise, but the Eastern Conference was strong, and there were some games that the Bulls let slip.

Billy Donovan didn’t have a successful season with the Chicago Bulls at his first attempt, but he’s a quality coach as he showed with Oklahoma City.
He took the Thunder to the Conference Finals in his year in 2016, before losing in the first round of the playoffs in four subsequent seasons.
Winning only 31 games in his first season with the Bulls would be disheartening, but he gets a fantastic group of players to work with. He mostly had role players last season, so getting the likes of DeRozan and Ball will strengthen his chances of posting a winning record for the first time since the Thunder won 44 games in the 2019-20 season.
