Bulls vs Suns Predictions
31 March 2021
Bulls vs Suns is an inter-Conference tilt between two teams that should be part of the postseason tournament, but one has more realistic hopes than the other. We have a high end Phoenix Suns team that is playing at a higher level than they have since the days of Charles Barkley and Kevin Johnson taking on a Chicago Bulls team that is on the fringe of the playoff mix in the Eastern Conference.
Bulls vs Suns has been played over 100 times, with the split being essentially dead even. Recent seasons however, paint a completely similar picture to that of the long term history, as the Suns and Bulls have played each other quite evenly in recent years.

Phoenix Suns vs Chicago Bulls Betting Pick
This game will take place at 10:00 PM ET in PHX Arena
Why bet the Chicago Bulls +7.5?
✅ If you were assuming the Chicago Bulls would be far better right out of the gate with the addition of Nikola Vucevic, that’s a tough assumption to make. It’s going to take a few games and they will look more fluent each time out. Against the Suns, they will have their hands full. With that being said, this Bulls offense is going to be extremely difficult to stop when they connect the dots.
✅ You can’t take much away from Zach LaVine. He’s truly one of the best scorers in the NBA and he can drop 40 points on any given night. He’s not a bad passer or rebounder, either, and this game lies in his hands. Lauri Markannen is dangerous coming off the bench and a guy worth keeping an eye on. The Bulls have the pieces to keep this game extremely close. The Suns have plenty of weapons themselves, but the Bulls can keep up if they figure it out.
✅ If you’re looking for a lean on the total, I am a big fan of the over in this game. I like this to turn into a game of catch-up as both offenses are tough to stop. The Suns are solid defensively, but guys like Zach LaVine can overcome solid team defenses. Nobody can shut him down on Phoenix and having a reliable outlet in Vucevic will help a lot. Give me the Bulls to keep it close in a high-scoring game.
✅ The Chicago Bulls are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 games as a road underdog.
✅ The Phoenix Suns are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games.
Betting Pick: Bulls +7.5

Phoenix Suns vs Chicago Bulls Over/Under betting is a way of wagering on the contest without needing to pick the team that wins the game to win a wager. Instead, these bets are against a set total of combined points in the game. For a hypothetical example, we will use a total set at 225.5 points. Over/Under wagers on this Suns vs Bulls contest would be betting over or under 225.5 combined points for the two teams.
There are many factors to be considered when diving into Over/Under wagering. These factors include pace (expected possessions per game), offensive efficiency and defensive efficiency.
Knowing which teams play faster and slower, and which teams play with a higher and lower level of efficiency at each end of the floor is a large edge when over/under wagering.

Chicago Bulls vs Suns Moneyline Predictions
Money Line wagering on NBA is a fun way to bet on one team or the other, while taking the point spread out of play.
Instead of laying or taking the points on the spread, you can lay odds on the favorite or take odds on the underdog to simply win the game outright. If you are looking to wager on a game, for instance the Bulls vs Suns Money Line, but want to avoid the point spread, a Money Line wager is worth considering. Ussportbonus.com brings the best Money Line predictions.
For an example of how a Money Line wager differs from an against the spread wager, we will use our Suns -6 hypothetical example from above. Instead of the standard -110 odds on an against the spread play, the Suns can be bet on to simply win outright while laying odds. The Bulls can be bet on to win the game outright while getting odds.
In our hypothetical, we would expect to have to lay about -215 on the Suns and expect to get about +175 on the Bulls.
