Chicago Bulls vs Player Special by EliteTips
Great line of points offered by BetVictor here for Justin Holiday, Chicago Bulls shooting guard, at 15.5 points whereas in other sportbooks this same line is at 16.5 and rising.
The Chicago Bulls will face the Toronto Raptors and the asian handicap for the Raptors is -12.5 so that can tell us that this could be a blowout, why? Because the Bulls have been dismantled this season, Dwayne Wade went to the Bulls who contributed around 21 points per game on offense, Jimmy Butler has gone to the Timberwolves and he averaged around 23 a game plus assists and rebounds, Paul Gasol went to the Spurs so that is 3 main scorers are gone, they are left with Mirotic but guess what? Mirotic is injured and will not play.
Serious problems for the Bulls this season and I project them to be at the bottom of the East as they have a very short roster due mainly to injuries. Mirotic is injured, Portis is injured, Dunn will not play today and we have to add also the injury of Zach Lavine, Pondexter and Cameron Pain so that accounts for 6 players who will not be available today out of 15 on the main roster, very short rotation plus 3 of those 6 players have starting roles, Lavine SG, Dunn PG, and Mirotic PF.
Holiday was the main scorer and source of points in preseason as he scored 17 on the Raptors last Friday, 28 on Cleveland, 13 on New Orleans, and 21 on Milwaukee averaging 17.2 points per game per 27 minutes played, he will be starting today at the Shooting Guard position as the Bulls coach said that Valentine will be Holidays backup.
With the very short roster today I expect at least 32 minutes from Holiday and if he was able to average 17.2 in 27 minutes in preseason I believe that here he will easily reach 16, plus he took an average of 13 shots per game in preseason and this could go up to 17+ shots here.
