The second half of the season is here, and the Chicago Bulls are in a position to make the playoffs for the first time since 2016-2017. It all begins Thursday night against the best in the east, the Philadelphia 76ers. The best in the east, however, will be without their two all-stars because of COVID-19 protocols.

You know where I’m going with this. It’s time to hammer the Bulls tonight on PointsBet.

Three Best Bets For Bulls vs. 76ers

Bulls To Cover (-3.5) And To Win (-164)

The Bulls have higher expectations than they did when the season started, and those expectations include no more bad losses down the stretch. Thursday’s game would be considered a bad loss because the two best players on the floor will be sitting out.

Unlike Philadelphia, the Bulls are back to almost full strength. Aside from Chandler Hutchinson, everyone should be available for the near future.

For those reasons, I will take the Bulls to cover and their Moneyline with little hesitation.

LaVine To Have 7 Assists And Bulls Win By 1-10 (+550) 

Fresh off his first all-star appearance, Zach LaVine will regain the team’s second-best scorer help shoulder the load. Lauri Markkanen will return to the lineup and so will Otto Porter Jr.

For that reason, this is my favorite bet of the night. Without Simmons to lockdown Zach, he should have a big night and get everyone involved. Markkanen may be on a minutes restriction, but hopefully, he can knock down a couple of shots to help out this bet.

When the two teams played each other a couple of weeks ago, LaVine had five assists.

This is a fun play tonight and worth a look.

Coby White 15+ Points And Bulls To Win (-130) 

I wasn’t kidding when I said I’m hammering the Bulls tonight. Coby seems to be finding his role as a guy that gives the team 15-20 each night.

In his last three games, White has totaled 19, 20, and 25 points. All three of those coming against some of the league’s best defensive teams, no less. This is the easiest bet, of the three, for Thursday’s matchup.

The second half of the season is here. Can the Chicago Bulls blow past all of their expectations this year and make the playoffs? It certainly seemed like a pipe dream, even after Billy Donovan was hired, but LaVine’s jump and the unleashing of Thaddeus Young have put the Bulls back on the radar.

It’s time to get in on the fun. For the best lines for Chicago fans, PointsBet has you covered. What’s even better than the lines are the two risk-free bets you get to kick things off.
