The Chicago Bulls and the LA Lakers have one hell of a rival, which is why Sunday night’s event raises enormous hype. 

Before Betting on the Bulls vs. Lakers

The Bulls are trying to improve their position before the play-in, as they probably can’t reach the sixth place in the East and a direct spot in the playoffs. The Heat currently holds the sixth position and are 4.5 games ahead of the Bulls. 

Chicago has four wins in the previous five events, beating teams like Minnesota, Miami, Philadelphia, and Portland. The only defeat was at home against the 76ers, whom they defeated two nights before in Philly after two overtimes, 109-105. 

The Lakers won three in a row and are at the .500 record. All three events were at home, against the Magic, the Suns, and most lately, vs. OKC Thunder, 116-111. Right now, the purple and gold are 8th in the West, but they can easily reach the 5th position or, on the other hand, miss the playoffs. 

Anthony Davis scored 37 points with 15 boards, hitting 15 of his 21 shots. Dennis Schroder had 21 points, and Lonnie Walker IV had one fewer. The purple and gold had 53 boards controlling the glass well.

The Lakers look pretty well at home, even though they don’t have LeBron. Despite Chicago’s solid form, we have to give the edge to the hosts, whose motive is bigger.
