Suns vs. Bulls Prediction & Pick
The Suns have wasted no time proving they are the team to beat in the Western Conference. Phoenix has posted a great 14-6 record on the year, which includes a perfect 6-0 mark at home. It also checks in at second in the league in terms of offensive efficiency as well as average scoring margin (+6.8).
The Bulls have the talent to beat any team in the NBA with DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine leading the way. This is a nightmare matchup, though. Chicago is 0-5 straight up in its last five games against the Suns and is set to face a defense that allows opponents to shoot just 45.9% (No. 9 in NBA).
Deandre Ayton is averaging over 20.0 points and 14.0 rebounds in his last five games, so I'll back the Suns here.
Final Score Prediction: Suns: 114 | Bulls: 109
Suns vs. Bulls Best Bet
As mentioned above, the Suns' defense is no joke. It ranks fifth in defensive efficiency and holds opponents to just 105.0 points per game at the Footprint Center. Keep in mind Chicago also shines on that side of the court. The Bulls rank 11th in the NBA when it comes to defensive efficiency.
When two elite defenses go head-to-head, it tends to result in a ton of contested shots. That bodes well for the under. The total has hit the under in seven of Chicago's last 10 games as well as in four of Phoenix's last five games. It's cashed in four of the last six matchups between the Suns and Bulls, too.
Bet: Under 227 Points (-110)
