Spurs vs Bulls Prop Bets Today

1. Jakob Poeltl - Assists: Over 2.5 (-114)

Jakob Poeltl is not known as a facilitator by any means, but this number seems a tad low given the favorable matchup he draws on Monday night. The Chicago Bulls allow the third-most assists to opposing centers (4.22) and the 10th-most assists to opposing teams overall (25.0). Poeltl has also racked up at least 3 assists in five of his last eight games and is beginning to pass more when locked up in the post. With Nikola Vuceivc staring him down near the basket tonight, look for the sixth-year pro to dish out the ball more than usual and cash the over on this prop bet.

2. DeMar DeRozan - Points: Over 32.5 (-106)

Yes, this number is high. However, there may not be another player in the NBA as scorching hot as DeMar DeRozan right now. The All-Star guard has poured in at least 35 points in each of his last five games and has bumped his season average all the way up to 27.7. There's no reason to believe he goes cold tonight. The Spurs play at a top-five pace in the NBA despite ranking outside the top 15 when it comes to defensive efficiency. San Antonio is also allowing 113.3 points per game over its last three contests. Keep backing DeRozan until he provides a reason not to.

3. Dejounte Murray - Rebounds: Under 7.5 (+104)

There's no doubt that Dejounte Murray is in the midst of his best NBA season so far. This number is just a tad too high, though. Murray has posted less than eight rebounds in three of his last four games and now has to face a Bulls team that loves to crash the boards. Chicago gives up the sixth-fewest rebounds per game (50.5) and allows an opponent offensive rebounding percentage of just 21.7% (No. 5 in NBA). It's worth noting that Murray averages only 5.9 rebounds against the Bulls in his career (7 games). That makes it smart to bet on the under here.
