Having just started a 41-point performance against the Jazz, De’Aaron Fox and the 24-45 Sacramento Kings now turn their attention to the 41-26 Chicago Bulls tonight at 10:00 p.m. EST.
The Kings will be without Domantas Sabonis but the Bulls are really feeling the effects of the injury report – they will be without Zach LaVine, Alex Caruso, Patrick Williams, Lonzo Ball and potentially Nikola Vucevic.
That means it will be DeMar DeRozan’s performance for Chicago, which has won two in a row after a five-game losing streak. Sacramento have lost 4 games in a row but won 5-2-1 by margin (ATS) in their last 8 games.
Is the value in the Bulls getting their third straight win or will the Kings take advantage of a depleted Chicago roster to get their own wins?

De’Aaron Fox has been on fire recently. In his last 10 games, the speed point guard is averaging 30.0 points, 7.9 assists, 4.0 rebounds, and 1.2 steals on 52% of shots. He has dropped more than 40 points twice in the last week and now faces a Bulls team lacking all of their quality perimeter defenders.
But the guy DeMar DeRozan in Chicago is pretty good, too. He carried the Bulls all year as they tackled the injury bug and he’s well equipped to do it again against a Kings defense that is 26th in net rating in the last 10 games.
Despite DeRozan’s excellent play, Chicago hasn’t been doing so well lately. The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in the last seven games and they are 18th average in real ratings compared to their previous 10 games. The Kings have kept recent games and are 6-2 ATS in the last eight as an underdog home team. Meanwhile, the Bulls are just 2-4-1 ATS in their last seven games as a road favorite.
I’m sticking with the hotter team at home and think Sacramento keeps it within a few properties and could win outright. But I also like below. Both offenses have ranked outside the top 20 in offensive ratings for the past three weeks, and odds researchers are still overreacting to the Bulls frantically running into mid-season. However, the bottom door has been a great bet in recent Chicago games – the score is 9-2 from last month and I think the Bulls play a slower game with all their injuries. .
Pick: Kings +4 (110) and Under 236 (-110)
