CHICAGO BULLS VS. LOS ANGELES LAKERS CASH BET WAGERING ANALYSIS
The Chicago Bulls are young and they have yet to reach their potential. On the other hand, the Los Angeles Lakers are the defending champions and would do whatever it takes to avoid going back-to-back losses. It should be interesting how Zach LaVine will try to implement his will on the stingy defense of the Lakers
The Chicago Bulls have been trying to stay afloat as they wait for Lauri Markannen and other rotation players to clear quarantine. They also have Tomas Satoransky out with COVID-19 and will not be with the team as well. Zach LaVine has been carrying the Bulls but he is getting help from Coby White and center Wendell Carter Jr. This team is coming off from a tough loss against the Sacramento Kings but they are showing signs that they are getting their chemistry together. Garret Temple and Denzel Valentine were the players stepping up for the lack of firepower while they still have rookie Patrick Williams and Otto Porter Jr. to get going as the season progresses.
LOS ANGELES LAKERS
The Los Angeles Lakers were shocked by the San Antonio Spurs in their last game and lost by a wide margin of nine points, 109-118. LeBron James and Anthony Davis played well as usual and got good help from Kyle Kuzma who was inserted into the starting lineup. Talen Horton-Tucker and Montrezl Harrell came off the bench doing double-digit scoring but the team will need more from Dennis Schoeder and the defense needs to step up. This game against the Bulls should be something that will use to recalibrate from their loss and expect them to come out strong.
CHICAGO BULLS VS. LOS ANGELES LAKERS HEAD-TO-HEAD WITH SPREAD
LeBron James will not have much of a challenge from anyone in the Bulls roster but it will be interesting how Wendell Carter Jr. will try to keep up with Anthony Davis. So many mismatches and the Lakers have the edge in almost every position. Kyle Kuzma should be the one assigned to guard Zach LaVine and that will be something to watch as well.
CHICAGO BULLS VS. LOS ANGELES LAKERS CASHBET FREE PICK
The Los Angeles Lakers just had a short hiccup but the Chicago Bulls needed more production from Coby White to get over the hump. He has been inconsistent and lightning is not expected to strike twice. This should be a good bounce-back win as seen by Online Sportsbook for the Lakers and the score should be around 114-99.
