The NBA Play-In games continue Wednesday night when the Chicago Bulls (40-42, 18-23 away) visit the Toronto Raptors (41-41, 27-14 home). These are the two worst teams in the play-in tournament and it is hard to see either of these teams winning two games to get into the actual playoffs. Below is my NBA pick for the Bulls vs Raptors.

Chicago Bulls vs Toronto Raptors Betting Pick

The Pick: Toronto Raptors -5.0 at BetUS Sportsbook

This game will be played at Scotiabank Arena at 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 12, 2023.

Why Bet the Toronto Raptors:

✅ Toronto enters this game in pretty good form having won six of their last nine regular season games.

✅ The Raptors, at home, are a good team and they have won 12 of their last 13 games on their home floor.

✅ Chicago has lost nine of their last 11 games in Toronto.

Chicago Bulls are Just Happy to be Here

Chicago had a favorable schedule to end the season and they took advantage of that by winning their last two games. The Bulls were the beneficiaries of the Mavericks not wanting to make the playoffs and then beat the Pistons, who may get the first overall pick, in their regular season finale. Prior to that, the Bulls lost two games in a row.

The Bulls have been balanced this season as Zach LaVine leads the way with 24.8 points per game and Nikola Vucevic is grabbing 11.0 rebounds. Demar DeRozan is dishing out a team leading 5.1 assists per game this year.

The Toronto Raptors are Disappointing

Toronto has been disappointing this season, but they have the talent to make a run and make some noise in the playoffs. The Raptors beat a resting Milwaukee Bucks team to end the regular season and will now look to get one win away from the playoffs proper. This team cannot compete with the top teams in the conference, but they should be able to clear this hurdle.

Pascal Siakam had a nice regular season and he led the Raptors with 24.2 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Fred VanVleet leads the way with 7.2 assists per game this year.
