Rules for betting on the Bulls in Illinois

You can bet on Bulls games at any of the Illinois online sportsbooks or at any of IL’s eight retail sportsbooks. That means you can bet on the moneyline, spread, point total and game props.

For example, let’s say the Bulls are facing the Knicks. The Bulls are 3.5-point favorites and are -165 on the moneyline. The point total over/under is 210.

If you take the Bulls at -3.5, they have to win the game by four or more points for your spread bet to cash. If you bet on the Bulls at -165 on the moneyline, that means they need to win the game in order for your bet to cash. But at -165 odds, a $16.50 wager would net you $10.

Finally, if the Bulls and Knicks combine to score over 210 points, you will win. Sportsbooks also offer individual and game props. You can bet on anything from Zach LaVine’s point total to the first quarter spread.

How did the Bulls do last year?

The Bulls also acquired Troy Brown Jr. from Washington and Javonte Green and Daniel Theis from Boston in a three team deal, sending Luke Kornet to Boston and Daniel Gafford and Chandler Hutchison to Washington.

Zach LaVine led the team in scoring at 27.4 ppg and assists at 4.9 apg. Vucevic led the team in rebounding averaging 11.7 rpg. LaVine was an NBA All Star, marking his first All Star selection and the Bulls’ first All Star selection since Jimmy Butler in the 2016-17 season.
