Sportsbooks favor Bulls over Magic with huge betting odds

Bulls odds favorite against Magic

With the Chicago Bulls on an amazing winning streak and starting the new year atop the conference table, the sportsbooks online and in Vegas are tipping their hats to the team with the odds on the upcoming game against the Orlando Magic.

The struggling Magic have never been considered much of a threat this season, with a dismal 7-30 record they are second to last in the rankings, beating only the hapless Pistons. But anyone who has underestimated them has suffered for it. The Bulls, on the other side are on a 7-game winning streak, after beating the Wizards by a point in their last game. With the game being played at home at United Center and the team regaining some of its strength with fewer people remaining sidelined due to the NBA’s health and safety protocols, the game against Orlando is considered pretty much in the bag.

At lest this is the feeling one would get if they took a look at the betting odds posted by the sportsbooks. Both the online bookmakers and the Vegas bookies are heavily favoring the Chicago Bulls, judging by the numbers we’ve received thanks to our friends at the Online Casino ORG website. Tracking not only odds, but casino gaming, as well, we have tapped them for information about the former and here is what’s going on with the betting slip for the Magic – Bulls game tonight.

The Bulls are a huge favorite to win the game outright on Monday at United Center. Chicago is averaging -1000 on the money line at Las Vegas, which online the odds are even juicer for those willing to risk money on the Magic: Orlando would pay on +725, while the line on the Bulls is at the whopping -1300 on a pretty much done-deal, according to the odds makers. The Internet bookies also have the spread on the Orlando – Chicago game set higher than their Vegas counterparts at -13 points chalk the Bulls, compared to -11.5 ATS at the Vegas sportsbooks. Keep in mind that the Vegas bookies are usually slower to update and, according to, we should expect to have both the money line and the point spread in Las Vegas catch up to the online betting sites as the game nears.

The Magic vs. Bulls game will begin tonight at 8pm at United Center. Following the Monday matchup, the Bulls will take an extended break for the rest of the week, before welcoming the Wizards for a rematch on Friday. Hopefully the time between games will be enough to get some of the players on COVID protocols back on the team and training for the game against the visiting Washington. And we can even see Alex Caruso (foot) available against the Wizards on Friday.
