Chicago Bulls Betting Preview
One of the most difficult tasks in building a young team in the NBA is commitment. A good example of this is the Minnesota Timberwolves. The team has had a crop of young players full of potential shipped off and replaced by the more experienced players despite the fact that some of these young players have the potential of shining.
As for Chicago Bulls, head coach Jim Boylen is trying to use a different yet more stable approach to success. This involves investing in a young team and mixing them with the more experienced players. This is done with the hope that they’ll turn into something extraordinary.

Key Points About the Chicago Bulls
Before betting on the Chicago Bulls, you need to go into the season remembering these three important points:
1. One of the key players on the Chicago Bulls is Zach LaVine. He is athletic, exciting to watch as he plays and assumably healthier than he was in the last season. The best thing about him is his defensive play. Despite being inconsistent, he received an $80 million for a four-year contract. And now he has to step up and prove that he is worth all that money.
2. Dunn cannot be possibly done. He has been awarded Best Ball for his first two seasons with the Bulls before an injury forced him to miss out on 25 of the Bull’s 37 games. Therefore, re-establishing himself and proving that he’s still got it will be his top priority.
