Like most Lithuanians, I started watching basketball from the age of six. I'm based out in London and played basketball at the University of Lincoln here in the UK. I had always had an interest in the NBA but things really took off in the summer of 2010. That year Linas Kleiza led Lithuania to 3rd place at the World Championships and signed with the Toronto Raptors to replace the departing Chris Bosh. I've been a Raptors fan since that day and I've not missed a game since. I've been handicapping games for more than a decade, specializing in player props.

Yesterday I was able to hit my Thunder vs Magic Same Game Parlayat +630 odds to make it 2 SGP wins in 2 days. Now we’ll look to make it 3 in 3 days as the Chicago Bulls visit the red-hot Cleveland Cavaliers. The hosts have won 9 of their last 10 games and are starting to solidify the 2nd seed in the Eastern Conference as their own. They are taking on a Bulls team that will feel desperate to win, which could help force them into the race for the 6th seed.

You can check out all of our NBA picks for today’s games, but for now, let’s jump into my Bulls vs Cavaliers Same Game Parlay.

DeMar DeRozan Over 21.5 points (-113)

Nikola Vucevic Over 9.5 rebounds (-118)

Max Strus Over 1.5 made threes (-154)

Same Game Parlay odds: +418

DeMar DeRozan over 21.5 points (-113)

DeMar DeRozan has been on a scoring roll of late. So far in February he is averaging 28.8 points per game, surpassing the 22-point mark in each of the 5 games. What is even more impressive is that he is averaging under a 3-pointer made per game. Instead he is a mid-range assassin, something the Cavaliers could have issues slowing down tonight. Their backcourt of Darius Garland and Donovan Mitchell is undersized compared to DeRozan, allowing the Bulls’ star to utilize his post game. Max Strus, on the other hand, may have issues containing DeRozan off the dribble. DeRozan is averaging 11 free-throw attempts per game this month and should be able to draw fouls from the Cavaliers.

Nikola Vucevic over 9.5 rebounds (-118)

Bulls center Nikola Vucevic has also been on a great streak of his own, only when it comes to rebounding. He has double-digit rebounds in 5 of his last 6 games. He is also averaging 11 per game against the Cavaliers this season. They are favorable opponents for him due to the presence of Jarrett Allen. The center for the hosts lacks floor spacing ability, keeping the battle between these big men confined to the paint. That is especially true with Allen being 4th in the league in offensive rebounds per game. Luckily for the Bulls, Vucevic has the size to keep him off the glass. With that likely being a primary focus for the center on the defensive end, it should help translate to yet another strong rebounding night for Vucevic.

Max Strus over 1.5 made threes (-154)

Strus has started to pick up his 3-point shooting for the Cavaliers, making 37.8% of his attempts so far this month. That includes knocking down at least 2 triples in each of his last 2 games. He has also taken on the Bulls twice this season, attempting 6 3-pointers in one contest and 17 in the other. If his attempts fall anywhere between those 2 numbers tonight, he should be odds on to hit this over. The Bulls boast a great defender in Alex Caruso that they can deploy on Donovan Mitchell, encouraging him to give up the ball. I expect Strus to benefit from this tonight. He will be helped by the fact the Bulls are just 25th in opponent 3-point percentage over the last 10 games.
