Chicago Bulls' Projected Starting Lineup, Rotation And Best Futures Bet

There's a new sense of excitement around the 2021-22 Bulls.

  • The Chicago Bulls were aggressive this offseason adding new starters Lonzo Ball and DeMar DeRozan.

  • The top of the East is improved too, so there's actually value in taking the Bulls to miss the playoffs now at +156 on FanDuel.

  • Lonzo Ball (+4200 on FanDuel) and Colby White (+6500) are both sleepers to win Most Improved Player.

The Chicago Bulls made it clear this offseason they're tired of just rebuilding. In a deeper Eastern Conference, the Bulls are right there in the mix, bringing in talent like Lonzo Ball, DeMar DeRozan and and former Lakers sparkplug Alex Caruso.

Chicago is tired of waiting, and the Bulls apparently are too.

How The Bulls Lineup Might Look

The Bulls' starters seem to be pretty straight forward given who they already have locked in place, and who they brought in during the offseason.

Lonzo Ball is your starting point guard, looking for a fresh start on his third team in the league. He's also a possible sleeper to win the NBA Most Improved Player (+4200 on FanDuel). Coby White is +6500 to win Most Improved Player as well, and he'll likely back up Ball.

Franchise staple Zach LaVine is locked in at the two-guard, with Alex Caruso, (and that beautiful headband) likely the main backup there. Expect Caruso to split time between the two and the point as well.

DeRozan gets the start at small forward coming off his third-best shooting season of his career (49.5 percent from the field), with Troy Brown Jr. getting some minutes behind him.

The Bulls have high hopes for power forward Patrick Williams after a strong rookie year, and after starting all 71 of his games, Williams is locked in at the four, with Nikola Vucevic cemented as their starting center.

A Good Bulls Bet

The Bulls could be a playoff team, sure, but it won't be easy, even with these improvements. They went from -127 to make the playoffs on FanDuel to now -194, and +156 to miss; they're -165 and +135, respectively, on BetMGM.

Let's look at this team realistically, though, and not let any of the early excitement get us carried away. They're likely a low-seed playoff team and a bet that they don't even make the playoffs might be the smart play.

You could also consider their odds to make the play-in tournament at +110, which involves the seventh through 10th-best teams in the conference. That is a reasonable place for the Bulls to land this season given the other improvements around the Eastern Conference.
