PointsBet Projects Bulls to Take Step Back With 2022-23 Win Total

Artūras Karnišovas and Marc Eversley might believe in the power of continuity, but, when it comes to the Chicago Bulls, PointsBet clearly does not. 

The online sportsbook released projected regular-season win totals for nearly every NBA team Saturday. The Bulls, who punched a ticket to the playoffs for the first time in five years on the strength of their 46 wins last season, had their bar set at 41.5 victories.

With the exception of the Hawks, the teams projected to finish with better records than the Bulls — the Heat, Celtics, Sixers, Bucks, and Raptors — are the same ones who did so last season. Meaning oddsmakers believe the Bulls will vie for the last two postseason slots with the Cavs, Hornets, and Wizards.

That the Bulls are projected to take a step back next season isn’t entirely surprising. It remains to be seen if Lonzo Ball will be healthy enough to participate in training camp, let alone survive an entire season. 

And while Karnisovas and Eversley promised to covet rim protection and shooting in free agency, they came away with Andre Drummond and Goran Dragic. Yes, the pair of veterans should bolster the team’s bench. But their skill sets don’t necessarily jive with what the Bulls’ brass said they had their sights set on.
