Donovan Mitchell is one of the most unstoppable scorers in the league, as he is averaging nearly 26 points per contest this season.

Mitchell has missed some time recently, but in his two games back, he has averaged 29.5 points per game on over 58 percent shooting from the field.

Mitchell has hit the Over of this line 23 times this season, as he has the ability to create his own shot from behind the arc or get to the rim for some crafty finishes.

In going up against one of the best teams in the league in the Golden State Warriors, expect him to come out with some extra fire!

Dejounte Murray OVER 21.5 Points

Dejounte Murray has been an absolute rock for the San Antonio Spurs this season, as he is proving that he can be the next big star for this historically great franchise.

Although he came up short of this line in four of his last six games, it wasn’t by much, and he is averaging 25.0 points per game over his last three games.

On the season, Murray has hit the Over 20 times on this particular line.

There is always a threat of him being more of a playmaker than a scorer, but given his recent success, it seems reasonable he can get at least 22 points in this one.

DeMar DeRozan OVER 28.5 Points

DeMar DeRozan has been sizzling hot all season long, but especially in his last eight games, as he is averaging 31.9 points per game on nearly 58 percent shooting from the floor.

In his last three games, he has scored over 30 points, with a 45 point masterpiece coming just three days ago against the Philadelphia 76ers.

DeRozan just has a way of utilizing the mid-range game in an era where it seems to be dying out. He seems to understand that if you don’t want to guard the mid-range, I’ll just beat you from there.

It also helps that the Chicago Bulls surround him with excellent shooters.

Jarrett Allen OVER 26.5 Points + Rebounds

Jarrett Allen has been absolutely sensational for the Cleveland Cavaliers all season long, as many people believe he was snubbed from the All-Star Game this year.

His raw numbers suggest that, as he’s averaging 16.2 points on nearly 67 percent shooting and 11.1 rebounds per game this season.

In his last two games, Allen is averaging 22.0 points and 19.5 rebounds per game, suggesting that he has a little extra motivation from being snubbed from the All-Star Game.

It never feels good to feel snubbed or disrespected, but Allen is channeling his energy the right way. By killing it on the court!

LaMelo Ball UNDER 22.5 Points

LaMelo Ball has been struggling to shoot the ball recently, as he’s averaging just 14.0 points per game on 34.1 percent shooting.

Ball is a sensational player in his own right, as he was just named an All-Star with this being just his second year in the league.

However, growing pains are a part of the game, and Ball seems to be experiencing just that.

Maybe he can shake those off in this upcoming game against the Chicago Bulls, but the Bulls are going to make him earn each and every bucket, and Ball doesn’t have the momentum shifting in the right direction to overcome that.
