Pistons vs. Bulls Best NBA Player Props Tonight
DeMar DeRozan Over 25.5 Points
DeRozan missed his previous three games with a quad strain, but he’s good to go today. In 10 games prior to leaving early against Boston, DeRozan averaged 28.2 points on 49.5% shooting from the field.
The Pistons feature one of the game’s worst defenses. They’re especially leaky against two-point attempts, the area in which DeRozan excels. Even if DeRozan is a little rusty with his jumper, he should be able to make up the difference at the line.
Jaden Ivey Over 2.5 Turnovers
Ivey was thrust into a larger role in the wake of Cade Cunningham’s season-ending injury. It’s great for the long-term development of Ivey, but he will have his ups and downs, as most rookies do.
Among those downs is a propensity to turn the ball over. He’s averaging 3.3 turnovers in a modest 30 minutes across his last 10 games. Chicago, meanwhile, is top 10 in steals and forcing turnovers.

Isaiah Stewart Over 8.5 Rebounds
Leading rebounder Jalen Duren missed his last five games and is listed as questionable (ankle). Even if he plays, it’s reasonable to expect him to be limited – either physically or per a minutes restriction.
Should Duren miss his sixth consecutive contest though, that opens a path to more glass-cleaning duty for Stewart, who is averaging 8.6 boards across his last seven.
Zach LaVine Over 8.5 Rebounds + Assists
We wouldn’t describe LaVine as “prolific” in the rebounding or assisting departments, but he routinely does a good job filling the stat sheet. He’s averaging 5.4 boards and 4.5 assists over his last 10.
That includes going Over on seven of those occasions. The potential absence of Duren theoretically frees the opportunity for LaVine to corral an extra errant shot or two. Meanwhile, he’ll welcome his running mate, DeRozan, back into the fold, setting the stage for him to deposit a few dimes.
