The Bulls’ revamped roster might actually be good enough to reach the postseason.

The website has the Bulls in the running for a low seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The site set the team’s over/under for victories at 42.5. The Bulls’ odds to make the playoffs currently sit at: Yes -155, No +125 (odds imply a 60.8% chance the team will make the playoffs).

According to the site’s current projections, this would be the 2022 playoff field:

East playoff teams (Seeds 1-8): Nets, Bucks, 76ers, Heat, Hawks, Celtics, Bulls/Pacers/Knicks (a combination of two of the last three)

West playoff teams (Seeds 1-8): Lakers, Suns, Jazz, Warriors, Mavericks, Nuggets, Clippers, Trail Blazers.

The Bucks and the Nets, at 99% each, have the best odds of reaching the postseason.
