BETTING TRENDS

Chicago are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games against Milwaukee.

Chicago are 2-18 SU in their last 20 games against Milwaukee.

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Milwaukee's last 8 games against Chicago.

Milwaukee are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games at home.

Prediction

The Bucks are one step away from round 2 where they'll be facing the Boston Celtics but the Bucks have struggled to cover the spread in their last 5 games at home. I'm not saying they won't win this game but this a big number to cover. The Bulls are 2-0 this season when the spread was +10.5 to +13.5. Bucks win but the Bulls will cover.

PICK: Bulls +12 (-110)
