Chicago enters play having split over its last 10 games and is just 5-5 against the spread during that span as well. The Bulls are coming off back-to-back losses at Golden State and at Phoenix, the latter of which came as a 3.5-point road favorite. In that 115-97 loss to the Suns, Jimmy Butler returned after missing a week due to a heel injury and scored 20 points with three rebounds and six assists. Dwayne Wade also returned to action after being sick, scoring 18 points with six boards.

Minnesota has lost six of its last 10 games and is a dreadful 2-8 against the spread during that stretch. In their 122-106 loss to the Pelicans as a 5-point favorite on Friday, Karl-Anthony Towns scored 36 points with eight rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer. That makes nine straight games with at least 23 points for Towns.
