The under is 5-0 in the last five Bulls games following an ATS loss. The over is 5-1 in the last six meetings.


The Bucks are 1-4 ATS in their last five home meetings verfsus Chicago. Milwaukee is 5-0 ATS in its last five games following an ATS loss.


The rebuilding Bulls are heavy underdogs and I'm willing to take the 14 points plus the hook. Milwaukee hasn't been playing its best basketball as of late with losses in three of their last five games. As long as Chicago can stick around for a few quarters, it should have a good chance to cover here. The backdoor cover could also be in play if the Bucks throw their backups in during the fourth quarter.. Regardless, this spread seems a bit too high for me even after the Bulls' no-show last game.
