Bet on Bulls vs. Bucks

Chicago went on a roll after the return of Nikola Mirotic from his facial injury, winning seven in a row. But the Bulls have finally hit the skids, dropping a pair of games to tough opponents on the road in Cleveland and Boston. The Bulls only lost by three at the Cavs before being blown out by the Celtics. Milwaukee has been up-and-down, but the last loss can be attributed to the absence of Antetokounmpo. With him back in the fold, don't expect Chicago to have an answer. Take the Bucks to cover at home.
