The Bulls (37-32-1 ATS) are 23-12 ATS at home and 14-20-1 ATS on the road. Chicago is 34-34-2 over/under but is 6-21 as an underdog and 16-18-1 away.
Milwaukee (33-38 ATS) has won eight of its last nine games – including six straight – before falling to the Minnesota Timberwolves, 119-138, on Saturday. The odds might change against the Bucks depending on the availability of All Star and Most Valuable player candidate Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was listed as day-to-day due to a sore knee. Fellow All Star Khris Middleton is out for the Bucks with a wrist injury.
Chicago has lost their last three games and seven of the last 10 after absorbing a 102-129 setback to the Phoenix Suns on Friday to fall to the No5 position but just 1 1/2 games ahead of No6 Cleveland (41-31).
