Milwaukee Bucks Betting

The Bucks are playing at a high level right now, and they are doing it without injured forward Khris Middleton. There’s a reason why Giannis Antetokounmpo remains the top choice by most online sportsbooks for this year’s regular-season MVP. The Greek Freak is averaging a career-best 30.1 PPG on 58% FG. No doubt he’s going to have another big night in the Windy City after dropping 38 points and 16 boards vs. the Bulls last week.

Players to Watch: Giannis Antetokounmpo (30.1 PPG, 14.3 RPG, 6.5 APG), Eric Bledsoe (17.0 PPG, 5.3 RPG, 5.2 APG), Brook Lopez (10.9 PPG, 4.8 RPG, 1.3 APG)

Chicago Bulls Betting

Frustrations are mounting in each loss for the Chicago Bulls. Zach Lavine is putting the blame on himself for the Bulls’ rough start that has seen them losing five of their last seven games. In Saturday’s loss to the Kyrie Irving-less Nets, Chicago shot a cold 35 percent from the field and 23.1 percent from beyond the arc. They also allowed the Nets to score 43 big points in the fourth quarter, including 20 from Spencer Dinwiddie.

Players to Watch: Zach LaVine (21.6 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 4.2 APG), Lauri Markkanen (14.5 PPG, 7.7 RPG, 1.8 APG), Wendell Carter, Jr. (13.6 PPG, 9.8 RPG, 0.8 APG)

Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls Betting Picks

The Bucks, one of the NBA future odds favorites, will enter Monday’s tussle with the Bulls as a hands-down favorite at -290. Even without Middleton, Milwaukee showed they can manufacture extra points because of their depth, and of course, an unstoppable force of nature named Giannis.

Moneyline: The Bucks are 6-2 SU on the road and 8-3 SU as favorites. They also swept the Bulls in their last three meetings by double-digit margins.

ATS: The Bucks are only 4-4 ATS on the road, but a 7-point handicap won’t present any problem for this top-tier Eastern Conference team.

TOTALs: The total for this game will go OVER 231 points. The Bucks are the best offensive team in the NBA at 118 points per game. The Bulls are 20th at 107 points per contest. The last time these two teams met, they scored a combined 229 points.

Score Prediction: 127-117 Bucks
