We go over some of the best betting options for Thursday’s matchup between the Bucks and Bulls.

Update: DeRozan and LaVine have both been ruled out for Chicago. The Bucks are now 10,5-point favorites, and the total comes in at 226. We still like Milwaukee as the ATS pick and the under on the total.


Tonight’s NBA schedule will feature the Milwaukee Bucks making the short trek south to battle the Chicago Bulls. Tipoff is scheduled for 8 p.m. ET.

Milwaukee (13-5) has won three straight heading into tonight’s contest and is coming off a 131-124 victory over the Heat Tuesday. This was a tight contest in the fourth quarter and the Bucks were able to pull ahead and put Miami away for the win. Meanwhile, Chicago (5-14) returns home riding a five-game losing streak and were torched in a 124-97 loss to the Celtics Tuesday. This game was well decided by halftime and by now, you’ve probably seen the clips of head coach Billy Donovan getting upset at the Celtics for running up the score as a means of improving their point differential for the NBA In-Season Tournament.

On the injury front, DeMar DeRozan (ankle), Zach LaVine (foot), and Alex Caruso (toe) are all listed as questionable for the Bulls.

Milwaukee enters the game as an 8.5-point favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, accompanied by a total of 229. The Bucks are a -335 moneyline favorite, making the Bulls a +280 underdog.

Pick ATS: Bucks -8.5

Chicago’s record against the spread basically mirrors its actual record at 5-13-1, which is the worst in the league heading into tonight’s contest. That’s reflected by each loss during this losing streak coming by double-digits. With the Bulls’ primary players all dinged up heading into this contest, I don’t think the Bucks will have any problem putting Chicago down by a wide margin.

Over/Under: Under 229

This is a battle between one of the best offenses in the league and one of the worst offenses in the league. Chicago is averaging just 106.2 points per game on 44.4% shooting and I think it’ll drag the total down with another poor shooting night from the field. Take the under.
