The Bulls are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games in October. The Redhawks are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games in October and 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games following a ATS win. The Bulls are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 meetings.
The RedHawks have lost seven straight games and have been beaten up by Buffalo in the last three meetings. I'm not sure how anybody can back the Redhawks here. Give me the Bulls by double digits.
