The Spurs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 Monday games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 road games. The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 home games and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a S.U. loss. The Spurs are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Chicago.
The Bulls are a legit basketball team that has actually played the Spurs well over the years and has split the last 10 meetings. I'll gladly take the points at home, as Chicago has a good shot to win outright.
