The Chicago Bulls and the Milwaukee Bucks do battle at the Fiserv Forum on Wednesday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in rough shape as they’ve lost six of their last eight games overall, but they will be eager to build some momentum after snapping a four-game skid with a 121-107 home win over the Celtics. DeMar DeRozan led the team with 28 points, eight rebounds and four assists, Zach LaVine added 22 points with five assists while Patrick Williams chipped in with 17 points on six of nine shooting. As a team, the Bulls shot 51 percent from the field and 14 of 29 from the 3-point line as they stormed out of the gates and exploded for 35 points in the second quarter to take a 13-point lead into halftime, which ballooned to 21 points in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in decent shape as they’ve split their last eight games and they will be looking to stay hot after sneaking past the Trail Blazers in a 119-111 home win on Monday. Giannis Antetokounmpo led the team with 37 points, seven rebounds and six assists on 16 of 24 shooting, Jrue Holiday and Grayson Allen each scored 17 points while Brook Lopez chipped in with 14 points and five blocks. As a team, the Bucks shot 54 percent from the field and nine of 28 from the 3-point line as they kept pace with the Trail Blazers in a tight contest, until they took control in the third quarter where they held the Trail Blazers to just 18 points to open a valuable 17-point lead.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 5-14 ATS in their last 19 games against a team above .600 and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall. The Bucks are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games against a team with a losing record, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the under is 5-0 in the last five meetings overall, the Bulls are 2-6 ATS in the last eight meetings overall and the Bulls are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Milwaukee.

The Bulls are keeping an eye on Goran Dragic and Kostas Antetokounmpo who are both listed as day to day, while the Bucks are still missing Wesley Matthews and Khris Middleton. The Bulls were really struggling to win games before their impressive upset win over the red-hot Celtics, while the Bucks have been a more consistent team with Antetokounmpo leading the way. I’m sure the Bucks will be too good for the Bulls at home, but the Bulls are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings in Milwaukee and I think we’re getting just enough free points from the bookies in this spot.
