The Chicago Bulls and the Memphis Grizzlies collide at the FedExForum on Tuesday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in fine form as they’ve won seven of their last 10 games overall and they will be aiming for a fourth straight win after routing the Spurs in a 128-104 win last night. Nikola Vucevic led the team with 22 points, 12 rebounds and four assists, Zach LaVine added 20 points, Andre Drummond tallied 21 points and 15 rebounds off the bench while DeMar DeRozan chimed in with 19 points and five assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 56 percent from the field and six of 22 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 39 points in the first quarter to take the early lead, before they dominated the fourth quarter by 38-19 to make it a complete blowout in the end.

Meanwhile, the Memphis Grizzlies have been in a real slump as they’ve lost eight of their last nine games overall and they will be hoping to snap a three-game skid after falling just short to the Raptors in a 106-103 loss on Sunday. Desmond Bane led the team with 26 points on 10 of 17 shooting, Jaren Jackson added 18 points with eight rebounds and four blocks while Santi Aldama chipped in with 15 points, six rebounds and four assists. As a team, the Grizzlies shot 48 percent from the field and 10 of 27 from the 3-point line as they got off to a quick start and built themselves a 15-point lead, but they never put the Raptors away and it cost them as they managed just 17 points in the fourth quarter to allow the Raptors off the hook in the end.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven games playing on zero days rest, 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record and 15-7-1 ATS in their last 23 games overall. The Grizzlies are 1-4 ATS in their last five games against a team with a losing record, 36-16-1 ATS in their last 53 home games and 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

Head to head, the under is 4-1-2 in the last seven meetings overall and the Bulls are 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings overall.

The Bulls are again missing Alex Caruso and Javonte Green, while the Grizzlies are still without Steven Adams who has been diagnosed with a PCL sprain in his right knee. The Bulls have been flying under the radar lately, but they’re coming into this meeting with plenty of momentum and they looked great in last night’s dominant win over the Spurs. Meanwhile, the Grizzlies have been mired in their worst slump of the season and they just blew a 15-point lead in a tough loss to the Raptors. I can see the Grizzlies snapping out of their funk with a much-needed win here, but the line seems a bit too generous, so I’ll lean towards the Bulls and the points in this spot.
