The Chicago Bulls invade the Fiserv Forum to battle the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday night.

The Chicago Bulls have been in decent form as they’ve won four of their last seven games overall, but they will be looking to bounce back here after they ran into the Hawks in a 123-105 loss last night. Zach LaVine led the team with 26 points and six assists, DeMar DeRozan added 21 points while Nikola Vucevic tallied 19 points with 10 rebounds and three assists. As a team, the Bulls shot 46 percent from the field and seven of 31 from the 3-point line as they struggled right from the start and were always fighting an uphill battle after allowing 36 points in the first quarter. Coby White had a rough night as he scored just seven points on three of 10 shooting off the bench.

Meanwhile, the Milwaukee Bucks have been in red-hot form as they’ve won seven of their last nine games overall and they will be aiming for a third straight win after routing the Wizards in a 140-128 road win last night. Jrue Holiday led the team with 26 points, nine rebounds and 10 assists, Giannis Antetokounmpo added 28 points with 11 rebounds and 10 assists while Brook Lopez chipped in with 20 points and five blocks. As a team, the Bucks shot 54 percent from the field and a sizzling 23 of 42 from the 3-point line as they exploded for 43 points in the second quarter to take a 13-point lead into halftime before they poured in another 39 points in the third quarter to put the game to bed early.

Looking at the betting trends, the Bulls are 5-1-1 ATS in their last seven road games, 1-5 ATS in their last six games playing on zero days rest and 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games overall. The Bucks are 2-5 ATS in their last seven home games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games playing on zero days rest and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games following a win of more than 10 points.

Head to head, the under is 12-4 in the last 16 meetings overall and the Bulls are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Milwaukee.

The Bucks were able to rest a couple players last night, but they could have Khris Middleton back for this one, so definitely check the lineups before tipoff. There is always a chance that the Bucks decide to rest a few players again with their position all but secured, so I’ll lean towards the Bulls who are 10-4 ATS in the last 14 meetings in Milwaukee.
