The Milwaukee Bucks will look to improve on their NBA-best 45-14 record when they face the Chicago Bulls on the road on Monday night. Winners of 10 of their last 11 contests, the ​Bucks are 8-point favorites to beat Chicagoaccording to FanDuel Sportsbook.

With Giannis Antetokounmpo listed as ​questionable for tonight's contest, Milwaukee seemingly goes from a slam dunk pick to one all bettors should ponder. With that in mind, here are some expert predictions for tonight's Bucks-Bulls game.

Bucks vs Bulls Predictions


Jake Walker, of BlitzPredict, is firmly in Chicago's corner when it comes to the spread, noting two trends that could point to the Bulls covering. Chicago is 8-3 against the spread (ATS) in its last 11 games after scoring 125-plus points in the previous contest. The Bulls are also 7-3 ATS in their last 10 home games against teams with a winning road record.

Nikos Lagouretos, of, seemingly believes Milwaukee will come out on top, noting that the Bucks won by 13 the last time they played in Chicago. However, he believes that the Bulls will cover the spread against the division-rival Bucks, noting that they've played much better at home of late.
