UNDER a Hot Bet Between Bulls, Bucks

The Chicago Bulls have a new face of the franchise, and his name is Jimmy Butler. Butler erupted in the second half of Sunday’s 115-113 comeback win over Toronto in the form of 40 points – eclipsing Michael Jordan’s previous franchise record for points in a half – to lead the Bulls to their fourth win in as many games.

Shark Bites
  • The Bucks are 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games against the Bulls.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Bucks' last 10 games against the Bulls.
  • The Bulls are 2-11 ATS in their last 13 games after an ATS win.

Next up on the docket for Butler's Bulls is a home date with the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks, fresh off a surprising postseason appearance last year, were expected by many to take the leap in 2015-16 but that hasn’t happened. Jason Kidd’s club is sitting with an underwhelming 14-22 SU record heading into the tilt and are a woeful 5-15 on the road compared to Chicago’s blistering 14-5 home record.

When the Bulls and Bucks get together, low-scoring games are the norm. The UNDER has paid out in eight of the last 10 meetings between Chicago and Milwaukee.
