Pick, Prediction, & Preview:
Chicago Bulls vs Milwaukee Bucks
The Bucks will welcome the Bulls to Fiserv Forum as they are coming off a loss against the Grizzlies while the Bulls will look to bounce back after a blowout loss against the Celtics. Game tips off at 9:30 PM ET.
Chicago Bulls 's Latest Performance :
The Bulls will be looking to bounce back after losing to the Celtics by 29 points. They are now 2-5 on the road and 4-11 on the season. Zach LaVine’s 15-game streak end as he only managed to score 10 points on 3-for-11 shooting. While he didn’t shoot well, he also was facing a Celtics defense bent on double-teaming him and making other Bulls players beat them. He is expected to have a better scoring performance against the Bucks. Shaq Harrison scored a season-high 16 points with six rebounds he is getting the minutes ahead of Payne which is a great sign for a player that went undrafted. Ryan Arciadiacono has been solid all around as the starter, so Harrison is likely looking at minutes around 20 for the next couple of weeks. All the Bulls can do now is keep their head down and focus on the next game because the Celtics were a better team and the Bulls had no answer.
Milwaukee Bucks 's Latest Performance :
The Bucks will be looking to bounce back after the loss against Memphis that came down to the very last shot. The Bucks did go on a 27-4 run but could not get the job done at home. Leading the way for the Bucks was Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was 10 of 14 from the field and made 11 of 12 free throws, finished with 31 points. Middleton had 25 points in the loss. Outside of those two, the Bucks struggled to find consistency on offense, and as a team, went 9 of 35 on three-pointers, including 4 of 23 in the first half. The Bucks will have to do a better job starting out games if they don’t want to find themselves in a deep hole like they did against the Grizzlies. Eric Bledsoe scored 15 points as he was the catalyst in the Bucks 27-4 as he played some impressive defense. He will face a tough task in his next game as he will have to contain Zach Lavine.

Against The Spread Selection: Milwaukee Bucks
My reason for the pick :
The Bucks should be able to beat out the Bulls in this game as they are aware that Lavine is the Bulls only scorer on the team so all they need to do is contain him just like the Celtics did and that would put them in a great position to win at home. Bledsoe will have to play a great game defensively if the Bucks want to come out with a win at home. For the Bulls to get better they will have to wait for Mauri to comeback as he could be the second scorer that the Bulls need.
