Milwaukee is coming from a subpar offensive game at home against Orlando, in a game where they rested Giannis and were on a poor physical spot, hence the egg. However, the Bucks will be now in a bounce back spot, with Giannis back and facing a very favorable matchup in the Bulls. Chicago is coming from a game against Washington, where they allowed 70 points in the paint, with the Wizards shooting 31-41 FG at the rim. The Bulls used Markkanen at the Center position during considerable stretches of that game and this will result in a massive disaster against the fired up Bucks. On the other side, Chicago has been playing on a very fast pace and they have now better perimeter shooting with Porter in the rotation. Therefore, I'll be taking the Over in here.
