Boxing Day finds Central Division rivals the Chicago Bulls and Milwaukee Bucks matching up. Chicago enters having lost twice after going on a seven game win streak. The Bucks lost to Charlotte in their last outing, but may have also lost their star to injury in the process.
Last season, the Bucks won three of the teams four matches, but the Bulls won the last game of the series and took the first meeting this season. The Bulls hold the all-time record having bested the Bucks 130 of their 241 matches.
After a seven game win streak the Bulls have lost their last two games versus Cavaliers and Celtics. Chicago fought in both games, but the top squads won’t be surprised by the Bulls efforts any longer.
Much of the improvement coincided with the return of Nikola Mirotic to the lineup, yet the improvement of Kris Dunn has also factored.
On the season the Bulls rank 29th offensively and 23rd on defense, however in the last 9 games Chicago ranks 11th offensively and fifth defensively.
Zach LaVine continues to rehab his knee and is projected to return in the New Year. His presence could be pivotal if the Bulls continue to win after such a slow start. Cameron Payne (foot) is out recovering from yet another foot surgery.
Replicating his efforts from last season Giannis Antetokounmpo is leading his team in every key category except blocks. Antetokounmpo averages 29.5 points, 4.6 assists, 10.5 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 54.2 percent from the field. The bad news for Milwaukee however is their star hurt his knee in the last game and may not be able to suit up tonight.
The initial upswing which came following the trade to acquire Eric Bledsoe has leveled off with the Bucks registering a 5-5 record in their last ten games. Although the Bucks got a big lift with the win over the Cavaliers and are building an offensive chemistry it’s coming at the cost of the defense. To wit, in the last ten games the Bucks rank third offensively but dead last on defense.

Free Chicago Bulls vs. Milwaukee Bucks NBA Prediction: Take the over
With uncertainty about whether Antetokounmpo suits up it’s difficult to suggest the Bucks will cover the spread, especially given how the Bulls have been playing. Therefore, I’m inclined to go with the over since both squads have been lighting up the score board of late.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bet the over
Even if Giannis does suit up it stands to reason he won’t be 100 percent, and the Bulls will be anxious to get back in the win column.
