The Bulls are on the back to back on Monday night, but their 100-86 win over Detroit on Sunday night wasn’t the most exerting. Oddsmakers still like the Jazz by a lot here, making them -8.5 road favorites.
This also isn’t the same Utah team from earlier in the season though. The Jazz barely squeaked by Toronto 122-119 their last game, and the Raptors have now lost 8 straight games. Utah is 5-5 over their last 10.
The thing about Utah’s win over Toronto last game was that it was on Friday night. That means the Jazz have had the whole weekend off while Chicago plays on 0 days rest. The Bulls also played Friday, an OT loss at Denver so the fatigue could set in here for Billy Donovan’s team.
Utah could also be ready to get back home though. They wrap up a 5-game road trip tonight, and the last four will have been played East of the Mississippi. The Jazz are 2-2 on this swing so far.
One of the latest defeats for the Jazz was a 122-119 loss at Washington as -10.5 favorites. Bradley Beal and Russell Westbrook combined for 78 points for the Wizards, so Chicago’s back court could be in for one.
Utah also allowed 27/5/9 to Pascal Siakam, playing undersized at the C position, on Friday night. The Jazz still have a top 5 defense in the league, and if the Bulls outside shooters are fatigued they don’t stand a chance.
Schedule makers haven’t done the Bulls any favors over the weekend. Chicago had a home game on Wednesday, flew out West for one contest with Denver on Friday, then head back to Detroit on Sunday before a home game on Monday.
The good news is Chicago has played well in their last two. They had a win lined up in Denver before Jamal Murray forced OT with a last second three, and used strong bench play and a balanced attack to upend the Pistons.
Chicago could very easily be riding a 5-game winning streak right now. That started with wins over Oklahoma City and Toronto, but there’s also a 106-99 loss to the Spurs in there when the Bulls were outscored 39-19 in the fourth quarter.
Things will be tough against the Jazz on Monday night, but then again +8.5 is a lot of points against a Utah team that has been on the road the last 9 days and gets to head home after the game.

Free Utah Jazz vs. Chicago Bulls NBA Prediction:
Assuming Chicago isn’t too fatigued after a relatively easy win in Detroit on Sunday and a quick 45 minute flight back to the Windy City, +8.5 looks like too many here.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Bulls +8.5
The Jazz aren’t playing that well right now, and throw in the long road trip that wraps up on Monday a blowout really doesn’t seem likely.
