November 30, 2023

The Milwaukee Bucks hit the road and take on the Bulls Thursday night inside the United Center in Chicago, Illinois They tip it off starting at 8:00 pm. 

Bookmaker has listed the Bucks as a very solid eight point favorite. 

Milwaukee Bucks Betting Preview

The Bucks have ripped off three straight wins and have already created a little breathing room and distance from those trying to catch them in the Central Division. They are definitely the team to beat in that division and are one of the favorites to come out of the Eastern Conference. 

They are led by the face of the franchise and 28-year-old power forward Giannis Antetokounmpo who is averaging 30 points per game and is having a career year through 18 games already. He plays both ends of the floor and is a great defender and rim protector as well. 

The Bucks have a solid backcourt too and have great guard play which opens things up for Antetokounmpo to knock down open shots in the lane. The offense has been in sync from the start of the season and their record proves it. They connect on 58% from the floor including 37% from beyond the arc.

Milwaukee will look to push the pace and try to put this game away early, and if they can force some easy turnovers and get easy buckets in transition it could be a long night for the Bulls. 

Chicago Bulls Betting Preview

The Bulls have been in the midst of a poor losing streak and they have dropped five in a row and they have really buried themselves early on this season. It is a tough hole to dig out of and they now sit nine games under .500 for the season. They are just 5-14 on the season and have played poorly. 

They have had a ton of issues on both ends of the floor and their defense has been non-existent at times. They need to settle down and get into some type of offensive rhythm on the court. 

Chicago is led by veteran DeMar DeRozan, who can still pump in some points on a nightly basis as he is averaging 21 a game. He is dealing with a sore ankle and the Bulls would love to get him on the floor in this one. If not, they will need their bench to step up as they are dealing with some tough injuries. 

If the Bulls can not keep pace with the Bucks they will get blown out, they have to keep this game close heading into the fourth quarter and if they contain Antetokounmpo they have a shot in this game.
