Suns at Bulls picks and predictions

Prediction

Suns 109, Bulls 101

Moneyline

The Suns are only 13-19 on the road this season, but have won 6 of their last 8 road games. They are 13-5 in their last 18 games. The Bulls, despite winning 3 of their last 4 games, have lost 7 of their last 10 games.

With Durant in the lineup with Booker, the Suns will be hard to defend as they combined for 60 points in their 1st game together. But there isn’t any value to bet the Suns on the moneyline here.

PASS.

Against the spread

The Suns blew out the Bulls at home in November. They are 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 games. The Bulls are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games following an ATS loss.

Bet SUNS -5.5 (-105).

Over/Under

The Under is 7-3 in the Suns’ last 10 games. It is 4-0 in their last 4 road games and 4-1 in their last 5 road games against teams with winning home records.

The Under is 5-0 in the Bulls’ last 5 road games.

BET UNDER 222.5 (-112).
