The Nuggets are 2-6 ATS in their last 8 road games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Bulls are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 Monday games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The over is 39-19-2 in Nuggets last 60 overall. The under is 4-1 in Bulls last 5 Monday games. The Nuggets are 4-1 ATS in the last 5 meetings in Chicago and 8-2 ATS in the last 10 meetings.

The Denver Nuggets are playing some decent ball lately, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 8.4 points while shooting 49.8 percent from the field. The Chicago Bulls aren't as good at home as they are on the road, as they actually lose at home by an average of 2.9 points. We've made money on the Bulls this season and I like them a lot in the underdog role, but this doesn't feel like a good spot. Give me the Nuggets and the reasonable chalk.
