Zach LaVine is averaging 27.5 points and 4.9 assists while Nikola Vucevic is averaging 22.9 points and 10.3 rebounds.

The Chicago Bulls are allowing 34.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 45 rebounds per game.
The Minnesota Timberwolves need a win after losing nine of their last 12 games. The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 110.3 points on 44.2 percent shooting and allowing 117.7 points on 48.3 percent shooting. Karl-Anthony Towns is averaging 24.9 points and 4.5 assists while D’Angelo Russell is averaging 19.7 points and 5.1 assists.

The Bulls are 19-7 ATS in their last 26 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Timberwolves are 17-35 ATS in their last 52 home games and 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games as an underdog. The under is 11-5 in Bulls last 16 overall. The under is 5-2 in Timberwolves last 7 home games. The Bulls are 0-6 ATS in the last 6 meetings in Minnesota and 3-8 ATS in the last 11 meetings.
The Chicago Bulls aren't nearly as attractive in the favorite role as they are as underdogs, but they are 18-7 against the spread on the road. The Minnesota Timberwolves are losing their last five games by an average of 4.8 points while allowing 50.5 percent shooting, and they lose at home by an average of seven points. It's hard to back the Timberwolves with confidence these days. I'll lay the reasonable chalk with the Bulls on the road.
