The Denver Nuggets invade the United Center to do battle with the Chicago Bulls on Monday night.

The Denver Nuggets have really been struggling for form as they’ve lost seven of their past nine games, but they will be looking to build some momentum after taking down the Knicks in a 113-99 road win on Saturday. Nikola Jokic led the way with 32 points, 11 rebounds and five assists on 14 of 19 shooting, Zeke Nnaji added 21 points off the bench while Will Barton chipped in with 13 points, six rebounds and six assists. As a team, the Nuggets shot a healthy 52 percent from the field and 20 of 43 from the 3-point line as they set the tone with 60 points in the first half to take the early lead, before using a decisive 23-3 run to push the lead out to 30 points in the third quarter.

Meanwhile, the Chicago Bulls have been heating up lately as they’ve won four of their past five games and they will be eager to build on their current three-game win streak after sneaking past the Nets in a 111-107 road win on Saturday. Zach LaVine led the team with 31 points, eight rebounds and six assists, DeMar DeRozan added 29 points on 13 of 24 shooting while Nikola Vucevic and Ayo Dosunmu each scored 11 points. As a team, the Bulls shot 47 percent from the field and 10 of 31 from the 3-point line as they got off to a sluggish start and fell behind by 11 points, before rallying in the fourth quarter where they used a decisive 7-2 run early to take the lead for good.

Looking at the betting trends, the Nuggets are 2-6 ATS in their last eight road games, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 games against a team above .600 and 2-7 ATS in their last nine games overall. The Bulls are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games, 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games as a favorite and 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall.

Head to head, the over is 22-7 in the last 29 meetings overall, the Nuggets are 9-4 ATS in the last 13 meetings overall and the Nuggets are 5-1 ATS in the last six meetings in Chicago.

Alex Caruso is considered doubtful for this one, so the Bulls will once again be a little thin on the bench. The Nuggets were really struggling with the long ball before draining 20 of 43 from the 3-point line in Saturday’s win and they will be hard to beat again if they shoot like that. The Bulls look to have moved on from their struggles as they’re heating up with three straight wins and they are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 home games. The Nuggets are tempting, but with the line so short, I’ll stick with the Bulls to stay hot with another win and cover here.
