The Bulls are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 Monday games. The Thunder are 7-1-1 ATS in their last 9 home games and 14-5-1 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The over is 4-1-1 in Bulls last 6 overall. The under is 4-0 in Thunder last 4 overall. The over is 4-1 in the last 5 meetings in Oklahoma City and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.

The Chicago Bulls are the better team and in the better situation, but they're also banged up and just lost to the Magic last night. On the end of a back to back, I'm not excited to back the Bulls in the favorite role. I'm just not. Yes, the Oklahoma City Thunder have issues of their own, but they're also 14-7-1 against the spread at home and 29-16-1 against the spread on the season. If forced to pick this contest, give me OKC at home and the free bucket.
