The Bulls are 7-21-1 ATS in their last 29 games playing on 1 days rest and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Timberwolves are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games and 13-5 ATS in their last 18 Sunday games. The over is 3-1-1 in Bulls last 5 overall. The over is 10-3 in Timberwolves last 13 Sunday games. The Bulls are 1-7 ATS in the last 8 meetings in Minnesota.

I'm not excited to get behind the Chicago Bulls in any shape or form. However, this line tells me the Minnesota Timberwolves are likely going to be down Russell and Gobert, which means they'll be without 3 of their top 4 players. If the Bulls' cant win in that situation, something is wrong with this team to a degree larger than we originally thought. It's Bulls or pass for me given the Timberwolves injuries.
