Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls prediction

The Milwaukee Bucks are on the end of a back to back, so check the injury report to see if anybody sits out due to rest. Of course, the Bucks are already without Khris Middleton due to an ankle injury. The Bucks are a team I've faded a lot this season due to a lack of defense and failed covers. The Bucks are 24-34-1 ATS on the season. Still, the Bulls are an inconsistent team that's hard to trust most nights and have lost 7 of the last 10 meetings against the Bucks. I'd need more points to ride with the Bulls in this spot. The line is more than reasonable. Give me the Bucks and the soft line.
