Best bets on Bulls vs Bucks
Handicap: Bookmakers at 1xbet see the Bucks as the favorites here. The Bucks are being favored to win again after their incredible 30 points win in Game 3. I do agree with the bookmakers here considering how formidable the Bucks looked in the last game. However, I believe the Bulls will come up with a much better reply than they did in Game 3. I’d take them with a handicap of +4.5. (Handicap 2 +4.5 for 1.97)
Individual Total 1: The bookmakers at 22bet believe that the Chicago Bulls’ Under/Over Total of 107.5 have the odds of 1.90. The Bulls scored just 81 in the last game, following a 114 points performance in Game 2. They only scored 86 in Game 1 so yes, it can be risky to pick the Bulls total to go “Over” 107.5. However, I see DeMar DeRozan getting and the Bulls going “Over” 107.5. (Individual Total 1 Over 107.5 for 1.90)
Player Props: DeRozan followed a 41 points performance with an 11 points night. He had 18 in Game 1 so yes, he can be alternating in terms of having big scoring nights. I believe DeMar will pop off here and score at least 30. And although it is risky I believe, DeRozan will go “Over” 28.5 Points here. (bet365: Player Props: Player Points: DeMar DeRozan Over 28.5 for 1.90)

The Bulls once again disappointed their fans in Game 3 as they shot below 40% and their three-point percentage was around 26%. DeMar DeRozan didn't attempt many shots and followed 41 points by an 11 points effort. If DeRozan doesn't get going, the chances of a Bulls win diminishes more often than not. On the other hand, Nikola Vucevic has been a strong contributor on the scoring and rebounding end but can be a bit lost defensively. Zach LaVine has been a factor offensively but he is not the same scorer since the arrival of DeRozan. Patrick Williams shot 0/9 from the floor in the last game while Coby White has struggled a lot.
What made the last Bucks victory special is that the scoring balance was terrific as at least four players scored 16 points and the highest scorer Grayson Allen had 22 points. Jrue Holiday hasn't had a huge offensive game but he has done a decent job of supplying points, rebounds, and assists. Bobby Portis did a great job in Game 3 with 18 points and 16 rebounds meanwhile Antetokounmpo didn't have one of his big scoring nights but continued to be a factor in the overall scheme. Pat Connaughton has not gotten going, and shot just 2/7 from the three-point line in the last game. The Bucks have been playing without Khris Middleton and they do have the tools to be successful without him.
