Suns at Bulls odds, lines, picks and predictions

Prediction

Suns 114, Bulls 107

Money line

The Suns enter Monday night with the league’s best road record at 20-5, but the Bulls are much better at home than on the road. They are 19-9 at United Center, which is the best home record in the Eastern Conference.

The Suns have won nine of their last 10 road games and have won three straight matchups over the Bulls.

It’s chalky, but I LEAN SUNS (-270).

Against the spread

The Suns have covered the spread in six of their last 10 games. They are 16-9 ATS on the road. In each of their last six road wins, they have won by at least eight points.

The Bulls are 17-9 ATS in their home arena. They have covered the spread in five of their last 10 games.

Like with the spread, this is a lean. I LEAN SUNS -6.5 (-108).

Over/Under

The Suns are 23-28-1 this season overall, but they play more low-scoring games on the road. They are 8-16 O/U on the road this season.

The Bulls have scored 120 or more in five of their last six games and have allowed 115 or more points in six straight.

The Suns have held five of their last 10 road opponents to under 100 points and eight of their last 10 to 108 or fewer.

Take UNDER 228.5 (-110).
