Bulls vs Bucks 4/17/22 NBA Playoffs Game 1 Picks, Predictions and Prop Bets

Bulls vs Bucks 4/17/22 NBA picks, predictions and player prop bets for this Easter Sunday basketball game.

Bulls vs Bucks Odds: 

This Chicago Bulls vs Milwaukee Bucks game is set to tipoff at 6:30pm et at Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee.

The NBA odds have the Bucks as a -10 point favorite against the spread with the total at 230 points.

69% of The NBA Betting Public are still on Milwaukee as the double digit home favorite for this game 1.

Bulls vs Bucks Game Preview: 

The Bulls come into this matchup only winning 4 out of their last 10 games. For them to get back on track, they need their x-factor Demar DeRozan to have a monster game 1.

DeRozan finished the regular season averaging 27.9 points, 5.2 rebounds, and 4.9 assists per game. On the road he’s averaging an impressive 49% from the the field and 38% from 3-point land.

In his last 5 games against the Bucks, DeRozan has averaged 29.6 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.8 assists, so you should see similar numbers put up in this matchup.

The Bulls are currently fourth in the league when it comes to team three point percentage and the Bucks are right below them at the fifth spot.

If they want any chance to get the upset win or at least cover that double digit spread then defensively, Chicago will need to slow down Milwaukee outside shooting while also finish the game shooting over the 40% mark from 3-point land.

The good news for the Bulls is that Alex Caruso is expected to try to give it a go for this playoff game after missing over a week of action dealing with that lower back injury.

Chicago are 1-16 straight up in their last 17 games against Milwaukee and the Bulls are 3-10 against the spread in their last 13 games on the road.

The Bucks are 7-0 straight up in their last 7 games when playing at home against the Bulls and the total has gone under in 6 of Milwaukee’s last 8 games against Chicago.
