Basketball betting on Monday includes a matchup of young guards as last year’s Rookie of the Year Derrick Rose and the Bulls face the leading candidate for the award this year, Brandon Jennings and the Bucks.
It should be an exciting NBA betting contest. Basketball betting has Rose averaging 15.4 points and 5.1 assists per game this season while Jennings has been averaging 22.6 points per game. The Bulls could have a tough time stopping Jennings in this basketball betting matchup considering Kirk Hinrich is doubtful. He probably would have been guarding Jennings in this game. Rose is not very good defensively so if he is on Jennings then this could be another huge game for the rookie.
Chicago is on a three game winning streak against Milwaukee. Earlier this month the Bulls won a close 83-81 game at home. Luol Deng had a huge big game as he had Chicago’s first double-double since 2004 with 24 points and 20 rebounds. Brandon Jennings scored a game-high 25 points for Milwaukee. The Bulls have gone a combined 17-4 against Milwaukee since the 2004-2005 season. Chicago holds a 7-3 record against the Bucks at the Bradley Center. Last season the Bulls won the season series 3-1, with their only loss coming in Milwaukee. Last season against the Bucks, Luol Deng averaged 21 points per game and 6 rebounds per game while Derrick Rose averaged 18.5 points per game.
