The Chicago Bulls are on the verge of getting eliminated as they head to Milwaukee for Game 5 against the Bucks tonight. Tip-off is scheduled for 10:00 pm ET on TNT. Continue reading below to see my same game parlay.

We also have predictions on the side and total for both of tonight’s Game 5s, so be sure to check those out.

Let’s get into the Bulls vs Bucks game now!

Giannis Antetokounmpo over 13.5 rebounds (-102)

Nikola Vucevic to score 25+ points (+285)

DeMar DeRozan to score 30+ points (-122)

Parlay odds: +1631

Giannis Antetokounmpo over 13.5 rebounds (-102)

Giannis has had only 1 bad rebounding game in the series far, which was in Game 3 when he grabbed just 7 but the Bucks won by 30 points anyway. In the 3 other games, he went over 13.5 easily, getting 16, 18 and 17. He’s averaging 14.5 per game through 4 games, which is up from his 13.5 average during the regular season against the Bulls.

You’d normally think the Bucks getting Brook Lopez back from injury would take some of the pressure off Giannis when it comes to cleaning the glass, but that hasn’t been the case as the Greek freak has asserted himself as one of the most dominant rebounders in the game. Milwaukee is averaging 52 boards per game in this series, so I believe Giannis is more than capable of getting 14 of them tonight as the Bucks try to close it out on their own floor.

Nikola Vucevic to score 25+ points (+285)

With Zach LaVine entering health and safety protocols, Vucevic instantly becomes the 2nd scoring option on this Bulls team. We still don’t know if Alex Caruso will play either, he had a head injury in Game 4 and now he has to clear concussions protocols if he is to be available in tonight’s game. As a team, the Bulls haven’t had the best of series scoring-wise, but in their lone win so far in the series they scored 114 points in Game 2 played at the Fiserv Forum.

Vucevic has played way better in the 2 road games than the previous 2 played at the United Center. He opened the series with back-to-back 24-point games, with LaVine not playing tonight the Bulls will need him to up that total to possibly even 30 points. Although he’s shooting just 43% from the field through 4 games, his game isn’t predicated on just one move on offense, so I think he has plenty of weapons in his arsenal to get going tonight.

DeMar DeRozan to score 30+ points (-122)

DeRozan is averaging a modest 23.3 points by his standards in this series so far. That is way down from the 31.3 points per game he averaged in the 4 regular-season meetings against the Bucks. His percentages are down across the board and he is yet to make a three in the series from 9 attempts. However, with the Bulls fighting to stay alive in this series, I think that should bring out the best out of DeMar.

DeRozan had 41 points in the Game 2 win on the road, so he has proven he’s capable of putting up numbers. At this point of the series, the pressure is off the Bulls. Nobody is expecting them to win anymore, so DeRozan can relax and just focus on playing his game. I think it’s time he finally makes the most out of Middleton not playing and punish the Bucks both at the basket, but also from the mid-range.
