Two of the worse teams of each conference and of the whole league are clashing tonight, when the last in the West Phoenix Suns (17-54), looking to turn their latest victory into a streak, are hosting the third-worse in the East Chicago Bulls (19-52), who have won only once in their last 8 games and want to bounce back.

Spread: Phoenix Suns -3
Phoenix Suns have a 17-54 record (33-38 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the last place of the West. In their last game they snapped a two-game losing streak by winning on the road against the Pelicans with a 138-136 score in overtime, beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Devin Booker with 25.5 ppg, adding 4.1 boards and a team high 6.8 dimes per game. He is followed by TJ Warren with 18 ppg and 4 boards per game he is out with an injury.
Chicago Bulls have a 19-52 record (31-39-1 against the spread) so far this season and currently sit in the third to last place of the East. They have lost seven of their last eight matches and in their last game they lost on the road against the Kings with a 102-129 score, not beating the odds. They are led in scoring by Zach LaVine with 23.8 ppg, adding 4.6 boards and 4.5 dimes per game. He is followed by Lauri Markkanen with 18.7 ppg and a team high 8.9 boards per game.
In their previous meeting earlier this season the Bulls won at home with a 124-116 score. Suns have a 10-24 home record, while the Bulls are 11-24 on the road. Suns are better offensively, scoring 107.2 ppg to Bulls’ 105.2, while Bulls are better defensively, allowing 113.3 ppg to Suns’ 116.1. Both teams have almost identical field goal percentage (45.7% to 45.5%), while Bulls have a better 3-point percentage (35.6% to 32.9%). Suns are better in dimes made (24 to 22.1), while Bulls are better both in boards grabbed (42.4 to 40.5) and in turnovers committed (13.8 to 15.3). Suns are the favorite at home and Vegas odds give them a -3 spread and expect them to beat the odds for the home win.
