Gray Gutfreund has a Nikola Vucevic and Khris Middleton same-game parlay for tonight's Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls matchup that you'll want to tail.

Milwaukee Bucks vs. Chicago Bulls Same Game Parlay: Count on Nikola Vucevic and Khris Middleton to Score

The Chicago Bulls are hosting the Milwaukee Bucks this evening as both squads gear up to make postseason runs. The 5-point spread on this contest indicates a game that should remain close throughout, which would lead to the top players on each team seeing enough playing time to have decent games. The game's O/U of 234 total points is the 3rd highest total of the 12 games on tonight's slate so a shootout is certainly possible here.

With plenty of points to be scored in Chicago tonight, I love the value on Nikola Vucevic and Khris Middleton to get the job done for us.

Milwaukee Bucks vs Chicago Bulls Same-Game Parlay (-122) (Bet $122 to Win $100)

*Odds Available at FanDuel at Time of Publishing*

Leg 1: Nikola Vucevic 15+ Points

Leg 2: Khris Middleton 15+ Points

Nikola Vucevic had a rocky start to the season as he was forced to adjust to playing alongside both Zach LaVine and DeMar DeRozan. However, Vooch has rounded into form recently and has been consistently scoring on a nightly basis.

The former Orlando center's improvement in the second half of the season has been remarkable.

  • First 35 Games: 16.1 PPG, 15.5 FGA, 43.5% FG, 23.5% Usage Rate
  • Last 35 Games: 20.0 PPG, 16.4 FGA, 52.3% FG, 25.6% Usage Rate

The back half of his 70-game campaign in Chicago this season has been better across the board. He's more involved in the offense, and he's settled into his role quite nicely, enjoying a solid boost in his scoring efficiency.

Vucevic has 15+ Points in 28 of his last 35 games, good for an 80% hit rate at this line. His last 15 games are even more impressive, as he's dropped 15+ in 13 of these 15 games. The most encouraging part of this stretch is that his only two misses came against Utah and Miami. Both teams are top five defenses against opposing centers this season. Milwaukee, on the other hand, is the 17th-ranked defense vs. centers, which is square in the middle of the pack.

The Bucks also rank 7th in Pace while the Bulls rank 15th, which should offer a fast-paced matchup for these two tonight.

Let's move on to Khris Middleton. This leg is a piece of cake. It's safe to expect at least 30 minutes of action for the Bucks' second option tonight, which means he's all but guaranteed a 15+ point performance. The three-time All-Star has reached this mark in 45 of 48 games when seeing at least 30 minutes this season, averaging 21.7 PPG within this sample. Even going back to last season, Middleton notched 15+ in 48 of 54 games when surpassing 30 minutes of action.

The success of both Vucevic and Middleton in head-to-head matchups this season also gives me a vote of confidence. Vucevic has posted 22, 19, and 19 in three games against Milwaukee this season. Meanwhile, Middleton has finished with 22 and 16 in his two games against Chicago this year.

With an outstanding track record at these lines for each of these players, the value of this two-leg parlay is undeniable. I have a ton of faith in the Bulls' center and the Bucks' swingman to take care of business this evening.
