Over/Under Total Pick:

Here is why we don’t like trends. These two teams have played to the over in 4 of the last 5. The thing is 4 of those games were from previous seasons and while the total was in the same range as tonight’s we think that defense is a must for both teams if they hope to get a “W”. The Bulls are just not going to win a game by lighting it up. Chicago has a grand total of 1 game in their last 12 where they have scored over 100 points and that was 101! On the season, in only 1 of their 26 wins has their opponent scored over 100 points. Take the UNDER 183.
