Over Under Total Pick:
The Trail Blazers have been struggling in the last two games shooting 40.7 and 40.6 percent from the field. It certainly won’t help the cause with Mo Williams maybe sitting out tonight with a hip injury. However, the trends in this match-up all point to the over with 3 of the last 4 and 7 of the last 10 surpassing the posted total. The Spurs offense was impressive last night putting up 104 on the board against the Bulls which just happened to be the most points given up by Chicago in 22 games! Take the OVER 211.
