On paper it appears that the Bulls will need to keep the Wizards to 90 or fewer points to have a decent chance to win Game 2. However, the seasonal numbers in this matchup show Washington scoring 96 or greater points in 3 of the 4 games and identical 102 point totals in both games as the visitor. Speaking of scoring, Chicago’s point totals have been on the upward trend with 7 of their last 10 over their scoring average of 93.7. My numbers show this game in the 185 plus range which makes taking a position on the over the call. Take the OVER 181.5.
