Nets (-2) @ Bulls (208) 3:35 pm
Pick: Under 208
For just the third time all season, Brooklyn is a road favorite as it heads to the windy city. Only having to lay two points here against a 10-29 Chicago team makes the Nets side feel too easy which is why we’re looking more towards the total. Chicago is last in the NBA in points per game and the under is 25-13-1 this year in Bulls games. It’s the front end of a back-to-back for the Nets as they’ll head to Boston on Monday night. Our guess is that Brooklyn plays this one relatively conservatively knowing it has a much bigger challenge ahead tomorrow. In what feels like a get in and get out spot for the Nets, against an offensively challenged Bulls team, we’ll go under the total in this matinee. These teams met on Dec. 19 and the Nets won 96-93. This one is probably similar.
