The Chicago Bulls return home to host the Utah Jazz at the United Centerr on Saturday night. These teams already faced each other earlier this season and the Bulls took the win 114-107.

In their last 10 games, the Bulls are 7-3, averaging 119.3 points, 42.6 rebounds, 22.7 assists, 7.6 steals and 4.3 blocks per game while shooting 51.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 116.4 points per game.
The Jazz get here with a 20-21 record overall and are 8-14 on the road so far this season ranking 3rd in the Northwest Division. The Jazz are 15-13 against Western Conference opponents. Utah is ninth in the NBA with 11.8 offensive rebounds per game led by Jarred Vanderbilt averaging 2.6.

Utah are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games.
Utah are 6-2 SU in their last 8 games against Chicago.
The total has gone OVER in 5 of Utah's last 6 games on the road.
The total has gone UNDER in 9 of Utah's last 10 games when playing on the road against Chicago.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Chicago's last 8 games.
Chicago are 7-3 SU in their last 10 games.
The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Chicago's last 7 games against Utah.
The Jazz have been up and down this season but they rank #3 in offense in the NBA averaging 117 points per game, the only thing is they allow almost the same amount of points per game. They already lost against the Bulls at home earlier this season as well. The Bulls got something going on right now as they just beat the Nets and the 76ers scoring over 120 points per game but they'll be playing on b2b games. I expect a high scoring game as both teams are on fire offensively and don't play much defense. Take the over.
PICK: Over 235 (-110)
