The Oklahoma City Thunder will visit the United Center to face the Chicago Bulls. These teams met in January and Chicago barely beat the Thunder 111-110 on the road but OKC counted with their star Gilgeous-Alexander who scored 31 pts.
OKLAHOMA CITY THUNDER
The Thunder took their 4th straight loss last against the 76ers. Derrick Favors tallied a team-high 16 points on 8-for-13 shooting and grabbed nine rebounds. Darius Bazley added 14 points an 15 rebounds in a losing effort for the Thunder. They have been in terrible shape as they’ve lost 11 of their past 14 games.
Oklahoma City is averaging 100.9 points per game and rank 30th in the league shooting for only 41.79% FG. Defensively they are giving up 107.6 points per game.
The Bulls will try to win their 2nd straight game as they beat the Twolves on a high scoring game. DeMar DeRozan delivered another big performance and got plenty of help along the way, he had 35 points, Nikola Vucevic added 26 and Chicago used a big fourth quarter to beat the Timberwolves 134-122.
Chicago have won 20 of their first 28 home games and trail Miami by one full game for the top spot in the Eastern Conference.
The team is averaging 112 points per game but has struggled defensively, giving up 110.2 points per game.
Oklahoma City are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road.
Oklahoma City are 0-7 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the Eastern Conference conference.
Chicago is 7-3 ATS in its last 10 games.
The total has gone OVER in 8 of Chicago's last 9 games.
Even with the Bulls struggling defensively, Oklahoma have scored less than 100 pts per game in their last 3 games so the over is not an option for me. Last time these teams faced, Bulls barely won by 1 point and the total went under and I think this game will stay under the total again.
PICK: Under 220.5 (-110)
