2 units on Game Total OVER 204.5 -110 (risk 2 to return 3.82) RESULT: WIN
The Wizards showed on Saturday that they can score big against Chicago's defense as they put up 117. They actually scored 103 in Chicago the game prior which is another, maybe bigger sign that they have figured out how to put up points against a team that has limited opponents field-goal percentage all season long. Both of these teams are now averaging 105 points per game in the series. That, combined with some situational trends spells OVER for tonight's game. Games with a total of 200 to 209.5 involving a team off a 110+ point performance and a game in which 215+ points were scored, have gone OVER to the tune of 59-21 (74%) over the last 5 seasons. The Bulls have gone OVER 21-8 following a game in which they allowed 110+ points over the last 3 seasons. Two stars on this one to sail over for the fourth straight game.
