The 8-3 Chicago Bulls head to the West Coast to take on the 10-1 Golden State Warriors in a highly anticipated matchup.
Heading into the season pundits considered both of these sides as huge threats on the offensive end, though it has been on the defensive end where they have earned their bread.
The Warriors are sitting 4th in the league for opponent points allowed with 102.3, while the Bulls are hot on their tail with 102.4.
This defensive dominance has been reflected in the pairs’ Over/Unders results this season, seven of the Dubs’ 11 games have gone Under the total points line, as has six of the Bulls’ games across the same trip.
The Warriors have scored freely across their last five fixtures, averaging 122 points, though all of those games have been against sides sitting below .500, in fact only three of the Dubs 11 games this season have been against sides with a winning record.
I think both sides are going to find scoring tough in this matchup, and at 221.5 the unders looks like a smart play here.
