MONDAY NBA FAN APPRECIATION O/U ANNIHILATOR!
Chicago vs. New York,
04/01/2019 19:30 EDT,
Score: 105 - 113
Total: -115/+213 Over
I'm playing Chicago/NY OVER the total. This season's previous meeting had an O/U line of 213. (It finished with 231 points.) That was back in November, before either team was eliminated from playoff contention. Now, with both teams playing out the string, I expect to see little defensive intensity and that to lead to another high-scoring affair. The Bulls, who have given up more than 110 points in five straight, have seen the OVER go 14-9-2 their last 25 games overall. Note that the OVER is also 11-5-1 the past 17 times that they were off b2b home losses. Over their last five, they're allowing an average of 117.6 ppg. Thats nearly identical to the 117.8 ppg that the Knicks are allowing over their last five. The last time that the Knicks faced a non-playoff team, they combined with the Lakers for 247 points. The last time that the Bulls faced a non-playoff team, they combined with the Wizards for 246 points. Expect another high-scoring affair.
