Wolves/Bulls under 189.5
Despite struggling, the Wolves still have one of the best defences in the league. In their last game the Wolves limited Indiana to 21 points in the second half, which was the third-fewest points an NBA team has scored in a second half since the shot clock was introduced in 1954. That just shows what Minny can do at the defensive end, but also tells you the fact that the Wolves prefer to play slow-pace halfcourt games. As a result Minny has had 12 of their 24 games staying below 179 points in total. If the Wolves want to win the Bulls tonight, they will have to show similar kind of big defensive effort.
Also the Bulls have been more successful when keeping the scores low. Chicago has allowed its opponents to score 93 points as an average over the last 10 games being 8-2 over that stretch. The Bulls can be especially happy with their defensive effort in their last game against Charlotte, when they held the Bobcats on 76 points. We expect nothing, but strong defence and controlled offensive sets from the Bulls side also tonight.
Those two teams met on 9th of December with Minnesota winning the game 91-81 (total 172 pts). Expect it to be low-scoring game again tonight and take under 189.5 points with medium stakes!
