Bulls vs 76ers - UNDER 189
It`s 3rd time in a row we will go with the Bulls home game to be a low-scoring, but you have to take your chances and bookies just doesn`t seem to learn.
It has been a long strech now for Chicago having low scoring games at home. It`s all about their defence, which proves to be one of the toughest to break and slow tempo game they love to play. Chicago bit reminds last years Detroit – of course the overall level is lower for the Bulls. Chicago has won 4 games in a row and 10 from last 13. They are limiting even high-scoring teams at home. From last 16 games only 2 games have gone total over 189 points, both against the leagues most offensive teams – Boston and Orlando.
Bookies are bit carried away here. Yes, Philadelphia has been scoring quite much lately, but the reason is that they have played with not so defensive minded teams. Against some defensive specialist teams the total has stayed pretty much low for the 76ers – 168 and 177 points against the Spurs, 180 against the Grizzlies and 181 points against the Bulls itself. So don’t expect the 76ers run our of blocks tonight, but to stay pretty much with the pace offered by the Bulls.
Chicago has been low-scoring and defensive minded at home lately. This tactics have proved to be success so they really will do everything tonight to limit 76ers. Teams met in Chicago on 10th of December and the score was 93-88 for 76ers. Expect something similar tonight and take under 189 with medium stakes!
