Pick #1 – Brooklyn Nets 76ers at Chicago Bulls
Wednesday has found us again and that means another terrific night of NBA basketball as we get set our sights on the Brooklyn Nets (8-22) versus the Chicago Bulls (15-16) which will be a battle of two less then steller squads. This pick looks appealing out the gate as the sharp money is already shedding pushing this 213 OVER/UNDER down to a 212.5 over / under giving us nice value on the UNDER in this spot. Breaking down the facts and stats further we see that the The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Chicago's last 8 games and that the total has gone UNDER in 5 of Chicago's last 5 games at home so we should get a Bulls team playing their game at home which simply bodes very very well for the UNDERcoming through. The recent offensive and deffensive performance statistics give us averages of 207.25 and 215.61 highlighting the fact that the offense is just not there lately which in turn should keep this one easily UNDER. Both teams OVER/UNDER combined record for the year is 29-31-1 and it will be interesting to see if the UNDER trend being slightly favored continues. When it comes to pace of play Brooklyn is 1 and Chicago is 25 and we can fully expect the pace will be controlled by home team setting the tone for an almost sure UNDER. Equally favorable the Nets are 2 in posessions per game and the Bulls are the number 26 team in the league (dropping drastically) so there should be absolutely no absence of a slowed down game by the home squad who will get the game they want tonight. The public consensus for this game is 57% in favor of the over so we get the nice general consensus and public fade that we always like to have on our side in this one as well. The computer predicted scoring outcome of this game is 207 so a 212.5 UNDER play given all the above looks like a very tantalizing bet.
