Chicago is looking really good lately and the Clippers look even better. Even though we think about the offensive prowess of both teams, they each might be better on defense, making tonight a great night for an under play in your NBA betting picks.

Bulls vs. Clippers

The Chicago Bulls without Rajon Rondo look like a team that could challenge the Cleveland Cavaliers. They may not be able to beat them, but early in the season they look like the only speed bump to prevent Cleveland from reaching the Finals.

However, even though Chicago has built more of an offensive approach with Fred Hoiberg, their defense is starting to show up again. Right now Chicago is 8th best in the NBA allowing only 103 points per 100 possessions, while the Clippers are the best defensive team in the league, allowing only 98.1 points per 100 possessions.

The Bulls have been playing slower this season with their exceptional guard play and with Robin Lopez and Taj Gibson down low, it gives Chicago a nice counter to DeAndre Jordan and Blake Griffin.

Simply put, the Bulls are coming off one of the lower scoring games of the season and this one might be similar to that. These two teams are going to play old school, defensive and half court basketball tonight and a total of 204 is just too high.
