The Bulls and Bucks are facing off against one another for the first time this season and if they play like they have in the past, the under should be a fine play for your NBA Picks. Teasing it together with the over on the Suns and Spurs for Thursday night.
Two Team Teaser
The Bucks and Bulls are quite familiar with one another, but this will be their first meeting with their new looks. The Bucks, of course, are without Khris Middleton, while the Bulls have been remade. However, Chicago may be without Rajon Rondo again tonight, as he sprained his ankle earlier in the week and had to miss Tuesday night.
However, even though these teams know each other well, the Bucks have been horrible on defense lately. Milwaukee has allowed over 115 points in their last three games and at home, they have allowed nearly 105 points per game.
The Bulls, on the other hand, have played better, but their road defense has been very good this season. Even though both teams have given up some points at times in their divisional games, I see a slow-down and fist fight between these two.
The other leg of our teaser is the Spurs, who are coming off a back to back to play the rested Suns. Phoenix has been playing really well lately behind some nice performances from Eric Bledsoe and if he can drop another 25 or 30 points, I see the over as a nice play here.
Phoenix has cashed the over in seven of their last eight games, while the Spurs are 8-6 cashing the over on the road this season. With the Suns allowing 111 points at home and 113.4 in their last five games, look for the Spurs to put up lots of points for one of your NBA picks, even off the back to back.
