Chicago has been pretty good lately and with the Warriors without Kevin Durant, they might have their eye on getting a win. However, the better play seems to to be on the total.

The loss of Kevin Durant is going to hurt the Warriors, but luckily for them, it looks like he could be back before the playoffs. That won’t help them tonight, though, as they are -7½ favorites on the road against the Bulls.

Chicago has been playing well lately covering four of their last five, but for this play, we are going with the total of 219½ or 220 at some shops.

The Warriors have been very good at cashing the under against the East this season. They are 15-7 cashing the under in 22 non-conference games this season and when they are on the road against the East. They are 9-3 cashing the under when playing on the road against the East and they have cashed the under in six straight road non-conference games.

In those six games, the Warriors’ defense has been strong, allowing only 105.8 points per game. Plus, the Bulls haven’t been great when playing at home against the West,

The Bulls’ offensive rating is only 103.1 points per 100 possessions when playing at home against the West and they are 6-3 cashing the under in those nine games. Look for the Chicago defense to be engaged against this top-tier opponent.
